Danelle Lothston, known as Mad Danelle, was Lady of Harrenhal and head of House Lothston.

Appearance and Character

Danelle had long red hair and wore tight-fitting black armor.[1] A story told to misbehaving children said that on moonless nights bats would fly from Harrenhal and take the bad children back to Mad Danelle.[2]


When Lord Brynden Rivers, the Hand of the King to Aerys I Targaryen, marched on Whitewalls to quash the Second Blackfyre Rebellion, Lady Danelle was among the river lords who come in support, marching in great strength.[1]

Lady Danelle turned to the black arts during the reign of Maekar I Targaryen, causing chaos and the downfall of the Lothston line.[3]
