|Spouse||King Maegor I Targaryen|
|Book(s)||The World of Ice and Fire (mentioned)|
Lady Ceryse Hightower was a member of House Hightower and was the daughter of Lord Martyn Hightower of Oldtown during the reign of Aenys I Targaryen. She was the niece of the High Septon at the time. She eventually married Maegor the Cruel, becoming his first (of many) wives.
Ceryse's uncle, the High Septon, became livid when Visenya Targaryen suggested that her son Maegor wed Rhaena Targaryen. To please the Faith of the Seven, King Aenys I Targaryen refused the betrothal and instead wed Maegor to Lady Ceryse in 25 AC. Their marriage failed to produce any children and Maegor eventually took further brides (though all of them likewise did not produce him an heir).
