In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the monarchs of the Stark proto-kingdom centered around Winterfell itself called themselves the "Kings of Winter", back when the North was divided into over a dozen petty kingdoms.
Gradually, the Kings of Winter extended their hegemony over these other petty kingdoms, eliminating them or absorbing them through marriage, and uniting them from time to time in alliance to throw back wildling invasions, etc.
Their greatest rivals were the Red Kings of House Bolton, whose kingdom was centered around the Dreadfort on the eastern shore. The Starks finally subdued the Boltons and unified the North just around the time that the Coming of the Andals began, about 6, years ago.
As a sign of their new control over the entire region, they gradually shifted from calling themselves "Kings of Winter" to calling themselves "Kings in the North" around this time the phrasing is always "King in the North", never "King of the North".
They were still sometimes also colloquially called the "Kings of Winter" up until the Targaryen Conquest. The King in the North held all the lands of the North south to the Neck , where the ancient fortress of Moat Cailin threw back every invasion attempt by the southern kingdoms and, later, the Andals.
During the invasion of Aegon the Conqueror, Torrhen led a great host to the banks of the Red Fork of the River Trident , meaning to give battle, but after hearing tales of the Field of Fire and upon seeing the size of Aegon's host and the presence of his dragons , Torrhen realized his cause was hopeless.
Instead, he knelt and swore fealty to Aegon. Elsewhere, terrified crew members were up to their waists in water in the time it took them to scramble from their bunks.
One was trapped in her rapidly flooding room until she was able to shove aside a locker knocked over by the impact. Five decks above, Clarke forced himself to stay calm as he put on shoes and a parka.
He knew the crew would soon give the order to abandon ship. Alarm bells sounded, and loudspeaker announcements directed the passengers to the lifeboats on deck seven.
Six miles to the northeast, in the aboriginal settlement of Hartley Bay, Bruce Reece was awakened by the ferry's Mayday, relayed by the Canadian Coast Guard station in Prince Rupert on the marine distress channel, which northern communities monitor around the clock.
Within seconds, phones were ringing throughout the village of Men ran to the dock for their trawlers and skiffs, while women began preparing food and hot drinks, collecting blankets and warm clothes and heading to the community center to await survivors.
Reece had just fired up his ft. He had forgotten that his niece and her daughter were traveling on the Queen. He revved his hp engine and sped into the darkness.
In Victoria, the province's capital, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island, the Rescue Coordination Centre scanned for ships in the vicinity of the Queen.
They were lucky. While pulling up anchor, the icebreaker dispatched the Laurier 1 , a rigid-hull inflatable boat. Its twin hp outboard engines can generate a top speed of 45 knots, which meant the rescue craft could reach the scene in 45 minutes.

All except for Elizabeth Percy. Her family, the Mortimers, believe that her nephew should be on the throne instead- and she intends to do something about it.
Straight from the start, two things struck me about this novel: the strong female heroine, and the vividly-drawn historical world that we find ourselves in.
Of particular interest to me being Welsh! That all made for a fascinating backdrop to the action taking place, but of course that means very little without a compelling narrative.
The only problem is her fixation with getting her nephew on the throne. This is the whole crux of the novel- I know! Though I would like to have seen more of their relationship- it did tend to get drowned in exposition overloads and important meetings rather than letting us see much of them- it still went a long way to breathing life into the history tomes.
With gallons of warmth, humour and intrigue, this read was one that had me hooked until the end. For people looking for the next Elizabeth Chadwick, or Philippa Gregory, this is it.
The perfect summer read! Three word review: vivid. Jan 20, Sheila Craig rated it it was ok Shelves: historical-fiction. This was single-mindedly political and military history, but seen from the sidelines where most scenes were tell rather than show.

It would have been more interesting. As it was, it felt like a slog. Nov 09, Samantha Smith rated it really liked it. Slow start but a really interesting read I found this a little difficult at the start but then really got into it.
I thought Elizabeth was a strong character. Jun 03, Jeannie Zelos rated it it was amazing. History was a tough time for females, regarded as first fathers property, then belonging to husband, and for those like Elizabeth, with Royal blood, and connected to the current monarch they were his property too.
Politics back then was ever changing, those who supported the king could be traitor soon as the next contender the the throne wins through.
It was a time when ambition ruled, when the house name was all and Elizabeth has been brought up strong in the sense of the Mortimer claim to the throne, and genuinely believes her nephew s has the right to be king now that Richard is dead.
Henry is her cousin, and she believed his claim that he just wanted to reclaim his lands, taken by Richard, and is shocked when he breaks his sworn vows and deposes Richard.
For a while the Percy star is high with Harry and his father being supporters of Henry. Slowly though the usual cracks break through, Henry admires what Harry has done, commands him into battles, and yet the financing I adored Harry Hotspur as he's fervently known — he inspired such love and loyalty in his people, was very honest in what he believed, didn't thrown in his lot and change with the wind as so many did back then.
He and Elizabeth were a great couple, both strong headed, both ready to put their views forward, both brought up since babies with a certain destiny in mind, and supporting the family names.
They clashed, heatedly, repeatedly, but the making up showed how truly they were in love, how much they respected each other even when they didn't agree.
When Hotspur finally fell in battle I cried, even knowing it was coming, even though he died centuries ago. These characters felt so real to me, and their stories played out making me feel as if I was there with them, wondering what course of action was best next, what they could do to move things towards the destiny they believed was right.
Stars: Five, a wonderful read, transporting me back in time. Its my second Anne O'Brien novel, and I'm looking forward to catching up on some of the others.

