Behind the Scenes
As George R. R. Martin has named a number of houses to colleagues or their work, the house is a homage to colleague Roger Zelazny. Zelazny's most famous series is The Chronicles of Amber, which includes nine princes. The unicorns and the maze that feature in the coat of arms of House Rogers are mentioned in Zelazny's series. The Patternmaker's Maze in Braavos and Qarl Correy may also be references to Zelazny.
