A Feast for Crows

Lord Gorold sends his son, Gormond to inform Aeron Greyjoy of the death of his brother, King Balon. Aeron travels to Hammerhorn and discusses the news with Gorold and his maester. There Gorold gives him further news, informing Aeron of Euron Greyjoy's arrival and the death of Lord Sawane Botley.

Gorold attends the kingsmoot, where he is listed as one of Victarion Greyjoy's supporters.[1] After Euron's speech, Aeron spies Gorold shouting his support for Euron.[3] After the Battle of the Shield Islands, he is spotted by Victarion and Nute the Barber talking with Rodrik Harlaw and Dunstan Drumm in the castle yard at Lord Hewett's Town. They discuss their fears that the gains from the battle are little compared to the enmity of the Reach they have earned.[4]
