Groleo is an aging Pentoshi man.[3]

Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

Captain Groleo is sent by Illyrio Mopatis with three ships, including the great cog Saduleon, to bring Daenerys Targaryen back to Pentos. Daenerys instead renames the ships after Targaryen dragons[4] and commands Groleo to head for Slaver's Bay.[3]

During the siege of Meereen Daenerys realizes she cannot take the city without siege engines, but there is no available wood because the Meereenese have burned all nearby trees. Daenerys commands Groleo to drive his ships ashore, and her Unsullied and sellswords use the wood of the ships to create siege engines, turtles and battering rams to take the city.[5]

A Dance with Dragons

Groleo is made an admiral by Daenerys Targaryen, but without a fleet it is an empty title. He inspects the thirteen ships brought by Xaro Xhoan Daxos and pronounces them seaworthy.[6]

Groleo, Daario Naharis, Jhogo, Hero and three of the kin of Hizdahr zo Loraq are given as hostages as a guarantee for the safe conduct of the Yunkish commanders who visit Meereen when a peace treaty is made between Meereen and Yunkai. Bloodbeard subsequently kills Groleo and presents the head of the captain to Hizdahr in retaliation for the death of the Yunkish commander, Yurkhaz zo Yunzak, who was killed when Drogon appeared in the fighting pits.

Ser Barristan Selmy is enraged and wishes to kill Bloodbeard. The Brazen Beasts who are in the room when the head is presented are eager to cut down the Yunkish nobles in retaliation, but are puzzled when the order is not given by Hizdahr. Barristan has Hizdahr request Groleo's body be returned so he can be decently buried. Barristan remembers Groleo had a wife, children and grandchildren and all the man wanted to do was return home to Pentos.

When Barristan, Skahaz mo Kandaq, the Unsullied and the Brazen Beasts seize control of Meereen they use the password Groleo in honor of the admiral.
