Jonquil is a character of the tale where she falls in love with her knight-fool, Florian.


According to legend, Florian first spied Jonquil bathing with her sisters in a pool in what is now Maidenpool.[1]

There is an as yet untitled famous song about Florian and Jonquil. Sansa Stark knows it. She offers to sing the song to Sandor Clegane but he declines it at first.[2] During the Battle of the Blackwater he comes for the song but Sansa sings him the Mother’s instead.


Jonquil: You are no knight, I know you. You are Florian the Fool.

Florian: I am, my lady, As great a fool as ever lived, and as great a knight as well.

Jonquil: A fool and a knight? I have never heard of such a thing.

Florian: Sweet lady, all men are fools, and all men are knights, where women are concerned.[3]
