Lord Nestor is rejected as a possible groom for Lady Lysa Arryn. He greets Catelyn Tully and her companions when they visit the Gates of the Moon en rout to the Eyrie.[1]

A Storm of Swords

Nestor's frolicsome daughter, Myranda Royce, keeps the Gates of the Moon for her father.[3]

A Feast for Crows

In his position as High Steward of the Vale Nestor is also caretaker of the Gates of the Moon. Because he virtually ruled the Vale for so long, Nestor feels he is owed for his long years of service. In order to secure his loyalty, Lord Protector Petyr Baelish grants him hereditary lordship over the keep after the War of the Five Kings, forming House Royce of the Gates of the Moon. The parchment contains the Arryn seal, but was signed by Petyr as Lysa was murdered before she could sign it.[2] Lord Nestor escorts the Lords Declarant up to the Eyrie to meet with Petyr and Lord Robert Arryn.[4]
