The Maiden's Day curse is what lords refer to when speaking of the number of calamities that befell several highborn ladies prior to the Maiden's Day Ball in 133 AC.[1]

Background

A ball was to be held for King Aegon III Targaryen, so he could choose his bride. It was no secret that the Hand of the King, Lord Unwin Peake wished for Aegon to choose his daughter Lady Myrielle Peake. A number of rumors or ill fortune befell several promising highborn ladies prior to the ball.
