"Durran declared war on the gods and rebuilt his keep, which was also destroyed."
Bran Stark[src]

Durran, also known as Durran Godsgrief, is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is deceased when the series begins and has only appeared in the Complete Guide to Westeros and Histories & Lore featurettes.

Durran was a legendary First Men figure of the Age of Heroes and the first of the Storm Kings, who ruled the Stormlands until the Targaryen invasion of Westeros. According to legend, Durran won the love of Elenei, daughter of the sea god and the wind goddess, and took her as his wife.

In rage, the gods sent a storm to destroy his keep over Shipbreaker Bay, killing his family and guests. Declaring war against them, Durran built new castles, each larger and more formidable than the previous one, though all were the destroyed by the divine storms. Finally, the seventh castle, which Durran built with the aid of either the Children of the Forest or a very young Bran the Builder, withstood the rage of the gods and became known as Storm's End, while Durran earned the nickname of "Durran's Godsgrief" and ruled as the first Storm King.[1][2]

Durran's dynasty, House Durrandon, perished with the death of Argilac Durrandon. However, House Baratheon descends from it through its female bloodline.[3]
