House Blacktyde

House Blacktyde is a large Gothic house that lives out of the Iron Islands island of Blacktyde which was named after their household within their personal seat of Blacktyde Hold. House Blacktyde is a vassal house of the ruling house of the Iron Islands in House Greyjoy.

The motto of House Blacktyde is "The north endures the harshes of winters, and the greatest of summers" and this has to do with the northern islands feeling as if they are a different entity to the more southern islands. They blazon their arms with vairy green and black.

House Blacktyde came to live on the island of Blacktyde during the Great Migration and they dominated the island along with much of the northern half of the Iron Islands for a long period of time. This came to an end when the longships of House Greyjoy arrived on the northern islands after defeating House Codd. House Blacktyde would resist House Greyjoy for some time but village by village they were pushed back until finally with their capital threatened they surrendered and became a member of the Iron Islands. Under the banner of the Iron Islands House Blacktyde has become one of the most powerful of the houses, and this has been achieved through the fact that they have controlled the northern waters for many years and also have taken over land on the mainland east of their islands of which give them much booty, and supplies.
