House Tully of Riverrun is one of the Great Houses of Westeros and the principle noble house of the Riverlands. In days of old, they bent the knee to House Hoare, but since Aegon's Conquest they have served as the paramount house of the Riverlands.

Their sigil is a silver trout leaping on a striped field of blue and mud red, and their house words are, "Family, Duty, Honor." Members of House Tully tend to have fair skin, red-brown hair, and blue eyes.

The current head of House Tully is Damion Tully.

History Edit

Third Century AC Edit

300-301 AC - The Second War of Conquest Edit

During the Second War of Conquest, The Riverlands was largely divided under the rule of House Baelish of Harrenhal, as an immediate aftermath of the War of the Five Kings. Edmure Tully, Lord of Riverrun, atainted of his seat, was freed by his uncle, the Blackfish, on a raid of a Lannister caravan intent on bringing him to Casterly Rock. Under him, the Riverlands began to unify against House Frey of the Twins, which had split into civil war upon Lord Walder's death.

Lord Edmure eventually reached out to Aegon Targaryen and was successful in being renamed to his seat, and aided Aegon in reconquering the Riverlands. The Battle of Oldstones was the last major battle in the Riverlands and marked the end of major conflict in the region for over a decade.

315 AC - The Year of False Banners Edit

With the rise of the Vulture King in the south, and as other rebellions sprung up throughout the Seven Kingdoms, Black Walder Frey made a bold move against House Tully, his ultimate motive to kill Lord Edmure and destabilise the Riverlands. Through clever use of deception and money, the Lord of House Frey brought three powerful bandit groups to fold, and employed them against the Lord of the Riverlands.

Three years of clever tracking and planning were all that was required to root out the bandit groups. Though Black Walder's complicity was never discovered, it was revealed by his son and heir shortly after his death a decade later.

326-329 AC - The Winter Wolves Edit

The Winter Wolves would be the last conflict Edmure Tully ever saw. The second winter after the Long Night proved to be a hard one, and the hardship above the Neck led to a pack of roving bandits that caused trouble across the North, and into the Riverlands, The Winter Wolves descended only slightly into the Riverlands before being stopped by Lord Frey and his host.

338-339 AC - The Fourth War of the Kraken Edit

House Tully played an important role in The Fourth War of the Kraken, participating in the latter half of the war after Lord Mallister, Frey and Blackwood failed to contain the Ironborn threat. During the Slaughter of Mudsgrave, a thousand Tully knights rode against seven-hundred assailants. It is said that Edmund Tully - not to be mistaken for Lord Edmure - commanded their forces to victory that day.

Later in the war, Lord Edmund once again brought the forces of the Riverlands to victory against the Ironborn during the Vengeance of Fairmarket and the Battle of the Blue Fork.

366 AC - The Half-Blood Incursion Edit

The vengeance of Regnar Twice-Crowned visited itself upon the Riverlands once more, but this time, House Tully and the Riverlands were more than prepared. After a few pitched battles, Lord Tully threw the Ironborn back into the sea during the Battle of Seagard - the only battle to have happened on Riverlands soil during the war.

392 - 394 AC - The Great Famine Edit

The Great Famine swept through the Riverlands and House Tully was no exception to the devastation that came from it. Though many in the Riverlands turned to banditry, the mass shortages left House Tully at the poorest it's been in centuries, and dramatically effected their standing in the eyes of the smallfolk, who believed they were hoarding all the food.

Recent History Edit

402 - 405 AC - The Scarlet Winter Edit

No sooner had war ended that winter struck Westeros; a harder winter than any most had known. Once again, the Riverlands suffered greatly, and too did House Tully. Berena Tully, under the advice of her uncle, Ser Clarence, drew up a formidable plan to deal with the threat, and colluded in no small amount with other Riverlander houses.

The Scarlet Winter proved unbeatable, however. Cold washed over the Riverlands, and cold washed over the hearts of those noble lords so eager to provide before. It was with no small amount of reluctance that Berena ordered the gates of Riverrun closed, and they would remain so for the better part of a year, as the gate itself had nearly frozen.

It was during this time that the Lady Bethany Blackwood, wife of Lord Brandon Tully, committed suicide. Though the motive remains a mystery yet, the circumstances of such are legendary. It is said that she climbed up to the battlements at midnight, and tossed herself from it's highest point, landing on the frozen sheets of ice below.

Her body shattered with the impact, and so too did the ice. She did not scream as she died, though her body was never seen again. After this event, Lord Brandon Tully resigned his position on the King's council.

When the Scarlet Winter came to an end, House Tully had suffered far beyond the death of a mother. The lands surrounding Riverrun were destroyed, and vast swaths of Smallfolk lay dead.

405 - 406 AC - The Aftermath Edit

Berena sought to make reforms in the time after the Winter, though these were in part due to the lack of manpower. In order to prevent such a terrible event from happening again, Clarence Tully began construction of new roadways that would allow for passage even during winter.

406 AC - The Death of Brandon Tully Edit

Late in the year 406, the aging and sickly Brandon Tully passed on in the night. Having resigned his position in the court two years earlier, Brandon had been seen by the best physicians the world had to offer, but even they could not stop his sickness.

Landon Rivers was legitimised as Landon Tully by King Aenar as Brandon's last dying wish, and he ascended to his position as Lord of Riverrun in the ninth moon of the year. He returned to Riverrun thereafter.
