[requested on anonymous] sansa stark/sophie turner narrating Histories and Lore : Northern Alliances to House Stark
the North deserved to be wiped clean of the Boltons, yet my ancestors decided to spare them after their defeat, because they believed that the North couldn’t afford to fight itself any longer. time soon proved them right. when the Andals swept into Westeros, they obliterated all the kingdoms of the First Men, except the North. each of the southern kingdoms fought the invaders on its own, but the North fought as one.
