"With the help of the Starks, we killed the demon and cleansed your precious watch."

King Brandon Stark, also known as Brandon the Breaker, was King in the North during the Age of Heroes.


According to legend, he allied with King-Beyond-the-Wall Joramun to defeat the Night's King and the Night's Queen, freeing the Night's Watch from their rule.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, his story is the same. After defeating the Night's King, he obliterated his name from memory. In some versions of the tale, he is the brother of the Night's King, also named Brandon.
