House Cole is a former noble house from the stormlands. They blazoned their arms with ten black pellets on scarlet.[1][2]


House Cole appears to be a vassal of House Dondarrion, in the Dornish Marches.

The greatest member of the house was Ser Criston Cole, the son of the steward at Blackhaven, the seat of House Dondarrion.[3] Criston became the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard under Viserys I Targaryen. Although Viserys had wanted his successor to be Rhaenyra Targaryen, Criston placed Aegon II Targaryen on the Iron Throne and began the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons. For that Criston was named the Kingmaker.[1]
