Maris the Maid, called the Most Fair, is a legendary daughter of Garth Greenhand and ancestor of House Hightower. Her beauty was so renowned that fifty lords vied for her hand in the first tourney held in Westeros. The victor was Argoth Stone-Skin, but Maris wed King Uthor of the High Tower before he could claim her, and Argoth spent the rest of days raging outside the walls of Oldtown, roaring for his bride.[1]
