How would you punish house Bolton?

32 posts in this topic

I mean come on house Bolton has rebelled against the Starks to many times to count even going so far as to skin Stark royalty alive and even burn WF to the ground yet some how they manage to keep the Dreadfort and their lands each time this is a huge plot hole IMO but thats another topic. Lets say you are I believe it was Cregan Stark who put down the last Bolton rebllion how do you punish the Boltons???

"Hey, check it out.  See these ruins? This used to be the Dreadfort.  There used to be a family here, called House Bolton."

Deal with them like Tywin Lannister, then make a song called *the bolton of the dreadfort*. When another family seems about to rebell, send them musicians to play that song.

Kick them out of the north, as the Starks did with the Blackwood. After the war is over, the rivermen will need all the hands they can get to rebuild that smoking ruin of a region they will be left with.

actually the consencus is that they probably did not rebel more then 2 times and possibly the references to the Bolton's rebelling may al be about just 1 rebellion.

1. Kill Bolton in some fancy way (burning, flaying, drowning, ....)

2. Mutilate Ramsay and make him my court jester

Wasn't there a house that did something like that?

I'm in favor of gruesome deaths for Roose and Ramsay, but going full Castamere on the whole house seems excessively Tywin. GRRM often shows us that the lordly houses are each a mixed bag of nuts, with good and bad throughout their history. The late Domeric Bolton, for instance, sounds like a decent guy (from the little we know of him).

Quick and clean Northern executions for Ramsay and Roose, exile any remaining Boltons and give the Dreadfort to House Poole.

I think killing the males and marrying the females was a common procedure.

Or I make them read and fall in love with the books, but spoil TWOW and never give them the last two.

I'd attaint them and send them to the Night's Watch. The people living among them would be given some leniency and expected to live under their new lords.

Which wouldn't be hard - I can't imagine the Boltons commanded much loyalty.

Roose and Ramsey lose their head. Rickon Stark is given the Lordship of the Dreadfort.

Strip them of their titles, execute the lord, send the heir to the wall on a short leash and distribute their lands amongst the other Lords and have the Dreadfort torn down to be reused as building supplies for lesser keeps. Whilst Castles shouldn't be wasted the Dreadfort is a symbol that needs to be wiped clean if only to break a cycle.

i think its robb fault, i don't think roose bolton is really the one to blame.i would simply take half of their land, but let them remain landed knights .

If I was the Lord Paramount of the North:

Kill Roose (if my bannermen have some fancy consensus on how to do, I'm all for it), flay Ramsay and maybe even do what John Doe suggested seems more than fair after all he's done.

Any cousins/uncles/possible heirs with the Bolton name have the possibility of total submission like the Wall, or a steward to some house, a chain about their neck is also welcome. The females I would marry to petty lords or maybe whoever holds the Dreadfort in my name. Assuming I didn't have the castle destroyed, which I would very much do depending on the circumstances.

I assume that "noble" guys like Jon Snow (should he be resurrected) or Stannis would call for a clean death. But the wroth of the rest of the Northmen might end up in the Boltons being flayed. I cannot imagine that they would be given the mercy to be allowed to take the Black.
