Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Dawn, Day, and Night. The seven Courts of Prythian, each ruled by a High Lord, all of them deadly in their own way.

The Day Court is one of the seven courts of Prythian, and one of the three solar courts.


The Day Court is bordered to the north by the Night Court, and to the south by the Dawn Court.


When Prythian was formed, the land was split into seven Courts, the Day Court being one of them.

The High Lord of the Day Court, Helion Spell-Cleaver, is a dark-skinned man clothed in white and gold colors. He is also Lucien Vanserra's biological father from an affair he had with the Lady of the Autumn Court hundreds of years before the start of A Court of Thorns and Roses.

When Amarantha began to frequent the Courts of Prythian, the Day Court was no exception, and the High Lord lost much of his powers because of her. This court was one of the three courts, along with the Winter Court and the Summer Court, to rebel against Amarantha's control over Prythian, so his then High Lord was assassinated and another was put in his place.

In A Court of Thorns and Roses, the High Lord of the Day Court watched Feyre Archeron's trials. When Feyre freed Tamlin and the Spring Court from Amarantha's curse and Amarantha killed her, the other Courts were also freed. Helion bestowed a piece of magic to heal Feyre and turn her into High Fae.

In A Court of Mist and Fury, Rhysand tells Feyre that the Day Court had a thousand libraries that were personally looted by Amarantha, and that the Day Court has been responsible for archiving Prythian's knowledge of magic for centuries. The Day Court is known for its immense basin of knowledge and its people for their gift of inventing.

In A Court of Wings and Ruin, Helion gave a piece of his magic to Rhysand, so he could come back from the dead.
