Edrick ruled the north for almost a hundred years. His reign was marked by quarrels between his descendents, as well external threats from the ironborn, wildlings, and the Starks' ancient rivals, House Bolton. The outer walls of Winterfell were thus raised during Edrick's time. Slavers from the Stepstones captured the Wolf's Den once Edrick grew feeble. He is buried in the crypts beneath Winterfell.
