|Died||In 130 AC, Bitterbridge|
During the fall of King's Landing, Lord Larys Strong, the master of whisperers, smuggled King Aegon II, Princess Jaehaera, and Prince Maelor Targaryen to safety through a secret passage known only to Larys within Maegor's Holdfast. The party was accompanied by Rickard and Ser Willis Fell of the Kingsguard. Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen offered rewards for information about the vanished "false knights", and King Aegon's rival also sent knights inquisitor in search of Ser Willis and Rickard.
Rickard was commanded to see Prince Maelor safely to Oldtown. At Bitterbridge, however, Rickard was brought down by a mob, and Maelor was torn apart as smallfolk sought to claim him as their own prize.
