Ellard Stark was the Lord of Winterfell and the head of House Stark during the late reign of King Jaehaerys I Targaryen.[3][4]

History

At the Great Council of 101 AC, Lord Ellard supported first Princess Rhaenys Targaryen[5] and then her son, Laenor Velaryon.[3] This may have been because House Stark was angry with King Jaehaerys I Targaryen for earlier transferring the New Gift from northern control to the Night's Watch.[4] Prince Viserys Targaryen, Rhaenys's cousin, was chosen by the assembled lords as the new heir, however.[5]

Behind the Scenes

Earlier prints of The World of Ice & Fire state that Lord Ellard Stark was the lord who had been forced to give up the lands that would become known as the New Gift.[4] However, it has been confirmed that this is an error,[6] and that the statement would be replaced by "the Starks were glad" in later prints. It was revealed in Fire & Blood that Alaric Stark was the Lord of Winterfell during the creation of the New Gift.
