Game of Thrones Houses
Located in the Vale, the Arryns serve as Wardens of the East from their mountain stronghold, the Eyrie – a key defense against the violent clans that surround their home. The widowed Lysa Arryn retired here, keeping herself out of thr fray below. Lysa was murdered by her husband, Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish, shortly after their wedding. Young Robin Arryn now heads the household, under Littlefinger's guidance.
➲ The Eyrie
The Eyrie is an ancient castle and seat of House Arryn, one of the oldest lines of Andal nobility, within the Vale of Arryn. It is situated in the Mountains of the Moon astride the peak known as the Giant's Lance, several thousand feet above the valley below. Although small compared to the seats of other Great Houses in Westeros, the Eyrie is considered impregnable to attack. During winter years, the Arryns seek refuge against the cold at the base of the mountain in the Gates of the Moon.
➲ Vale of Arryn
The Vale of Arryn or the Vale is one of the constituent regions of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. It was formerly a sovereign nation ruled by the Kings of Mountain and Vale before Aegon's Conquest. The Mountains of the Moon surround the smaller Vale proper, although the valley's name is often applied to all of House Arryn's realm. The Vale is ruled by the Arryns from the castle known as the Eyrie. Notable houses of this region include Baelish, Belmore, Corbray, Egen, Grafton, Hersy, Hunter, Melcolm, Redfort, Royce, Templeton, and Waynwood. Bastards of noble origin raised in the Vale are given the surname Stone.
