In the realm there are good number of bastard sons (most famous being Jon Snow and Ramsay) but I did not observe any bastard daughters. Is there any bastard daughter mentioned in the story till now?

Many bastard daughters are mentioned in the story. The nomenclature rules are same as the ones used for naming their male counterparts i.e. Stone, Hill, Pyke, Snow, Sand, Rivers and Waters. Some of the female bastards of aristocrats are following:

Current Timeline

Following female bastards are mentioned for on-going timeline in ASOIAF.

  1. Mya Stone is bastard daughter of Robert Baratheon.

    She was fathered on a common woman by Robert during his teenage in Vale. Robert liked to spend time with her when she was a child even after he broke off with her Mother.

    Mya has inherited the traditional Baratheon black hair, blue eyes and attractive jaw from her father. She now serves Lords of Vale, specifically House Royce.

  2. Joy Hill is a bastard of Gerion Lannister who was a brother to Lord Tywin Lannister. Physical description is not given, most likely a blonde like her father.

  3. Sand Snakes is a name given to Bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne. All of them have inherited looks from their mothers along with Oberyn's widowpeak.

  4. Barra Waters was a bastard of King Robert Baratheon. She was murdered by Allar deem. She resembled her half sister Mya Stone so that means she got the same typical Baratheon features from Robert.

  5. Ellaria Sand is bastard daughter of Lord Harmen Uller of Hellholt. She was paramour of Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne.

  6. Falia Flowers is bastard daughter of Lord Humfrey Hewett. She became paramour of Euron Greyjoy during one of his raids on Reach.

  7. A prostitute Bella claims to be a bastard of King Robert Baratheon. She has the Baratheon black hair which gives credence to her claim. Not to mention the fact that Robert Baratheon did spend some time in brothels of her town during Battle of the Bells & Robert was never shy when it came to making babies.

    Jeyne Waters, the bastard daughter of Lord Alyn Velaryon and Princess Elaena Targaryen, founded House Longwaters when she married her full brother Jon Waters, a sibling marriage “à la Targaryen” as one might say. Their most notable descendent is Rennifer Longwaters, who was chief undergaoler of the Red Keep’s dungeons when Tyrion escaped. – tchrist Jul 2 '16 at 17:42
  • Um, Myrcella "Baratheon"? – Wad Cheber stands with Monica Oct 5 '17 at 13:16
  • @WadCheber Myrcella is considered a trueborn Baratheon, not a bastard. That's why I didn't add her to my list – Aegon Oct 5 '17 at 13:19

Beyond Aegon's answer, I thought it would be worth mentioning that (first book spoilers)

Princess Myrcella

is technically a bastard by blood, if not by status.

  • Not sure through. If the father has festered the child with other woman than registered wife then it is bastard. If the mother does the same, then the child do not have any status. It is not allowed for woman to have children with other man. – Manoj R Jun 8 '16 at 10:07

    @ManojR Not really. Princess Daena the Defiant had a bastard son named Daemon Blackfyre. Similarly Princess Elaena had two bastard children. Lady Ashara Dayne had also allegedly given birth to a bastard. – Aegon Jun 8 '16 at 12:06

    But then again, none of them were married to another man at that time. – Aegon Jun 8 '16 at 12:21

She's from the Telltale game, which could be argued as less canon, but Sera Flowers is a highborn bastard who uses the name Durwell to hide the fact.

  • If I am not wrong, in game House Durwell was depicted as extinct. In Books however, even though no members are mentioned, Durwell are supposed to be neighbouring lords near lands of house Webber which implies they are not extinct – Aegon Jun 8 '16 at 17:07
  • Ah yes Games say House Durwell died out 200 years ago. In Books, They are mentioned in The Sworn Sword which is set a 100 years before the current event. If they existed a 100 years before events in ASOIAF, that means games are wrong – Aegon Jun 13 '16 at 5:22
  • @Aegon The games apparently follow the TV canon. – Studoku Jun 13 '16 at 11:05

I think the two I would consider most memorable are Mya Stone and the babe that

was killed as part of Joffrey's rampage to kill all Robert's bastards. As someone else mentioned, Princess Myrcella is a bastard, but secretly so.. It is explicitly mentioned many times that her mother's husband is not her father, making her a bastard.
