"If I had obeyed my older brother earlier, we would've had the largest navy in Westeros with us as well, and our victory would've been swift."
―Ser Brynden Tully[src]

The Redwyne Fleet is a fleet of ships commanded by House Redwyne of the Arbor.

HistoryEdit

Had Brynden Tully married Bethany Redwyne as his brother, Lord Hoster Tully, intended, by the time of Robert's Rebellion, the rebels would've counted with the Redwyne fleet to aid them.[1]

Years later, the Redwyne Fleet took part in the Siege of Storm's End, preventing any supply from reaching the castle by sea.[2]

In the booksEdit

The Season 2 Blu-ray special features display the Redwyne sigil under a list of Renly Baratheon's supporters, but in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, House Redwyne doesn't declare for Renly. They wanted to, but during the early stages of the War of the Five Kings Queen Cersei Lannister holds the twin sons of Lord Paxter hostage at the royal court. After Renly dies, they join their Tyrell liege lords in aiding the Lannister army in the Battle of the Blackwater.

The practical result was that the Redwyne Fleet sat at anchor for much of the War of the Five Kings. It only became available to the Lannisters after the Battle of the Blackwater, but by that point Stannis's own navy was destroyed, and Robb Stark's threat was from land, not from the sea.

The addition of the Redwyne Fleet is a vital necessity to the Lannisters after the Battle of the Blackwater, during which most of the original Royal Fleet was functionally destroyed. Cersei worries, however, that this makes them even more reliant upon the Tyrells and their vassals from the Reach.

The Lannisters consider Stannis to be a bigger threat than the ironborn, so they begin to move the Redwyne Fleet east to blockade Stannis's remaining forces at Storm's End and Dragonstone. It takes some months to move the fleet, however, and they are in no dire hurry because Stannis is in no position to attack.
