A Dance with Dragons

Frenya accompanies Mance Rayder along with five other spearwives to Winterfell on a mission to free "Arya Stark" (the girl is actually Jeyne Poole) who is to wed Ramsay Snow. Mance disguises himself as "Abel", a singer, and the six spearwives pretend to be his mother, wife, two daughters, and two sisters, who perform the instruments with him. Abel and the spearwives play at the wedding feast.[2] Theon Greyjoy spots Rickard Ryswell (or maybe Roger, since he tends to confuse the brothers)[3] nuzzling at the neck of one of the spearwives, whose description corresponds to Frenya, near the Burned Tower of Winterfell.[4]

After several men-at-arms and squires are found dead at Winterfell, Theon Greyjoy disbelieves the spearwives' claims of innocence.[5][1] They later enlist the help of a reluctant and fearful Theon in freeing Jeyne.[5][1] The six spearwives, disguised as maids and accompanied by Theon, walk into Jeyne's room under the pretext of bringing hot water so Jeyne can have a bath. During the rescue, Frenya wears a rope as a girdle. As they fight their way out of the castle, the spearwives are taken down one by one by the Bolton men. Frenya fights six guardsmen by the drawbridge, leaving Theon and Jeyne without a rope to escape down the outer wall.[1]

According to a letter Ramsay sends to Jon Snow on the Wall, Mance was captured and now wears the skins of the six women who accompanied him to Winterfell.[6]
