Ser Glendon Flowers was a hedge knight during the reign of King Aerys I Targaryen. He referred to himself as Ser Glendon Ball, but was commonly referred to as the Knight of the Pussywillows.

History

Glendon's mother was a camp follower, known as Penny Jenny to those who visited her. Among her known lovers was Ser Quentyn Ball. 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, Redgrass 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 she 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 Ser Quentyn Ball. He was taught the knightly arts by an old squire that lived nearby. Half a year before the Whitewalls Tourney, Ser Glendon was knighted by Ser Morgan Dunstable in front of two dozen witnesses[2] only after Ser Glendon's sister agreed to give up her virginity to Ser Morgan in exchange.[3]
