The Twins are the two heavily fortified castles of House Frey. They are identical and each stands on a margin of the Green Fork river. A stone bridge arches between them. This bridge is wide enough for two wagons to cross abreast and guarded by a tower in the middle known as the Water Tower. The Twins have been the seat of House Frey for over six hundred years and they have grown wealthy by charging a heavy toll on all those who need to cross, as it is the only place to do so within several days travel. As the Freys are both wealthy and numerous, they are one of the most powerful houses sworn to House Tully, able to raise four thousand men-at-arms.

During the War of the Five Kings, the Twins were the stage for the event known as the Red Wedding.
