Allegiance Gaemon Palehair
Died In 130 AC or 131 AC[1], at King's Landing
Book(s) The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)

Essie was a whore in the House of Kisses and the mother of Gaemon Palehair. During the Moon of the Three Kings, Essie declared Gaemon was a bastard of King Aegon II Targaryen.[1]


Essie claimed her four-year old son, Gaemon, was a son of King Aegon II Targaryen, which led to the boy being installed as a King in the House of Kisses after the flight of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen. From there, the boy issued a series of edicts. When King's Landing was taken back in the name of King Aegon II, Essie was arrested and hanged, after having confessed that Gaemon was actually the son of a silver-haired oarsman from Lys.[1]

According to Mushroom, Essie had a paramour, Sylvenna Sand, who was also a whore at the House of Kisses.[2]
