Lucinda Penrose was a noblewoman from House Penrose during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen.[2] She was a companion to Queen Daenaera Velaryon.[3]


Lucinda was one of the many maidens harmed or scandalized leading up to the ball known as the Maiden's Day Cattle Show in 133 AC. She was set upon by outlaws whilst hawking along Blackwater Bay, not half a day's ride from the castle. Her hawk was killed, her horse was stolen, and a man held her down while another slit her nose open. Lord Unwin Peake may have engineered the attack to promote his own daughter as King Aegon III's second wife.[2]

After the king married Lady Daenaera Velaryon, Lucinda became a lady companion to the new queen, and blamed her for the attack. After a poisoning attempt on the king and queen, Lucinda admitted to wanting Daenaera dead, as if her nose had not been slit, she would be queen and Daenaera would be serving her, and lamented that no man wished to marry her.[3]

Lucinda was deemed to have only played a minor role in the plot, and on account of her sex, Lord Torrhen Manderly gave her a minor punishment. She was condemned to have her nose cut off, with the understanding that the punishment would be stayed should she give herself to the Faith, so long as she remained true to her vows.[3]
