The Red Raven was a member of the free folk and was the younger brother of Raymun Redbeard, a legendary King-Beyond-the-Wall. His given name is unknown.
A Dance with Dragons
According to Tormund Giantsbane, after Raymun and his sons were defeated and killed by Artos Stark and Lord Harmond Umber at the Battle of Long Lake, the Red Raven fled back to the lands beyond the Wall.
Tormund also tells Jon Snow that the Red Raven received his nickname from his hair color and because the bard who composed a song on him needed a word that rhymed with "craven".
Tormund states Gerrick Kingsblood and his offspring are descended from the Red Raven, not the king, Raymun Redbeard.
