- "Let me send word to my bastard at the Dreadfort. He can raise a few hundred men and retake Winterfell before the new moon."
- ―Roose Bolton
Ramsay Snow is a character in the third season. Ramsay, better known as "The Bastard of Bolton", is Lord Roose Bolton's bastard son and only living child. He stayed behind at the Dreadfort when his father left for the south to fight in the War of the Five Kings.
Ramsay Snow besieges Winterfell in the name of King Robb Stark as ordered. He infuriates Theon Greyjoy - who currently holds the castle in the name of the Iron Islands and his father - by having a soldier blow a horn all through the night. In the morning of the next day, when Theon rallies his men to defend the castle, he is betrayed and knocked out cold by his men, who seem to take Robb Stark's offer of mercy for any ironborn in the castle except Theon, as expected. However, the castle is mysteriously sacked afterwards.
Ramsay Snow sends word to Harrenhal, where the main force of the Northern army has established, of the sacking of Winterfell by the ironborn, of the disappearance of Bran and Rickon Stark, and the unknown whereabouts of Theon Greyjoy
