Sharis Footly was the Lady of Tumbleton by her marriage to Lord Footly during the Dance of the Dragons,[1] and regent of Tumbleton during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.[2]

Appearance and Character

She was beautiful[1] and bold.[3]

History

Bold Jon Roxton became enamored of Lady Sharis after the First Battle of Tumbleton, and claimed her as a "prize of war." When her lord husband protested, Ser Jon cut him nigh in two with Orphan-Maker. Sharis wept as he tore her gown.[1]

Six months after the Second Battle of Tumbleton, Lady Sharis gave birth to a lusty dark-haired boy who she proclaimed to be her late lord husband's trueborn heir, though it was far more likely that he had been sired by Ser Jon Roxton. She ruled in his name as regent and became famous for her efforts to restore the shattered town. She pulled down the burned shells of shops and houses, rebuilt the town walls, buried the dead, planted wheat and barley and turnips in the fields where the camps had been, and had the heads of the dragons Seasmoke and Vermithor cleaned and displayed in the town square, where travelers paid a penny to look at them, and a star to touch them.

After the death of Queen Jaehaera Targaryen in 133 AC, Lady Sharis made so bold as to nominate herself as the second wife of King Aegon III Targaryen.[3]
