House Costayne of Three Towers is a noble house from Three Towers in the Reach, sworn to the Hightowers.[1] Three Towers is located on the southern coast of the Whispering Sound.[2]

They blazon their shield with quartered: a silver chalice on black, a black rose on gold.[3][4] Their words do not appear in the text.


Lord Owen Costayne of Three Towers declared for Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons, going against his Hightower overlords. He was mortally wounded by Ser Jon Roxton's Valyrian steel black blade, Orphan-Maker, during the Battle on the Honeywine.[5]

Lord Costayne fought for the Blackfyres during the Blackfyre Rebellion. The Costayne force that participated in the Battle of the Redgrass Field fought on the left of Daemon Blackfyre's host. After becoming Lord of Three Towers in his own right, his son participated in Lord Ambrose Butterwell's wedding festivities. The new Lord Costayne was married to the daughter of Lord Ambrose by his first wife. Lord Costayne was defeated at the Whitewalls Tourney by Ser Glendon Flowers. After the Second Blackfyre Rebellion was put down, a man in service to Lord Vyrwel claimed to have been one of Brynden Rivers' spies. He was promptly killed by a man in service to Lord Costayne.[citation needed]

Long Tom Costayne served in the Kingsguard for sixty years.[citation needed]

Ser Tommen Costayne participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC.[6]
