Game of Thrones House Bolton

House Frey

  • House Frey
  • The Freys served as bannermen to House Tully for generations, shoring up their wealth by charging travelers a fee to cross over the Trident River via their castle, the Twins. Ever ambitious, the family tended to marry up, a tradition encouraged by then Lord of the Crossing, Walder Frey. After ambushing the Stark troops at the wedding of his daughter Roslin, Walder Frey assumed the title of Lord Paramount of the Riverlands, though he had to ask the Lannisters for help in re-taking the Tully castle of Riverrun. Walder, and the rest of the Frey men, were murdered by Arya Stark in revenge for the Red Wedding.

  • ➲ The Riverlands
  • The Riverlands is one of the constituent regions of the Seven Kingdoms. They have been a frequent battleground in the civil wars that have afflicted the Seven Kingdoms and also in the wars that took place between the old nations of the continent before the Targaryen Conquest. During the time of the First Men, the Riverlands were an independent kingdom known as the Kingdom of the Rivers and the Hills.

    Located roughly in the center of the continent, and with few geographical boundaries such as mountains, for centuries it has been a borderland between surrounding strong kingdoms. The Riverlands were ruled by the ironborn at the time of the Targaryen Conquest, and Aegon the Conqueror's assault was assisted by a popular uprising led by House Tully. For this reason, the Riverlands didn't have a king at the time of the invasion, and the Riverlands are not technically counted as one of the "Seven" Kingdoms (instead essentially making up the eighth "kingdom") . However, for administrative purposes, the Riverlands and their rulers are equal to any other region of the realm.

    The Riverlands are currently in anarchy after the assassinations at the Twins, though a Lannister host has been deployed to attempt to keep the peace. Bastards born in the Riverlands are given the surname Rivers.

    During the War of the Five Kings, the riverlords hailed Robb Stark, who was the grandson of Hoster Tully through his daughter Catelyn as their King in the North, thus becoming part of the resurgent Kingdom of the North. However, Robb, Edmure Tully, and their bannermen were betrayed at the Red Wedding by two of their own bannermen: Roose Bolton and Walder Frey. House Frey was then elevated to rule of the Riverlands. However, the Freys were actively opposed by many of the riverlords, including Ser Brynden Tully who managed to retake Riverrun though eventually lost it when a Lannister host arrived to assist the Freys in their siege of Riverrun. Walder Frey and the rest of the Frey men were eventually assassinated by Arya Stark in retribution for their treachery, leaving the Riverlands in disarray and their political status ambiguous.
