Roland Blackwood was a member of House Blackwood during the reign of King Daeron II Targaryen.


Roland participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC.[2][N 1]


His relation to the main branch of House Blackwood is unknown. Roland may have been a third son, as his personal coat of arms depicted three weirwood trees on a scarlet field.[2]


  1. Roland is not listed as a knight, per the Blackwood tradition of worshiping the old gods. Although the tourney was reserved for knights only (The Hedge Knight), according to George R. R. Martin and Elio García allowances were made for the Blackwoods because of their high birth.
