"Ser Preston will be stationed here beside the... primary entertainment."
―Ser Jaime Lannister[src]

Ser Preston Greenfield was a knight and a member of the Queensguard, defending Queen Cersei Lannister as he defended King Robert Baratheon, King Joffrey Baratheon and King Tommen Baratheon before her.


Season 1

Ser Preston was among the guards that attacked Eddard Stark when the Hand of the King attempts to arrest Cersei Lannister, and take her children into his custody.[1]

Season 4

After Jaime Lannister returns to King's Landing, he goes over with Ser Meryn Trant the placement of the Kingsguard members in defensive positions during Joffrey's wedding, assigning Ser Preston a place close to the wedding feast "primary entertainment".[2]

Season 5

Five members of the Kingsguard escort King Tommen Baratheon to the steps before the Great Sept of Baelor so the king can meet with the High Sparrow. Members of the Faith Militant block them.[3]

Season 8

Ser Preston is presumably killed by Sandor Clegane or crushed by debris while protecting Queen Cersei during the Battle of King's Landing, along with the other Kingsguard.[4]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Greenfield is a member of Robert Baratheon's Kingsguard. He is noted as the shortest member of the Kingsguard. He accompanied Robert on his boar hunting trip where he was mortally wounded. He pledges allegiance to Joffrey following Robert's death.

Similarly to at least three other members of the Kingsguard (Jaime, Boros Blount and Arys Oakheart), Ser Preston used to violate his vow of celibacy at a certain draper's house whenever the draper was away.

Ser Preston is killed in the Riot of King's Landing; he has been stabbed and hacked so cruelly that he was red-brown from head to heel.

Ser Preston is replaced by Ser Balon Swann, who has been mentioned in the series but not as part of the Kingsguard. In the series, no Kingsguard is shown to be killed by the rioters. Ser Preston is later mentioned as being alive at the time of Joffrey's wedding, meaning he survived the riots in TV continuity.
