Dawn by Henning Ludvigsen, Fantasy Flight Games ©

Dawn is the ancestral greatsword of House Dayne, who bestow the title Sword of the Morning on the sword's bearer. It is said to be made from metal forged from the heart of a fallen star.[1] Its blade is as pale as milkglass.[2] The name of the Daynes' castle, Starfall, and their arms, featuring a white sword and falling star, both reference Dawn.

The last known user of the sword was Ser Arthur Dayne, who died at the Tower of Joy. After the fight, Eddard Stark rode to Starfall to deliver Dawn to Arthur's sister, Ashara Dayne.


Dawn remains at Starfall, until another Sword of the Morning shall arise.[3]
- George R. R. Martin
