Jeyne Arryn, also called the Maiden of the Vale, was a member of House Arryn and a Lady of the Eyrie. She ruled the Vale of Arryn during the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.[1]


At the start of the civil war, Prince Jacaerys Velaryon flew north on his dragon to foster allies for the cause of his mother, Rhaenyra Targaryen (herself the daughter of an Arryn). One of the places he went to was the Eyrie. There, he treated with Lady Jeyne and made a promise to her. Jeyne brought the Eyrie to the side of the blacks during the civil war.

Though snows closed the passes through the Mountains of the Moon the Maiden of the Vale proved true to her word and sent men by sea by way of Gulltown to join the queen's hosts.

When Rhaenyra fled King's Landing, Ser Harrold Darke urged her to seek refuge with Lady Arryn in the Vale, but Her Grace refused his council.
