link=House Tully

House Tully is one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms. They are an old noble house of First Men origin, dating back to the Age of Heroes. After his father bent the knee to the Andal conqueror Armistead Vance, Axel Tully was given land at the junction of the Red Fork and the Tumblestone, where the Tullys constructed their seat of Riverrun.

The Tullys were never river kings, but they rose to prominence during Aegon's Conquest. Edmyn Tully, Lord of Riverrun, was the first of the river lords to desert King Harren Hoare, giving his support to Aegon the Conqueror. For this Aegon rewarded him with dominion over the riverlands as the Lord Paramount of the Trident. During the Dance of the Dragons, House Tully was divided on which side to support. Late in the war the young Kermit Tully inherited the rule over the riverlands. Despite his young age, he fought tirelessly for Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen and her son, King Aegon III, bringing House Tully to the height of their power. However, they have had problematic bannermen, including the Blackwoods, Brackens, and Freys. During Robert's Rebellion, House Tully became involved in the conflict when Lord Hoster Tully accepted the betrothals of his daughters, Catelyn and Lysa, to Lords Eddard Stark and Jon Arryn.
