House Grafton of Gulltown is a noble house from the Vale of Arryn. They rule over Gulltown, a main port and populated city.

They blazon their arms with a burning tower in yellow, within a black pile, upon flaming red.[1][2] Their words do not appear in the books.


The Graftons were an Andal house during the Andal invasion. Gerold Grafton was an Andal knight from Andalos who established the rule of House Grafton over Gulltown.[3]

At the start of Robert's Rebellion, Marq Grafton stayed loyal to King Aerys II Targaryen instead of following his liege lord, Jon Arryn. Marq was slain by Robert I Baratheon during the taking of Gulltown.[4]
