I cobbled together these House Allegiance userboxes for the factions in the War of the Five Kings, so users can show who they're rooting for. I.e. I'm a staunch House Targaryen loyalist.

House-Targaryen-heraldry This user is sworn to
House Targaryen.

Simply add the appropriate template from the following list into your User Page:

{{user Targaryen}}
{{user Stark}}
{{user Lannister}}
{{user Greyjoy}}
{{user Tyrell}}
{{user NightsWatch}}

Note that "House Baratheon" has been broken up into four separate choices:

  • {{user Baratheon}} - generic "House Baratheon", really representing King Robert or earlier. With the outbreak of the War of the Five Kings, the house split into three separate factions:
  • {{user KingRenly}} - King Renly I. He didn't bother to form his own "cadet branch" but just claimed the whole house...but changed his personal heraldry to use the Tyrell gold/green color scheme in honor of his marriage alliance.
  • {{user BaratheonOfDragonStone}} - House Baratheon of Dragonstone, that is, King Stannis I's faction.
  • {{user BaratheonOfKingsLanding}} - the cuckolded result of Cersei's incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime, this is "King Joffrey's faction" which is essentially just an extension of House Lannister.

You can even make new House Allegiance userboxes by reverse-engineering these ones, if you have a particular allegiance to a specific House (Frey, Bolton, etc.)

Time to choose a side. Enjoy. --The Dragon Demands 02:47, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Technically, the targaryens do not participate in the War of the 5 Kings... And Joffrey and Stannis are different branches of Baratheons.--Gonzalo84 03:52, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
Indeed; more accurately its for "factions in the TV series, Game of Thrones so far. I.e. even the HBO official site lists "The Queen Across the Narrow Sea" etc.--The Dragon Demands 06:04, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
Good job, thank you. I've placed a link to this topic on the main page poll as it dovetails nicely with the choosing a house theme this week.--Opark 77 10:43, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
Enjoying them right now.Great job!

Well it looks like people are only choosing House Stark or House Lannister so far. Surprising, I thought we'd at least get some Renly fans, if not Night's Watch fans.--The Dragon Demands 18:58, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

Seems that way, but maybe it will change over time or as we grow. About the category thing, did you see my message on your talk page? Do you need a hand fixing that? Should we introduce something like "Category:User: House HOUSENAME"?--Opark 77 22:13, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
Need to get around to fixing that eventually, but right now I want to focus on digesting the Season 2 finale info. I'm surprised because I personally know a lot of people who outright prefer and root for Renly, or even the Tyrells after his death, to anyone else. Or even Tyrion fans supporting the lions.--The Dragon Demands 22:22, June 5, 2012 (UTC)
