House Tallhart of Torrhen's Square is a vassal house that holds fealty to House Stark of Winterfell. House Tallhart's lands are south-west of Winterfell. Their seat is Torrhen's Square, a formidable stone keep and a surrounding town protected by stone walls thirty feet high.[1]


Season 2

Theon Greyjoy consults with Dagmer how he can prove himself as a true iron islander. Theon mentions that Torrhen's Square lies near to the Stony Shore; Dagmer says that the seat of House Tallhart is more worthy prize than raiding fishermen's villages.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Tallhart is a masterly house sworn to the Starks of Winterfell as Masters of Torrhen's Square. According to a semi-canon source, House Tallhart descends from the First Men.

In the novels, House Tallhart's heraldry consists of three green sentinel trees on a brown background. The TV series changed this to one green sentinel tree, on a white background.
