House Toyne was a noble house from the Stormlands. According to semi-canon sources, they blazoned their arms with a winged heart, black on gold, within a black bordure embattled. Their words are "Fly High, Fly Far".
Ser Terrence Toyne was a knight of the Kingsguard who fell in love with Aegon the Unworthy's mistress, Bethany Bracken. When the king found them abed he had Toyne dismembered piece by piece, while Bethany was forced to watch before meeting her own death. Terrence's two brothers sought vengeance, but were themselves slain by Prince Aemon the Dragonknight. These series of actions led to the downfall of House Toyne.
Simon Toyne was the leader of the Kingswood Brotherhood. Ser Barristan Selmy killed Simon while rescuing Lady Jeyne Swann and her septa. Barristan misremembered Simon Toyne being the mystery knight that attended the tourney at Storm's End.
Historical members of House Toyne include:
- Ser Terrence Toyne, a knight of Aegon IV Targaryen's Kingsguard.
- Simon Toyne, the leader of the Kingswood Brotherhood.
- Myles Toyne, a captain-general of the Golden Company.
