The life of Coryanne Wylde is recorded in a scandalous book, A Caution for Young Girls.[4]

Lord Jasper Wylde was the master of laws during the reign of Viserys I Targaryen and the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons, in which he supported the greens. He was executed as a traitor by Rhaenyra Targaryen when she took King's Landing in 130 AC.[5]

The Wylde arms were spotted by Ser Duncan the Tall among the gathered heraldry at the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC. Ser Willem Wylde was a member of Daeron II Targaryen's Kingsguard. He fought on behalf of Prince Aerion Targaryen during the trial of seven at Ashford.[6]

During the siege of Storm's End, Ser Gawen Wylde attempted to sneak out of the castle and surrender to the besieging army of Lord Mace Tyrell. He was captured and later died in his cell.[7]
