A Song of Ice and Fire

  • When Ser Oberyn Martell was no older than sixteen, he was found abed with old Lord Yronwood paramount and they fought a duel. Although it was only to first blood, Lord Yronwood's wounds festered and he died shortly afterwards, originating rumors that the Red Viper's blade had been poisoned. Because of this Lord Doran Martell preferred to "repay a blood debt" when he felt obliged to send his secondborn child Quentyn Martell to foster to a certain Lord Ormond at Yronwood, although he was sent more than 10 years after the incident. Probably, Lord Ormond was Anders' father and Old Lord Yronwood's son.
  • Following Doran's instructions, Anders Yronwood mustered and maintained an army on the Boneway during the War of the Five Kings.
  • Quentyn Martell served at Yronwood (first with Lord Ormond and then with Lord Anders) as page and squire. He chose to be knighted by Lord Anders himself instead of his uncle Oberyn Martell.
  • Ser Cletus Yronwood was seen with Quentyn Martell on the Planky Town, looking for a ship.
  • Since his son and his maester were traveling with Quentyn to the east, with all probability Lord Anders Yronwood had been entrusted by Doran Martell with the critical secret of his support for the Targaryen restoration.
