Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

After following House Tyrell in supporting Renly Baratheon, Alester rallies his house and is the first of those who swore to Renly to go over to Stannis Baratheon's cause.[3] He is the first of the new lords to discard the Faith of the Seven and take up the worship of R'hllor.[2] After joining with Stannis, he briefly becomes Stannis's Hand of the King.[4]

A Storm of Swords

After Stannis's defeat at the Battle of the Blackwater, it is left to Queen Selyse and Lord Alester to rule in Stannis's name while the king broods. Alester is given the king's seal by Selyse, to speak in Stannis's name.[5] For their support of Stannis, the Florents are stripped of Brightwater Keep by the Iron Throne.[6]

Alester is imprisoned in Dragonstone after he attempts to make peace with House Lannister in hopes of having Brightwater returned to him.[1] His brother, Ser Axell Florent, denounces Alester as having betrayed Stannis.[7]

A Feast for Crows

Alester is reported to have been burned as a traitor.[8]
