House Slynt of Harrenhal is a former ruler of Harrenhal. It was created during the reign of Joffrey I, when he named Janos Slynt Lord of Harrenhal for services rendered to the kingdom - namely, for betraying Eddard Stark during his attempt to take Joffrey into custody.[1] However, Slynt was forcibly sent to the Night's Watch, while Harrenhal was awarded to Petyr Baelish for securing the alliance between the Iron Throne and the Reach following the death of Renly Baratheon during the War of the Five Kings.

The blazon is a bloody spear, gold on a field of night-black.[1] The motto of the house is not mentioned.
