↳ Pride and Prejudice:: “And those are the words of a gentleman. From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.”

The Starks of Winterfell trace their descent to the First Men in the Age of Heroes. The family’s founder was Brandon the Builder.
The Starks reigned as kings for thousands of years, even withstanding the invasion of the Andals. As the southern kingdoms fell and the Children of the Forest were driven away, the North stood strong, maintaining its religious customs and its way of life. Eventually, the reigns of the Kings of Winter came to an end with the coming of Aegon the Conqueror. After Aegon and his dragons destroyed the combined armies of the Reach and the Rock at the Field of Fire, King Torrhen Stark bent the knee and swore fealty to the Targaryen dynasty in order to spare the destruction of Wintefell and his people.
Their family words, “Winter Is Coming”, serve as a reminder of their beginnings in the wake of the Long Night and a grim portent of things to come.
