Ród Greyjoyów of Pyke is one of the Great Houses of Westeros. It rules over the Żelazne Wyspy, a harsh and bleak collection of forbidding islands off the west coast of Westeros, from the castle and island of Pyke. Their sigil is a golden kraken on a black field, and their house motto is "We Do Not Sow."[1][2] Members of the family tend to be attractive and well-built, with black hair.


The House descends from the Grey King, a legendary figure from the Era Herosów. The Greyjoys became the lords paramount of the Iron Isles during the Targaryen Conquest: after Aegon I extinguished Ród Hoareów, he allowed the Żelaźni Ludzie to choose who would have primacy over them. They chose Vickon Greyjoy and his line.[3] The Greyjoys have ruled ever since, from their formidable castle of Pyke. The Żelaźni Ludzie, however, did lose the Dorzecze, which were granted to Edmyn Tully and his descendents.

Thus relegated to their dismal homeland and constrained by the king's peace, the Greyjoys have kept themselves distant from the other Great Houses, rarely taking part in events on the mainland (which they call the "green lands"). At various times they have tried to return to their ancient practices of raiding the western coastlines, such as under Lord Dagon. Six years after holding aloof during Rebelia Roberta, Lord Balon Greyjoy led his own rebellion against the Żelazny Tron, declaring himself King of the Żelazne Wyspy. He was defeated, his fleet burned and his two eldest sons Rodrik and Maron were slain during the war. His last son Theon was given as a hostage and ward to Lord Eddard Stark and he again swore fealty to Ród Baratheonów z Królewskiej Przystani.

Since their revolt, the Greyjoys have been as insular as ever. With Theon living in the green lands, Lord Balon raised his daughter Asha as his heir. Balon exiled his brother Euron when he raped the rock wife of their brother Victarion, Lord Captain of the Żelazna Flota. Victarion was forced to kill his wife to retain his honor. Since then Euron has sailed the world aboard the Silence, reaving and pillaging, unwelcome in the Isles while Balon still lives. Another brother, Aeron Damphair, had been changed by his experience of washing overboard during the Battle of Fair Isle, and became a priest of the Utopiony Bóg.

Recent Events

Theon is still a ward of Winterfell nine years after the Rebelia Greyjoya. He remains there when Lord Stark rides south to become Namiestnik Króla. He views the Stark boys as younger brothers, and helps Robb save Bran's life when the boy is attacked in the Wilczy Las, but is rebuked for endangering Bran himself. When Eddard is arrested, Theon rides to war with Robb, fighting in the battles to capture Ser Jaime Lannister and break his siege of Riverrun.

After Lord Eddard is executed in Królewska Przystań, Robb is declared Król Północy by his bannermen. Theon goes to Pyke with Robb's suggestion that Balon name himself King of the Żelazne Wyspy and join the war against the Lannisters. Theon finds Asha as heir and is met with scorn from his family, who consider him softened by the green lands. Balon spurns the offer and declares himself King of the Żelazne Wyspy and Północ. He sends his kin to take the lightly-held Północ: Victarion captures Fosa Cailin in Przesmyk to prevent Robb's lords from returning to their seats, while Asha takes Deepwood Motte and Theon ravages Stony Shore along with Aeron Damphair and Dagmer Cleftjaw. Each attack goes as planned. Theon, however, desires to prove himself and goes on to seize Winterfell in a daring raid. There he begins a troublesome rule, at one point murdering two children that he tells the world are Bran and Rickon Stark. Asha tells him that the Żelaźni Ludzie will never hold landlocked castles, and leaves only a token force to help his occupation. Stark forces are arrayed to root him out, but they are betrayed by Ramsay Bolton, who captures Theon and sacks Winterfell.

Due to the Greyjoy attacks, King Robb is forced to abandon his war in the south to liberate Północern halls. While grieving for Bran and Rickon, he weds Jeyne Westerling and breaks his marriage contract with Ród Freyów, requiring a replacement match. Thus it is for Greyjoy-produced reasons that he marches north to free his home and to attend his uncle's wedding. He never makes it home, however, as he is treacherously killed at Bliźniaki. Meanwhile Balon King has died from a fall at Pyke, just a day before Euron Crow's Eye returns from his long voyage. Aeron calls the first Królewski Wiec in millennia, hoping that Victarion will succeed Balon to the Tron z Morskiego Kamienia. Euron is crowned, however, beating out Asha, Victarion, and several other claimants by promising to conquer all the green lands with the power of his Smok Horn. Aeron disappears, vowing to rouse the people against the "godless" Euron. Theon remains in Ramsay's captivity in the Dreadfort, where he suffers horrific mind-shattering torture.

Euron King escalates Żelaźni Ludzie commitment in the continental war by launching a massive attack on Reach, conquering the Tarczowe Wyspy and parts of the Arbor, and threatening Stare Miasto. Victarion leads the attack on the Shields, but Euron steals away many of his trusted men by granting them lands on the Shield Islands. Euron goes on to ask Victarion to sail the Żelazna Flota across the world to find Daenerys Targaryen to court her in his name. Victarion sets out, but secretly hopes to take Daenerys for himself. During his arduous voyage he rescues the red priest Moqorro, who converts him to the faith of R'hllor, supplementing his worship of the Utopiony Bóg. In Północ, Theon is released from the Dreadfort to perform a mission for Ramsay Bolton, who has warped the man's sense of identity and formed him into a broken creature. He is sent to Fosa Cailin to treat with the Żelaźni Ludzie garrison there, where he succeeds in getting them to surrender by promising safe passage. Ramsay reneges and flays the men alive. Theon recognizes Ramsay's wife, "Arya Stark", as Jeyne Poole and develops a tenuous rapport with her during the tense Bolton occupation of Winterfell. He reluctantly teams with Mance Rayder to free her from the castle; they escape but are captured outside by Mors Umber, who is now sworn to Stannis Baratheon. Meanwhile Asha has returned to hold Deepwood Motte, but was defeated and captured in a sudden attack by King Stannis and the Północern mountain clans. She is brought along with Stannis's army as he marches to the Siege of Winterfell. There she finds Theon alive and tries to ransom him from Stannis. The king refuses since the northmen want Theon dead, and so Asha suggests that he behead Theon himself before a heart tree, as Ned Stark would have done.
