The Prince of Winterfell is who Theon Greyjoy’s psyche comes to recall when he thinks of the whole man he once was, before the dungeons of the Dreadfort, before Ramsay Bolton made him his Reek.

The Prince of Winterfell, was arrogant, handsome and cocksure – very different from whom Theon is now. The Prince of Winterfell has become almost a third person to Theon, he compares himself to him.

I am the Prince of Winterfell! This is my seat, no man will drive me from it. No, nor woman either! [1]

He was Lord Ramsay’s creature, lower than a dog, a worm in human skin. “You will pretend to be a prince,” Lord Ramsay told him last night, as Reek was soaking in a tub of scalding water, “but we know the truth. You’re Reek. You’ll always be Reek, no matter how sweet you smell.

– Reek, on his way to Moat Cailin


I made myself the Prince of Winterfell, he thought, and from that came all of this. He had thought that men would sing of him for a hundred years and tell tales of his daring. But if anyone spoke of him now it was as Theon Turncloak, and tale were told of his treachery.


There will be no flaying here whilst I am Prince of Winterfell, Theon had responded, little dreaming how short his rule would prove.
