Royce Baratheon[N 1] was the Lord of Storm's End and the head of House Baratheon during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.[2]

History

Royce was the posthumous son of Lord Borros Baratheon of Storm's End by his wife, Lady Elenda Caron. Born seven days after his father died at the Battle of the Kingsroad, Royce succeeded him as the Lord of Storm's End and Lord Paramount of the Stormlands at birth. If a boy, Lord Borros had instructed Elenda to name their child Aegon, after King Aegon II Targaryen. However, she instead named him after her father, Lord Royce Caron of Nightsong.[1][3]

During Royce's infancy, his mother Elenda ruled as regent. With the death of Aegon II and the ascension of King Aegon III Targaryen, Lady Elenda decided to not renew the war, fearing for her son's safety, for he was the future of House Baratheon.[2]

Notes:
  1. Unproven, but widely accepted as fact by maesters and members of House Targaryen.
  2. Uncertain, may be Davos Baratheon.

Notes

  1. Earlier editions of Fire & Blood named him Olyver Baratheon. This was an error, as he was named after Lord Royce Caron. Later editions of Fire & Blood correct his name to Royce.
