House Norrey is the formal name given to the Norreys, a mountain clan from the north that inhabits the high mountains north of the wolfswood.[1] Of the mountain clans, the Norreys live closest to the Gift.[2] The chief of the clan is known as "The Norrey", although at Winterfell he is given the treatment of "Lord Norrey".

Their arms do not appear in the book, but according to semi-canon sources, they blazon their banners with six green thistles over a yellow field.[3]

History

It is suggested that the Night's King was a Norrey, among the many possibilities.[4]
