The '''Night's King''' is a recurring character in the [[Season 4|fourth]] and [[Season 5|fifth]] seasons. He is played by guest star [[Richard Brake]] and first appears in "[[Oathkeeper]]". He is the leader of the [[White Walkers]].
   
According to legend, the Night's King was originally a [[Lord Commander]] of the [[Night's Watch]] who found in the [[Haunted Forest]] a [[Night's Queen|cold woman]] with bright blue eyes, seemingly a female [[White Walkers|White Walker]]. He took her to the other side of [[the Wall]] and declared himself "Night's King". For thirteen years the two ruled over the brothers of the Night's Watch, performing human sacrifices. The Free Folk rallied under the banner of a [[King-Beyond-the-Wall]] and marched against the [[Nightfort]], which the Night's King had taken as his seat, defeating him with the aid of [[House Stark]].<ref>"[[The Night's Watch (Histories & Lore)]]"</ref>

[[File:Nights king.jpg|thumb|left|The Night's King during the [[Age of Heroes]].]]
  +
The Night’s King lived during the [[Age of Heroes]], not long after [[the Wall]] was complete. He was a fearless warrior, who was named the thirteenth [[Lord Commander of the Night's Watch]]. Later he fell in love with [[Night's Queen|a woman]] “with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars”, he chased her and loved her though “her skin was cold as ice,” and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well. He brought her back to the [[Nightfort]] and after the unholy union, he declared himself king and her his queen, and ruled the Nightfort as his own castle for thirteen years.

During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities were committed, of which tales are still told in [[the North]]. It was not until [[Brandon Stark (the Breaker)|Brandon the Breaker]], the [[King in the North]], and [[Joramun]], the [[King-Beyond-the-Wall]], joined forces that the Night’s King was [[Fall of the Night's King|brought down]] and the Night’s Watch freed. After his fall, when it was discovered that he had been sacrificing to the [[White Walkers]] (possibly in similar way to [[Craster]]), all records of him were destroyed and his very name was forbidden.<ref>"[[The Night's Watch (Histories & Lore)]]"</ref>
   
In the ''[[A Song of Ice and Fire]]'' novels, the Night's King was a Lord Commander of the Night's Watch during its earliest years, not long after the [[Long Night]] ended and [[the Wall]] was completed. He is considered a legendary, half-mythical figure, not far removed from [[Bran the Builder]]. If he really did exist, it was almost eight thousand years ago - consider that while the Night's King was the thirteenth Lord Commander, at the time of the [[War of the Five Kings]], [[Jeor Mormont]] is the 997th Lord Commander.

  +
The Night's King first appears in a vision that [[Bran Stark]] has, when he uses the [[Greensight]] and [[Warg]]s with a [[Weirwood]] [[Heart tree]]. He experiences a flood of images from the past, present, and future, many of which he was not physically present for. He does not comprehend what all of these images are. In retrospect, one of them is an image of the Night's King picking up the last of Craster's sons on an ice altar.<ref>"[[The Lion and the Rose]]"</ref>
  +
  +
After [[Rast]] places [[Craster's final son]] on the ground in the [[Haunted Forest]], a [[White Walker (Oathkeeper)|White Walker]] riding an undead horse approaches and takes the baby, carrying it towards a shattered mountain in the [[Lands of Always Winter]].
  +
[[File:Baby.jpg|thumb|left|With a touch of his finger, the Night's King turns Craster's final son into a White Walker.]]
  +
Once inside, the White Walker approaches an icy altar ringed by large icy spikes and places the baby upon the altar. In the distance, a group of thirteen black-garbed White Walkers are revealed to be viewing the proceedings from afar. One of them breaks from the middle of their number and approaches the altar, stopping to regard the human child for a moment before gently gathering him in its arms. The baby immediately calms, staring into the face of the Night's King, who is revealed to have a crown of horns jutting from its head. He places his index finger upon the baby's cheek, causing the child's eyes to slow turn to icy, depthless blue and his skin to grow pale, finally revealing the fate of Craster's other sons.<ref name="E34">"[[Oathkeeper]]"</ref>

The Night's King appears again when [[Jon Snow]] and [[Tormund Giantsbane]] are coordinating the evacuation of [[Hardhome]]. He appears to be leading the attack, or is at least observing it with some other White Walkers, and watches from one of the cliffs above the town as Jon slays one of [[White Walker (Hardhome)|his lieutenants]] with [[Longclaw]]. As Jon, Tormund and the remaining defenders leave on the boat, the Night's King appears on the dock and locks eyes with Jon. With a mere raise of his arms, the Night's King raises the entirety of Hardhome's erstwhile defenders as [[wights]], and keeps his gaze upon Jon as the boat slips away.<ref name="S05E08">"[[Hardhome (episode)|Hardhome]]"</ref>

==In the books==
  +
In the ''[[A Song of Ice and Fire]]'' novels, there has not yet been any mention of the Others, who appear in person only very occasionally, currently having a leader or any kind of hierarchy. The Night's King is believed to be long dead, and the legends about him don't suggest he was an Other.
   
