"Lord Stark! Torrhen's Square is under siege."
―Ser Rodrik Cassel to Prince Bran Stark[src]

The Raid on Torrhen's Square is a battle during the War of the Five Kings. It is part of a ploy by Theon Greyjoy - who had abandoned House Stark and aligned himself with his father Balon Greyjoy, the self-fashioned King of the Iron Islands - to seize Winterfell and gain the respect of his father and fellow ironborn.


Prelude and battleEdit

After news of an unidentified party attacking Torrhen's Square reach Winterfell, Prince Bran Stark sends Rodrik Cassel to defend the Stark bannermen of House Tallhart.


With Winterfell undefended, Theon leads his crew to Winterfell and seizes it. In the meantime, Ser Rodrik is defeated and captured by the ironborn.

In the booksEdit

In the books, the attack on Torrhen's Square is led personally by Dagmer Cleftjaw. He is driven away by Ser Rodrik Cassel and men from House Cerwyn back to the Stony Shore. After Rodrik returns to Winterfell in attempt to free it, Dagmer and his men return to Torrhen's Square and take it. Currently they are still there.