When Henry of Lancaster usurped the throne from Richard II in , it was a far from amicable take-over of power, as it opened the country to the possibility of counter claims to the English crown.
Elizabeth Mortimer is married to Henry Percy, the heir to the earldom of Northumberland, better known in history as the volatile and impetuous 'Hotspur', and even though Percy's involvement in English politics results in danger and uncertainty, it is through Elizabeths Mortimer connection to royalty When Henry of Lancaster usurped the throne from Richard II in , it was a far from amicable take-over of power, as it opened the country to the possibility of counter claims to the English crown.
What then follows is a gripping story of politics, ambition and thwarted power which has its foothold firmly established in the unsettled atmosphere of a country which has been divided, not just by the political ambitions of people who merely wanted power for the sake of power, but also from those game players who truly believed that right was on their side.
Into this incredibly masculine world of control and authority, Elizabeth tries to make her voice heard and it is thanks to the skill of this talented writer that she comes to life in such a realistic and positive way.
All too often the important women of history are side-lined by their sexier and more powerful male counterparts, and yet, as is so often the case, the women who endured and who worked surreptitiously in the background often had huge influence on the way that events eventually played out.
The author writes with passion and authority deftly bringing medieval England alive in all of its convoluted glory. There are plots and counter plots, meetings with the Welsh Prince, Owain Glyn Dwr, and time spent at the spectacular Northumberland castles of Alnwick and Warkworth and through all of the political maneuverings, Elizabeth Mortimer comes across a determined and hugely intelligent woman who felt that she and her family had grievances aplenty against a king who was, quite simply, not listening.
That it doesn't bode well for Henry Percy is enshrined in history but what Queen of the North gives us so vividly is Elizabeth's interpretation of events as they unfolded during the momentous years between and Mixing historical fact with fiction is a difficult challenge especially as so little is documented historically about Elizabeth Mortimer and yet, the author has succeeded really well in bringing her entirely to life, and gives Elizabeth a clear voice which is as bright and distinctive as the woman herself.
Jun 29, Diana rated it it was ok. Difficult to get in to, then a tad disappointing given the exciting cover blurb. Navigating through complex histories with so many characters with similar names was never going to be easy but I felt this was rather flat and tedious and add some costume terminology that no one understands - to show off?
Jul 23, Ruth Harwood rated it really liked it. Wonderfully written and exactly what I'd expect from such an established writer!
I didn't know much about Hotspur and the Percy's before this aside from a few mentions in texts I've read, so this gave me an in-depth and realistic view of the bane of Henry IV life, and of his wife, whose rebellion also caused waves in the 15th century.
Absolutely loved the humanity brough to the characters and the events are interesting seen from a different perspective. Grrat reading xx. Emboldened, I grabbed more of her books only to loathe the very next one I read, The King's Sister and found the one after that, The Scandalous Duchess , only mildly better.
It was one with some trepidation that I picked up her latest, Queen in the North and ended up liking it.
I think my liking of this is impacted by two things. Plus Elizabeth comes to have a little sympathy for him. This is odd but understandable — it helps identify them consistently — and fairly small potatoes to me.
Her voice is mature and complex and her relationship with Hotspur, while always depicted as a loving, has ins and outs that keep it interesting while keeping their conflict is caused external events.
And her story closes in a way that proves it. After Tyrion Lannister convinces representatives of the Seven Kingdoms that her brother Bran deserves to be king because he has the least ego, Sansa steps forward to demand that the North remain independent.
And you'll be a good king. I thought maybe they knew somebody or befriended someone and went to their house. Maybe they were scared, maybe they were huddled down in a basement in the fetal position.
The most sensational part of the public narrative centred on speculation about what happened on the bridge that night. Investigations showed the ferry had failed to make a slight course correction while exiting Grenville Channel.
Blame fell on navigator Lilgert. The Crown argued Lilgert missed the routine turn because he was distracted by his ex-lover, the quartermaster with whom he was alone on the bridge for the first time since their relationship ended.
Both denied that had anything to do with the sinking, and Lilgert maintained he had changed course. What I was attempting to do was discuss other possibilities.
In some ways, Henthorne did go down. Throughout the first few months, even after their initial inquiries when they were pretty oppositional and hostile, they still told me they supported me.
First, he added, B. Ferries said it was because of operational requirements, but when it was pointed out that B. Ferries was actively recruiting new captains, it said it had lost confidence in Henthorne.
One of B. Ferries gives masters all the responsibility without all of the authority. It also argued that by allowing things like music to be played on the bridge, which could be heard on radio calls between the Queen of the North and Prince Rupert, he created too relaxed a working environment.On March 26,at a Lg Ulm of metres 1, ftQueen of the North was found by a manned submersible craft.
