Oakenshield Castle is the semi-canonical name[1] for the seat of House Hewett at Lord Hewett's Town on Oakenshield.

Layout

Sitting above the harbor of Lord Hewett's Town, the castle is small but strong. Its thick walls and studded oaken gates are reminiscent of the iron-and-oak sigil of House Hewett. The castle has green-roofed towers. Lord Hewett's bedchamber is accessible from the hall by a winding stone stair.[2]

During the taking of the Shields, the ironborn storm the castle and break and burn its great gates. After the battle, Victarion Greyjoy speaks with Lords Gorold Goodbrother, Dunstan Drumm, and Rodrik Harlaw in the castle's yard.[2]

Euron Greyjoy, King of the Isles and the North, holds his victory feast in the castle's hall. He makes the noble ladies, daughters, and daughters-in-law of Lord Humfrey Hewett serve the ironborn, while Lord Hewett is tied up and forced to watch. Euron humiliates the women by ordering them to disrobe and continue serving his men while nude.

Euron sleeps with Falia Flowers, Humfrey's bastard daughter and a former serving girl of the castle, in Humfrey's bedchamber.[2]
