House Wensington is a noble house from the Stormlands. According to semi-canon sources, their arms are two golden trumpets crossed on blue, a gold chief with three black stags.[1] Their motto is "Sound The Charge".

History

As (legalized) bastards often invert the arms of their fathers. As the upper part of the Wenstington coat of arms is similar to the inverted coat of arms of House Baratheon, the house may have been founded by a Baratheon bastard.

Now members of the house are named but their banners have been seen at the Wall during Stannis Baratheon expedition to help the Night's Watch.[2] This means that the house stayed faithful to Stannis after his defeat at the Blackwater Bay.
