The Lord of Volmark[1] is a title held by the head of House Volmark, the ruler of the Volmark on Harlaw.[1]


Lord Qhorin Volmark claimed the title of King of the Iron Islands, as his grandmother was the younger sister of King Harwyn Hardhand. He was slain by King Aegon I Targaryen in 2 AC, however.[2] Goren Greyjoy, Lord of the Iron Islands, defeated a conspiracy to crown Qhorin's son in 33 AC.[3]

Lord Volmark was put to the sword by westermen during Lady Johanna Lannister's invasion of the Iron Islands in 134 AC.[4]
