―Excerpt from The Lineage and Histories of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms[src]

Axel Baratheon was a son of Orys Baratheon and Argella Durrandon.



Axel Baratheon is an early member of House Baratheon, a son of Orys Baratheon and a distant ancestor of King Robert Baratheon and his brothers, Stannis and Renly.

Axel was born in 2 AC. He married Alanna Penrose at roughly the age of 18 in 20 AC. In 44 AC at Gallowsgrey, he was killed in a duel with Steffon Trant, who had dishonored his wife.

Season 1

He has an entry in The Lineages and Histories of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms, which notes the fact that he, along with all of his ancestors and descendants were born "black of hair".[1]
