A Feast for Crows
Hotho Humpback goes to Ten Towers to support Asha Greyjoy's bid to become Queen of the Iron Islands. He gives his cousin, Lord Rodrik Harlaw, a copy of Archmaester Marwyn's The Book of Lost Books in the hope it might convince Rodrik to marry his daughter.
At the kingsmoot Hotho offers his support to Victarion Greyjoy if he agrees to marry his daughter. Victarion says that Hotho is Lord Rodrik's heir, though Rodrik himself had designated their cousin Harras the Knight. He switches to Euron Greyjoy after hearing his speech.
Hotho reports Ser Harras's capture of Greyshield to Victarion at the feast celebrating their victory at the Battle of the Shield Islands. With Harras named Lord of Greyshield by Euron Crow's Eye, Hotho Humpback is the new heir to Ten Towers and the titles of Lord of the Ten Towers, Lord of Harlaw, and Harlaw of Harlaw.
