Book(s) Fire & Blood (mentioned)

Alfador was a maester who served House Hightower at the Hightower in Oldtown during the reign of Viserys I Targaryen.[1]


After Grand Maester Mellos passed away, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen recommended that her own maester, Gerardys, take his place as Grand Maester. Queen Alicent Hightower, on the other hand, wanted Maester Alfador named to the office. Beset from both sides, King Viserys chose neither, reminding both his wife and daughter that the Citadel would decide who filled the office. Archmaester Orwyle, in the end, was selected by the conclave as the new Grand Maester.[1]
