Game of Thrones is undoubtedly the best HBO web series so far.

Apart from the surprising and underwhelming season 8, the show has done fairly well and has gained a massive global audience. GoT fans have always been curious about the slightly hidden details of the show.

If you are a GoT fan and wondering about the Game of Thrones sword names, we have compiled a list of the same.

Here’s a list of the famous swords used in Game Of Thrones:

1. Ice

Ice was a Valyrian steel sword and the heirloom of House Stark.

It was worn by the Lord of Winterfell. Later, it was disrespectfully used to behead Lord Ned Stark on the orders of Joffrey and was thereafter melted and reforged to make twin swords, Oathkeeper and Widow’s Wail upon orders from Tywin Lannister.

Ice has now been substituted with Jon’s Sword Longclaw, which earlier belonged to House Mormont.

2. Longclaw

Longclaw is a Valyrian steel sword that had been the ancestral weapon of House Mormont. Lord Jeor Mormont passed the legacy to his son and heir Ser Jorah Mormont, but Ser Jorah left the sword when he was exiled and the sword returned to Ser Jeor.

As Commander of the Night’s watch, Ser Jeor gave the sword to Jon Snow as a reward for saving his life from a wight.

Its bear pommel was also replaced with a wolf, the sigil of House Stark. Since then, the sword remains with Jon.


3. Needle

The needle is a thin sword wielded by Arya Stark, which was a gift to her from her half-brother(not really, but they don’t know yet) Jon Snow.

He says it is skinny like her and gives her the advice to “Stick them with the pointy end”.

It suits Arya’s personality well, as both are well apt for the “Water Dance” style of fencing, popular in Braavos.

4. Oathkeeper

Oathkeeper is one of the two Valyrian steel swords forged from Ice, the ancestral sword of House Stark on the orders of Tywin Lannister.

It was initially given to Jaime Lannister as an heirloom of the House. However, he later gave it to Brienne of Tarth to protect Sansa Stark.

5. Widow’s Wail

This is the sister sword of the Oathkeeper, both forged from Ned Stark’s sword Ice.

It was given by Tywin Lannister as a wedding gift to his grandson Joffrey Baratheon. Long gone since Joffrey’s death, it was again seen worn by Jaime Lannister after he returned from Riverlands.

6. Lightbringer

Lightbringer is the sword of Stannis Baratheon, which he pulled out of the fire created by burning statues of the Seven.

After Stannis’s death, it is unknown as to what became of it. Prophecy has it that Lightbringer will be pulled out of the fire by the Lord’s Chosen, the Prince that was promised to bring an end to the Night King.

7. Blackfyre

During the Targaryen conquest of Seven Kingdoms, Blackfyre was carried by its original owner Aegon I Targaryen.

This sword made of Valyrian steel was handed over by King Aegon IV to his bastard son Daemon.

However, this sword was lost at the end of the Blackfyre Rebellion that took place between Daemon Blackfyre and King Daeron II Targaryen (The lawful son of King Aegon IV).


8. Brightroar

Originally belonging to the King of the Rock, Tommen II Lannister, this sword made of pure Valyrian steel was an important jewel to the House Lannister.

The status of Brightroar is lost since Tommen II Lannister took it with himself to Valyria. The disappearance of Brightroar (being made from Valyrian steel) prompted Tywin Lannister to forge the Greatsword of House Stark, Ice into two more swords.

9. Dark Sister

Visenya Targaryen owned the Dark Sister. She used it in the War of Conquest.

The sword, just like Blackfyre is missing since the Blackfyre’s Rebellion.

The Dark Sister can be observed being mentioned in Season 2 where Arya Start discusses impresses Tywin Lannister with her knowledge of the fact that Visenya Targaryen was the one to wield the Valyrian sword, the Dark Sister.

10. Dawn

Dawn is one of the most famous swords in Westeros. The Dornish founder of House Dayne followed a falling star and used that metal to forge Dawn.

Ser Arthur Dayne of the Kingsguard bore Dawn during the reign of the Mad King.

After Robert Baratheon’s coronation, Eddard Stark returned Dawn to Starfall (The castle built by the Dornish founder where the falling star hit the ground).

11. Forrester Greatsword

This valuable sword has been the prized possession of House Forrester.

Handed down from Gregor Forrester to Ethan Forrester to Rodrik Forrester to Asher Forrester, this sword has protected the House Forrester for long.

However, the latest holder of the Forrester Greatsword is unknown. After Forresters’ defeat at Ironrath, the blade probably got into the hands of Whitehills.

Forrester Greatsword
