House Gardener is an extinct house of the Reach. Their symbol was a green hand on white.


Garth Greenhand founded the line of the Kings of the Reach many thousands of years ago. Garth had many children, and half the houses of the Reach claim descent from him.

The Gardeners built the castle at Highgarden and ruled for many centuries until the invasion of Aegon the Conqueror. King Garse VII Gardener was killed by Argilac Durrendon during the Battle of Summerhall. other kingdoms fell before him, King Mern IX Gardener and King Loren Lannister of the Rock made alliance and brought a substantial host to face the Targaryen army, which they outnumbered five-to-one. The battle proceeded in their favour until Aegon unleashed all three of his dragons at once. The battlefield turned into a funeral pyre as thousands were slaughtered, Mern and his heirs amongst them.

With House Gardener extinguished, Mern's steward Harlen Tyrell surrendered control of Highgarden to Aegon. For this, Aegon promoted Harlen and made House Tyrell the new ruling house of the Reach, to the fury of House Florent, whose claim to Highgarden as closer kin to the Gardeners was superior.
