Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

Ser Albar is present with his father, Lord Nestor Royce, at the Eyrie when Tyrion Lannister demands trial by combat. Albar offers himself as a champion for Lady Lysa Arryn, but she selects Ser Vardis Egen instead.[2]

A Feast for Crows

Albar and Nestor travel to the Eyrie to hear Marillion confess that he killed Lysa. Albar does not like Marillion, as the singer made a song about pigs eating a falcon's droppings. As the arms of House Arryn displays a falcon and Albar and his father were in service to House Arryn, they consider the song insulting.[3] Lord Petyr Baelish gains their support by granting the Gates of the Moon to Nestor, claiming it had been Lysa's intention to do so before her passing. After the Royces depart, Petyr informs Sansa Stark that Lysa had considered Nestor to be a rock and Albar a clod.[3]
