Biography

Background

Argella Baratheon was the wife of Orys Baratheon, the first Lord Paramount of the Stormlands and is the distant ancestor of King Robert Baratheon and his brothers Stannis and Renly.

Orys, a commander in the army of Aegon the Conqueror and his bastard half-brother, had been sent by Aegon to seize Storm's End, the ancestral seat of the Storm Kings and capital of the Stormlands. Orys defeated King Argilac the Arrogant and took not only Storm's End but also his sigil - the black stag and his words, "Ours is the Fury" - as well as Argella, to cement his rule over the Stormlands. He became the first Lord Paramount of the Stormlands.[2]

Season 1

She is mentioned in Orys Baratheon's entry in The Lineages and Histories of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms.[3]

Name

House Baratheon lineage

The lineage of Orys Baratheon, mentioning Argella (misspelled as "Argalia")

When her name first appeared in the lineages book in Season 1, it was spelled as "Argalia" - the name of Argilac Durrandon's daughter who married Orys Baratheon hadn't been publicly revealed at the time - but later, in the 2014 sourcebook The World of Ice and Fire, the officially spelling was given as "Argella" Durrandon.

The "Argella" spelling was finally confirmed as official in the TV continuity as well, when the Season 7 Histories & Lore set prominently listed it the on-screen credits.
