Blackshield was the identity taken by a mystery knight during the reign of King Aerys II Targaryen.


Blackshield participated as a mystery knight at a tourney held at Oldtown sometime between 278 AC and 281 AC. He was unhorsed by Barristan the Bold of the Kingsguard, who unmasked him and revealed him as the Bastard of Uplands.[1]

Blackshield's given name is unknown. His surname is presumably "Flowers", the bastard name of the Reach, as that is where House Mullendore's seat of Uplands is located.
