House Tully sigil; a silver trout leaping on a striped field of blue and mud red

House Tully is one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms. They are an old noble house of First Men origin, dating back to the Age of Heroes. After his father bent the knee to the Andal conqueror Armistead Vance, Axel Tully was given land at the confluence of the Red Fork and the Tumblestone, where the Tullys constructed their seat of Riverrun.

The Tullys were never river kings, but they rose to prominence during Aegon's Conquest. Edmyn Tully, Lord of Riverrun, was the first of the river lords to desert King Harren Hoare, giving his support to Aegon the Conqueror. For this Aegon rewarded him with dominion over the riverlands as the Lord Paramount of the Trident. The Tullys have ruled the riverlands ever since, effectively dealing with a rebellion in 37 AC within their borders, an supporting King Maegor I Targaryen in his fight against his nephew, Aegon – although they eventually abandoned him in favor of Aegon's youngest brother, Jaehaerys. During the Dance of the Dragons, House Tully was divided on which side to support. The young Lord Kermit Tully, who inherited the rule over the riverlands late in the war, fought tirelessly for Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen and her son, King Aegon III, bringing House Tully to the height of their power. The Tullys featured prominently once again during Robert's Rebellion, when Lord Hoster Tully involved himself int he war by accepting the betrothals of his daughters, Catelyn and Lysa, to Lords Eddard Stark and Jon Arryn. A decade and a half later, Lord Hoster has grown bedridden, although he keeps the severity of his illness hidden. In his stead, his son and heir Edmure has taken on many of his duties, including the defense of Riverrun, by the time the War of the Five Kings begins. Read More...

Feature quote

  • “Sometimes, the best thing you can do is nothing. When I first came to Winterfell, I was hurt whenever Ned went to the godswood to sit beneath his heart tree. Part of his soul was in that tree, I knew, a part I would never share. Yet without that part, I soon realized, he would not have been Ned. Jeyne, child, you have wed the north, as I did... and in the north, the winters will come.” —Catelyn Tully[1]
