Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

The acting Hand of the King, Tyrion Lannister concocts a plan to prevent the Dornish from supporting Lannister enemies by pledging his niece, Myrcella Baratheon as a future wife of Trystane. Doran Martell accepts the betrothal offer, and Myrcella departs King's Landing to Sunspear together with Ser Arys Oakheart, a member of the Kingsguard.[5]

A Feast for Crows

Trystane and Myrcella get along well, often playing the game Cyvasse. Myrcella wins more than Trystane but Ser Arys Oakheart notes Trystane does not mind.[2]

When Arianne conspires to have Myrcella crowned as ruling Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, she travels with Myrcella and Ser Arys through the desert in the direction of the Hellholt. Myrcella's bedmaid Rosamund Lannister is left to impersonate the princess. Ser Arys prevented Trystane from visiting his betrothed because he would notice the difference.[4]
