The Maiden's Men are a sellsword company in the Free Cities.[1] They are recorded as having an unsavory reputation.[2]

History

In 50 AC, Orryn Baratheon was exiled to the Free Cities for ten years for his involvement in his brother's plan to depose King Jaehaerys I Targaryen and replace him with one of his twin nephews, Aerea or Rhaella Targaryen. Orryn went to Tyrosh, where he signed on with the Maiden's Men but was killed soon afterwards in the Disputed Lands during a battle with the Men of Valor.[2]

After the defeat at the Battle of the Redgrass Field in the First Blackfyre Rebellion, those lords and knights who went into exile with Ser Aegor Rivers began to sign on to sellsword companies, such as the Maiden's Men. This would cause Ser Aegor to make his own company, the Golden Company[1] The Tattered Prince was once a member.
