Falena Stokeworth was a lady of House Stokeworth during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.[2]

History

Lady Falena came to court as a child, and was a companion of Queen Jaehaera in the regency of the boy king Aegon III Targaryen. In 133 AC, she was one of the many maidens harmed or scandalized leading up to the ball known as the Maiden's Day Cattle Show when she took a tumble down the serpentine steps of the Red Keep and broke a leg. Lord Unwin Peake, the Hand of the King, may have engineered the fall to promote his own daughter as the king's second wife.[3]

Later, Falena became the first mistress of Prince Aegon. She "made him a man" in 149 AC when he was fourteen, she being ten years his elder. When a knight of the Kingsguard found them abed together in 151 AC, his father, Prince Viserys, wed Falena to the master-at-arms at the Red Keep, Ser Lucas Lothston, and persuaded Aegon III Targaryen to name Lucas Lord of Harrenhal in order to remove Falena from court. However, over the next two years, Aegon paid frequent visits to Harrenhal.[2]

Falena returned to court at King's Landing when King Aegon IV named her husband his Hand, bringing her daughter Lady Jeyne Lothston with her. It was rumored the king enjoyed both mother and daughter together in the same bed.[2]
