Meredyth.jpg

Meredyth Tyrell is the daughter of Baelor Tyrell and widow of Robert Manderly. She currently serves as one of Queen Danae Targaryen's longest-serving handmaiden.

History

Meredyth was sent to Horn Hill at the age of eleven. There under her aunt, the competent and capable Lady Leonette of loyal House Tarly, she learned the ways if being a highborn lady. She was lonely at first, being away from her beloved Highgarden and her family, but Lord Baelor had too many children to keep locked away in his castle when they could be strengthening alliances with his vassals. He thought to one day marry her to the future Lord Tarly.

Meredyth thrived at Horn Hill. The holdfast had no lord for over half a decade, and so the Lady Tarly ran the affairs of the castle and taught Meredyth more than she ever would have learned at the Reach's capital. 

Maude was the oldest daughter and the most beautiful, and Mellara was the youngest and known for poking her nose into places it didn't belong. Meredyth was the middle child, and the awkward position suited her awkward personality. Where Maude was beautiful, Meredyth was decidedly plain. Maude had long legs; Meredyth had a long nose. Maude was lithe; Meredyth was gangly. Maude smiled and giggled at the men in court; Meredyth stood sullen and silent. Her brown hair was duller than her sister’s, and her golden eyes didn’t hold quite the same sparkle.

Any plans for a marriage between Lord Bonifer Tarly and Meredyth Tyrell were laid to waste when war broke out. Being at Horn Hill kept Meredyth safe from harm, but when the battles ended and the dust settled, it was back to Highgarden she found herself being shipped, to marry Lord Robert Manderly at the age of seventeen in order to secure his claim to the castle he stole from her father.
