Although she is Lily's niece (according to Herman, the daughter of Lily's sister), she is always referred to as "Marilyn Munster" (while the character was being developed, her name was Marilyn Mundane). The fractured familial ties were never explained. Although Lily and her father the Count (AKA Grandpa) are vampire/ghouls, Lily's brother Lester is a werewolf. One can only guess at the nature of Grandpa's late wife/ Lily's mother. A photograph of a woman in European peasant garb was seen faintly in Marilyn's bedroom, suggesting it may be Marilyn's mother.
