Yorbert Royce was the Lord of Runestone and head of House Royce during the late reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[1][2]


Lord Yorbert Royce was the regent and the Lord Protector of the Vale during the minority of Lady Jeyne Arryn,[1][2] after her lord father and elder brothers were slain by the Stone Crows.[4] In that capacity, he attended the Great Council of 101 AC in her stead.[1][2]

Rhea Royce, the heir to Runestone, was married to Prince Daemon Targaryen in 97 AC.[2] By the time of the accession of King Viserys I Targaryen in 103 AC,[5] Rhea had succeeded Yorbert as Lady of Runestone, indicating that he had passed away.[2]
