"... Gulltown, the Vale's greatest port."
Petyr Baelish[src]

Gulltown is the largest city in the Vale of Arryn, the region controlled by House Arryn of the Eyrie. The city is located east of the Eyrie and south of Runestone on the east coast of the Vale.[1][2]

After the politically arranged married of Lord Jon Arryn, Lord of the Eyrie, upon the outbreak of Robert's Rebellion, Petyr Baelish quickly capitalised on her former affection for him and persuaded her to have him appointed as controller of customs at Gulltown, the Vale of Arryn's greatest port. He exploited the war to increased the port's income tenfold. Jon Arryn took notice of Baelish, a lowly lord from the Fingers, and when the new and profligate King Robert Baratheon needed a master of coin who could find gold where no one else could, Jon Arryn as the new Hand of the King selected Baelish.[3]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels Gulltown, is under the control of House Grafton.

A branch of House Arryn is established at Gulltown but has been shunned by the rest of the family for marrying with rich merchants.
