House Sunglass of Sweetport Sound is a noble house sworn to Dragonstone, with an old and deep faith in the Seven. The exact location of Sweetport Sound in the Crownlands has not been stated.

Their blazon is composed by seven golden seven-pointed stars in a ring on white.[1][2] Originally, George R. R. Martin had envisioned the seven stars being silver, but after seeing the heraldry rendered he considered that silver and white did not differentiate themselves enough.[Citation Needed] Their motto does not appear in the books.


During the War of the Usurper, the Sunglasses presumably remained loyal to House Targaryen.[Citation Needed]
