"My grandfather raised himself to the status of hedge knight and even managed to acquire a bit of land and a keep on the smallest of the Fingers, though I do believe he often missed sleeping under his titular hedges."
Petyr Baelish[src]

Baelish is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is deceased when the events of the series begin. He is not expected to appear in the series. He is the grandfather of major character Petyr Baelish.


He was a poor wandering hedge knight, who eventually was rewarded for his services with a small portion of land and a keep - a tiny, hardscrabble holding in the smallest peninsula of the Fingers.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, he took the head of the Titan of Braavos as his sigil when he was knighted. His arms were a grey stone head with fiery eyes on a light green field.
