Lord Symond Staunton was a member of House Staunton who served as master of laws to King Aerys II Targaryen.[1]


When the tourney at Harrenhal was announced, based on the notion that Prince Rhaegar Targaryen was secretly funding the tourney as a way to call a Great Council to discuss the rule of King Aerys II Targaryen, Symond unsuccessfully suggested to prohibit tourneys. When Rhaegar won the final joust, Symond and Lord Qarlton Chelsted inflamed the king's suspicions by declaring that Rhaegar had taken part only to win the favor of the smallfolk and remind the lords present that he was a true heir to King Aegon I Targaryen. Because Rhaegar crowned Lyanna Stark as the queen of love and beauty, Symond considered it an attempt to win support from House Stark of Winterfell.[1] Symond's fate during Robert's Rebellion is as yet unknown.
