House Mullendore of Uplands is one of the principal noble houses from the Reach[2]. Their seat, Uplands, is east of Oldtown. They are sworn to the Hightowers.[1]

Their arms depict a field of black-and-orange butterflies strewn over white.[3][4] Their motto does not appear in the books.


In 55 AC, Lord Mullendore married Jennis Templeton. It was considered an exceptional match for her, and a triumph for Queen Alysanne Targaryen.[5]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Lord Mullendore declared Uplands for the blacks, going against his Hightower overlords.[6][7]

Ser Matthew Mullendore participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC,[8] his arms spotted by Duncan the Tall in the gathered heraldry.[9]

Blackshield rode at a tourney in Oldtown, where he was unhorsed and unmasked by Ser Barristan Selmy.[10]

Mark loses his arm and his monkey at the Battle of the Blackwater,[12] and is one of the nobles captured. He bends the knee to King Joffrey Baratheon.[13] An Uplands man-at-arms is killed by the squire Alyn Ambrose in the battle.[14]
