Benedict Royce was a member of the junior branch of House Royce that may or may not have become House Royce of the Gates of the Moon in 300 AC.[N 1]

History

Benedict was a younger son of Lord Raymar Royce. He was married to Jocelyn Stark and had three daughters. According to Catelyn Stark, one married a Waynwood, another a Corbray, and the third might have married a Templeton.[2][3]

Behind the Scenes

In the first edition of The World of Ice & Fire, the Stark family tree lists Benedict Royce as Benedict Rogers. This was confirmed to be an error. In fact, according to Elio Garcia, co-author of The World of Ice & Fire, Martin mistakenly called Royce "Benedict Vance" in earlier notes. Although the mistake was corrected at the time, Royce was accidentally spelled Rogers later on.[4]

Notes

  1. At this time, it is uncertain if Raymar Royce was an ancestor of Nestor Royce, or if "junior branch" refers to another branch of House Royce entirely.
