Eglantine was the septa of Princess Myrcella Baratheon.

Biography

Background

Eglantine is a septa of the Faith of the Seven. She serves at the Red Keep in King's Landing as governess and companion to Princess Myrcella Baratheon.

Season 2

Eglantine is among the royal entourage for a tourney to celebrate Joffrey's nameday.[1]

Eglantine accompanies Myrcella on her journey.

Eglantine later watches over Myrcella as she plays blind man's bluff with two courtiers[2] before accompanying her to Sunspear, as part of the betrothal arranged by Tyrion to Prince Trystane Martell.[3]

Season 5

While Myrcella on her way back to King's Landing from Sunspear (and dies on the way from poisoning[4]), it is likely that Eglantine accompanies her.

Season 8

Assuming that Eglantine returned to the Red Keep after Myrcella's death, it is likely she is killed along with most of the royal household when Daenerys and her troops destroy the city.[5]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Septa Eglantine is a loyal servant of the royal family and Princess Myrcella Baratheon.

Similarly to the show, she accompanies Myrcella as a member of her retinue when she is sent to Dorne as part of the marriage alliance with House Martell. On the way, Eglantine puts brown dye in Myrcella's hair; she says it is a game, but Myrcella knows it is meant to protect her, in case Stannis captures the ship.
