King of Westeros is the self-styled title of Stannis Baratheon.[1] In contrast, his elder brother, Robert I Baratheon, styled himself King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men and Lord of the Seven Kingdoms,[2] phrasing utilized by his Targaryen predecessors since the reign of Aegon I Targaryen.[3]

The phrasing indicates that Stannis considers himself the rightful ruler of the entire continent of Westeros, including the lands beyond the Wall.
