House Banefort is a noble house from Banefort in the westerlands, one of the main families sworn to Casterly Rock.
They blazon their shields with a hooded man, black on grey with within a fiery tressure.
The Baneforts were petty First Men kings of the Age of Heroes, claiming descent from the Hooded Man. The last Hooded King was Morgon Banefort, whose thralls were defeated after twenty years of war by Loreon I Lannister, King of the Rock.
House Banefort supported Tywin Lannister when he suppressed the Reyne-Tarbeck rebellion.
House Banefort is seated in Banefort, a keep located in the Westerlands. It is situated along the coast of the Sunset Sea north of the Crag, near the Iron Islands, and is only two days' sail from Pyke.
