Hugh Grandison, called Greybeard,[2] is the Lord of Grandview and the head of House Grandison.[1]

Appearance and Character

Hugh is an older man whose once-grey beard has become white as snow.[1]

Arianne Martell regards the Greybeard to be pleasant and more robust than others his age, but undesirable.[1]


At one point, Hugh was proposed as a potential betrothal to Princess Arianne Martell by her father, Doran, the Prince of Dorne. In order to facilitate the proposal, the Greybeard visited Dorne, but he fell asleep during courses at the welcoming feast. While Hugh slept, Garin challenged Arianne to tie his beard into a knot, but she refused. Though Arianne found him less unappealing than the other old suitors her father proposed, she turned down Hugh like all the others.[1]
