List of A Song of Ice and Fire Characters - House Tully, Retainers, and Bannermen

House Tully, Retainers, and Bannermen

House Tully is one of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms and is the principal house in the Riverlands. Its seat is at Riverrun. Its coat of arms displays a leaping silver trout on a field of rippling blue and red stripes, and its words are Family, Duty, Honor. When House Targaryen invaded Westeros, House Tully was the first to welcome the invaders. In return, the Targaryens named House Tully the Lords Paramount of the Trident, alternately titled Lords Paramount of the Riverlands.

At the start of the series, Lord Hoster Tully is head of the family. His two daughters married into other Great Houses; Catelyn into House Stark, and Lysa into House Arryn. As Hoster has recently fallen ill, his only son Edmure commands in his stead. Hoster's brother Brynden accompanied Lysa to the Vale after her wedding.

Famous quotes containing the word house:

    I who was a house full of bowel movement,
    I who was a defaced altar,
    I who wanted to crawl toward God
    could not move nor eat bread.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
