House Reyne of Castamere was a noble house from Castamere in the Westerlands. It was once the richest and most powerful Westerland house after the Lannisters. According to semi-canon sources they blazoned their arms with a red lion rampant regardant with a forked tail, armed and langued gold, on silver.[2]



The Reynes sided with the greens during the Dance of the Dragons. Lord Reyne was killed during the Battle by the Lakeshore.[3]

Robb Reyne was a famous knight and partisan of Daemon Blackfyre.

The lord of House Reyne during the rule of Lord Tytos Lannister was dubbed the "Red Lion of Castamere". When the match of Genna Lannister and Emmon Frey was announced, the Red Lion angrily left the hall at Casterly Rock. Later during the rule of Tytos, Lord Reyne rebelled against his overlord along with the Tarbecks of Tarbeck Hall. Lord Reyne was an experienced warrior while Lord Tytos was rather weak, so it appeared that their rebellion could be successful. In the end Tytos's young son and heir, Tywin Lannister, held the command of the Lannister army. Tywin besieged the castles and destroyed the rebels. After the rebellion the seats of the rebels were brought down and both houses were exterminated. It is not known if the rebels died in acts of war or that they were executed.

"The Rains of Castamere"

The song "The Rains of Castamere" was made about the rebellion after its end. The refrain goes:

And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
as long and sharp as yours.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.[4]
