A Feast for Crows

The Lords Declarant, after sending the letters, mass their forces beneath the Eyrie, intending to blockade the fortress until Lord Petyr surrenders. Each Lord brings a thousand soldiers. Queen Cersei Lannister sends a letter ordering safe passage for Petyr but otherwise the terms would be decided amongst themselves.[1]

After some time of denying access of food and other goods from the outside to the Eyrie, the Lords Declarant negotiate a meeting and arrive with Lyn Corbray to confront Petyr with their objections to his rule and their insistence at taking Lord Robert Arryn away from him. However, their demands are stymied by a display of belligerence from Corbray, which shames the Lords Declarant into giving Petyr a year to show his prowess at raising Robert and ruling the Eyrie. As it turns out, Petyr has his own agent among them and believes the weaknesses of the Lords will make them easy to manipulate from now on.

Lord Yohn Royce sees Alayne Stone during the proceedings, but shows no sign of recognizing her.[2]

Lord Benedar, Lady Waynwood, and Ser Symond attended the wedding of Lord Lyonel Corbray in Gulltown, an event arranged by Petyr Baelish. The other Lords Declarant shun the wedding. Petyr had bought up the debts of the Waynwoods and persuaded Lady Anya to give permission for Sansa to wed her ward, Harrold Hardyng, if Harry agrees.[3]
