Lord of Fair Isle
The old Lord of Fair Isle during the reign of King Maegor I Targaryen died along his first son at the Battle Beneath the Gods Eye in 43 AC fighting for Prince Aegon the Uncrowned. His grandson, Ser Franklyn Farman was wounded in the battle but survived. He brought the corpse of his grandfather and uncle home. The lordship of Fair Isle passed on Marq Farman, Franklyn's father.
Ser Franklyn, now Lord Franklyn, had never liked the princess and demanded her to leave his domain at once. Rhaena returned to Fair Isle a few years later when she was searching for her missing daughter, Princess Aerea Targaryen. Rhaena didn't receive a warmer welcome than before from the Lord of Fair Isle. Lord Franklyn was dead by 88 AC when King Jaehaerys I Targaryen came to Fair Isle in one of his royal progress.
During the Dance of the Dragons, Lord Dalton Greyjoy's ironborn invaded Fair Isle. Lord Farman sheltered behind his walls sending out pleas for help but it never came. The ironborn eventually captured the castle and took Lord Farman and his family captives; his five daughters became salt wives to Lord Dalton and his brother, Veron Greyjoy. Lord Farman and his sons were ransomed back to Casterly Rock for their weights in silver.
According to semi-canon sources, Lord Farman built a fleet of warships to defend his coasts against the ironborn, in defiance of Lord Tytos Lannister, who did not wish to give offense to the Greyjoys of Pyke.
