King Cleon of Astapor, also known as Cleon the Great and the Butcher King, is the current ruler of Astapor. He has three daughters by his first wife and two of his newer wives are with child.[1]

History

Cleon was once a slave owned by Grazdan mo Ullhor, where he worked as a butcher and a cook.[2] It was said he could cut up a pig faster than any other man in Astapor.[1]

Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

After Daenerys Targaryen conquers the city of Astapor, she installs a council of three men to rule after her departure. Cleon stirs up the people of Astapor, claiming that the council is attempting to reinstall the deposed Good Masters. With the backing of the people, Cleon executes the council members and installs himself as king. He also has the male children of the deposed Good Masters kidnapped and castrated to train them into new Unsullied.[1]

Cleon then sends a messenger to Daenerys in Meereen, offering a pact between Meereen and Astapor to attack Yunkai and to seal it, he would put aside his wives and wed her.[1]

A Dance with Dragons

Cleon was defeated at a battle at the Horns of Hazzat. He was forced to flee back to Astapor, with his faux Unsullied following him in retreat.[3]

Cleon is slain by his own men when he commands them to march out and attack the Yunkai'i. He is succeeded by a string of unsuccessful rulers, including a man calling himself Cleon the Second, his concubine, called Queen Whore, and Cleon the Second's killer, called King Cutthroat.[4] When the Yunkai'i attack Astapor during the Siege of Astapor, Cleon's body is disinterred and clad in armor after the Green Grace of Astapor sees a vision that he would deliver them from the Yunkai'i. The corpse is then strapped onto a horse to lead the remnants of his new, subpar Unsullied into battle. Every man in the sortie was killed.[5]
