Red Lake is the seat of House Crane in the Reach. The castle is located on the northeastern shore of a lake of the same name in the northwest of the Reach. Red Lake is northwest of Goldengrove, northeast of Old Oak, and southeast of Cornfield.[1]

History

According to legend, Rose of Red Lake was a daughter of Garth Greenhand and the founder of House Crane. Brandon of the Bloody Blade, one of Garth's sons, is said to have slain so many children of the forest that what had been called Blue Lake was renamed Red Lake because of their blood.[2]

Red Lake was part of the Reach proper of old.[3] The lake was added to the Kingdom of the Reach by Garth III Gardener through pacts of friendship and mutual defense.[4]

Lancel IV Lannister, King of the Rock, was killed in battle at Red Lake.[5]

After the Dance of the Dragons, the wild dragon Silverwing made a lair within one of Red Lake's islands.[6]
