Brandon Stark, known as Brandon the Burner, was a King in the North and a head of House Stark. He was the son of Brandon the Shipwright.[1]


Brandon became King in the North after the disappearance in the Sunset Sea of his father, King Brandon the Shipwright, thousands of years before Aegon's Conquest.[2] In his grief,[3] the new king set fire to his father's shipyards and remaining ships.[3][2] Brandon's tomb is located in the crypt of Winterfell.[3]

A Clash of Kings

During the harvest feast, Lord Wyman Manderly offers to build a new warfleet for Robb Stark, King in the North, as the north has lacked naval strength since Brandon the Burner's time.[4]


We have had no strength at sea for hundreds of years, since Brandon the Burner put the torch to his father's ships. Grant me the gold and within the year I will float you sufficient galleys to take Dragonstone and King's Landing both.[4]
