|Title||Lord of Harrenhal|
|Died out||After 212 AC|
House Lothston was the sixth noble house to rule Harrenhal, receiving the title and lands after the extinction of House Strong. They held Harrenhal until three or four generations before A Song of Ice and Fire and were a powerful house which once loomed large in the histories of the Seven Kingdoms.
The Lothstons had a bad reputation; Lord Lucas Lothston and his son Manfryd were renowned for their black deeds. According to Ser Eustace Osgrey, Manfred Lothston betrayed Daemon Blackfyre in the Blackfyre Rebellion. Lady Danelle Lothston, called Mad Danelle, was said to send giant bats out to capture children for her cookpots, to have bathed in blood and feasted on flesh. When Lord Bloodraven marched on Whitewalls to quash the Second Blackfyre Rebellion, among the river lords who came in support was Lady Danelle. A female member of the house, Jeyne Lothston, was the eighth of King Aegon IV Targaryen's mistresses.
The last Lothston was killed with the help of an ancestor of Ser Illifer the Penniless in unknown circumstances. After the line ended the lordship of Harrenhal was given to House Whent. Ben Blackthumb worked as a boy for Lord Lothston and later for the grandfather and father of Lady Shella Whent. 
A Storm of Swords
Ser Jaime Lannister uses a shield found in the armory of Harrenhal with the arms of House Lothston on his ride back to King's Landing. He remembers the stories of Lady Lothston who bathed in tubs of blood and presided over feasts of human flesh.
