Early history Edit
Ser Addison Hill, the Bastard of Cornfield, was a legendary brother of the Kingsguardduring the reign of Aegon I Targaryen, who eventually rose to the position of Lord Commander.
During the Dance of the Dragons, House Swyft was apparently a full-fledged noble house. Lord Swyft fought for the greens and died in the Battle by the Lakeshore.
Ser Harrold Swyft participated in the tourney at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC.
In the books Edit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Swyft is counted as a strong vassal and ally of House Lannister. However, Tyrion Lannister considers Ser Harys to be a chinless craven and lickspittle of little worth. Dorna is described as "equally chinless" as her father.
House Swyft joined their Lannister lieges in siding with King Aegon II Targaryen during the Dance of the Dragons. At this time they were a full noble house, but by the time the series begins they are a knightly house. How the Swyfts lost their lordship is unknown.
