House Broom is a noble house from the westerlands. It is one of the principal houses sworn to House Lannister.[2] It is unknown if it is the same family as House Broome.

The Brooms are an ancient line, dating back to the days of the First Men.[4]

  1. The text in the Westerlands section of TWOIAF implies that the mentioned First Men houses are all founded in the Dawn Age but does not use the term Dawn Age, instead it says Golden Age which could be meant to cover the Dawn Age and Age heroes together.
