House Tarth of Evenfall Hall is a noble house from Evenfall Hall in the Stormlands.

They are one of the main houses sworn to Storm's End.[1]

Their blazon is quartered with yellow suns on rose and white crescents and azure.[2][3] Their words are not known. Lord Tarth is sometimes called the Evenstar.[4][5]



Ser Quentyn Tarth participated in the Ashford Tourney.

A Dance with Dragons

Someone who Jaime recognizes as Brienne recruits his help in the Riverlands, ostensibly to help in saving Sansa Stark from Sandor Clegane.[8] This story is unlikely, however, because Sansa Stark is in the Vale and Sandor Clegane perished. There has been no word on either of the two since.[9]
