The Hornwood issue

Recommended Posts

One of the most important secondary plots in the North storyline has been the question of the lordship and succession of House Hornwood lands, after lord Halys Hornwood and his sons were killed at the Battle of the Green Fork in large part of Roose Bolton, leading to a succession crisis with the other powerful neighouring houses seeking to marry Lady Donella Hornwood while Bran Stark proposed to make Halys' bastard son Larence Snow the heir to his father, until Ramsay Snow forcibly took over their lands and married Donella Hornwood before imprisonning her and having her starve and eat her own fingers, surely after having flayed them.

Ser Rodrik arrested Ramsay, but it was only a short break as he had Reek executed in his stead, and later took back control of the Hornwood lands and had himself made lord by his father after Roose killed Robb Stark at the Red Wedding, and was named Warden of the North by Tywin Lannister.

With the Battle of Ice coming, and House Bolton doubtlessly going to be defeated and taken down either by Stannis and/or by the returning Stark childre, the issue of the succession is inevitably going to ressurface and Stannis or the Starks will have to choose a new lord for Hornwood to settle this issue once and for all.

Who do you think is going to inherit Hornwood and its lands ? Do you think that Larence Snow will be legitimized and become the new lord of Hornwood ? Do you see someone else inheriting these lands ?

Whom support will Larence and other potential candidates will benefit from ? Also do you think that the men of Hornwood will play a role in the Battle of Ice and of Winterfell as revenge on Ramsay for what he did to their lady and to them since taking over ?

Stannis wants to legitimize Jon to consolidate North, he can also legitimize Larence as “a favor” to Hornwood men who has  already joined him. Stannis has nothing against bastards as can be seen by him placing Rolland Storm as the commander of Dragonstone garrison, even after the stunt he pulled with Edric Storm.

The Stark siblings, as shown with Bran in ACOK, are also sympathetic to Larence's cause due to Jon, and there's also the support of the Glovere who took him as a ward, and possibly of the Manderlys too.
