Rumors have been flying out of King’s Landing and the most powerful families in Westeros can smell opportunity. The Iron Throne is there for the taking. The Seven Kingdoms are about to be engulfed by a new war, The War of the Five Kings, and things are going to get messy.
I have no idea how this cluster of a crown grab is going to play out. There’s one thing I do know: If you are going to lead your house into battle, you can’t just throw a peacock with a top hat up on a flag and expect to win. No, your house banner needs to command respect from your men, strike fear in your enemies, and most importantly, your sigil needs to look awesome on a t-shirt.
These awesome Game of Thrones tees and many more are available at the HBO Store.
The richest in the Seven Kingdoms and currently holding the throne by the questionable right of Joffrey. Their motto is “Hear Me Roar!,” but are better known for the unofficial motto, “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts.” The house is represented by a golden lion with red background.
The proud rulers of the North. This is a family that understands the weather patterns better than most with words of “Winter Is Coming.” Their sigil is a grey direwolf running across white.
Definitely the coolest crest with a red three-headed dragon on black. It’s no wonder they ruled Westeros for nearly 300 years. They got kinda down on their luck after the dragon reign, but look for a comeback tour if Daenerys can raise up those babies.
Robert Baratheon ruled as King before being gutted by a wild boar and passing the throne to his “son” Joffrey. Now, his two brothers each want the throne and have modified the original stag on yellow sigil. Renly with the green background and Stannis with the fire. See below:
The rulers of the tough and tumble Iron Islands. These pirates don’t sow. They just float around and take whatever they can with an awesome kraken logo.
One of the Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms with the not-so-great silver trout crest. They never ruled as kings and it’s no wonder waving around a fish banner like that.
The main noble house in the Vale. They sport a moon and falcon on blue and fly “As High As Honor.”
Wardens of the South and very wealthy(only surpassed by the Lannisters). Not a very menacing coat of arms with a rose in the middle, but maybe that’s part of their strategy.
Orange with a sun being pierced by a spear. I don’t know much about this family yet, except that they rule over the peninsula of Dorne and their words are “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.”
