Robb Stark | House Stark | Lord of Winterfell | FC: Richard Madden | Taken
“We are a free and independent kingdom.”
Robb Stark is the eldest son of Eddard Stark and Catelyn Tully and the heir to Winterfell and the North. Robb’s appearance favored his Tully side, with a stocky build, blue eyes, and thick red-brown hair. He is his father’s son, with a keen sense of honor and justice. He shares his father’s devotion to honor and is frequently accompanied by his direwolf, Grey Wind, whom he always takes with him into battle. Robb was born in Riverrun, presumably the product of Eddard and Catelyn’s wedding night, for Eddard raced off to war immediately following the nuptials to fight in Robert’s Rebellion. Upon his return from the war, Catelyn greeted Ned with an infant Robb, and all returned to Winterfell, where Ned would rule as Lord and Robb was to be raised as his heir. Growing up in Winterfell, Robb was on good terms with his younger siblings, and developed a friendly rivalry with his bastard half-brother, Jon Snow, who differs from Robb in appearance and personality. Robb was also close with his father’s ward, Theon Greyjoy, who came to regard Robb as something of a younger brother. He has been trained from childhood to wield a sword and wear armor by Winterfell’s Master-at-ArmsRodrik Cassel, and is highly proficient with both for his young age.
