House Roxton of the Ring is a noble house from the Ring in the Reach. According to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms with a saltire of interlocked golden rings, upon a sky blue field.[2] Their words are not known. They possess a Valyrian steel sword called Orphan-Maker.[3][4]


The Roxtons trace their ancestry back to Andal adventurers given lands and wives by the Three Sage Kings of House Gardener during the coming of the Andals to the Reach.[1]

Ser Lorence Roxton was a victor in the War for the White Cloaks.[5]

Ser Jon Roxton wielded the ancient Valyrian sword Orphan-Maker during the Dance of the Dragons.[3] After killing Hugh Hammer, Bold Jon was slain at the Second Battle of Tumbleton.[6]
