A handmaiden or handmaid is a woman in service of a noblewoman, either a Queen or a noble lady.

Women of vassal houses sometimes also serve as hand maidens and companions to noble ladies in the household of their overlords or at the royal court.

Known handmaidens

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels the tasks of handmaidens or "lady attendants" vary depending on their origin. Highborn women aid and accompany higher-status ladies and even share their beds but do not perform tasks such as preparing baths or emptying chamber pots, which are reserved for lowborn women.
