Black Aly Blackwood, by Rae Lavergne©
|Alias||Black Aly Blackwood|
|Title||Lady of Winterfell|
|Spouse||Lord Cregan Stark|
|Book(s)||The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)|
During the Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, the Blackwoods sided with the blacks, the faction loyal to Rhaenyra Targaryen. Alysanne commanded archers of the riverlands during the battle of the Kingsroad. After Lord Benjicot Blackwood broke the flank of Lord Borros Baratheon's royalist greens, Alysanne's archers slew the royalist knights. The Lads then advanced on King's Landing.
During the Hour of the Wolf, Lord Cregan Stark of Winterfell briefly served as Hand of the King to the newly crowned boy king Aegon III Targaryen and dispensed justice after the murder of King Aegon II Targaryen. Alysanne agreed to marry Cregan in exchange for allowing Aegon III's pardon of Lord Corlys Velaryon to stand.

- Earlier prints of The World of Ice & Fire state that Alysanne is the sister of Lord Benjicot Blackwood (The World of Ice & Fire, The Stormlands: House Baratheon). However, Elio García has confirmed that the statement is in error (A Forum of Ice and Fire: Looking in the MUSH for some World Book content (November 11, 2014)), stating "Aly is Ben's aunt, BTW. Sister is an error in the book, we'll get it corrected.". This error has been subsequently fixed in later editions (Reddit, (Spoilers Main) An Errata of Ice and Fire: list of fixed/confirmed/probable errors (November 8, 2017)).
