Lady Minisa Tully[3] was a member of House Whent who became the wife of Hoster Tully, Lord of Riverrun, and the mother of Catelyn, Lysa, and Edmure.[4]

Appearance and Character

The always calm Minisa had soft hands and a warm smile.[3] Brynden Tully states that his niece Catelyn, believed by many to be pretty,[5][6][7] resembles Minisa in her cheekbones and jaw.[8] Catelyn's elder daughter, Sansa, has high cheekbones as well.[9]

History

Minisa was born into House Whent, the Lords of Harrenhal, and she wed their liege, Hoster Tully, the Lord of Riverrun and Lord Paramount of the Trident. Minisa's first two children were sons who died in infancy,[10] but her later children Catelyn, Lysa, and Edmure grew to adulthood. Minisa died in childbirth with her fourth son, who also died shortly after.[3]

The sept of Riverrun is located in Minisa's gardens.[10]

Quotes

Brynden: He misses her still. You have her face. I can see it in your cheekbones, and your jaw ...

Catelyn: You remember more of her than I do. It has been a long time.[8]

- Brynden Tully and Catelyn Stark


Lady Minisa Tully had died in childbed, trying to give Lord Hoster a second son. The baby had perished with her, and afterward some of the life had gone out of Father. She was always so calm, Catelyn thought, remembering her mother's soft hands, her warm smile. If she had lived, how different our lives might have been.[3]
