Brandon Stark, also known as Brandon the Builder and Bran the Builder, was the legendary founder[1] of House Stark who is said to have lived during the Age of Heroes.



According to legend, Brandon built the Wall and Winterfell.[2] Some stories say he did it with the help of giants. Some claim Brandon also helped Durran build Storm's End when he was a boy[3] and that he designed the Hightower at Oldtown.[4] Tales from the Reach claim that Bran the Builder was a descendent of Brandon of the Bloody Blade, a son of the mythical Garth Greenhand.[5]

It is said that Bran the Builder gave the Night's Watch Brandon's Gift, a stretch of land 25 leagues wide, but some maesters argue it was another Brandon of House Stark.[6]


No one can even say for certain if Brandon the Builder ever lived. He is as remote from the time of the novels as Noah and Gilgamesh are from our own time.[7]