However, the Night's King fell in love with a woman "with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars"; he loved her though "her skin was cold as ice", and when he gave his seed to her he gave her his soul as well. He brought her to the Nightfort and bound the brothers of the Night's Watch to his will through sorcery. He declared himself "Night's King" and ruled over the Wall and [[the Gift]] as his own. The [[King in the North]] and [[Joramun]], the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces to defeat him.
+
The Night's King is a legendary Lord Commander of the Night's Watch who lived during the Age of Heroes, not long after the Wall was complete. According to legend, he was a fearless warrior named the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Later, he fell in love with a woman "with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars". He chased her and loved her though "her skin was cold as ice", and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well. He brought her back to the Nightfort and after the unholy union, he declared himself king and her his queen, and ruled the Nightfort as his own castle for thirteen years. During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities were committed, of which tales are still told in the North. It was not until Brandon the Breaker, the King of Winter, and Joramun the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces that the Night's King was brought down and the Night's Watch freed. After his fall, when it was discovered that he had been making sacrifices to the Others, all records of him were destroyed and his very name was forbidden and forgotten. It is likely this led the lords of the North to forbid the Night's Watch to construct walls at their keeps, ensuring the keeps would always be accessible from the south.
   
After he was killed, it was discovered that he had been making human sacrifices to the Others - the White Walkers - and all records of him were destroyed, and uttering his name was forbidden, so it became lost to history. Nevertheless, it is believed he may have been a [[House Bolton|Bolton]], a Magnar of [[Skagos]], an [[House Umber|Umber]], a Flint, a Norrey, or a Woodfoot, though it is possible he may have actually been a Stark, brother to the King-in-the-North, named Bran.
+
One of the Stories [[Old Nan]] told Bran is about the Night's King. She said some people believe the Night's King was a [[House Bolton|Bolton]], a [[Magnar]] of [[Skagos]], an [[House Umber|Umber]], a Flint, a Norrey, or a Woodfoot. However, she identified the Night's King as a [[House Stark|Stark]] of [[Winterfell]] and brother to the King of the North, and hints his name was Brandon.
   
After the defeat of the Night's King, the rule was enforced that the castles of the Night's Watch along the Wall should never be fortified against approach from the south, so that they cannot oppose the lands south of the Wall which they are meant to defend. The downfall of the Night's King also resulted in the strict enforcement of the rule that the Night's Watch is meant to be politically neutral, as guardians who do not "rule" the Wall but who serve the realms of men.
+
In the TV series, the Night's King reanimates dead men into wights with only his will, and turns Craster's sons into White Walkers with his touch, abilities that have not been specified in the books. In fact, the fate of Craster's sons is still unknown: Old Nan's tales allude to the Others' feeding human children to the wights, or that wildling women lay with White Walkers to make horrible half-Walker babies, etc. [[Craster's wives]] do say that they ''believe'' that the infant sons that Craster gave the Others as sacrifices were turned into new White Walkers - but it wasn't clear if this is what ''actually'' happens, or if it was just the wild suspicion of Craster's frightened, isolated wives. When [[Samwell Tarly]] is told to flee with [[Gilly]] and her [[Sam|newborn son]], Gilly urges that if he doesn't "they" will come for him. When he asks who "they" are, another wife says: "The boy's brothers...Craster's sons. The white cold's rising out there, crow. I can feel it in my bones. These poor old bones don't lie. They'll be here soon, the sons." Confirmation of what exactly happens to Craster's sons has not occurred in the books yet. Given the inaccuracy of Nan's other stories, however, it is apparent that the show's writers felt Craster's wife may have inside information regarding their fates.

BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Nights king

The Night's King during the Age of Heroes.

The Night’s King lived during the Age of Heroes, not long after the Wall was complete. He was a fearless warrior, who was named the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Later he fell in love with a woman “with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars”, he chased her and loved her though “her skin was cold as ice,” and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well. He brought her back to the Nightfort and after the unholy union, he declared himself king and her his queen, and ruled the Nightfort as his own castle for thirteen years.

