According to legend, Night's King lived during the Age of Heroes, not long after the Wall was complete. He was a fearless warrior named the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch. Later, he fell in love with a woman "with skin as white as the moon and eyes like blue stars". He chased her and loved her though "her skin was cold as ice", and when he gave his seed to her he gave his soul as well. Night's King brought her back to the Nightfort and after the unholy union, he declared himself king and her his queen, and ruled the Nightfort as his own castle for thirteen years.
During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities were committed, of which tales are still told in the north. It was not until Brandon the Breaker, the King of Winter, and Joramun, the King-Beyond-the-Wall, joined forces that Night's King was brought down and the Night's Watch freed. After his fall, when it was discovered that Night's King had been making sacrifices to the Others, all records of him were destroyed and his very name was forbidden and forgotten. It is likely this led the lords of the north to forbid the Night's Watch to construct walls at their keeps, ensuring the keeps would always be accessible from the south.
Maesters are skeptical of the legend, thinking the Night's King's corpse queen was possibly a daughter of a Barrow King from the barrowlands. Some fan theories link her with the Others because of her description.
A Storm of Swords
While on his way north, Bran Stark recalls stories told to the Stark children of Night's King and the Nightfort by Old Nan, servant in Winterfell. She said some people believe Night's King was a Bolton, a Magnar of Skagos, an Umber, a Flint, a Norrey, or a Woodfoot. However, she identifies Night's King as a Stark of Winterfell and brother to the King of Winter and suggests his name was Brandon.

TIMELINE OF MAJOR EVENTS
(This timeline attempts to lay out the most important points in the history of Westeros and Essos, based on dates and information given in the novels and supporting material.)
2. Age of Heroes
2.2. ca. 8,000 BC or 6,000 BC
2.2.3. The Night's King: Not long after the Wall is complete, the thirteenth Lord Commander of the Night's Watch breaks his oath. He is seduced by an Other woman from beyond the Wall, declares himself the Night's King, and rises in rebellion with the Watch as his personal army. During the dark years of his reign, horrific atrocities are committed, of which tales are still told in the north even after several millennia. The Starks of Winterfell and the King-beyond-the-Wall, Joramun, join forces to defeat the Night's King and thus restore honor to the Watch. This is the same Joramun who also finds the Horn of Winter, which he is said to use to awaken giants from the earth.

Il 2019 sta volgendo al termine, l’anno che ha segnato la fine di @gameofthrones , che a noi sia piaciuta oppure no. Vogliamo salutare l’anno e la serie tv che ci ha caratterizzati per tanto tempo così, con i tre personaggi più iconici.
Dopo Cersei, continuiamo con Jon Snow, sempre pronto a combattere con la sua spada, Lungo Artiglio.
WINTER IS COMING. 🐺

Silly Power Point also killing my vibe - we had the whole house changed to matt black but this one was hidden behind a cupboard 🤪
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
It shall not end until my death.
I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children.
I shall wear no crowns and win no glory.
I shall live and die at my post.
I am the sword in the darkness.
I am the watcher on the walls.
I am the fire that burns against the cold,
the light that brings the dawn,
the horn that wakes the sleepers,
the shield that guards the realms of men.
I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch,
for this night and all the nights to come.

A collection of eight #Scotch#whiskies to represent the great houses of Westeros and the noble and courageous Night’s Watch. Whichever house your allegiance lies with there is something in this set for you. Whether you live for fire like the Mother of #Dragons remain loyal like the #Starks or fight tooth and nail for power like the Lannisters, there is a #whisky to represent the spirit and essence of each House. The distilleries chosen for these whiskies are equally prestigious and have characteristics that align with the Houses of Westeros and the Watchers on the Wall.
House #Lannister is represented by #Lagavulin known for its powerful smoky flavours, House #Stark is represented by #Dalwhinnie , whose whiskies are forged in the cold of the North, and House #Targaryen is represented by #Cardhu , whose history boasts strong #femaleleaders in a male-dominated society. House #Tully is represented by #Glendullan ,who used the power of water to create stunning whisky, House #Tyrell is represented by #Clynelish , whose floral tones and smoky kick represent the #Golden Rose of House Tyrell, and House #Baratheon is represented by Royal #Lochnagar , whose reign outlived that of the #Baratheons but whose whisky just as lively and full of character as the fallen House. House #Greyjoy is represented by #Talisker an island distillery which faces the harsh seas and survives, and the #NightsWatch and represented by #Oban, who face the barren seas between the West Highlands and the Islands of #Scotland#whiskycollection#singlemalt#dram#scotch#malt
