Lord Varys Posted July 26, 2019 Share Posted July 26, 2019 4 hours ago, The Wondering Wolf said: It is stated about Cregan Stark's trials: So four Kingsguard in the city, three elsewhere (Marston Waters in Essos, Willis Fell in Storm's End, no idea about the third one). But when the riverlords entered King's Landing two days after Aegon's death, they were welcomed by Not sure where the fifth Kingsguard suddenly would have come from (and where he would have gone before Cregan's arrival), so one of the quotes seems to be wrong. Either there were five Kingsguard present at the time of Aegon's death (and four Kingsguard sent to the Wall) or there were just three Kingsguard with Belgrave when the riverlords entered King's Landing. For what it is forth I interpret this: Quote Ser Tyland Lannister, Ser Marston Waters, and Ser Julian Wormwood had been dispatched across the narrow sea to seek after sellswords in Pentos, Tyrosh, and Myr, but none had yet returned. as Ser Julian Wormwood being a KG accompanying Ser Marston Waters and Ser Tyland Lannister to Essos. That's just an interpretation, of course, but it seems to fit. Wormwood would then have later returned to KL with Waters and would have been among the KG who died of the Winter Fever. On the other hand, it is implied that Fell and Waters are the only Greens in the KG of Aegon III with the empty spots being filled with Blacks. It is implied but not said that those empty spots were caused by Belgrave's execution and the banishment of the other three to the Wall. We don't know if there were five or four to be filled there. But the Wormwood fellow - if he was a KG - could also have died in Essos of some illness or accident or he may have decided not to return to KL.
