Priscella Hogg was a noblewoman from House Hogg during the reign of King Aegon III Targaryen. She was a companion to Aegon's second wife, Queen Daenaera Velaryon.[1]

Appearance and Character

Priscella was a sad and somewhat simple girl, stout, short, and plain of face.[1]

History

In 135 AC, Priscella was accused of a poisoning attempt against members of the royal household. She had conceived the notion that Prince Viserys Targaryen would marry her if only Larra of Lys were dead. She told the court that he smiled whenever he saw her, and his shoulder once brushed against her bosom when he passed her on the steps.[1]

Priscella was deemed to have only played a minor role in the plot, and on account of her sex, Lord Torrhen Manderly, the Hand of the King, gave her a minor punishment. She was condemned to have her nose cut off, with the understanding that the punishment would be put aside should she give herself to the Faith and so long as she remained true to her vows.[1]
