House Roote of Lord Harroway's Town is a noble house from Harroway in the riverlands. According to semi-canon sources, they blazon their arms with a two-headed horse, brown, on a field of wavy green and green. They may have taken their sigil from Old King Andahar, as the ferry boat at Harroway is referred to as the king's two-headed water horse.
House Roote had acquired Lord Harroway's Town by the start of the Dance of the Dragons, and they supported Rhaenyra Targaryen during the civil war. The Rootes helped to capture Stone Hedge, but Ser Criston Cole later defeated Lord Roote, Lord Darry, and Ser Oswald Wode along the Gods Eye and Prince Aemond Targaryen burned Harroway with Vhagar.
