A Sword of the Morning gripping the pommel of Dawn

The Sword of the Morning is a title of House Dayne bestowed on the knight who bears the ancestral greatsword Dawn. Only a knight of House Dayne who is deemed worthy can carry it.[1] For this reason, the Swords of the Morning are all famous throughout the Seven Kingdoms.[2] If there is no Dayne knight considered worthy, the title lies dormant. The last to bear the title was Ser Arthur Dayne, a famed knight of the Kingsguard.
