Marq Grafton was the Lord of Gulltown and head of House Grafton at the time of Robert's Rebellion.[1]

History

Lord Marq stayed loyal to King Aerys II Targaryen instead of following his liege, Lord Jon Arryn, into rebellion. He called the other loyalists to aid him in barring Jon and Lord Robert Baratheon from entering the port of Gulltown, but was slain by Robert at the Gulltown walls when the rebels took the city.[2][3] He was succeeded by his son, Ser Gerold Grafton.[1]
