House Merryweather of Longtable

A golden horn of plenty spilling out apples, carrots, plums, onions, leeks, turnips, and fruits of many colors on a white field bordered in gold

General Information

Their motto is, “Behold Our Bounty.” A rich Lord Merryweather, famous for his feasts and frolics, was Aerys’s Hand after Tywin Lannister, but his failure to deal with Robert Baratheon’s uprising led to his being stripped of lands and titles and sent into exile, where he died. Longtable and some of the family lands were restored by Robert, but the family’s wealth was much reduced. Lord Orton Merryweather, grandson to Aerys’s Hand, is the current lord of the house and is wed to Taena of Myr. They have one son, Russell.
