Lady Bethany Bolton,[3] née Ryswell, was the elder[2] daughter of Lord Rodrik of House Ryswell and, as the second wife of Lord Roose Bolton, the Lady of the Dreadfort.

History

According to Roose, Bethany never made a sound in bed.[2] Bethany had one son with Roose, Domeric.[1] During his youth Domeric served as a page at Barrowton with Bethany's sister, Lady Barbrey Dustin. Reek, a servant at the Dreadfort, was once caught stealing perfume from Bethany's bedchamber in order to his mask his unpleasant scent; the following year Reek was caught drinking the perfume.[2]

Bethany died of a fever.[3] Domeric died in 297 AC,[N 1] allegedly poisoned by her husband's bastard, Ramsay Snow.[2]
