House Stackspear is a noble house of the westerlands sworn to Casterly Rock.

Neither their arms or their motto appear in the books. They blazon their arms with two crossed black spears on checkered silver and gold.[1][2]


According to a semi-canon source,[3] the Stackspears supported Tywin Lannister when he suppressed the Reyne-Tarbeck rebellion.
