Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Ser Jon is among the nobles who declare for Renly Baratheon and is present beneath the walls of Bitterbridge when Lady Catelyn Stark arrives.[2] When the parley at Storm's End between the brothers Renly and Stannis Baratheon breaks down and battle seems imminent, Jon offers to lead the van into battle.[3]

Jon goes over to Stannis's forces after Renly's death during the siege of Storm's End. The castle's castellan, Ser Cortnay Penrose, proposes to settle the siege with single combat. Jon advises Stannis to take him up on the offer. Jon is prepared to take the challenge himself, although he admits that he is not as good as Lord Bryce Caron or Ser Guyard Morrigen.[4]

Jon fights for Stannis at the Battle of the Blackwater but is captured by Lothor Brune. He bends the knee to King Joffrey I Baratheon.[5]

A Feast for Crows

Jon's wife, Janna Tyrell, hawks with Margaery Tyrell in King's Landing.[6]
