A beautiful, well-done piece of jewerly, who suits very well the Redwyne`s sigil. House Redwyne of the Arbor is a noble house sworn to Highgarden. Their seat is the Arbor, an island south of the Whispering Sound. Redwyne is a powerful house with strong ties to the Tyrells, and provides a significant portion of the fleet of the Reach, owning 200 warships and five times as many merchant vessels.
Their blazon is a burgundy grape cluster on blue, symbolizing the famed wines of the Arbor. The motto has not been mentioned in the books.
The current Lord of the Arbor, Paxter Redwyne, is married to his cousin, Mina Tyrell, the sister of his liege, Lord Mace Tyrell. His elderly aunt, Olenna Redwyne, the „Queen of Thorns”, is the mother of Mace and Mina, and is a schemer par excellence. Besides their marital ties, Lady Olenna’s influence over House Tyrell gives the Redwynes a strong voice in the Reach. During the Dance of the Dragons, the Arbor declared for the greens.
Bethany Redwyne was to have married Brynden Tully, but he refused the match and she was wed to Lord Mathis Rowan instead. On the journey to Casterly Rock for the brokerage of their marriages, Prince Oberyn and Princess Elia Martell visited the Arbor.
During the War of the Usurper, Lord Paxter Redwyne joined his cousin-goodbrother, Mace Tyrell, in staying loyal to King Aerys II Targaryen. His main contribution to the war was the naval blockade of Storm’s End during Mace’s siege, ferrying men across Blackwater Bay and blockading Shipbreaker Bay.
Paxter’s twin sons, Horas and Hobber, teased and humiliated Samwell Tarly when he was sent to the Arbor as a page.
