King Robb Stark was the eldest son of Eddard Stark and Catelyn Tully, as well as the husband of Jeyne Westerling. He was looked up to by his brother, Bran Stark, and was good friends with Theon Greyjoy and his half brother Jon Snow. Robb was killed at the Red Wedding by Roose Bolton.

Appearance and CharacterEdit

Robb favours the features of House Tully, with thick auburn hair, blue eyes and a stocky build. He is both strong and fast. He learned a sense of honor and justice from his father, following strictly by the laws of the realm and enforcing them should needs be. Intelligent and fiercely determined, Robb is a born commander, winning every battle he has ever fought, but his weakness of putting his heart before his head leads to him losing the political side to the war he wages. Robb is hugely respected for his bravery and leadership skills, as well as his sense of honour, but because of his youth he is not an unbeatable man and lacks the wisdom that would come of true experience in war.

In fairness, Robb's fierce bravery and willingness to personally fight to the death for what he believes in sets him apart from his sworn enemy Joffrey Baratheon - a spoiled psychopath and a coward who talks big but never personally fights in battle and is not truly respected by his subjects, whereas Robb was revered by his men and his people, and his family loved him. Even Joffrey's siblings hate him - Robb's love and mourn him.

Robb is a skilled horseman and a great warrior. He is capable of taking advice from his bannermen and his elders.
