Lady Forlorn

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search

Lady Forlorn is the ancestral longsword[1] of House Corbray.[2] It has a heart-shaped ruby in its pommel.[1] According to semi-canon sources Lady Forlorn is Valyrian steel.[3][4] Its dark, smoke-grey steel is reminiscent of Ice, the Valyrian greatsword of House Stark.[1]

History

First Men King Robar II Royce claimed Lady Forlorn after slaying Qyle Corbray, the Andal King of the Fingers. Robar wielded this Lady Forlorn during the Battle of the Seven Stars, using it to kill Torgold Tollett and a decoy dressed as Ser Artys Arryn. The Corbrays claim that Ser Jaime Corbray slew Robar in the battle, allowing them to reclaim the original Lady Forlorn.[5]

At the time of the First Blackfyre Rebellion, Lady Forlorn was wielded by Ser Gwayne Corbray of the Kingsguard. During the Battle of the Redgrass Field Gwayne fought Daemon Blackfyre, who wielded the Valyrian sword Blackfyre. Eventually Daemon defeated his enemy.[2]

An unnamed Lord Corbray wielded Lady Forlorn during the Battle of the Trident in 283 AC. When Lord Corbray was wounded, his younger son, Lyn, took up the sword and killed the man who had wounded his father. Lyn then led the charge against the Dornishmen and killed Prince Lewyn Martell of the Kingsguard. Because of this feat the sword was left to Lyn instead of the elder Lyonel Corbray when their lord father died.[1]
