Beldon was a maester of the Citadel who served at Casterly Rock for Lord Gerold Lannister and later Lord Tytos Lannister.

History

Beldon wrote in detail about the rivalry between Ellyn Reyne and Jeyne Marbrand, the lady wives of Ser Tion and Tytos Lannister, two sons of the Lord of Casterly Rock, Gerold Lannister.[1]

According to a semi-canon source, Beldon surmised that Lady Ellyn named her two daughters by her second husband, after the late wife and niece of Lord Gerold, who both died mysteriously, to hurt him.[2] Beldon was relieved when Ser Jason Lannister, another son of Lord Gerold, left Casterly Rock for Feastfires after his marriage to Marla Prester as he could have caused problem for Lord Tytos.[2]

Quotes

His lordship wants only to be loved. So he laughs, and takes no offense, and forgives, and bestows honors and offices and lavish gifts on those who mock him and defy him, thinking thereby to win their loyalty. Yet the more he laughs and gives, the more they despise him.[2]

—Beldon's letter to the Citadel
