House Baratheon of King's Landing is the royal line of House Baratheon, from which it comes. The second ruler of the house, Joffrey I, created their new coat of arms, the crowned stag of House Baratheon, black on gold, and the lion of Lannister, gold on crimson, combatant.[1][2] The new king, Tommen I continues to use this blazon.[3]

History

After the War of the Usurper, the house claimed the Iron Throne in King's Landing and the Isle of Dragonstone, with the support of House Stark, House Tully, House Arryn, and, eventually, House Lannister.
