Thousand Years War
The Thousand Years War is what singers call the ancient fighting in the north between the Kings of Winter from House Stark of Winterfell and the Barrow Kings of the barrowlands. Runes indicate there were probably two hundred years of conflict in separate wars, rather than a single war lasting a thousand years. The wars ended when the last Barrow King submitted to Winterfell and gave his daughter to the Stark king to marry. The barrowlands have since been ruled by House Dustin of Barrowton, bannermen of the Starks who claim descent from the Barrow Kings.
