"House Targaryen and House Velaryon have maintained a strong alliance for centuries. I can guarantee their support."
Tyrion Lannister reminds Daenerys Targaryen of the historic bond of House Targaryen and House Velaryon.[src]

House Velaryon of Driftmark is a vassal house that holds fealty to House Stark of Winterfell. They held fealty to House Baratheon of Dragonstone prior to the death of King Stannis Baratheon during the Battle of Winterfell. Their seat is Driftmark, an island in Blackwater Bay located west of Dragonstone.

House Velaryon's sigil is a white seahorse on a sea green background, and their words are "The Old, the True, the Brave".

Behind the scenes

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Velaryon is an ancient and proud house, with the blood of old Valyria in its veins. Some members were married into House Targaryen before and after the War of Conquest. Velaryons, like the Targaryens are born with the Valyrian features of silver-blond hair and purple eyes. They rule over Driftmark, the largest island of the Blackwater Bay, and are sworn to Dragonstone. Their arms depict a silver seahorse on sea green and their titles are Lord of the Tides and Master of Driftmark. Their words do not appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources they are "The Old, the True, the Brave".


  • Lord Monford Velaryon, Lord of the Tides and Master of Driftmark.
    • Monterys Velaryon, his son and heir, a young boy.
  • Aurane Waters, known as the Bastard of Driftmark. Bastard half-brother of Lord Monford.
