House Fossoway of Cider Hall is a vassal house from the Reach that holds fealty to House Tyrell of Highgarden. Their seat is Cider Hall and their sigil is a red apple on a gold field.


Early History[]

Two members of House Fossoway, Ser Steffon Fossoway and newly knighted Ser Raymun Fossoway, fought on opposite sides in the Trial by seven of Duncan the Tall.

In the books[]

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Fossoway of Cider Hall is commonly referred as the red-apple Fossoways, to differentiate them from the other branch of the house, the "green apple" Fossoways of New Barrel, who split from the red apples in 208 AC. Their motto is not mentioned in the books; according to semi-canon sources, it is "A Taste of Glory".

After Stannis's defeat at the Battle of the Blackwater, they bend the knee to Joffrey.
