The Archon's daughter was the daughter of the Archon of Tyrosh during the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[2] She was the wife of Ser Orryn Baratheon.[3] Her given name is unknown.

Appearance and Character

The Archon's daughter was comely and buxom. She dyed her hair blue-green and wore it in tresses. The woman was witty and liked to flirt.[2]

History

The maiden came to King's Landing with her father, the Archon of Tyrosh, in 49 AC to assist in the Golden Wedding. After the wedding, Lord Rogar Baratheon unsuccessfully proposed to the other members of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen's small council that she wed the young king in order to forge an alliance with Tyrosh and extend the power of the Iron Throne to Essos.[2]

In 50 AC, King Jaehaerys sentenced Ser Orryn Baratheon to a ten-year exile for attempting to kidnap Princess Rhaella Targaryen. Orryn entered the service of the Archon in Tyrosh, and the following year he married the Archon's daughter. She soon gave birth to a girl, although some doubted that Orryn was the father.[3]
