Riverrun is the former seat of House Tully, who continue to hold it in defiance of the Iron Throne and its new lawful rulers, House Frey. It is a large castle located in the central-western part of the Riverlands. It sits at the point where the Red Fork of the Trident River is joined by its major tributary, the Tumblestone River flowing out of the west. In times of danger, sluice gates can be opened to flood a channel cut to the west of the castle, turning Riverrun into an island. Its walls rise sheer from the waters and its towers command the opposite shores, making assaulting it almost impossible without huge casualties.
Notable residents of the castleEdit
- Lord Hoster Tully, the late Lord of Riverrun and Lord Paramount of the Riverlands.
- Lady Minisa Whent, his wife, who died many years ago in childbirth.
- Lady Catelyn Tully, his eldest daughter, widow of Lord Eddard Stark. Catelyn was, along with her son Robb Stark and many other North men, slain at The Twins during the wedding ceremony of her brother Edmure to Roslin Frey.
- Lady Lysa Tully, his second daughter, widow of Lord Jon Arryn and Lady Regent of the Vale. Currently at the Eyrie.
- Lord Edmure Tully, the last Tully Lord of Riverrun and Lord Paramount of the Riverlands. Now a hostage of House Frey.
- Ser Brynden Tully, known as "the Blackfish", Lord Hoster's brother.

Riverrun has been in the possession of House Tully for a thousand years. It became the seat of rule over the region when House Tully rebelled against the ironborn occupiers and allied with Aegon the Conqueror three centuries ago.
