The father of Petyr Baelish was "the smallest of small lords" in the Vale of Arryn.[1] His first name is unknown.


His grandfather was a Braavosi sellsword in the service of Lord Corbray, and his father was a hedge knight who took the head of the Titan of Braavos as his sigil when he was knighted.[2] According to semi-canon sources, it was the hedge knight who acquired a small bit of land and a keep on the smallest of the Fingers.[3]

During the War of the Ninepenny Kings, Lord Baelish became friends with Lord Hoster Tully. He later "cashed in" on the friendship to have his son Petyr fostered at Riverrun.[4]
