Recent Events

A Clash of Kings

Although one of her sons, Ser Arys Oakheart, is a member of King Joffrey I Baratheon's Kingsguard in King's Landing, Lady Arwyn follows her liege lord, Mace Tyrell, in supporting King Renly Baratheon. Arwyn is present with the forces of House Oakheart in Renly's army that slowly progresses along the roseroad toward the capital, and she attends the melee at Bitterbridge.[4] After the death of Renly at Storm's End, Arwyn does not support Stannis Baratheon.[5] Instead, the Oakhearts follow the Tyrells in supporting Joffrey in the battle of the Blackwater.[6]

A Storm of Swords

The small council at King's Landing grants Lady Oakheart land as a reward for her support in the war.[7]

Quotes
