House Wensington is a noble house from the stormlands. According to semi-canon sources, their arms are two golden trumpets crossed on blue, a gold chief with three black stags.[1][2] Their motto is "Sound The Charge".[3]


As the upper part of the Wensington coat of arms shows the stag of House Baratheon and House Durrandon, the house may have been founded by a Baratheon or Durrandon.
