Elinor Tyrell is a member of a junior branch of House Tyrell, and a lady-in-waiting of Lady Margaery Tyrell.[2]

Appearance and Character

Elinor is willowy and witty. She is a maiden flowered, and rules Margaery's younger cousins by right of womanhood. Elinor is betrothed to Alyn Ambrose, who wore her favor during the Battle of the Blackwater,[2] but loves to flirt.[3]

Recent Events

A Storm of Swords

Elinor is one of the ladies attending Lady Margaery Tyrell in King's Landing.[4] She is a bedmaid, friend, and confidante of Margaery. She becomes one of Sansa Stark's friends when Margaery brings her into their company.[2]

At the wedding feast for Sansa and Tyrion Lannister, though the Tyrells attend, Elinor acts like she does not know Sansa. Elinor dances with her betrothed, Alyn Ambrose.[5]

At the wedding of Margaery and King Joffrey Baratheon, Sansa compliments Elinor on her gown.[6]

A Feast for Crows

Elinor attends the wedding of Margaery Tyrell and King Tommen Baratheon, where she dances with Tommen and shares a cup of wine with Aurane Waters.[7] She continues as Margaery's companion, taking her messages, reading with her, and accompaning her on many horse rides.[7][8][3]

Due to Cersei's plotting,[9] Elinor is arrested by the Faith of the Seven for trumped up crimes, along with Megga Tyrell and Queen Margaery Tyrell, and held captive in the Great Sept of Baelor. When examined by a septa, Elinor's maidenhead is found to be broken.[10]

A Dance with Dragons

Almost all of the men named as Margaery's lovers have denied the accusation or recanted, so she and her cousins, including Elinor, are handed over by the High Septon to the custody of Lord Randyll Tarly. Tarly swears a holy oath to return them for their trial.[11]
