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.[1] Their words are "Fly High, Fly Far".[2]


Ser Terrence Toyne of the Kingsguard fell in love with one of Aegon IV Targaryen's mistresses. When the king found out he took both their heads. Terrence's two brothers sought vengeance, but were themselves slain by Aemon the Dragonknight. The 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 a tourney at Storm's End.[3]

The last known member of House Toyne was Myles Toyne. Known as Blackheart, he was Captain-General of the Golden Company, a sellsword company of exiles in Essos.
