House Forrester is a noble house from the wolfswood in the North. It is sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte.[1]

The Forresters are featured in Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series and as of such, most information known about the house comes from this game. In the game, their seat is Ironrath, and their words are "Iron from Ice". They control the majority of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.[2]


Asha Greyjoy thinks of House Forrester as a clan.[1]
