Forms of Address

Here is a nice, accurate article detailing how forms of address work in Westeros.

Re: Forms of Address

I would like to add in a few points:

-A lord or ruling/consort lady may be referred to as "His/Her Lordship/Ladyship" in the third person.

-The heads of the Masterly Houses of the North may be referred to as "<Firstname><Surname>, The Master of <Seat>" or if female "<Firstname><Surname>, The Lady of <Seat>.  Ex: "Galbart Glover, The Master of Deepwood Motte" ; "Eddara Tallhart, The Lady of Torrhen's Square".

-In speech the male head of a Masterly House can be addressed as "My lord" or "My lord of <House>/<Seat>", but never "Lord <Firstname>/<Surname>".  Ex. Galbart Glover may be addressed to as "My lord" , "My lord of Glover", or "My lord of Deepwood Motte".

-A female head or consort of a Masterly House can be addressed the same as the wife of a lord, or a lady in her own right. Ex. Eddara Tallhart may be addressed to as "My lady" , "My lady of Tallhart", "My lady of Torrhen's Square", "Lady Eddara" or "Lady Tallhart".

-A female head or consort of a Knightly house is addressed the same as the wife of a Lord, or a lady in her own right. Ex. Janna Fossoway may be addressed as "My lady", "My lady of Fossoway", or "Lady Janna". There have been no instances in the books where a female landed knight/consort has been addressed as "Lady <House>", but it is possible that this is also correct since there have been a lack of them mentioned.

-The term "My lord/lady of <House>" can be shortened to "My lord/lady <House>", if they are the head/consort. Ex. Lisa Arryn can still be addressed as "My lady Arryn".

-For unknighted, untitled noblemen, it is occasionally courteous to address them as "My lord <Firstname>". But usually this is only done to distinguish them between another unknighted, untitled nobleman in the same room. Ex. Tyrion Lannister may be addressed as "My lord Tyrion" on occasion. Though this is more of a courtesy, rather than a proper address.
