House Glover of Deepwood Motte

A silver fist on scarlet

General Information

Deepwood Motte is a wooden motte-and-bailey castle situated northwest of Winterfell in the very northern edge of the wolfswood near tidal flats of the Bay of Ice. Galbart Glover rules the house, but being unwed and without children, his brother Robett stands as his heir. Robett’s wife is Lady Sybelle of House Locke and he has two children by her, his heir Gawen and his daughter Erena.

Among the companions of Brandon Stark who were killed by the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen, was Ethan Glover. His father may have been killed as well, and the exact relations of Ethan Glover and his father to Robett and Galbart are unknown. In all probability, Ethan Glover was the elder sibling and heir of the house.
