"I need lessons in courtesy from you, bastard? Your mother would still be a milkmaid if I hadn't squirted you into her belly!"
Walder Frey to his bastard son[src]

Walder Rivers is a minor character in the first season. He is played by guest star Bryan McCaugherty and only appears in "Baelor." Ser Walder Rivers is a bastard son of Lord Walder Frey, the head of House Frey and Lord of the Crossing.


Season 1

Ser Walder is present when Catelyn Stark visits Lord Walder Frey to negotiate passage for her son's army across the trident. Like his trueborn half-brother, Stevron Frey, Walder admonishes his father to remember his courtesies. Lord Frey dismisses his son and reminds him that he's a bastard born of a milkmaid.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ser Walder Rivers is the eldest and most prominent of Lord Walder Frey's bastard offspring. He is a gruff, dour man with grey hair. Though not a trueborn Frey, he is often put in positions of responsibility for the house due to his strong reputation as a warrior. His personal coat of arms is a silver-grey castle on blue - the colors of House Frey reversed - beneath a red bend sinister.

The lines spoken in the episode, however, fit part of the dialogue spoken in A Game of Thrones by another of Lord Frey's baseborn children, Ryger Rivers, who is described as being young and whose mother milked goats.
