“The north remembers”: is there a Grand Northern Conspiracy?

38 147
Is there a Grand Northern Conspiracy to restore the Starks to power? Is there a plot in Winterfell against the Boltons? Is Stoneheart working with Maege Mormont, Galbart Glover, and Howland Reed? Will Jon Snow be King in the North in the books?
This video contains spoilers for the Game of Thrones books and show, including preview TWOW chapters.

What I take away from the books is this; despite the wolf pack being scattered, the Starks are the most successful family in Westeros.

With one or two exceptions, loyalty to the Starks among their vassals is bone deep, not the fear that has cowed the Westerlands, the intrigues and marriages the Tyrells have had to engage in to keep HIghgarden , but loyalty to the point that the Manderly, the Flints, Glovers etc. are willing to put their lives on the line for a family which has lost everything.

We may see a battle similar to the battle of the bastards in the books with the only difference being that instead of men of the vale, the other northmen support jon. Or stannis might just beat ramsay and get beaten by jon later

GRRM's wife has stated that R+L=J is too simple and too obvious for George. Based off her statement, i buy into John being Ashara's son. While it's more likely that if Jon is Ashara's son, then he would be Brandon Stark's son, i still cling to the hope that Jon is Ned's boy.

Honor works fine as long as whoever you swear loyalty to is winning. I think the way the various houses turn and turn again is more true to the real word. In the end only the Starks are loyal to the Starks, until they start winning. When Jon, Sansa, Arya, and Bran are reunited suddenly they seem powerful again and more than capable of taking care of themselves. That’s when Baelish suddenly shows up with the Vail army, a guy who always hedges his bets. IMO the only thing wrong with season 8 was Tyrion having to convince Jon that Dany was nucking futz, and he almost missed his window to do away with her; and Jon being a Targaryn ended up being a shocking reveal but nothing more, other than ruining his romance with Dany and pushing her the rest of the way over the edge.

The title is off. It comes from the show, where "the North remembers" is very much a stark-loyality phrase. Check asearchoficeandfire though. It's there only four times. Firstly, by Robb, about the Karstarks, meaning family loyality and unity, but against the Starks (him). Then, Wyman Manderly says it, after talking about the Freys and the RW, not at all about the Starks. Then, Barbrey Dustin says, it, also about the RW and the Freys, while smiling "a thin, feral smile" at a Frey. And lastly, in TWOW, Stannis says it, about the times the Boltons and the Ironborn hurt the North. It's not at all a phrase of affectionate loyalty to the Starks. It's purely vengeful (which of course again is often only the mirrored side of loyalty). (Preston Jacobs pointed all this out once)

If the tullys marched north and the northerners marched south and slaughtered the freys then their combined armies would likely outnumber the boltons, also the arryns are possible now as the boltons do not have lannister support they would be more likely to help the starks as they know they are safer with starks as allies instead of boltons as enemies

The book conspiracy is so much more interesting than the shows way of doing it, they still couldve done a huge battle of the bastards style battle but had more content from the political mess of the north

A very uplifting video, it’s nice to think that in the scummy world of Ice and Fire there is respect, love and loyalty for the Starks who did a good job overall

​@Ti Bot they arent that much loyal. That's a stereotype you get by watching the show.The manderlys are largely in it for vengance against boltons for death of their son at red wedding. Lady dustin and karstarks hate house stark. The flints also dont care much about who controls winterfell. The skagosi too hate winterfell and infact all northerners. This hate is mutual and they(skagosi) now have rickon.The only houses I could say with certainity are loyal to starks to the bone are the reeds,the umbers and the mountain clans all of whom are minor players unlike manderlys and lady dustin and even skagosi who have rickon and a fresh army.
Ti Bot

@Sidak Bhatia I thought it unlikely because if the Northern houses are so loyal, I doubt they would put one unwilling brother against the other (I imagine both Jon and Bran would step back).

Most of this can still happen with Jon dead. He is not one of those they are fighting for to be Lord of Winterfell.

So to sum it up:
Every noble family between the Neck and the Wall fucking hates the Bolton's and Freys, and are waiting for a Stark to show up before showing the Boltons just how fucked they are and how much the North remembers.

well i guess with that new sytem in Westeros its most likely that Bronn and his family will rule. He has Highgarden which is the most valuable city regarding on foods, also he is master of coin. So he now can intimidate the nobles at new elections to not send them food or bribe them with money to vote for him or his sons.

And that isn't even taking into account the Frey civil war and the Vale intervemtion that's going to happen in the Riverlands. This plus Littlefinger's conspiracy to make Sansa Qeen of the North will only make the whole damn thing a mess from which only the White Walkers can profit.

There are 3 different conspiracies 1. River for Jon 2 Manderly and co for Rickon 3 Northern clans using Stannis for Bran... I think will finish as Bran come back from the North, Rickon dies tragically and Jon becomes king through ironically Lady Stoneheart.... Martins genius shines really bright through the Northern plots...

@Dias he uses clips from the show also for other videos which are only about the books. The video was released after the Starks took Winterfell back( in the show) which is also said in the video. Everything is book stuff, what already happened in the books and what is likely to happen
Dias - 4 महीने पहले
@Loren I Lannister if none of these had anything to do with the show, trust me he would never use any clips for the show. Also my comment was not criticism towards his videos, it is more of a criticism to how stupidly the show ended, with all these loose threads.

Should of been 3 more seasons on the show and they should of switched the politics up into the north like this. And a better white walker plot line!
