The Red Wedding was a massacre that killed Robb Stark, Catelyn Stark, many of their bannermen, and the majority of their military forces during the War of the Five Kings. The massacre was masterminded by Tywin Lannister, Walder Frey, and Roose Bolton. It was carried out at the Twins by Frey and Bolton men during the wedding feast of Edmure Tully.
During the War of the Five Kings, the Freys rose in rebellion against the Iron Throne for the King in the North. The rebellion was contingent on a Frey's betrothal to Robb Stark. However, after Robb Stark broke his betrothal to a Frey for a Westerling, Lord Walder Frey plotted his revenge for the slight. Lord Frey arranged another marriage between Edmure Tully and his daughter Roslin Frey. Conspiring with Roose Bolton and Tywin Lannister, Lord Frey smuggled in a host of sellswords and knights disguised as musicians. During the wedding feast, the "musicians" began to kill the household and supporters of the King in the North, including his mother, Catelyn Stark, and took Edmure Tully captive.
