Southron is a northern Westerosi name for the southern Westerosi that come from below the Neck. It can also be a patronising name at times.

The free folk refer to all Westerosi south of the Wall as southron.[1] The name can also be used outside of Westeros. By the Isle of Cedars, Victarion Greyjoy thinks of the treacherous storms encountered by the Iron Fleet as “southron storms”.[2]


There’s much and more you southrons do not know about the north.[3]

- Bartimus to Davos Seaworth

Everything below the Wall's south to us.[4]

- Ygritte, to Jon Snow

If Your Grace wishes to lose all of my lord father's bannermen, there is no more certain a way than by giving northern halls to southron lords.

Jon Snow to Stannis Baratheon

And I am no southron lady but a woman of the free folk.[1]

Val to Jon Snow

Ned's girl ... And we would have had her and the castle both if you prancing southron jackanapes didn’t piss your satin breeches at a little snow.

- Hugo Wull to Robin Peasebury

Another bloody southron fool.
