A Feast for Crows
Lady Taena Merryweather reports to Queen Cersei Lannister the rumor of Megga Tyrell, Queen Margaery's cousin and lady-in-waiting, marrying Lady Bulwer's brother.
This character is only mentioned in passing once in the series, it is unclear who he really is. Several possibilities have been brought up:
- Lady Alysanne Bulwer's brother:
Alysanne is the current head of House Bulwer, and has been ever since her father, Lord Jon Bulwer, died of a summer fever. If Alysanne had a brother, even a younger one, he should normally have inherited before her. It is therefore possible that this brother is a bastard, who has no inheritance rights unless he is legitimized. It is however surprising that a cousin of the Queen Consort of Westeros has no better suitor than a bastard. The other possibility is that Lady Alysanne's mother, Victaria Tyrell, has remarried after Jon's death and given a son to her new husband. However, if that were the case, this new marriage should appear in the appendices, but it is not.
- Lady Victaria Tyrell's brother:
With her marriage to Lord Jon Bulwer, Victaria became "Lady Bulwer". Taena might refer to her brother, and not her daughter's brother. Lady Victaria does indeed have a brother, Ser Leo Tyrell, but he is still married to Alys Beesbury who is still alive. No other brother is known to Victaria Tyrell. Therefore this possibility seems unlikely.
- Taena's invention:
The rumor could be false or misunderstood by Taena. This possibility would be consistent with the total absence of this character in the appendices.
- A mistake:
George R. R. Martin made a little mistake that should be fixed in future editions of A Feast for Crows.
