Melessa Florent is a member of House Florent, the eldest daughter of Lord Alester Florent. She is married to Lord Randyll Tarly and mother of Samwell, Talla and Dickon Tarly, as well as two other unnamed daughters. In the television adaptation Game of Thrones she is portrayed by Samantha Spiro.
A Storm of Swords
When Samwell Tarly discusses his plan with Jon Snow to send Gilly and her babe to Horn Hill - in the guise of the babe being Sam's bastard offspring - he tells Jon that he knows that his mother would want him. Sam is confident that she will find some place for Gilly and it would not be as hard as serving Craster.
A Feast for Crows
While on the Blackbird, Sam thinks of his mother as his clings to the railing and watches waves breaking on a stony shore:
|“||If she saw me in my blacks, it might even make her proud. "I am a man now, Mother,” I could tell her, "a steward and a man of the Night's Watch. My brothers call me Sam the Slayer sometimes."||”|
