Behind the scenes

Victarion appears in the first season House Greyjoy family tree issued by HBO.[1] He was not included when the Greyjoy family tree was reissued for the second season.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Victarion is Lord Captain of the Iron Fleet, his flagship is Iron Victory. He is a capable commander and a fierce warrior in battle, but has a calm demeanor outside of it, thinking of enemies with great respect. He is a religious man and wears full plate armor while sailing because he has no fear of drowning.

Victarion has been married three times, none of which produced any children. His first wife died giving birth to stillborn daughter. His second wife died by a pox.

Victarion despises his brother Euron, due to the latter raping and impregnating his third wife. Victarion beat her to death in order to cleanse himself of the taint of dishonor, and only the taboo against kinslaying kept him from killing Euron too. He has not married since, nor has he forgiven his brother.
