A Song of Ice and Fire Wiki

Lady is a direwolf bonded to Sansa Stark. She is the smallest of the litter that was found at the beginning of A Game of Thrones. Her littermates are Shaggydog, Nymeria, Ghost, Grey Wind and Summer.


A Game of Thrones[]

Lady is the direwolf pup given to Sansa Stark, after the Direwolf Mother is discovered dead in the snow by Sansa's elder brothers, Robb Stark and Jon Snow[2]. Sansa names her Lady.

She accompanies Sansa on the journey to King's Landing. Septa Mordane frowns down upon Sansa for feeding her under the table, but Sansa points out that she isn't a dog, so it isn't unladylike. When Prince Joffrey Baratheon asks Sansa to go riding with him, he also asks that she leave Lady behind, which Sansa reluctantly agrees to do[3]. After Nymeria attacks the prince, his mother, Cersei Lannister, demands to see a direwolf executed. As Nymeria is absent, Lady is instead sentenced to death. The act is carried about by Lord Eddard Stark, who arranges for her to be sent to be buried at Winterfell, so that the queen doesn't get her hands on the pelt[4].
