"House Greyjoy" is part of the "Histories & Lore", a special feature in the Blu-ray of Season 2 of Game of Thrones. It is narrated by Alfie Allen and Gemma Whelan as Prince Theon Greyjoy and Princess Yara Greyjoy, respectively.
Theon: Or so we used to be.
Yara: Theirs was the Drowned God, who made the ironborn to reave and sack and write their names in salt, steel and song... that his enemy - the Storm God - could not wash away. We raised our kings from our own ranks and used beaten foes as thralls to work our mines and farm our land...
Yara: House Greyjoy had always been one of the greatest houses of the Iron Islands. We trace their descent from the Age of Heroes and the legendary Grey King, who took a mermaid to wife and made war upon the Storm God for a thousand years.
Theon: Blessed by the Drowned God, the Grey King fought and slew Nagga the great Sea Dragon and took her fire for his own.
Yara: This history made our ancestor, Vickon Greyjoy, the natural choice to lead the Ironborn after Aegon's Conquest.
Theon: In truth, we were thralls. Our people still chanted "What is Dead May Never Die", but the old way had died.
Yara: Until the Targaryens followed their dragons into the grave, and our lord father, Balon Greyjoy, rose against the new king Robert Baratheon. He seized our ancient crown and sent our Iron Feet against the Lannisters at Lannisport... burning all of their ships before any could lay anchor.
Theon and Yara: What is dead may never die, but rises again harder and stronger.
