History

Pre-First Era

One of the outstanding supporters of Daemon Blackfyre mentioned by Ser Eustace Osgrey was Redtusk, who could have been a Crakehall. Ser Roland Crakehall was one of the three members of the Kingsguard that escorted part of the royal family to Ashford. He and his sworn brothers took part in the trial of seven on the side of Prince Aerion. Roland was one of the three Kingsguard knights who lead the loyalist forces to thwart the Second Blackfyre Rebellion.

On their journey to Casterly Rock to broker the proposed marriages of Elia and Oberyn Martell with Jaime and Cersei Lannister, the Martell siblings and their mother stopped at Crakehall. Along with Merrett Frey, Jaime Lannister squired for Lord Sumner Crakehall against the Kingswood Brotherhood. Ser Elys Westerling and Lord Roland Crakehall were the first to enter the throne room of the Red Keep after the Kingslayer slew the Mad King.

Lord Lyle Crakehall has always been staunchly loyal to the Lannisters, even going as far as to not accept any disloyalty towards his liege lords from his household, since he was fostered at Casterly Rock during his youth. The Crakehalls fought in the Second Greyjoy Rebellion. Eon Crakehall commanded the House's cavalry and foot against ironborn raiders on the coastline whilst Lord Lyle fought in the Battle of Pyke; killing two infamous Ironborn warriors: Urron Saltcliffe and Dagur Irontooth.

For his bravery during the Second Greyjoy Rebellion and for defeating a notorious bandit group that had plagued the southern Westerlands since the end of the war, Lord Loren Lannister gave Eon the position of Captain of the City Watch at Lannisport and Casterly Rock. It was there he formed close relationships with not only Loren but with his children particularly Damon Lannister.
