House Zalyne
Region Braavos

House Zalyne is a noble family of Braavos.


Uthero Zalyne was a Sealord of Braavos, in the century after the founding of Braavos.[1] He dispatched envoys of the Iron Bank to Valyria to pay settlements to the grandchildren of the owners of the ships Braavos' founders had seized - but not the value of the escaped slaves. The dragonlords turned out to have little interest in the descendants of slaves who had escaped a century before. Several years later, Uthero sent forth ships throughout the world, announcing the existence[N 1] of Braavos, and inviting the men of all nations to celebrate the 111th anniversary of the city's founding.[1] However, even after it unveiled itself, Braavos continued to be known as the Secret City,[3] with its exact location hidden for another two centuries.[2] The anniversary of the Uncloaking of Uthero is celebrated every year.[1]
