|“||You do not belong across the world with the bloody Stone Men. You are the Princess Shireen, of House Baratheon...and you are my daughter.||„|
|~ Stannis to Shireen|
Princess Shireen Baratheon was only surviving child of Stannis Baratheon and Selyse Florent, younger sister of Petyr, Tommard and Edric Baratheon and character in the novel series A Song of Ice And Fire and the HBO adaptation Game of Thrones. She serves as a minor character in A Song of Ice and Fire and as a supporting heroine in Game of Thrones, season 3, 4 and 5. She was played by Kerry Ingram.
Shireen is the daughter of Stannis Baratheon and Selyse Florent, and her older stillborn siblings are Petyr, Tommard and Edric Baratheon. Shireen is Stannis' only living daughter because her siblings are stillborn. Her father is the head of House Baratheon of Dragonstone and has declerated King of the Iron Throne, and her mother is one of the daughters of Ser Ryam Florent, a knight of House Florent, younger brother of Lord Alester Florent, the Lord of Brightwater Keep and the head of House Florent.
Across the left side of her face she has scarred by Greyscale that she received during early childhood. Although this is usually considered a fatal disease, Stannis Baratheon called on all healers he knew to help her, and through a combination of efforts they were able to cure her.
Selyse Florent dismisses Shireen as sinful and stubborn and resents her for having a male child, she gave birth to a stillbirth, and when it came to being a sickly little girl, she successfully gave birth to her. Shireen, on the other hand, avoids her mother because she is frightened by her fanatical devotion to the Lord of Light. Shireen loves her father deeply, and he loves her too, she is also close to Lord Davos Seaworth to whom she is like his own daughter.
Selyse accuses Shireen of being sinful and naughty, but Stannis disapproves of that by saying she's just a child. She helps Davos write a letter to the Iron Bank and go with his mother and his father to the Wall.
She spends time on the Wall teaching Gilly to read, then goes on a quest with her father to Winterfell. Red Priesthood Melisandre persuades Stannis to burn his daughter at the stake, which he does. Although she did not love her in her lifetime, her mother hangs herself afterwards.
She is very benign and good, always ready to help others no matter what conditions they may be.
