Lady Coryanne Wylde was a member of House Wylde during the early reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[1]

History

Coryanne Wylde was the daughter of Lord Morgan Wylde of the Rain House. At a young age, she was deflowered by a "surly lad" from the stables. A Caution for Young Girls describes him as a handsome boy her own age; the account of the maester of the Rain House paints him as a pox-scarred varlet of thirty, distinguished by a "male member as stout as a stallion's." He was gelded shortly after, and Coryanne was confined to her chambers, where in 48 AC, she gave birth to a bastard son, sent off to be fostered by a castle steward at Storm's End. Few beyond the walls of the Rain House knew of her shame.[1]

In 50 AC, when the Hand of the King, Lord Rogar Baratheon, and Queen Regent Alyssa Velaryon attempted to undo the secret marriage of King Jaehaerys I and his sister-wife Queen Alysanne, which remained unconsummated. Lady Alyssa planned on sending women to Dragonstone as a household for Alysanne, but in truth the ladies' mission was to try and persuade Alysanne to annul the marriage. A Caution for Young Girls states that Lord Rogar or his brother, Ser Borys, placed Lady Coryanne among these ladies, but with the instruction to bed the king, thus angering Alysanne into undoing the marriage. If this was the case, the attempt failed.[1]

Later in 50 AC, Coryanne eloped with the married Ser Howard Bullock, the younger son of the commander of Dragonstone's garrison. A fishing boat carried them to Driftmark, where they took ship to Pentos, and then to the Disputed Lands, where Ser Howard joined the Free Company. He died in Myr in 53 AC from a fall from his horse.[1]

Around 90 AC, the first copy of A Caution for Young Girls appeared in Westeros. It was allegedly written by Lady Coryanne. It details a life of "sin, suffering, and slavery", according to Archmaester Gyldayn, in which she has many erotic adventures in Essos before becoming a septa in Oldtown.[1]
