House Oldflowers is a minor house of The Reach situated along the lower Mander River below Highgarden and near the tributary with a river starting in Horn Hill. According to semi-canon sources they blazon their arms with ten white hands on green, 4-3-2-1, beneath a red bend sinister. Their sigil (a bend sinister is often associated with bastardy) and the "flowers" part of their name (the name given to bastards in the Reach) both hint that the Oldflowers may descend from a bastard of House Gardener.

Inspiration

La Mothe-Chandeniers, Vienne, France 2011 By Linda Vanysacker - Van den Mooter

La Mothe-Chandeniers, Vienne, France. Inspiration for Oldflowers Keep.

Oldflowers was originally planned to be the ex-seat of House Manderly, but, with the publication of A World of Ice and Fire new information was discovered about the old Manderly seat so there was a change in plans. The keep and town was inspired by medieval French architecture, like many houses in the Reach. But the latest version of the castle was inspired by a sketch of the chateau of La Mothe-Chandeniers, Viennes, France. (See Application)
