Female wards

We shouldn't exclude noble daughters I think. A daughter of a Lord could be sent to another Lord as a ward to prepare a marriage alliance, as a way that the two who shall marry get the chance to know each other better. And regardless of that, a ward is sometimes some kind of a good treated hostage, to secure the alliance of a bannerman. It's not unusual in this way to take the first son and the first daughter as wards because firstborns are always the most valuable children! --Exodianecross (talk) 18:33, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
