Feb 20, 2017  The Crownlands: House Velaryon, I guess. The Stormlands: House Swann? We don't know much but the marcher lords seem to be the most powerful houses militarily and the Swann's; situated on a river mouth and (having looked at the map) more land than the others; would seem to be the most powerful economically too. The Reach: Hightower's, by far. On the eastern coast of Westeros lies the Stormlands, one of the mightiest of the Seven Kingdoms and famed for it's warrior tradition. Though the ruling House of Durrandon fell with the arrival of Aegon the Conqueror, it has since been ruled by House Baratheon, descended from Aegon's own half brother.

You would never be guessed that such a vision is only a sheath hiding the blade of Shipbreaker Bay, with it's treacherous tides, unpredictable gales and sharp rocks lurking just below the water's surface. The storms that blow through the bay water the kingswood and rainwood, two of the great forests of Westeros, and they give the Stormlands their name.' ―The Stormlands is one of the nine constituent regions of the.

It is located on the south east coast of the continent of, on the shores of the, south of and north of. The Stormlands are traditionally ruled from the castle of, formerly. They are so-named for the savage and frequent storms from the Narrow Sea that batter the coast. It was originally a sovereign nation known as the Storm Kingdom, until united Westeros under his rule.When Aegon Targaryen and his army invaded Westeros during the, Aegon sent his bastard half-brother to secure the Stormlands.

House Baratheon continued to rule the Stormlands for the next three centuries, up to the time of, when it became the royal family and split in three branches; controlling the capital and the Crownlands, controlling and nearby islands and remaining in the ancestral lands.After briefly seceding from the sovereignty of the under and then early in the, it presumably yielded once again following the. Due to the legal extinction of the Baratheon line at the death of King and the ascent of to the throne, the region is left leaderless and thus in an ambiguous status and a power vacuum.

This power vacuum, however, doesn’t last forever, for has legitimized as a true Baratheon, restoring the house’s former power over the Stormlands.born in the Stormlands are given the surname Storm. Contents GeographyThe Stormlands are located on the east coast of Westeros, relatively near the in across the Narrow Sea. They are largely separated from Dorne to the south by an inlet of the Narrow Sea known as the Sea of Dorne. In the north, separates the Stormlands from the bulk of the Crownlands, though the Crownlands actually extend south of the bay, in a small strip that includes the northern parts of the Kingswood, as well as the peninsula of Massey's Hook. To the west, the Stormlands share a long border with, which extends all the way from south of to almost reach the capital city of in the north. The vast watershed of the River, which dominates the Reach as it flows west, does not extend into the Stormlands, indeed the watershed of the Mander is essentially what marks the border between the Reach and the Stormlands.The main portion of the Stormlands is composed of two peninsulas, one in the north and one in the south, interrupted in the middle of the coast by the indentation of Shipbreaker's Bay.

The castle seat of Storm's End is located in Shipbreaker's Bay, on the northern side. The northern peninsula terminates in Massey's Hook (which is part of the Crownlands), while the end of the southern peninsula is known as Cape Wrath, because it is the target of the worst storms coming off of the Narrow Sea.To the southwest, the long chain of the form a barrier between Dorne and the rest of the continent, particularly the regions it immediately borders, the Reach to the west and north-west, and the Stormlands to the northeast.

A large salient of the Stormlands extend southwest of the main coastal area, which includes the northern portions of the Red Mountains. Called the ', this mountainous region is home to marcher-lords who rely on the rough terrain to defend the Stormlands against incursions from Dorne or the Reach.The extreme northern end of the Red Mountains, past the Dornish Marches, extend from southwest to northeast across the base of Cape Wrath, terminating around the inlet of Shipbreaker's Bay. This makes the separation between the northern and southern peninsulas of the Stormlands even more distinct, and separates the Rainwood in Cape Wrath from the Kingswood in the north.Several large off-shore islands are located off the coast, which are considered part of the Stormlands and sworn to Storm's End. The largest by far is the island of.

What are they? Let's start from the North. Right now, as far as I know at least, Bolton's are number one. I think most likely number two are the Manderly's, since they still hold the only city in the realm. Karstarks are also up there and the Umbers. In The Riverlands, Tully's are still number one and number two.Freys, I guess.

Brackens also have profitted from being on the side of the crown, but they are still behind the Freys in number. In The Vale it's rather obviously house Royce.

