The legendary first Storm King, Durran, lived during the Age of Heroes and belonged to the First Men ethnic group. When the Andals invaded Westeros, they conquered the Stormlands but the title of "Storm King" remained.
During the War of Conquest the last Storm King of the Durrandon dynasty, Argilac the Arrogant, was killed in battle by Aegon I Targaryen's bastard half-brother Orys Baratheon, who thereafter claimed Argilac's seat at the castle Storm's End, his sigil, his words, and his daughter, founding House Baratheon.
