I am a Disney Princess unless Winterfell needs me shirt now available. GREETINGS MY LORDS AND LADIES. On this post, I am going to be telling all of you the history of the castle of Winterfell. How it was built, what is in the castle and at the end of it, I will tell you how I believe the battle of Winterfell should go. So after all this time, let’s get to work. According to legend, Bran the Builder built Winterfell and ruled as the first King in the North. It even said that he had the aid of giants to help build his castle. But the truth is, the castle took several years to build. And once it was completed, more was added to it. That takes several generations.

One thing you need to know that makes Winterfell different from most of the other castles that belong to great houses, is that Winterfell has no natural defenses. Take Casterly Rock for example. Casterly Rock has natural defenses. It’s very high up. Any invading army, would have to try and attack from the front. Of course, you could always try going in through the sea, but you would have a really difficult time scaling the cliffs unless you knew the secret passageways. The truth is, Winterfell was built where it stands because the ground there has natural hot springs that keep it warm throughout the coldest winters. So they most likely built it to keep the hot springs to themselves.
And in those days, House Stark weren’t the rulers of the North. They were one of several other kings/queens that ruled over kingdoms in the North. Their rivals were the Barrow Kings, the Marsh Kings and of course, the Red Kings of House Bolton. Because they were always constantly at war with one another, the Starks had more walls built around the castle. I am a Disney Princess unless Winterfell needs me shirt. The outer wall reaches 80 feet high and the inner wall is 100 feet high with a wide moat between the two walls. There are guard towers on all of the walls. The outer wall has guard turrets and the inner wall has more than 30 watch turrets.

Winterfell has four gates. The way to the main gate takes you through Winter town. During the summer, the town is pretty much abandoned except for a few people. But come winter, it becomes one of the biggest settlements in the North. And because it’s close to Winterfell, it also shares its natural hot springs allowing the people of the town to keep warm all winter long. But if you don’t want to go through the town just to get into the castle, Winterfell has three other gates. Hunter’s Gate leads directly to the Wolfswood, where hunters can go hunting for a game and provide food for their families. East Gate leads directly to the Kingsroad. Battlements Gate is it gate that leads from the inner wall but doesn’t go through the outer wall. It’s where men can go if they need to switch places and guard different sections.
