Who is Sara Snow?

Sara Snow was the bastard daughter of Lord Rickon Stark of Winterfell. This was the account of Mushroom, the court fool of King’s Landing. Mushroom is one of the few Westerosi historians who claim that Sara Snow did, in fact, exist.

He goes on to say that she was married to Prince Jacaerys Velaryon. His account of history states that the two met when Prince Jacaerys Velaryon flew North to Winterfell to meet with Lord Cregan Stark. According to his tale, he met Sara Snow unbeknownst to Lord Cregan Stark and had intimate relations with her amongst the snow.

When Lord Cregan found out about this, he was furious. He was only calmed when Sara told him that the two were in love. She claimed they had secretly wed in the godswood of Winterfell, speaking their vows in front of the Heart Tree.

Mushroom speculates that this union between Jacaerys and Sara caused the Pact between the two houses, known as the Pact of Ice and Fire. However, another historian, Archmaester Gyldayn, questions whether this story is true in any way.

He doubts Sara Snow’s existence and claims that the story of her union with Prince Jacaerys is another one of his “fevered imaginings.” Gyldayn does concede that it is possible that Sara Snow did exist and that Prince Jacaerys slept with her.

However, he claims that any talk of marriage between the two is preposterous. The reason for this is that Jacaerys was betrothed to Lady Baela Targaryen from the age of eleven. Gyldayn claims that the prince would never go as far as to break his betrothal to protect the virtue of a “northern bastard girl.”
