[[Eddard Stark]]'s older brother [[Brandon Stark (Son of Rickard)|Brandon]] took Barbrey's virginity and she hoped to marry him, but his father Lord [[Rickard Stark]] was advised by his [[Maesters|maester]] that it would be more beneficial to forge an alliance with [[House Tully]], Lords Paramount of the Riverlands, by betrothing Brandon to [[Catelyn Stark|Catelyn Tully]]. Barbrey has hated maesters ever since. Brandon and his father died at the outbreak of [[Robert's Rebellion]], but the planned alliance between the Starks and Tullys continued with the marriage of Catelyn Tully to Brandon's younger brother Eddard. Barbrey's husband Lord William Dustin died at the end of Robert's Rebellion, fighting with Eddard Stark against King Aerys' surviving [[Kingsguard]]. Barbrey never forgave Eddard for William's death, and particularly because he wasn't able to bring William's bones back North to bury in his ancestral home. Combined with her anger at the late Lord Rickard because he forbid Brandon to marry her, Barbrey became very bitter towards the Starks over the years.

BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Barbrey Dustin is a member of House Ryswell by birth and House Dustin by marriage. She is the Lady of Barrowton.

Season 2Edit

When Tywin Lannister calls out Arya Stark on her speech not being like that of a lowborn, she lies saying that her mother was a handmaid to Lady Dustin and taught her how to speak properly.[1]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Barbrey Ryswell is the head of House Dustin and the widow of Lord Willam Dustin, who fought alongside Ned Stark during Robert's Rebellion. Lord Roose Bolton was married to her late eldest sister, Bethany. It isn't clear if Willam left an heir, because Lady Barbrey continues to rule House Dustin in his name. She usually leads House Dustin to act in concert with House Ryswell, which is still ruled by her own father Rodrik Ryswell.

Lady Dustin has wrinkles around her mouth and eyes, but she is still tall, unbent and handsome. Her hair is equal parts brown and grey, wearing it tied behind her head in a widow's knot. She usually dresses all in black, but she sometimes accentuates her attire with vair. While she is intelligent, she has grown into a bitter woman over the years, among other things due to her husband's death.

In her youth, Lady Dustin was infatuated with Brandon Stark, who took her maidenhead. She claims Brandon never wanted to marry Catelyn Tully and that the match was made when Lord Rickard Stark's maester, Walys, put the idea in Rickard's head. Lady Dustin is extremely distrustful of maesters in general and refers to them as grey rats.

Lady Dustin was quite fond of her nephew Domeric, and as such loathes Ramsay Snow openly, whom she suspects had a hand in the former's death. Ramsay dislikes Lady Dustin and has malicious intentions toward her, but his father forbids him to harm her, as after the Red Wedding, she is one of the few truly loyal vassals House Bolton has.

Lady Dustin holds a grudge against Eddard Stark, even after his demise, for not bringing her husband's bones north with him so she could bury him at his ancestral home.
