Raventree Hall is a castle in the Riverlands. It is the seat of House Blackwood, a vassal house holding fealty to House Tully of Riverrun. The castle is located just north of Riverrun, near the coast of Ironman's Bay.
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels Raventree Hall is ancient, dating back to the days of the First Men. The walls are covered in moss, with a tower at each angle in the wall. Two huge, square towers flank the gate. Inside the walls are an outer ward, a large timber keep and a godswood. The godswood contains a single weirwood of massive size. Hundreds of ravens roost on the dead weirwood, which is said to have been poisoned by the Brackens, the Blackwoods' ancestral foes.
Following the Red Wedding, the yielding of most of the Riverlords and recently Riverrun, Raventree Hall is last castle in the Riverlands refusing to yield to the Lannisters. Currently a force of the Brackens, who chose to submit to the Iron Throne, is besieging it.
After resolving the siege of Riverrun, Jaime travels to Raventree. He persuades Lord Tytos Blackwood, non-violently, to surrender.
