The She-Wolves of Winterfell is the working title given to the as-yet unpublished fourth Tales of Dunk and Egg novella,[1][2] once intended to be published in an anthology named Dangerous Women[3] but now postponed.[4][2] George R.R. Martin says he will not know more about when the story can be completed until he has finished The Winds of Winter.[2]

Plot

The novella is set in Winterfell. It will feature Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg, who will meet the "She-Wolves": a group of formidable Stark wives, widows, mothers and grandmothers.[2] Four may be widows of previous Lords of Winterfell, and one the current Lady Stark whose husband Beron Stark is dying from a wound taken while fighting Ironborn.[5] There may be a House Stark succession crisis, a struggle for power among the ladies on behalf of their children.[5]

The She-Wolves

The identity of the five "She-Wolves" has not been revealed yet. However, with the Stark lineage in The World of Ice and Fire their names can be deduced:

Moreover, four Stark women—Arsa, Serena, and her daughters Arrana and Aregelle—might be engaged to various degrees into the power struggle following Beron's injury even though they did not marry a Lord of Winterfell.
