Appearance and Character

Colin Carnegie as Stevron in Game of Thrones

A polite man in his sixties, Stevron's appearance shows his age.[4] He has watery grey eyes.[4] According to Catelyn Stark, Stevron resembles a weasel, like his father, Lord Walder.

Walder has groomed Stevron for lordship of House Frey, though Walder often jokes that Stevron has been waiting for him to die for forty years. Through his father, Stevron has learned to place great importance on the family.[5] Stevron, unlike his father, is amiable and reasonable. Big Walder Frey considers Stevron tired and too old for battles.[6]


Stevron was too old to ride in the tourney on Prince Joffrey's name day in 297 AC.[4]

Recent Events

A Game of Thrones

After King Joffrey I Baratheon comes to the Iron Throne, Stevron and his father, Lord Walder Frey, are among the nobles demanded to swear fealty in King's Landing.[7]

Stevron leads the parley with the northern army when they arrive beneath the walls of the Twins, and Catelyn Stark then negotiates inside the castle with Lord Walder. House Frey allies with Robb Stark in return for him agreeing to marry a daughter of Walder, and Stevron commands the Frey contingent who heads west of the Green Fork with Robb.[4]

At Riverrun after the Battle of the Camps, a cautious Stevron suggests that the north and the riverlands should let Lord Tywin Lannister and Lord Renly Baratheon weaken themselves in fighting over the Iron Throne. Stevron offers to travel to Harrenhal to ransom the captured Ser Jaime Lannister back to his father Tywin, but the Frey heir receives outrage in response. Instead, Robb is named King in the North by the collected northmen and rivermen.[8]

A Clash of Kings

Robb's mother, Catelyn Stark, suggests that Stevron be sent as an envoy to Balon Greyjoy, Lord of the Iron Islands. Robb instead sends his friend, Balon's son Theon,[9] who ends up betraying Robb and capturing Winterfell.[10]

Stevron accompanies Robb in his campaign into the westerlands and personally leads the Frey soldiers into battle. He is wounded at the Battle of Oxcross. The wound is not thought serious, but three days later Stevron is found dead in his tent.[6] He is succeeded as heir to the Twins by his first son, Ser Ryman Frey. Maester Luwin scolds Big Walder and Little Walder Frey for not being upset at their uncle's passing.[6]

A Storm of Swords

King Robb marries Jeyne Westerling at the Crag, breaking his promise to marry a Frey girl. On his return to Riverrun, Robb tells Catelyn that if Stevron was alive he felt he could have made amends with the Freys over the broken marriage contract. However, the other Freys, bar Olyvar, are unreasonable.[11] Robb often recalls how Stevron died bravely serving him.[11][12]

During the Red Wedding, Catelyn offers to exchange Stevron's second son, Aegon Frey, a fool nicknamed Jinglebell, for the wounded Robb, saying, "I will spare your boy's life for Robb's. A son for a son."[13] Lord Walder Frey, who has already lost his first son and heir, Stevron, replies, "A son for a son, heh. But that's a grandson..."[13] When Lord Roose Bolton kills Robb, Catelyn responds by sawing through the throat of Aegon.[13]



Quotes by Stevron

Stevron: Father, you forget yourself. Lady Stark is here at your invitation.
Walder: Did I ask you? You are not Lord Frey yet, not until I die. Do I look dead? I'll hear no instructions from you.[4]

Quotes about Stevron

The Freys all looked like weasels; Ser Stevron, past sixty with grandchildren of his own, looked like an especially old and tired weasel, yet he was polite enough.[4]

—thoughts of Catelyn Stark

They're all waiting for me to die. Stevron's been waiting for forty years, but I keep disappointing him. Heh. Why should I die just so he can be a lord? I ask you. I won't do it.[4]

When Ser Stevron had been heir, that was one thing. The old man had been grooming Stevron for sixty years, and had pounded it into his head that blood was blood. But Stevron had died whilst campaigning with the Young Wolf in the west—"of waiting, no doubt," Lame Lothar had quipped when the raven brought them the news—and his sons and grandsons were a different sort of Frey.[5]

—thoughts of Merrett Frey
