"A Stark granted a keep and land to his younger son, Karlon, in return for putting down a rebellion. His family then grew up into the Karstarks."
Jon Snow[src]

Karlon Stark is an unseen character in Game of Thrones. He is dead by the time in which the show takes place. He was a younger son of the King in the North who was awarded lands on the eastern region of the North after putting down a rebellion of House Bolton of the Dreadfort.

Over time, Karlon's seat, known as Karl's Hold, became known as Karhold. Karlon's descendants, the Karl's Hold Starks became known as Karstarks.[1][2]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Karlon Stark's story is the same, except that the books do not specify which vassal house the rebel lord belonged to.
