She was a noblewoman from House Massey and served as Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen’s lady-in-waiting during the Dance of the Dragons. Jordon Stevens plays Elinda in the TV version of House of the Dragon. The youngest and loveliest of Rhaenyra’s ladies-in-waiting was Elinda.
Four ladies-in-waited with Rhaenyra on her flight from King’s Landing to Dragonstone. Elinda Massey was one of them. It is said that she cut out her own eyes when she saw her queen being eaten by the dragon Sunfyre. After Rhaenyra died, Elinda and the other three ladies-in-waiting were locked up in Sea Dragon Tower until they could be paid back.
