Betha Blackwood was a member of House Blackwood who became queen consort to King Aegon V Targaryen. Betha was known as Black Betha because of her dark eyes and hair. She was a spirited woman also considered stubborn or willful. While Betha and Aegon had married for love, Betha assisted in arranging politically advantageous betrothals for their children. The youths resisted Betha’s and Aegon’s plans, however, and the children instead married for love as their parents had done.
“So it’s true. The bastards took your sword hand.” “I have a new one, made of gold. There’s much to be said for being one-handed. I drink less wine for fear of spilling and am seldom inclined to scratch my arse at court”
Mad King was obsessed with it. He loved to watch people burn, the way
their skin blackened and blistered and melted off their bones. He
burned lords he didn’t like. He burned Hands who disobeyed him. He
burned anyone who was against him. Before long, half the country was
against him. Aerys saw traitors everywhere. So he had his pyromancer
place caches of wildfire all over the city. Beneath the Sept of
Baelor and the slums of Flea Bottom. Under houses, stables, taverns.
Even beneath the Red Keep itself. Finally, the day of reckoning came.
Robert Baratheon marched on the capital after his victory at the
Trident. But my father arrived first with the whole Lannister army at
his back, promising to defend the city against the rebels. I knew my
father better than that. He’s never been one to pick the losing side.
I told the Mad King as much. I urged him to surrender peacefully. But
the king didn’t listen to me. He didn’t listen to Varys who tried to
warn him. But he did listen to Grand Maester Pycelle, that grey,
sunken cunt. “You can trust the Lannisters,” he said. “The
Lannisters have always been true friends of the crown.”
Rohanne Webber was married at ten years old to her father’s squire. He was slain during the Battle of the Redgrass Field in 196 AC, fighting for House Targaryen. Addam also died during the battle, fighting for House Blackfyre, causing Rohanne to develop a grudge against his father. Rohanne’s second husband was old, and died of a chill. Her third husband, Ser Simon Staunton, choked to death on a chicken bone. Her last husband, Ser Rolland Uffering died of the Great Spring Sickness. Before his death, Lord Wyman Webber attempted to marry her to Ser Lucas Longinch, but she refused him. Rohanne later married Lord Gerold Lannister and had four sons with him, twins Tywald and Tion, Tytos, and Jason Lannister. She was the grandmother of Tywin, Kevan, Gerion, Tygett and Genna Lannister. Lady Rohanne disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 230 AC.
