Lady Falena Stokeworth was a noblewoman of House Stokeworth during the reigns of kings Viserys I, Aegon II, Aegon III, Daeron I, Baelor I, Viserys II and Aegon IV Targaryen.[1]

Appearance and Character

In her youth, Falena Stokeworth was described as pretty and lively.[3]


Early life

Falena came to court during the early years of the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen, during which time she would sometimes play at dolls with Queen Jaehaera Targaryen. In 133 AC, during the events leading up to the Maiden's Day Ball, she took a tumble down the serpentine steps of the Red Keep and broke a leg. According to Archmaester Gyldayn, Lord Unwin Peake, the Hand of the King, may have engineered the fall to promote his own daughter as the king's second wife.[3]

Aegon the Unworthy

In 149 AC, Falena became the first mistress of Prince Aegon Targaryen, making him "a man" when the prince was fourteen. When a knight of the Kingsguard found them abed together in 151 AC, Aegon's father, Prince Viserys Targaryen, wed Falena to the master-at-arms at the Red Keep, Ser Lucas Lothston, and persuaded King Aegon III Targaryen to name Lucas as the Lord of Harrenhal in order to remove Falena from court. However, over the next two years, Aegon paid frequent visits to Harrenhal.[1]

Falena returned to court at King's Landing when King Aegon IV Targaryen named her husband as his Hand of the King. Falena brought her daughter, Lady Jeyne Lothston, with her. Jeyne became Aegon's eighth mistress, and it was rumored that Falena and her daughter Jeyne shared King Aegon IV's bed together.[1]
