Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

At the onset of the War of the Five Kings, Eldon supports Renly Baratheon.[3] After Renly's death, he goes over to Stannis Baratheon and fights in the Battle of the Blackwater.

A Storm of Swords

Following the defeat at the Blackwater Rush, Eldon is either captured or changes sides and is among the Estermonts who swear fealty to King Joffrey I Baratheon.[4]

A Feast for Crows

Lord Eldon is betrothed and married to Sylva Santagar very quickly, as her punishment for having conspired with Arianne Martell to place Princess Myrcella Baratheon on the Iron Throne.[1]


There were great lords and noble knights in that company too: sour old Lord Celtigar, the Red Crab; Ser Bonifer the Good; Lord Estermont, more ancient even than Celtigar...[5]

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.
