|House Hogg of Sow's Horn|
|Lord||Ser Roger Hogg|
|Title||Knight of Sow's Horn|
Their arms have not been mentioned in the books, but it probably displays a pig.[N 1]
Priscella Hogg was a companion to Queen Daenaera Velaryon who was accused of a poisoning attempt against members of the royal household. Priscella was deemed to have only played a minor role in the plot, and on account of her sex, Lord Torrhen Manderly gave her a minor punishment. She was condemned to have her nose cut off, with the understanding that the punishment would be stayed should she give herself to the Faith, so long as she remained true to her vows.
A Feast for Crows
Ser Jaime Lannister leads his force past Sow's Horn. He meets with Ser Roger Hogg, the head of the household, who tells him that during the War of the Five Kings he was attacked by white star wolves (members of House Karstark) and lions (Lannister men) under the command of Ser Amory Lorch. Amory failed in his attempt to burn down Sow's Horn.
House Hogg at the end of the third century
The known Hoggs during the timespan of the events described in A Song of Ice and Fire are:
- Jon Hogg, known as Big Jon Hogg, who fought for the Iron Throne during the Faith Militant uprising.
- Ser Harys Hogg, a knight during the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.
- Priscella Hogg, a companion to Queen Daenaera Velaryon.
Behind the Scenes
House Hogg may be a reference by George R. R. Martin to the story Three Little Pigs. The earth and timber halls of the brothers Wode are burned down by raiders, but the stout stone of Sow's Horn resists Amory Lorch.
- Ser Harys Hogg was nicknamed "Harry the Ham" due to his house name and the fact he wore a pig’s head helm at tourneys.
