"House Florent, who had actual blood ties to the Gardeners. They whinge about their ancient rights to Highgarden every once in a while; and now that their daughter is married to Stannis Baratheon, about their rights to all of Westeros, too. Apparently, putting a fox on your banners doesn't impart a fox's wiles."
House Florent of Brightwater Keep is a vassal house that holds fealty to House Tyrell of Highgarden. Their seat is Brightwater Keep. The head of the house holds the title of Lord of Brightwater Keep. The Florent sigil is a red gold fox's head on an ermine background.
House Florent had close ties to House Gardener when they were the Kings of the Reach prior to the Wars of Conquest. House Tyrell were installed as Wardens of the South after King Mern Gardener was killed fighting Aegon the Conqueror. House Florent resents the elevation of House Tyrell and believe they have a more valid claim to the position. They fought for Stannis Baratheon in the War of the Five Kings as Selyse Florent was the wife of Stannis.
The Florent sigil is present in the Tourney of the Hand.
House Florent follows their liege lords, House Tyrell, in pledging support to Renly Baratheon's claim to the Iron Throne. Following the death of Renly, however, the Florents do not follow their Tyrell overlords and instead go over to Stannis, as Selyse Florent is the wife of Stannis. They participate in the Battle of the Blackwater.
A raven sends a message to Dragonstone inviting Stannis Baratheon to Rylene Florent's nameday celebration. Davos Seaworth reads the message aloud to Shireen Baratheon and notes that her father probably will not be going to her cousin's party.
Melisandre burns Lord Axell Florent to death for refusing to renounce the Seven. He pleads to his sister and her husband for mercy, which they do not give.
Shireen is burned as a sacrifice to help Stannis take Winterfell, and Selyse hangs herself over grief of her daughter's death.
