A Feast for Crows

During the kingsmoot, Gylbert puts his name forth for King of the Iron Islands, supported by three champions who are his sons. He promises to lead the ironborn to a land without winter beyond the Sunset Sea where death holds no sway and every man will be a king and his wife a queen. His gifts of whalebone and bronze-banded warhorns are considered poor and left for lesser men. His claim is dismissed quickly, with not even all of the Farwynds supporting him.[3]
