Ser Maladon Moore was a knight from House Moore and a member of the Kingsguard during the reign of King Maegor I Targaryen.[2]

History

When Queen Ceryse Hightower suddenly passed away in 45 AC, some alleged that King Maegor I Targaryen tried to have her tongue removed after a shrewish remark, and Maladon held her down while Ser Owen Bush accidentally slit her throat. However, this rumor was likely fabricated to further blacken Maegor's reign.[1][2] When the king suspected Queen Tyanna of the Tower of treason, Maladon and Owen were dispatched to seize the queen and deliver her to the dungeons, where Maegor was said to have slain her while Maladon was present.[3]

After Maegor died in 48 AC and his nephew King Jaehaerys I Targaryen took the Iron Throne, Maladon was accused of being involved in the death of Queen Ceryse, allegedly restraining her when Ser Owen accidentally killed her. Maladon denied these charges, insisting she died of "shrewishness". While the charges were never proven, Maladon lost his head for his involvement in Queen Tyanna's death, of which he was guilty.[1]
