Lords Paramount of the North is a title in Game of Thrones. The holder of the title comes from the Great House of the North and acts as an overlord for the region of the North. Traditionally, the title of Lord Paramount of the North has been held by the Lords of Winterfell from House Stark. The Starks have held the title since King Torrhen Stark surrendered as Kings in the North to Aegon Targaryen in the Wars of Conquest. Torrhen was the first Lord Paramount of the North and served King Aegon the Conqueror.[1]

Torrhen's descendant Rickard Stark held the title under King Aerys II Targaryen. His son Eddard Stark inherited the title when Rickard and his heir, Brandon were executed by King Aerys.[2] Eddard's son Robb Stark inherits the title when Eddard os executed for treason on the orders of King Joffrey Baratheon. At the outbreak of the War of the Five Kings, Robb abandons his fealty to the Iron Throne, however, and this title when he was declared King in the North by his bannermen.[3]

Following the Red WeddingHouse Bolton is rewarded with control of the North for their part in the Red Wedding, during which Roose Bolton personally killed Robb Stark by stabbing him through the heart. However, he was named Warden of the North rather than the Lord Paramount.[4]
