A Clash of Kings
As a vassal of Dragonstone, Lord Ardrian supports Stannis Baratheon when he lays claim to the Iron Throne, but without real enthusiasm. He is present when the red priestess of R'hllor, Melisandre, burns the sept at Dragonstone. He is captured at the Battle of the Blackwater and bends the knee to King Joffrey I Baratheon.
A Storm of Swords
Ardrian stays in King's Landing in fear of reprisals from Stannis. He is present at the wedding of King Joffrey I to Lady Margaery Tyrell, and later testifies against Tyrion Lannister at his trial for regicide.
