House Magnar of Kingshouse is a noble house from Kingshouse on the island of Skagos in the north. According to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms with a green lobster on white, its claws holding a black harpoon.[1] Their name derives from magnar, an Old Tongue word meaning "lord".[2]


It is suggested that the Night's King was a Magnar, among the many possibilities.[3]
