House Goodbrother of Hammerhorn is a noble house from the Iron Islands. They are one of the most powerful houses from Great Wyk, the largest of the islands, and are one of House Greyjoy's primary bannermen. Their keep of Hammerhorn is inland, in the Hardstone Hills, their wealth not coming from the Sunset Sea but from their mines.
Their blazon is a gold-banded black warhorn on red. Their motto has not appeared in the books.
House Goodbrother has at least three cadet branches on Great Wyk, the Goodbrothers of Corpse Lake, the Goodbrothers of Crow Spike Keep, and the Goodbrothers of Downdelving. Other branches include the Goodbrothers of Shatterstone on Old Wyk and the Goodbrothers of Orkmont.
Unlike most great houses of the Iron Islands, the Goodbrothers claim descent from the Grey King's loyal eldest brother.
When the kingsmoot was used to choose the High King of the Iron Islands, only House Greyiron had more kings chosen than the Goodbrothers. Urrathon IV Goodbrother was a high king known as "Badbrother" during the Age of Heroes.
