Simon was gallant and handsome.[1] He was an accomplished singer, harper, and jouster.[4]


Simon's father, Lord Dondarrion, hosted King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and Queen Alysanne Targaryen at Blackhaven in 54 AC. Simon charmed the queen with his songs of star-crossed lovers and fallen kings.[4] The victor at the tourney celebrating the completion of the Dragonpit in 55 AC, Ser Simon named Princess Daenerys Targaryen as queen of love and beauty.[1] He was defeated by Ser Ryam Redwyne at the tourney celebrating the tenth year of Jaehaerys's coronation in late 58 AC, however.[1]
