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 imprisoned by the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen, was Ethan Glover, who was Brandon’s squire and was the only one of them to survive. He would later die at the tower of Joy. His relationship to Galbart and Robett Glover is unknown, but it is likely he was an elder sibling.
