|Title||Lady of Duskendale|
|Book(s)||The Princess and the Queen (mentioned)|
Early in the Dance of the Dragons, Meredyth became Lady of Duskendale after Ser Criston Cole captured the town and had Lord Darklyn beheaded. Alarmed by reports that Prince Aemond Targaryen was burning the riverlands atop Vhagar, Lady Meredyth sent requests for help to Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen.
Rhaenyra fled King's Landing after the Storming of the Dragonpit and traveled toward Duskendale. Ser Harrold Darke, once the squire of Ser Steffon Darklyn, convinced Meredyth to allow the queen's party within the town walls, but only for a short time. Rhaenyra continued on to Dragonstone after leaving Duskendale.
