Westeros Edit

'*' denotes Houses currently unclaimed but with a history/major impact in the GOTRP's past.

The North Edit

During the War of the Five Kings, the North was liberated from Bolton rule by Stannis Baratheon, and the Starks restored to paramountcy. The North saw little conflict after the war, save for a brief attempt by Davos Baratheon to invade and replace their religion with the Seven. Predictably, the invasion was stopped at the Neck.

Sometime prior to the first era, Walton Bolton declared his house to be independent from the North and the Iron Throne, after an insult from King Harys Baratheon. The Bolton Uprising was put down by the king and Edmure Stark, who was thought to have put all of House Bolton to the sword.

The Riverlands Edit

Following the turmoil of the region that was the War of the Five Kings, the Riverlands found themselves under the control of a new Great House, House Baelish of Harrenhal. The Tullys were restored to their ancestral seat of Riverrun, ruling their lands and becoming vassals to the monstrous black castle. The Freys, who also held on to their weak claim at the title, did the same from the Crossing.

For the better part of the two centuries to follow, House Baelish maintained control over the lands through sly and deviant actions, until they trickled to hardly be in existence at all.

The Westerlands Edit

The Westerlands continued under Lannister rule after the War of Five Kings through the line of Daven Lannister, Warden of the West and cousin to Tywin Lannister.

During the Red Stag War, House Lannister and Florent were the initial supporters of the Lightharts' claim on the Iron Throne,

Follwing the war, the kingdom managed to return to be the wealthiest of all seven, due to its robust mining-driven economy as well as seeing little to no conflict following two centuries of Baratheon rule, keeping mostly to itself.

The Vale Edit

Under the rulership of House Arryn, the Vale continued to remain in relative peace for the centuries of Baratheon rule. Lord Paramount Rumar Arryn, the father to future lords James and Nathaniel Arryn, ruled peacefully for many years, however, he also began to establish ties to other more notable houses including Stark, with the marriage of his heir to the eldest daughter of the Northern house.

The Reach Edit

The Reach continued to thrive under the Tyrell rule following the War of the Five Kings. During the beginning of Baratheon reign, the Reach (like the other Kingdoms) were skeptical of the Baratheons rulership. House Tyrell chose to lead the Reach in support of Baratheons in the Red Stag War, however, and aided King Davos in vanquishing the Lightharts. Following the victory in the Red Stag War, the two houses grew very close, resulting in the Reach benefiting greatly from the Iron Throne's favor for decades.

In 456 AC, the Tourney of Longtable was held by Lord Owen Merryweather in honor of the birth of then, Prince Renly Baratheon. Knights from all over the realm traveled south for the would-be twelve day event. It was cut short with the unexpected death of King Orys II's brother, Colen Baratheon, at the hands of the Grey Knight.

The Stormlands Edit

Throughout the rule of House Baratheon upon the Iron Throne, the Stormlands thrived and saw much favoritism. They were initially amongst the only backers of the house during the Red Stag War, fighting alongside the Crownlands and later the Reach.
