House Vypren is a noble house of the riverlands. Neither their arms nor their motto has appeared in the books. According to semi-canon sources, they blazon their arms with a black toad on white lily pad, on green.[2]


During the coming of the Andals to the riverlands, the Andal warlord Vorian Vypren and his knights were held at bay at the Widow's Ford for a day and a night by three sons of Lord Darry before finally slaying the Darrys.[1]

Lord Vypren supported Harwyn Hardhand, King of the Iron Islands, when he warred against the Storm King Arrec Durrandon.[1]

Lady Sabitha Vypren was married to the gallant Lord Forrest Frey[3] and had at least one son with him.[4] Her father and brothers led the Vyprens in supporting the blacks against the greens during the Dance of the Dragons, as did the widowed Sabitha herself with House Frey.[5]
