The Starks make camp following their victory at the Yellow Fork.

"Ser Alton's pen is full, Your Grace...the prisoners from the Yellow Fork."
Rickard Karstark to Robb Stark[src]

The Yellow Fork is a river in the Westerlands, north of Ashemark.


Season 2

The river is the site of a battle between House Stark and House Lannister during the War of the Five Kings, resulting in the Starks' victory.[1]

Behind the scenes

The location of the river is not specified. Robb's army fights there after the Battle of Oxcross and before the Surrender of the Crag. It is therefore likely to be in the northern part of the Westerlands between these two locations. Lannister scouts report that Robb's army remains north of Ashemark shortly after the battle takes place so it is likely in the northern part of the region. The three forks of the Trident are similarly named but only the Red Fork lies near the Westerlands.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is no river named Yellow Fork.
