House Strong of Harrenhal was a noble house in the Riverlands. Their seat was Harrenhal. Like the other families who have been in possession of Harrenhal, their family died out.[1] According to semi-canon sources they blazoned their arms with a tripartite pale blue, red, and green on white.[2]

History

See also Harrenhal

House Strong came into possession of Harrenhal after House Towers had died out. They held possession over Harrenhal until 131 AC, when Lord Larys Strong, the last of his line, was executed. After the house became extinct, possession of Harrenhall went to House Lothston.

During the reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen, Ser Lucamore Strong was elevated to the Kingsguard. He was however caught breaking his vows after fathering sixteen children. He was gelded and sent to join the Night's Watch. There is a song about Lucamore.

During the Dance of the Dragons, the House's wealth was "not-inconsiderable" according to Archmaester Gyldayn. Lord Larys "Clubfoot" sat on the green council while his castellan and kinsman Ser Simon held Harrenhal against the blacks. That the House supported the green cause may mean that Rhaenyra Targaryen's sons were indeed not those of Harwin Strong, or at least that their affair ended badly.[3]
