Prior to the War of Conquest, House Bar Emmon was sworn to House Durrandon, the Storm Kings from Storm's End, but had closer ties to House Targaryen of nearby Dragonstone. When Aegon the Conqueror launched his invasion of Westeros, Lord Bar Emmon supported him instead of the Storm King, Argilac the Arrogant. With the creation of the crownlands after the Conquest, the Bar Emmons became sworn directly to Dragonstone, instead of House Baratheon of Storm's End, who had replaced the Durrandons.[4]

When the realm began to turn against King Maegor I Targaryen for his nephew Prince Jaehaerys, Lord Bar Emmon was among the score of lesser lords who gathered at his command.[5] However, when Maegor mysteriously died upon the Iron Throne, Lord Bar Emmon fled back to Sharp Point.[6] Lord Bar Emmon was one of the first lords who traveled to Dragonstone to speak with Jaehaerys I during his minority.[7]

A Lord Bar Emmon died of the Shivers in the winter of 59 AC.[8]

Lord Bar Emmon ruling in 101 AC supported Laenor Velaryon's claim in the Great Council.[9][10][11]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Lord Bar Emmon was a member of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen's black council.[12] After the greens' victory at the Battle of the Honeywine, he suggested for Rhaenyra to bend the knees to King Aegon II Targaryen, but the queen dismissed his advice.[9][13]
