"No. Not here. Not in my hearing. You will not name him brother, this son of the man who put your true brothers to the sword."
Balon to Theon Greyjoy[src]

Maron Greyjoy was the son of Balon Greyjoy, the Lord Reaper of Pyke. He was killed fighting for his father in the Greyjoy Rebellion.



Maron was the second son of Balon Greyjoy and Alannys Harlaw. Balon is the head of House Greyjoy and the Lord Reaper of Pyke. Maron has two brothers, Rodrik and Theon who are respectively the oldest and the youngest, and a sister, Yara, who was born after Maron but before Theon. Maron became his father's heir after Rodrik died in battle but he too was later killed by a collapsing tower during the Siege of Pyke.[1]

Season 1

Tyrion mentions the deaths of Theon's brothers during the rebellion. He wonders what Balon would make of Theon's loyalty to House Stark given that he is Balon's only surviving son.[2]

Season 2

Balon reminds Theon the death of his brothers, bitterly demanding to know whether he has forgotten his own blood. Theon answers that he remembers his brothers.[3]

Theon tries to dissuade his father from his plan of invasion, claiming that Robb won't give up the North so easily. Balon tells him harshly that his brothers were killed at the hands of those he seems so eager to protect.[4]

Theon reminds Ser Rodrik Cassel that his brothers were killed fighting Stark men, men like him; Ser Rodrik answers that they died fighting a war Theon's father started.[5]

Season 6

Yara reminds her father that the last time they provoked the Mainlanders too far, they were crushed and her two oldest brothers were killed. Balon retorts that he lost three sons.[6]

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Maron was killed defending the South tower on Pyke during the Greyjoy Rebellion. He was crushed to death when the tower collapsed.

In "A Clash of Kings" and "A Dance with Dragons" it is revealed that Maron and Rodrik used to bully Theon. Even after so many years, Theon still remembers the beating and cruel japes he suffered from them.
