House Durrandon of Storm's End is a former Great House of Westeros. It ruled over the Stormlands until the War of Conquest. It also held much of the Riverlands until they lost them to House Hoare. The head of House Durrandon held the title of Storm King.

The House was founded by Durran Godsgrief, a legendary figure from the Age of Heroes. The last King of the Durrandon dynasty, Argilac the Arrogant was killed by Orys Baratheon during the Last Storm. Baratheon took Argilac's daughter as his wife, as well as his sigil and words, taking over the Stormlands as vassal of his half-brother Aegon the Conqueror. From that point on, House Durrandon became House Baratheon.

Shared Sigil

The shared heraldry with house Baratheon is explained in the books.

During the War of Conquest, Orys Baratheon, one of Aegon I Targaryen's fiercest generals, and rumored to be his bastard brother, slew Argilac the Arrogant, last of the Storm Kings, and married his daughter, Argella. Orys adopted the sigil and words of his wife's ancestral line, so creating House Baratheon of Storm's End, with his descendants having the blood of the Durrandons flowing in their veins

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Durrandon was the dynasty that claimed descent from Durran Godsgrief, the first Storm King and founder of Storm's End. King Arrec of House Durrandon was the last Storm King who ruled the Riverlands, conquered by his ancestors three hundred years before, losing it to the ironborn led by King Harwyn Hardhand of House Hoare.

House Durrandon seemingly left no other known surviving branches, and is officially extinct, but its female bloodline lived on in the Baratheon dynasty.

House Wensington from the stormlands includes three black stags in their sigil, suggesting that they may have some relation to the Durrandons or the Baratheons.