During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities were committed, of which tales are still told in the North. It was not until Brandon the Breaker, the King in the North, and Joramun, the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces that the Night’s King was brought down and the Night’s Watch freed. After his fall, when it was discovered that he had been sacrificing to the White Walkers (possibly in similar way to Craster), all records of him were destroyed and his very name was forbidden.[1]

Season 4Edit

White Walker leaders thirteen at temple

The Night's King approaches an altar-like ice formation where Craster's last son has been placed.

The Night's King first appears in a vision that Bran Stark has, when he uses the Greensight and Wargs with a Weirwood Heart tree. He experiences a flood of images from the past, present, and future, many of which he was not physically present for. He does not comprehend what all of these images are. In retrospect, one of them is an image of the Night's King picking up the last of Craster's sons on an ice altar.[2]

After Rast places Craster's final son on the ground in the Haunted Forest, a White Walker riding an undead horse approaches and takes the baby, carrying it towards a shattered mountain in the Lands of Always Winter.

Baby

With a touch of his finger, the Night's King turns Craster's final son into a White Walker.

Once inside, the White Walker approaches an icy altar ringed by large icy spikes and places the baby upon the altar. In the distance, a group of thirteen black-garbed White Walkers are revealed to be viewing the proceedings from afar. One of them breaks from the middle of their number and approaches the altar, stopping to regard the human child for a moment before gently gathering him in its arms. The baby immediately calms, staring into the face of the Night's King, who is revealed to have a crown of horns jutting from its head. He places his index finger upon the baby's cheek, causing the child's eyes to slow turn to icy, depthless blue and his skin to grow pale, finally revealing the fate of Craster's other sons.[3]

Season 5 Edit

WhiteWalker (Hardhome)

The Night's King looks at Jon Snow.

The Night's King appears again when Jon Snow and Tormund Giantsbane are coordinating the evacuation of Hardhome. He appears to be leading the attack, or is at least observing it with some other White Walkers, and watches from one of the cliffs above the town as Jon slays one of his lieutenants with Longclaw.

With a mere raise of his arms, the Night's King raises the entirety of Hardhome's erstwhile defenders as wights, and keeps his gaze upon Jon as the boat slips away.[4]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • White Walker conversion: The Night's King can turn a human baby into a White Walker by pressing the tip of his finger to the baby's cheek. The child's skin will begin to pale and its eyes will turn the same blue as the other White Walkers.[3]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there has not yet been any mention of the Others, who appear in person only very occasionally, currently having a leader or any kind of hierarchy. The Night's King is believed to be long dead, and the legends about him don't suggest he was an Other.

The Night's King is a legendary Lord Commander of the Night's Watch who lived during the Age of Heroes, not long after the Wall was complete. According to legend, he was a fearless warrior named the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Later, he fell in love with a woman "with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars". He chased her and loved her though "her skin was cold as ice", and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well. He brought her back to the Nightfort and after the unholy union, he declared himself king and her his queen, and ruled the Nightfort as his own castle for thirteen years. During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities were committed, of which tales are still told in the North. It was not until Brandon the Breaker, the King of Winter, and Joramun the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces that the Night's King was brought down and the Night's Watch freed. After his fall, when it was discovered that he had been making sacrifices to the Others, all records of him were destroyed and his very name was forbidden and forgotten. It is likely this led the lords of the North to forbid the Night's Watch to construct walls at their keeps, ensuring the keeps would always be accessible from the south.

One of the Stories Old Nan told Bran is about the Night's King. She said some people believe the Night's King was a Bolton, a Magnar of Skagos, an Umber, a Flint, a Norrey, or a Woodfoot. However, she identified the Night's King as a Stark of Winterfell and brother to the King of the North, and hints his name was Brandon.

In the TV series, the Night's King reanimates dead men into wights with only his will, and turns Craster's sons into White Walkers with his touch, abilities that have not been specified in the books. In fact, the fate of Craster's sons is still unknown: Old Nan's tales allude to the Others' feeding human children to the wights, or that wildling women lay with White Walkers to make horrible half-Walker babies, etc. Craster's wives do say that they believe that the infant sons that Craster gave the Others as sacrifices were turned into new White Walkers - but it wasn't clear if this is what actually happens, or if it was just the wild suspicion of Craster's frightened, isolated wives. When Samwell Tarly is told to flee with Gilly and her newborn son, Gilly urges that if he doesn't "they" will come for him. When he asks who "they" are, another wife says: "The boy's brothers...Craster's sons. The white cold's rising out there, crow. I can feel it in my bones. These poor old bones don't lie. They'll be here soon, the sons." Confirmation of what exactly happens to Craster's sons has not occurred in the books yet. Given the inaccuracy of Nan's other stories, however, it is apparent that the show's writers felt Craster's wife may have inside information regarding their fates.
