Lord Eddard Stark uses the book as an aid to discover the truth behind the parentage of King Robert I Baratheon's children, Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen.[1]


  1. Although Eddard Stark describes the book as being "over a century old" and that "scarcely a man now alive had yet been born when Malleon had compiled his dusty lists of weddings, births, and deaths", the marriage between Gowen Baratheon and Tya Lannister is recorded in the book and it occurred "some ninety years ago". Therefore we should not take Eddard's comments literally.
