House Lychester is a noble house the riverlands. They own a small square keep. According to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms with orange and white gyronny, a black talon.[1]


In 42 AC during the Faith Militant uprising, Lord Jon Lychester was among the pious lords who fought King Maegor I Targaryen in the battle at the Great Fork of the Blackwater.[2] The following year, Visenya Targaryen mounted Vhagar to set aflame several keeps and castles, including the seat of House Lychester.[2]

Lord Lymond Lychester took six wounds defending a bridge from Ser Maynard. All of Lymond's sons died during Robert's Rebellion, some fighting with the Targaryens, some with Lord Robert Baratheon.[3]
