Willam Stark was the Lord of Winterfell and the head of House Stark during the reign of King Maekar I Targaryen. He was the second son of Lord Beron Stark and Lady Lorra Royce.[1]

History

Willam became Lord of Winterfell after the death of his older brother, Donnor Stark.[1]

Willam first married Lyanne Glover and had one child with her, Brandon.[1][5] Lyanne died while giving birth to Brandon. Nan came to Winterfell to be Brandon's wet nurse. Brandon died at age three of a summer chill, however.[6] Willam took Melantha Blackwood as his second wife, and together they had two children, Edwyle and Jocelyn Stark.[1][5]

When King-Beyond-the-Wall Raymun Redbeard went over the Wall, Lord Willam called his banners and marched with Lord Harmond Umber. On the shores of Long Lake, the two forces met. During the battle at Long Lake in 226 AC, Willam was killed and beheaded. His younger brother, Artos, avenged him by slaying Raymun.[4]

Willam was succeeded as Lord of Winterfell by his son, Edwyle.[1] Willam is buried in the crypts of Winterfell.[7]
