Keeper of the Gates of the Moon is a title originally held by a noble charged with holding the Gates of the Moon, the winter seat of House Arryn. The post was usually granted to kinsmen of House Arryn and it was never hereditary,[1] as the Arryns themselves had raised the Gates when they ruled as Kings of Mountain and Vale,[2] prior to the construction of the Eyrie.[3]

Petyr Baelish, the Lord Protector of the Eyrie and the Vale of Arryn, grants the title and the castle in perpetituity to Lord Nestor Royce and his descendants - in order to secure the support of Lord Nestor - thus forming House Royce of the Gates of the Moon.[2]
