Sharra Moorshead

Jon's elderly widow


Sharra Moorshead is the widow of Lord Jon Moorshead and the mother of Merik and Nolan Moorshead. Because she often butts heads with other matrons of the House, she is commonly known as the Queen of Horns. Others call her “Old Shar”.

Appearance and Character

Lady Sharra is 63 with white hair and is very small. She walks with a cane and claims to be near deaf.


As a young lady in House Arryn of Gulltown, Sharra fell in love with a sellsword, Jon Moorshead, employed by her father. Jon was soon knighted during the War of the Ninepenny Kings. Jon was awarded a lordship and took Sharra for his wife. Knowing Jon’s proximity to Riverrun, the Arryns of Gulltown hoped to use the marriage as the next best thing as an alliance to the Tullys. It was not.

Recent Events

Sharra left Blackhorn before the wedding planning began in order to smooth things over with the Dannetts. She took Septa Alanna with her in order to educate her on “proper diplomacy”.
