Family

The Appendix of A Feast for Crows states Eldon is the uncle of Stannis Baratheon, the father of Aemon Estermont, and the brother of Lomas Estermont. However, the Appendix of A Dance with Dragons states Eldon is the great-uncle of Stannis and has two sons, Aemon and Lomas. See House Estermont/Theories for more information about this topic.
