Marshall of the Northmarch
Marshall of the Northmarch is a title once held by the head of House Osgrey; the Osgreys defended the northern regions of the Kingdom of the Reach.
According to Ser Eustace Osgrey, House Osgrey were Marshalls of the Northmarch for a thousand years before Aegon's Conquest. During the reign of Gyles III Gardener, King of the Reach, Ser Wilbert Osgrey defended the Reach when Lancel IV Lannister, King of the Rock, invaded the realm. The two nobles slew each other in combat.
Eustace claimed it was the Field of Fire during Aegon's Conquest where the Osgreys began to dwindle and diminish, until they were no more than landed knights bound in fealty to House Rowan.
For a thousand years before the Conquest, we were the Marshalls of the Northmarch. A score of lesser lordlings did us fealty, and a hundred landed knights.
