It has been noted by fans that the descriptions of Jeyne as given by [[Jaime Lannister]] and [[Catelyn Tully]] do not match. In ''[[A Storm of Swords]]'' Catelyn describes her as an undeniable pretty young woman, slender but with good hips, a factor which may suggest a fertile woman.{{Ref|aSoS|14}} However, in ''[[A Feast For Crows]]'' Jaime describes her as a pretty girl, but not a girl to lose a kingdom for.

History

House Westerling is an old house that descends from the First Men.[3] Although noble and old the family is not rich, their gold mines having failed. Presumably to better his finances Lord Gawen Westerling wed Sybell Spicer, the daughter of an ennobled family that descended from merchants. Because of the low standing of Jeyne's mother, she was rejected as a match for one of Ser Kevan Lannister's sons.[5]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

Robb Stark, the Young Wolf, agrees to marry a daughter of Lord Walder Frey as part of the alliance between Houses Stark and Frey.[6] Jeyne's father, Lord Gawen Westerling, is captured by Robb's army captures during the battle in the Whispering Wood and held at Seagard.[3]

A Clash of Kings

While at Harrenhal, Robb's incognito sister, Arya, learns from Elmar Frey that his House has been dishonored.[7]

A Storm of Swords

Jeyne nursing Robb Stark - by Lauren Cannon ©

During the westerlands expedition of Robb, now the King in the North, his army storms the Crag, the ancestral keep of House Westerling. Since Robb is wounded by an arrow, Jeyne's mother, Sybell, and uncle, Ser Rolph Spicer, encourage the girl to nurse the Young Wolf.[8]

While recuperating at the Crag, Robb receives a message that his younger brothers, Bran and Rickon, have been killed by his former friend, Theon Greyjoy, who captured Winterfell. Jeyne comforts Robb in his grief and they sleep together. To protect her honor he marries her the next day,[3] but the marriage leads directly to the break-up of Robb's alliance with Lord Walder. The outraged Freys take their forces at the Crag[3] and Riverrun[9] back to the Twins, although a part of their strength remains with Lord Roose Bolton at Harrenhal.[7] Black Walder Frey threatens to kill Jeyne so that a widower Robb could then marry a Frey, but Jeyne begs her husband to be merciful and Black Walder is spared.[3]

The couple are devoted to each other and try to conceive, with Sybell giving her daughter morning possets to help with fertility.[10] Jeyne tries hard to be a good wife for Robb, although she is worried about the pressure he is under as king. On the advice of Robb's mother, Catelyn Stark, Jeyne tries to be patient and understanding.[10] Robb for his part is able to smile and be temporarily without worries when he is in her company.[11] Jeyne is anxious around Grey Wind, since Robb's direwolf killed a knight at the Crag whom Jeyne had known for years.[3]

After negotiations, Walder Frey agrees to ally again with the Starks in return for the marriage of Robb's uncle, Lord Edmure Tully, to Roslin Frey and a personal apology from Robb.[11] Jeyne and most of her family remain at Riverrun under the protection of Ser Brynden Tully to avoid extra tension between Lord Frey and her husband.[12] Jeyne rides an hour north of the Tumblestone in an attempt to accompany Robb, but he sends her back to Riverrun.[12]

Outside of the wedding of Edmure and Roslin at the Twins, Arya is puzzled when she hears a feasting northman cheer the Young Wolf and Queen Jeyne.[13] Within the Twins, Houses Frey and Bolton betray and kill Robb, beginning the Red Wedding.[14] Ser Kevan Lannister later instructs King Tommen I Baratheon to pardon the Westerlings and grant the title of Lord of Castamere to Rolph.[15]

A Feast for Crows

Jeyne goes into mourning, to the chagrin of Sybell, who had been in secret negotiations with Lord Tywin Lannister. Unbeknownst to Jeyne, the daily potions given to her by her mother prevented pregnancy.[4] Although most of the river lords submit to the Iron Throne, Riverrun remains under the control of Brynden the Blackfish.[16]

The siege of Riverrun is settled peacefully by Ser Jaime Lannister, who tasks Ser Forley Prester with returning Jeyne to her father back at the Crag.[4] To avoid tales that her dead husband Robb had given her a child and thus an heir to the north, Jeyne is to remain unmarried for two years and is given a strong escort of soldiers with secret instructions to kill her if there would be any attempt at escape during the travel from Riverrun to the Crag. Before she leaves, Jaime notices that Jeyne has ripped her finely-made clothes in an act of mourning for Robb and rebellion at her mother, who took away the crown Robb gave to Jeyne.[4]

Family

Jeyne has two brothers, Raynald and Rollam, and a younger sister, Eleyna. Her elder brother Raynald was present at the Red Wedding, at which he freed Grey Wind and tried to escape the Freys by jumping in the Green Fork. However, he is presumed dead.[17] Her younger brother Rollam served as Robb's squire.[3] Jeyne and Eleyna are to marry lords or heirs, as negotiated between their mother and Tywin Lannister.[4]
