A Storm of Swords

After Daenerys Targaryen conquered the city of Astapor, she installed a council of three men to rule after her departure. Cleon stirred up the people of Astapor, claiming that the council was attempting to reinstall the deposed Good Masters. With the backing of the people, Cleon executed the council members and installed himself as king.

Cleon then sent a messenger to Daenerys in Meereen, offering a pact between Meereen and Astapor to attack Yunkai and to seal it, he would put aside his wives and wed her.[3]
