The North and the location of the Stony Shore

The Stony Shore is an area along the western edge of the North.[1] It is sparsely populated with only a few fishing villages.[2]


House Fisher ruled the Stony Shore as First Men kings after the Long Night, but they eventually submitted to the Kings of Winter and became vassals of House Stark of Winterfell.[3] It is unknown if the Fishers still rule the area or are an extinct house.
