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.
~ Margaery Tyrell

House Florent of Brightwater Keep is a one of the main noble houses sworn to House Tyrell of Highgarden. House Florent boasts a superior claim to Highgarden by their close blood ties to the House Gardener, the extinct Kings of the Reach. They are a supporting antagonistic faction in A Song of Ice and Fire, while in the TV series adaptation Game of Thrones some of its members do not appear so they becomes minor antagonistic faction.

History

Background

According to legend, the House of Florent comes from Florys the Fox, Garth Greenhand's daughter from the Age of Heroes.

A Clash of Kings

Melisandre, the red priesthood joined Stannis Baratheon's court, and his wife Selyse, a member of the House Florent, immediately became "brainwashed" by her taught and spread it throughout Dragonstone as an official religion. House Florent goes with House Tyrell on a spree in support of Stannis' brother Renly, and after Shadow Assassins kills Renly, florents side with Stannis.

Meanwhile, Lord Randyll Tarly orders the mass murder of many Florent soldiers so they don't go to Stannis' side. When the Battle of the Blackwater Bay comes, despite good strategy Stannis' army gets beaten by Loras Tyrell and Tywin Lannister.

A Storm of Swords

For the most part, all Florent soldiers pulled out alive after the Battle of Blackwater Bay, as did Stannis' Hand Lord Davos Seaworth. After Davos intends to kill Melisandre, knight of the House Florent and Selyse's uncle Axell Florent arrest him.

With the Florents still dispute House Tyrell's rights on Highgarden, Tywin Lannister punishes them by capturing Ser Erren Florent. When their leader Ser Alester decides it's good to marry Stannis' daughter Shireen to Tommen, Tywin's grandson in a show of reconciliation - Stannis and Davos dismiss it as a bad idea.

A Feast for Crows

After Alester Florent was burned at the stake "to make the wind good", the head of the house Florent became his son Alekyne Florent.

Ser Garlan Tyrell goes on a spree on Brightwater Keep, and florent sanctuary is defended by Ser Colin Florent, the outcome remains unknown.

A Dance With Dragons

When she arrives north, Stannis left Queen Selyse with her uncle Axell. Axell becomes the Queen's Hand. Axell and Selyse are temporarily settling in Castle Black.

In the TV series they are both dead already, but in the books they still live and it is not known what will happen next.
