History of House Stark
The House Stark is an ancient House, which has over eight thousand years of noble lineage. The Starks are direct descendant of Brandon the Builder who is a King in the North responsible for building Winterfell and the Wall. Ever since the Wall has been constructed, the Starks have been in alliance with the Night’s Watch and together they protected the Wall from wildling attacks for thousands of years. Eventually, the different lords of the North bowed down to the Starks as their supreme lord.
Just before the start of the War of the Five Kings, Lord Eddard Stark was executed by order of Joffrey Lannister. Robb Stark became the successor and was declared King of the North by Eddard’s bannermen.
Robb Stark continues his battle with the Lannisters and gained several victories. Rob won against the Lannisters in the Riverlands, Westerlands, The Crag and The Yellow Fork.
Even though Robb Stark continues to win against the Lannisters, the House Baratheon became the most powerful House in the War of the Five Kings. One of Robb’s bannermen, Rickard Karstark, begins to lose faith in Robb. When King Robb arrives at Harrenhal, he discovers that Ser Gregor Clegane has left without a fight. King Robb finds out that his grandfather, Hoter Tully, died and he leaves Harrenhal and his men under the hands of Roose Bolton to go to Riverrun and attend the funeral.
Robb and Catelyn Stark was murdered and betrayed by the Frey’s and Boltons and it was later dubbed as the Red Wedding. This massacre was secretly orchestrated by Tywin Lannister, which decimated the northern lords and most of the northern army. The House Stark is no longer the lord of the North and it was given to the House Bolton. Roose Bolton is the new warden of the north.
The Bolton’s are trapped south of the Neck since the ironborn captured Moat Cailin, so they are unable to rule the North. Ramsay Bolton reclaimed the Moat and headed to Winterfell. Tywin Lannister wanted to have a grandson with Tyrion Lannister and Sansa Stark so he can return the north to the Starks but under Lannister control. However, Tyrion and Sansa ran away after King Joffrey’s assassination. Tywin was also killed and did not see his plan come into fruition.
