A Feast for Crows
Before the kingsmoot, Hotho offers his support to Victarion Greyjoy and offers him a daughter for his queen. Victarion promises Hotho he will take a look at the girl after he has been crowned. At the kingsmoot, Aeron Greyjoy spots Hotho calling out his support for Euron Greyjoy following Euron's speech.
At the feast to celebrate the taking of the Shields, Hotho reports to Victarion that Ser Harras Harlaw has captured Greyshield. As Harras is named the new Lord of Greyshield for his actions, Hotho believes this makes him the new heir to the Ten Towers.
