The War of the Wolves is the name by which singers refer to a savage conflict between House Stark and a skinchanger named Gaven Greywolf, referencing both Greywolf's name and the Stark sigil, the direwolf. He was killed along with his kin by a King of Winter during the course of the war. This was one of the many conflicts House Stark fought in the process of establishing their hegemony over the North.[1]
