Rodrik Stark was a King in the North and head of House Stark. His statue is in the crypts of Winterfell, near that of Torrhen Stark.[2]

History

After the death of the Old Kraken, Loron Greyjoy, King Rodrik is claimed to have won Bear Island from the ironborn in a wrestling match and awarded it to House Mormont.[2][1] Some maesters question the authenticity of the story. Rodrik's sons and grandsons battled the ironborn for Cape Kraken.[1]
