"Your mother was a dumb whore with a fat arse, did you know that?"
Robert Baratheon to Lancel Lannister[src]

Dorna Lannister née Swyft is an unseen character indirectly mentioned in the first season. She is the wife of Ser Kevan Lannister and mother of Ser Lancel Lannister.



Dorna is a member of House Swyft of Cornfield, daughter of Ser Harys Swyft, the head of the house. She married Ser Kevan Lannister, younger brother of Lord Tywin Lannister. Her husband's niece, Cersei Lannister, insisted that her husband, King Robert Baratheon, make Dorna and Kevan's son, Lancel, his squire.[1]

Season 1Edit

King Robert insults Lancel, calling his mother a whore with a fat arse.[2]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Dorna is the daughter of Ser Harys Swyft, the Knight of Cornfield and a loyal bannerman of House Lannister. Her father married her to Kevan Lannister and they have three sons: Lancel and the twins Martyn and Willem. They also have a daughter, Janei. Lancel is their eldest child and Janei the youngest.

According to Kevan, Dorna is a gentle soul, never comfortable except at home with friends and kin around her. She prays seven times a day and loves needlework and flowers.

Dorna is described "chinless lady, flat-chested and chicken-legged" with her lack of chin shared by her father, yet she is still very loved by her husband.

It is unclear from Robert's comment about Dorna being a "dumb whore with a fat arse" whether her physical description was changed in the series (as done with many characters) or he called her that way just to insult Lancel.

In his last moments, after being fatally injured by Varys, Kevan's last thought is about Dorna.
