Warden of the North is a title traditionally held by House Stark, the lords of Winterfell and the North.[1]


The initial appointment of a warden in northern Westeros was likely to help deal with the wildlings. The territory of the North also has shores on both the Shivering Sea and the Sunset Sea, making pirates and reavers a real threat.
