House Allyrion of Godsgrace is a major Dornish noble house. Godsgrace sits near the confluence of the Scourge and the Vaith into the Greenblood.

Their blazon is a golden hand on gyronny red and black.[4][5] Their words do not appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources they are "No Foe May Pass".[6]


House Allyrion was founded by Andal adventurers during the coming of the Andals to Dorne, along with Houses Jordayne, Martell, Qorgyle, Santagar, Uller, and Vaith.[3]

House Martell was once a vassal to the Allyrions of Godsgrace.[3]

During the First Dornish War, the Allyrions fled their castle before the arrival of Queen Rhaenys Targaryen on her dragon, Meraxes.[7][8]

Two sons


  1. It is unclear who this Lord of Godsgrace is. If the reference is an error, Lady Delonne Allyrion might have been intended. Possibly, the "Lord of Godsgrace" is Delonne's husband. A third option is that this is a reference to Delonne's son and heir, Ser Ryon Allyrion, in which case Delonne died or abdicated during the span of A Dance with Dragons, making Ryon the new Lord of Godsgrace.
