Neither of them were rescued during their stays in their respective towers, though Lady Donella's fate is considerably worse.]]
** The fourth book of the series has a chapter called "The Princess in the Tower," about Princess Arianne of Dorne [[spoiler: after she has tried and failed to crown Myrcella Queen of the Seven Kingdoms and start a war with the Lannisters]].
** And Val, the so-called "wildling princess", is held prisoner in one of the towers of Castle Black.

Added DiffLines:

** Ned ''thought'' he was rescuing Lyanna from her kidnapper Prince Rhaegar, and tracked her down in a remote tower guarded by [[RuleOfThree three]] [[ThresholdGuardians knights]]... but when he gets to her, she's already [[DeathByChildbirth dying from bearing Rhaegar's child]], and there are ambiguous implications that her disappearance may have been [[{{Elopement}} voluntary]].

* Namine in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories''. The twist is that [[spoiler:although she was legitimately being held prisoner, she was cooperating with the bad guys by [[FakeMemories manipulating Sora's memories]] so that he would want to save her and thus fall into the bad guys' trap. Her conscience wins out and she turns against her captors]].

[[spoiler: Within Snowe's dream, Dream Astra is one too. It's not necessary to save her to finish the game, but doing so leads to the GoodEnding, while [[DownerEnding not doing so...]]]]
