House Durrandon of Storm's End was the ruling house of the Kingdom of the Storm before the War of Conquest. Its founder was Durran Godsgrief, who built Storm's End. The sigil of House Durrandon was a black crowned stag on a golden field, which is now used by House Baratheon, one of its cadet brances through the female line.

History Edit

House Durrandon was founded during the Age of Heroes, by King Durran "Godsgrief", who is praised today as a legendary hero. The Durrandon dynasty ruled the modern-day Stormlands and much of the Riverlands, which they conquered in a war with House Teague.

The Kingdom of the Reach, ruled by the Gardener dynasty, gnawed at the Storm's territory from the west, while the Dornish Martell dynasty knocked at Durrandon's door from the south. The Kingdom of the Isles and Rivers led by King Harren the Black had conquered the Trident and the lands north of the Blackwater Rush from the Storm. King Argilac the Arrogant, however, managed to stop this great age of depression on his kingdom. But, then came Aegon, his sisters, and their dragons to conquer Westeros.

When the conquest fell upon the seven kingdoms that ruled Westeros respectively, Orys Baratheon, Aegon's right-hand-man and rumored paternal bastard half-brother, slew Argilac during the Last Storm. He married Argilac's daughter, Argella, and adopted the sigil and words of his wife's house, and creating House Baratheon, with the next generations of Baratheons had strong Durrandon blood in their veins.
