Political Relations

House Harlaw has more ties to mainland Westeros than most houses of the Iron Isles, having intermarried with House Serrett of the Westerlands, in particular.

Ser Harras Harlaw (born of a Harlaw and a Serrett) is one of a tiny handful of Ironborn to pursue knighthood, and is known to compete at the occasional tournament. He made a surprise appearance at the tourney at Stonebridge in July 288, which caused something of a stir. He unseated Ser Anton Valentin in two passes, and was then himself unseated by Ser Kevan Tierney in three.
