WESTEROS

THE BOY KING

King Tommen's banner shows the crowned stag of Baratheon, black on gold, and the lion of Lannister, gold on crimson, combatant.

THE KING AT THE WALL

STANNIS BARATHEON, the First of His Name, second son of Lord Steffon Baratheon and Lady Cassana of House Estermont, Lord of Dragonstone, styling himself King of Westeros,

Stannis has taken for his banner the fiery heart of the Lord of Light—a red heart surrounded by orange flames upon a yellow field. Within the heart is the crowned stag of House Baratheon, in black.

KING OF THE ISLES AND THE NORTH

The Greyjoys of Pyke claim descent from the Grey King of the Age of Heroes. Legend says the Grey King ruled the sea itself and took a mermaid to wife. Aegon the Dragon ended the line of the last King of the Iron Islands, but allowed the ironborn to revive their ancient custom and choose who should have the primacy among them. They chose Lord Vickon Greyjoy of Pyke. The Greyjoy sigil is a golden kraken upon a black field. Their words are We Do Not Sow.

HOUSES GREAT AND SMALL

HOUSE ARRYN

The Arryns are descended from the Kings of Mountain and Vale. Their sigil is a white moon-and-falcon upon a sky blue field. House Arryn has taken no part in the War of the Five Kings.

The Arryn words are As High as Honor.

HOUSE BARATHEON

The youngest of the Great Houses, House Baratheon was born during the Wars of Conquest when Orys Baratheon, rumored to be a bastard brother of Aegon the Conqueror, defeated and slew Argilac the Arrogant, the last Storm King. Aegon rewarded him with Argilac's castle, lands, and daughter. Orys took the girl to bride, and adopted the banner, honors, and words of her line.

In the 283rd year after Aegon's Conquest, Robert of House Baratheon, Lord of Storm's End, overthrew the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen, to win the Iron Throne. His claim to the crown derived from his grandmother, a daughter of King Aegon V Targaryen, though Robert preferred to say his warhammer was his claim.

The Baratheon sigil is a crowned stag, black, on a golden field. Their words are Ours is the Fury.

HOUSE FREY

The Freys are bannermen to House Tully, but have not always been diligent in their duty. At the outset of the War of the Five Kings, Robb Stark won Lord Walder's allegiance by pledging to marry one of his daughters or granddaughters. When he wed Lady Jeyne Westerling instead, the Freys conspired with Roose Bolton and murdered the Young Wolf and his followers at what became known as the Red Wedding.

by his fourth wife, {LADY ALYSSA, of House Blackwood}:

    • LOTHAR FREY, his twelfth son, called LAME LOTHAR,
    • SER JAMMOS FREY, his thirteenth son,
      • Jammos’s son, WALDER, called BIG WALDER, eight, a squire in service to Ramsay Bolton,
    • SER WHALEN FREY, his fourteenth son,
    • MORYA, his third daughter, m. Ser Flement Brax,
    • TYTA, his fourth daughter, called TYTA THE MAID,
  • by his fifth wife, {LADY SARYA of House Whent}: no progeny,
  • by his sixth wife, {LADY BETHANY of House Rosby}:
    • SER PERWYN FREY, his Walder’s fifteenth son, {SER BENFREY FREY}, his Walder’s sixteenth son, died of a wound received at the Red Wedding, MAESTER WILLAMEN, his seventeenth son, in service at Longbow Hall, OLYVAR FREY, his eighteenth son, once a squire to Robb Stark, ROSLIN, his fifth daughter, m. Lord Edmure Tully at the Red Wedding, pregnant with his child,
  • by his seventh wife, {LADY ANNARA of House Farring}:
    • ARWYN, his sixth daughter, a maid of fourteen, WENDEL, his nineteenth son, a page at Seagard, COLMAR, his twentieth son, eleven and promised to the Faith, WALTYR, called TYR, his twenty-first son, ten, ELMAR, his twenty-second and lastborn son, a boy of nine briefly betrothed to Arya Stark, SHIREI, his seventh daughter and youngest child, a girl of seven,
  • his eighth wife, LADY JOYEUSE of House Erenford, presently with child,
  • Lord Walder’s natural children, by sundry mothers,

HOUSE LANNISTER

The Lannisters of Casterly Rock remain the principal support of King Tommen's claim to the Iron Throne. They boast of descent from Lann the Clever, the legendary trickster of the Age of Heroes. The gold of Casterly Rock and the Golden Tooth has made them the wealthiest of the Great Houses. The Lannister sigil is a golden lion upon a crimson field. Their words are Hear Me Roar!

HOUSE MARTELL

Dorne was the last of the Seven Kingdoms to swear fealty to the Iron Throne. Blood, custom, geography, and history all helped to set the Dornishmen apart from the other kingdoms. At the outbreak of the War of the Five Kings Dorne took no part, but when Myrcella Baratheon was betrothed to Prince Trystane, Sunspear declared its support for King Joffrey. The Martell banner is a red sun pierced by a golden spear. Their words are Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.

  • Prince Doran’s court at the Water Gardens:

HOUSE STARK

The Starks trace their descent from Brandon the Builder and the Kings of Winter. For thousands of years, they ruled from Winterfell as Kings in the North, until Torrhen Stark, the King Who Knelt, chose to swear fealty to Aegon the Dragon rather than give battle. When Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell was executed by King Joffrey, the northmen foreswore their loyalty to the Iron Throne and proclaimed Lord Eddard's son Robb as King in the North. During the War of the Five Kings, he won every battle, but was betrayed and murdered by the Freys and Boltons at the Twins during his uncle's wedding.

The Stark arms show a grey direwolf racing across an ice-white field. The Stark words are Winter Is Coming.

HOUSE TULLY

Lord Edmyn Tully of Riverrun was one of the first of the river lords to swear fealty to Aegon the Conqueror. King Aegon rewarded him by raising House Tully to dominion over all the lands of the Trident. The Tully sigil is a leaping trout, silver, on a field of rippling blue and red. The Tully words are Family, Duty, Honor.

  • EDMURE TULLY, Lord of Riverrun, taken captive at his wedding and held prisoner by the Freys,
    • his bride, LADY ROSLIN of House Frey, now with child,
    • his sister, {LADY CATELYN STARK}, widow of Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell, slain at the Red Wedding,
    • his sister, {LADY LYSA ARRYN}, widow of Lord Jon Arryn of the Vale, pushed to her death from the Eyrie,
    • his uncle, SER BRYNDEN TULLY, called THE BLACKFISH, lately castellan of Riverrun, now an outlaw
  • his household at Riverrun:

HOUSE TYRELL

The Tyrells rose to power as stewards to the Kings of the Reach, though they claim descent from Garth Greenhand, gardener king of the First Men. When the last king of House Gardener was slain on the Field of Fire, his steward Harlen Tyrell surrendered Highgarden to Aegon the Conqueror. Aegon granted him the castle and dominion over the Reach. Mace Tyrell declared his support for Renly Baratheon at the onset of the War of the Five Kings, and gave him the hand of his daughter Margaery. Upon Renly's death, Highgarden made alliance with House Lannister, and Margaery was betrothed to King Joffrey.

The Tyrell sigil is a golden rose on a green-grass field. Their words are Growing Strong.

References and Notes

  1. The printed appendix erroneously states Jon Connington was once Lord of Storm's End instead of Griffin's Roost (A Forum of Ice and Fire: The ASOIAF wiki thread).
  2. The appendices of A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons list Roger, Rickard, and Roose as Rodrik's quarrelsome cousins, but the text of A Dance with Dragons specifies them as his sons in 20. Reek II and 32. Reek III.
