Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

When Robb Stark rides to war against the Lannisters after the arrest in King's Landing of his father, Lord Eddard Stark, he surrounds himself with highborn warriors. Just as he rides with a different lord at the head of his army every day in order to know and honor his bannermen, Robb's choice of bodyguards serves to honor the houses from which they are picked. Most of these fighters are young men, although Dacey Mormont is female, and Ser Wendel Manderly, Robin Flint, and Ser Perwyn Frey are all mature men.[1]

At Robb's side during the battle in the Whispering Wood are thirty young sons of lords, three of whom are killed by Ser Jaime Lannister.[1] After Eddard's execution by order of King Joffrey I Baratheon, Robb is proclaimed King in the North at Riverrun by northern and river lords.[2]
