Grover Tully was a Lord of Riverrun and head of House Tully during the Dance of the Dragons.

History

Lord Grover supported Prince Viserys Targaryen instead of Laenor Velaryon at the Great Council in 101 AC. He wanted to support King Aegon II Targaryen and the greens during the Dance of the Dragons, but he was too aged and his grandson, Ser Elmo Tully, kept the Tully banners at Riverrun. Elmo instead later supported Aegon's rival, Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen. Grover passed away soon after the Second Battle of Tumbleton and he was succeeded by Elmo.[1] According to Mushroom, Grover died of apoplexy at his grandson's actions.[2]
