Henrietta Woodhull was a member of House Woodhull, the daughter of a landed knight from the Paps, during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.[2]

History

In 133 AC, the Maiden's Day Ball was held at the Red Keep to find a second wife and new queen for King Aegon III Targaryen. Many maidens across Westeros came to King's Landing in hopes of marrying the young king. However, the event was not a true ball, but merely a procession of maidens, each one curtsying before the king while a herald announced her name and lineage. Henrietta was the last maiden to be presented. After the appearance of Lady Daenaera Velaryon, who was evidently the king's choice, the last few maidens were brought forward hurriedly. Aegon's desire to end the parade was so palpable that Henrietta was sobbing as she curtsied.[2]
