House Grandison of Grandview is a noble house from Grandview in the Stormlands. It blazons its arms with a black sleeping lion on yellow.[2][3] According to semi-canon sources, their words are "Rouse Me Not".[4]


Ser Harlan Grandison was a former knight of the Kingsguard. After dying in his sleep, he was replaced in the Kingsguard by Ser Jaime Lannister.[2]

Along with Lord Cafferen, Lord Grandison was captured by Lord Robert Baratheon at the battles at Summerhall during Robert's Rebellion. Robert then managed to turn the two Targaryen loyalists into allies. Lord Grandison was wounded at the battle of the Trident fighting for Robert, and died of his wounds a year later.[5]

The elderly Lord Hugh Grandison was among the possible matches offered to Princess Arianne Martell.[6]
