After the end of Game of Thrones, who owns "Heartsbane"?

Heartsbane was given to Jorah by Samwell Tarly because Ser Jorah's father cared for Tarly during his tenure as Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. As Ser Jorah died protecting his queen, who owns Heartsbane now?

Sam doesn't need it as he became a maester.

    We don't know, Sam can give it to any survivor I guess but it doesn't matter.

    @MightyBeard007 because no one knows. There is no answer given in the show.

    @Gabriel just because it's not explained in the show, doesn't stop it being a good question. One might actually argue that the best questions are ones such as this

    IMO the question has weight since throughout the series Heartsbane played a significant role in Sam's story as well as his relationship with other characters, however, since there's literally no evidence to support any kind of speculation as to who owns it now, in the end, the question falls on a moot point. +1 but also VTC.

In the HBO cannon the Valyrian steel swords ended up not mattering so it is not canonically addressed. We can only presume that Heartsbane suffered a similar fate to Widows Wail, buried under some rubble and forgotten. Who finds them after is unknown. Could be a random peasant.


I hate to cut and paste, but honestly I feel GOT wiki gives a good (and possibly the only) answer. Here it is.

Samwell, feeling guilty, tells Daenerys and Jorah Mormont that he "borrowed" Heartsbane. Samwell later gives his family's ancestral sword to Jorah (due to its Valyrian properties allowing it to kill White Walkers), who promises to wield it for the Battle of Winterfell to honor of his late father, Jeor Mormont, who Sam also saw as father figure. Towards the end of the Great Battle, Jorah fends off many wights in order to protect Daenerys, getting stabbed multiple times in the process and eventually succumbing to his wounds. The current owner of the Valyrian blade is unknown.

So honestly anyone or no one could have it.
