Lady Buckler was the Lady of Bronzegate and the head of House Buckler during the regency of King Aegon III Targaryen.[1] Her given name is unknown.


In 133 AC, the Maiden's Day Ball was held at the Red Keep to find a second wife and new queen for King Aegon III Targaryen. Lady Buckler came to King's Landing with her two daughters, hoping that one of the two maidens would be chosen as Aegon III's new queen. However, the three ladies did not reach the capital, as they drowned when the boat that was carrying them across the Blackwater Rush foundered and sank.[1]

Some considered their deaths to be part of the "Maiden's Day curse". It is possible that this accident was orchestrated by Lord Unwin Peake, the Hand of the King, who wished to promote his own daughter as Aegon III's second queen.[1]
