House Strong of Harrenhal was a noble house in the Riverlands. Their seat was Harrenhal. Like the other families who have been in possession of Harrenhal, their family died out.[1] According to semi-canon sources they blazoned their arms with a tripartite pale blue, red, and green on white.[2]

Harrenhal has been in the possession of a number of noble families. The first after Aegon's Landing were House Qoherys, the last House Whent. In the books there is no order stated, only that the Lothstons and the Whents were the last two.[3] House Strong then must have been in the possession of the Harrenhal between 1 AL and 196 AL[4]

According to the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying, House Strong was the 4th house holding Harrenhal and ruled from Harrenhal during the reigns of Jaehaerys I and Rhaenyra Targaryen.
