A ruling lady is the head of her house and lady in her own right, not as the wife of her lord husband. Per custom, inheritance passes to the eldest daughter if she has no brothers or her brothers are dead, or in Dorne, to the eldest child regardless of sex. In some instances, a lord's widow may become a ruling lady in her own right if inheritance is uncertain.
