Balon Greyjoy

Balon Greyjoy

Head of the ruling house of the Iron Islands, Balon Greyjoy revolted against Robert Baratheon in an attempt to win the Islands their independence. Two of his sons died in the battle and Balon was forced to surrender his only surviving son, Theon, to Ned Stark to raise as a ward – human insurance that the Greyjoys will remain loyal to Winterfell.

Yara Greyjoy

Theon's older sister, Yara, is the only child of Balon Greyjoy's who remains on the Iron Islands.

Theon Greyjoy

Theon Greyjoy

A one-time ward of House Stark, Theon has reached a friendly détente with the family, and was quick to join his close friend Robb in his rebellion against King Joffrey. Still, his cavalier actions and swaggering style contrast greatly with the staid ways of the North.

Euron Greyjoy

Euron Greyjoy

Euron Greyjoy is the younger brother of Balon Greyjoy, head of House Greyjoy, Lord Reaper of Pyke and self-fashioned King of the Iron Islands.

House Greyjoy

  • House Greyjoy
  • House Greyjoy's power dates back to the reign of the great Grey King during the Age of Heroes. Legend has it that the Grey King ruled the sea itself and took a mermaid for his wife. The Greyjoys have always had larger designs than ruling the Iron Islands, as evidenced by the ambitious - if misguided - rule of Balon Greyjoy. After Balon's murder, Euron Greyjoy was elected king, while Yara brokered a deal with Daenerys Targaryen to support her own claim.

Pyke

Seat Pyke

Seat of House Greyjoy

This ancient stronghold, which takes its name from the island it stands on, is situated on a scattering of huge stones in the sea, with bridges connecting its towers. Its rocky, moss-covered foundations prevent any ships from landing.
