Quotes

The Waynwoods were ever ones for ceremony.[7]

—thoughts of Catelyn Stark

The Waynwoods are very old and very proud, but not as rich as one might think, as I discovered when I began buying up their debt.[6]

The first Lady Waynwood must have been a mare, I think. How else to explain why all the Waynwood men are horse-faced?[5]

Notes

  1. According to the Alayne I sample chapter from The Winds of Winter, Roland Waynwood is the grandson of Lady Anya Waynwood and the nephew of Ser Wallace Waynwood, Anya's third son. Unless one of Anya's daughters married a Waynwood, this only leaves Anya's two oldest sons as Roland's progenitor. Since the second oldest son, Ser Donnel Waynwood, was born in either 278 or 277 AC (see Donnel Waynwood), and Roland was born in or between 274 AC and 281 AC (see Roland Waynwood), it would be impossible for Roland to have been Donnel's son, leaving only Morton.
