House Redfort of Redfort is one of the principal noble houses in the Vale of Arryn.[1] They blazon their arms with a red castle on a white field within a red embattled border.[2][3] Their motto does not appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources it is As Strong as Stone.[4]

History

The Redforts trace their descent to the First Men that inhabited the Vale before the coming of the Andals.[5] The Redforts allied with Robar II Royce, High King of the Vale, the Fingers and the Mountains of the Moon, against the Andals. Robar was defeated in the Battle of the Seven Stars, however, and Torgold Tollett chopped off Lord Redfort's arm during the battle. The Redforts submitted to Artys I Arryn and then served House Arryn, the Kings of Mountain and Vale.[6]

Ser Adrian Redfort was a member of Rhaenyra Targaryen's Queensguard.[7]

Domeric Bolton squired for three years with the Redforts.[8]
