Jenny of Oldstones was the wife of Duncan Targaryen, the Prince of Dragonflies.[1] There are many songs written about her, including Jenny's song, which the Ghost of High Heart always wants to hear. She wove flowers in her hair.

She claimed descent from the long-vanished kings of the First Men.[2]


Prince Duncan Targaryen loved Jenny so much he married her against his father's wishes, breaking his betrothal to the daughter of Lord Lyonel Baratheon. King Aegon tried to have the marriage undone, but Duncan refused to give her up, ultimately giving up his rights to the throne for her.[2] She was friends with a woods witch, whom Jenny brought to court with her, and who prophesied that the prince that was promised would be born from the line of Prince Aerys and Princess Rhaella. When King Jaehaerys II heard the prophecy he arranged the marriage between his two children.[3]
