Tall and willowy, Jeyne was a famed beauty. She was first wed with Lord Alyn Tarbeck, who died during the Battle Beneath the Gods Eye, fighting for the rebels. Jeyne gave him a posthumous son.
Jeyne was being courted by the son of the Lord of Casterly Rock before Maegor I Targaryen called for her to be wed to him along with Elinor Costayne and Rhaena Targaryen in a single ceremony. The trio became known as the Black Brides, as they were all widows.
In 47 AC, she was with child, but went into labour three moons before her baby was due, and gave birth to a stillborn monster. She did not long outlive her child.
