The Golden Tooth is the seat of House Lefford in the Westerlands. It is located along the river road and is east of Ashemark and Sarsfield, west of Riverrun and Pinkmaiden, and north of Hornvale.[1]

Commonly known as the Tooth, the castle guards the one large pass through the mountains that allows direct travel between the Westerlands and the Riverlands to the east. It is generally held that in order to attack the Westerlands from the east, one must take the Golden Tooth to have a secure passage.[2]

History
