House Gaunt is a noble house in the Crownlands. Their lands are situated in the Crownlands heartlands, in between Byrch, Mallery, Pyle and Stokeworth. The family rules from the family seat situated in the northern part of their lands.
House Gaunt swears direct fealty to House Baratheon of King’s Landing. Not much is known about house Gaunt throughout the ages. The only known member is Ser Gwayne Gaunt who was a member of King Aerys II Targaryen's Kingsguard and died in 277 AC during the Defiance of Duskendale. He accompanied King Aerys II together with a small escort to Duskendale when the king sought to personally deal with the defiant lord Denys Darklyn. Upon arrival, however, the king was imprisoned and some of the king's escort were killed defending their king. Ser Gwayne was slain by Denys's master-at-arms, Ser Symon Hollard.
