Trystane Truefyre was a squire to Ser Perkin the Flea, a hedge knight, during the Dance of the Dragons.[2]

History

During the riot of King's Landing, Ser Perkin crowned Trystane king, declaring him the natural son of King Viserys I Targaryen.[2] After Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen fled King's Landing Perkin installed Trystane in the Red Keep and started issuing edicts during the Moon of the Three Kings.[3]

When King Aegon II Targaryen retook King's Landing, Trystane was captured and executed, but not before receiving the boon of knighthood.[3]

Behind the Scenes

Trystane and Perkin the Flea may be homages by George R. R. Martin to Perkin Warbeck, who claimed to be Richard of Shrewsbury, son of King Edward IV of England.
