General Information

Their motto is, “Rouse Me Not.” The only members of the house to be mentioned are old Ser Harlan Grandison, a knight of the Kingsguard who died in his sleep and was replaced by Ser Jaime Lannister, and a dead Lord Grandison. Lord Grandison, along with Lords Fell and Cafferen, planned to remain loyal to King Aerys and were going to join forces to attack Lord Robert. Robert, catching wind of it, raced to the designated place of Summerhall and defeated each army in turn as it came up. Lord Grandison was captured and soon became Robert’s man. He fought throughout the war for Robert and died a year after of a wound he took at the Trident.
