History

The ancestors of House Borrell were pirate kings until the Starks came down on them with fire and sword.[3] For five thousand years the Borrells have had the mark, a sort of webbing between the three middle fingers of their hands.[3][5]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Prince Jacaerys Velaryon gained Houses Borrell and Sunderland for the blacks during his visit to Sisterton.[4] The Sunderlands dragged the Three Sisters into two of the Blackfyre rebellions, for which the Sistermen suffered grievously.
