House Redwyne is sworn to House Tyrell. Their seat is the Arbor. Wines of the Arbor are famed throughout Westeros; as a result their sigil is the grape on a purple field. They provide a significant portion of the Tyrells' fleet. Redwyne is a powerful house with strong ties to the Tyrells. Lady Olenna is the mother of the current Lord Tyrell, while Lord Mace's sister is married to Lord Paxter Redwyne.
Lord of the Arbor, and member of the Small Council. During the War of the Usurper, Paxter kept his loyalty to House Targaryen, besieging Storm's End for nearly a year. After the death of King Aerys II, he surrendered his forces to troops loyal to King Robert. His wife is Mina Tyrell, sister of Lord Mace Tyrell, and daughter of the Queen of Thorns, Olenna Redwyne.
Horas and Hobber Redwyne
Sons of Lord Paxter Redwyne by his wife Mina Tyrell, they are nicknamed "Horror" and "Slobber" and are grossly overweight.
They were held hostage at King's Landing by Cersei Lannister in order to prevent House Redwyne form joining forces with Renly Baratheon. They were released after Mace Tyrell swore allegiance to Joffrey Baratheon.
Born Olenna Redwyne, she married Lord Luthor Tyrell, the late lord of Highgarden. Called the "Queen of Thorns," she was the mother of Lord Mace Tyrell of Highgarden as well as two daughters, Janna and Mina, married to Lord Paxter Redwyne. She convinced Sansa Stark to confide in her about King Joffrey's vicious nature. Afterwards, to protect her granddaughter, she conspired with Petyr Baelish to poison King Joffrey.