Westerlands.that one is pretty much unclear. The Westerlings? Cleganes are surely not it. In the Crownlands it must be.Stokeworth's, since Bronn marrying Lolys Stokeworth is considered a good match for him. Rosbys are also strong since they and the Stokeworth's supplied food to KL.

Stormlands.at the moment, it seems to be the Swann's, although Baratheons are still going strong but are not IN the Stormlands. Anyway, they would be the strongest house anyway. In The Reach it's the Hightower's no doubt. And in Dorne, the Yronwood's.

If we're going by house strength at the start of A Game of Thrones:The North: Boltons, but the Manderly wealth is certainly nothing to sniff at. I think their 'outsider' status is really the only thing keeping them from taking the title. And I'm sure the Umbers and Karstarks would bridle at them not being #1, but the Boltons were the toughest house to subdue and have certainly amassed quite the rep.The Riverlands: I would think the Brackens and Blackwoods would be in contention, but the Freys by sheer number probably are the number two house. Maybe the Mallisters would also be possible?The Westerlands: If we're ignoring cadet branches of House Lannister, the Marbrands and the Westerlings seem like good picks.The Crownlands: Again, if we're ignoring cadet branches of House Baratheon (in this case, Stannis's branch), probably the Velaryons.The Iron Islands: House Harlaw.The Vale: House Royce.The Stormlands: The Dondarrions, maybe? I know Beric is the last heir of the house but I believe there is a pretty sizable force there, and their reputation does precede them.The Reach: The Redwynes and Hightowers are likely duking it out for this spot.Dorne: House Yronwood.

I should be tired of pointing it out by now, but can't let it stand uncorrected.House Manderly was the strongest Northern vassal House by a significant margin, at the start of the series. They have the largest population in the North, have the largest army and have the most money.Consider that House Bolton would have sent at least 500 cavalry South with Robb, and had another 600 left at the Dreadfort. Placing their cavalry strength at least at 1100.

And if they sent 700-800 cavalry South with Robb, as would appear likely, then their total cavalry strength is at around 1300 or more. And yet the Manderlys are above that, even now. Add to that their larger population, and their total army size would be significantly higher than that of the Boltons. Um.they are number one, not? This is about second strongest families.House Lannister of Casterly Rock are the Great House of the Westerlands. However, House Lannister of Lannisport are a separate cadet branch.

They just happen to have kept the same name unlike say the Karstarks who have differed from their Stark cousins.I have no issue with names already being suggested, but what about House Lannister of Darry (at least by the end of ADWD)? Would they be considered a powerful house of the Riverlands? They're new, the members of that house are young, but do they not have forces and wealth sheerly because they're Lannisters? At the start of Game of Thrones, I'd say it goes like this:The North: House Manderly; they have the most wealth and the largest overall force.The Riverlands: House Frey, by sheer size.The Vale: House Royce, obviouslyThe Westerlands: House Lannister of Lannisport, as a lot of the other families seem to be on a similar level to each other (Brax, Lefford, Crakehall and Marbrand, for example) and none coming anywhere near the level of the Lannister branches.The Crownlands: House Velaryon, I guess.The Stormlands: House Swann? We don't know much but the marcher lords seem to be the most powerful houses militarily and the Swann's; situated on a river mouth and (having looked at the map) more land than the others; would seem to be the most powerful economically too.The Reach: Hightower's, by far. They have the money, the political position, the Citadel is right there, the Faith seems to be mainly based between there and KL, they can raise more troops than any two noble house's from any other region can combined. While the Redwyne fleet is formidable, the Hightower's take this one.Dorne: Yronwood, almost certainlyIron Islands: Harlaw (close relations with the Greyjoy's and strong in their own right) or Goodbrother (who control the largest island and can most likely raise the largest force).

Add to that their larger population, and their total army size would be significantly higher than that of the Boltons.People consider the Boltons the second strongest house because they have been the Starks' rivals for thousands of years.Common sense and evidence says that the Manderlys are the second most powerful House after the Starks(as far as I'm concerned the Starks still rule the North)because of their wealth, city, population and land.

Stormlands

I would suggest you first agree to common terms and conditions to answer that question.Do we discuss the strength at the beginning of the series or at the end of book 5?What does strength mean? Military power (army and navy)? All together?Without a precise question you'll get a lot of different answers!A side question: are the Lannisters of Lannisport a Great House in the Westerlands with bannerman of their own or more or less landed knights ruling only the city proper?

They probably have quite a lot of landed knights and petty lords sworn to them.
