Baldric I Durrandon, known as Baldric the Cunning, was a Storm King of the stormlands from House Durrandon.[1]


During the Andal invasion of the stormlands, the Andals conquered part of Cape Wrath. To prevent them from conquering all of the rainwood, Baldric I manipulated the petty Andal kings and warlords into attacking each other.[2]

Behind the Scenes

Baldric may be a reference by George R. R. Martin to the character of Baldrick from Blackadder. One of Baldrick's catchphrases is "I have a cunning plan", the irony being Baldrick's plans are rarely cunning.
