Early Life

The night before the Battle of the Redgrass Field she lay with dozens of men, which earned her a new nickname, Redgrass Jenny. After the battle, Jenny established herself in King's Landing at an establishment called the Pussywillows. There she raised her two children: her son, who would be known as Ser Glendon Flowers, and her daughter who would become a whore. After Jenny died, the other women working at the Pussywillows raised the two children and told them the story that the mother had put about that the two children were the result of her coupling with Quentyn.[1]

Glendon was taught the knightly arts by an old squire that lived nearby. Half a year before the Whitewalls tourney, Glendon was knighted by Ser Morgan Dunstable in front of two dozen witnesses only after Glendon's sister agreed to give up her maidenhead to Morgan in exchange.[1]

While still reeling from the effects of the torture, Glendon unhorsed Daemon in the first tilt, proving his innocence.[1]
