|Spouse||Lady Margaret Karstark|
Bennard Stark was a member of House Stark and the second son of Lord Benjen Stark and Lady Lysa Locke. He married Margaret Karstark, with whom he had three sons; Benjen, Brandon and Elric Stark.
When his elder brother Rickon Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, died in 121 AC, Bennard ruled the north as regent during the minority of his lord nephew, Cregan. When Cregan came of age in 124 AC, Bennard was slow to surrender his power. Relations grew strained between Bennard and Cregan as the young Lord of Winterfell chafed under the limits imposed on him by his uncle.
Finally, in 126 AC, Cregan rose up against his uncle, and imprisoned Bennard and his sons, taking the rule of the north into his own hands.
