- Not to be confused with Jeyne Westerling, the wife of Robb Stark.
Tall and willowy, Lady Jeyne was a renowned beauty.
In 47 AC, Jeyne was being courted by the son of the Lord of Casterly Rock when King Maegor I Targaryen sent for her to be wed to him along with Lady Elinor Costayne and Princess Rhaena Targaryen in a single ceremony. The three became known as the "Black Brides", as they were widows. In 47 AC, she was with child, but three moons before the child was due her labor began, and from her womb came a stillborn monster. She did not survive the child for long.
A Storm of Swords
King Robb Stark refers to Jeyne Westerling to defend his wife and Jeyne's namesake, Jeyne Westerling, when his mother Catelyn Stark discusses with him how his marriage to Jeyne has slighted the honor of House Frey, as Robb had been sworn to wed a daughter of Lord Walder Frey.
