House Brune of the Dyre Den is a noble house from the Dyre Den, which is located in Crackclaw Point in the crownlands. Neither its arms nor its motto have appeared in the books.
The Brunes of Brownhollow, a family of landed knights, are cousins to the Brunes of the Dyre Den. Archmaester Gyldayn considers the Brunes of Crackclaw to be half-wild.
The Brothers Brune were legendary champions who brought peace to Crackclaw Point.
Bernarr Brune was squire to Lord Alyn Stokeworth, the Hand of the King to King Aegon I and Aenys I Targaryen. When Lord Alyn was slain by the rebel Harren the Red, Bernarr cut down the outlaw and was rewarded with knighthood. Bernarr was later one of the champions in Maegor I Targaryen's trial of seven.
During the Dance of the Dragons, the Brunes declared for Rhaenyra Targaryen. Brune forces joined Lord Walys Mooton to liberate Rook's Rest from the control of Aegon II Targaryen's greens. Lord Brune marched from Maidenpool to King's Landing with Lord Manfryd Mooton, Lord Leowyn Corbray, and Ser Rennifer Crabb after Aegon's death.
Brunes were with Rhaegar Targaryen, Prince of Dragonstone, at the Battle of the Trident during Robert's Rebellion.
