House Rykker COA

Coat of arms of House Rykker

House Rykker of Duskendale is a noble house from Crownlands. They are the rulers of the Dun Fort, located in large coastal town named Duskendale, and vassals of House Targaryen of Queen's Landing. Their sigil is two black warhammers crossed on a white saltire on blue.

History Edit

The castle of the Dun Fort was granted to Rykkers, following the Defiance of Duskendale, by King Aerys II Targaryen. They succeeded House Darklyn, former lords of Duskendale, who had been exterminated for their crimes against the crown.

In the Robert's Rebellion the Rykkers stood alongside their liege lord, King Aerys II Targaryen. Their major force marched with Rhaegar Targaryen to the Trident, and lost; however, lord Renfred Rykker was later pardoned by King Robert Baratheon. But ser Jaremy, his brother, wasn't this lucky. He actively engaged in defence of King's Landing, for which lord Tywin had him banished to the Wall.

During the War of the Five Kings, the Rykkers were loyal to House Baratheon of King's Landing. Fortunately, only one major battle took place near Duskendale, where they fought alongside the Tarlys and the Cleganes. Large part of their mounted force then went to pursue scattered northern forces.

In the late war, during the Aegon's siege of the King's Landing, lord Renfred's foot was part of the small defending force in the city. However, soon after the fall of the Mud Gate, his men-at-arms were crushed by the Aegon's vanguard and lord himself was personally slain by Jon Connington.
