Lady Maege Mormont is the head of House Mormont and ruler of Bear Island. She inherited her title from her nephew, Ser Jorah Mormont, after he fled into exile. She is the sister of the Night's Watch Lord Commander Jeor Mormont.

Character and Appearance

She is a stout grey haired woman and a fierce warrior. She dresses in mail[2] and her favoured weapon is a spiked mace. She is dedicated to the old gods, and loyal to House Stark and according to her brother, she is stubborn, short-tempered and willful.[3]


Maege inherited the title of head of House Mormont and ruler of Bear Island after her brother's only heir, Jorah Mormont, fled to the Free Cities to escape justice for selling criminals into slavery to pay for his debts. She worked hard to regain the family's noble name and to help the estate recover from the state of near-poverty Jorah left behind.[4]

Maege had five daughters: her eldest and heir, Dacey, Alysane, Lyra, Jorelle, Lyanna. She had no sons.
