Lords Paramount of the North is a title in Game of Thrones. The holder is the Great House of the North. House Stark is the holder during the series. They 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 inherited the title when Eddard was executed for treason on the orders of King Joffrey Baratheon. At the outbreak of the War of the Five Kings, Robb abandoned 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 was rewarded with rulership of the North for their part in the Red Wedding, during which Roose Bolton personally killed Robb Stark by stabbing him throat the heart.[4]
