In ‘Game Of Thrones’, the most despicable act ever done was the massacre at the Red Wedding. Jon Snow is credited for avenging what happened at the Red Wedding.
After dishonourable treachery, Arya stark avenged pretty much everyone for the death of Robb Stark. However, Jon Snow is the one who is credited for avenging the Red Wedding. Find out why.
What Is Red Wedding?
The Red Wedding was a massacre that took place during the War of the Five Kings arranged by Lord Walder Frey as revenge against Robb Stark, ruling King in the North, for breaking the marriage pact between House Stark and House Frey.
Despite displaying an exceptional proficiency in military talent, Robb is ultimately betrayed and murdered at the wedding of his uncle Edmure with Rosli Frey, by the treacherous Walder Frey and Roose Bolton, all under discreet command of Tywin Lannister.
The most heinous and dishonourable act ever perpetuated in over 1000 years against Northerners was the Red Wedding Massacre. Roose Bolton and his troops were instrumental in the massacre at the Red Wedding. He himself stabbed Robb. A lot of Northern Lords were killed too.
How Did Jon Snow Avenge The Red Wedding?
The result of the red wedding was that the Boltons became Wardens of the North by Royal decree. Now, the Boltons no longer exist as Lords or Wardens of the north. Jon Snow and Sansa took back Winterfell and destroyed House Bolton after winning the ‘Battle of Bastards’.
The other Houses of the North have pledged fealty of their own free will. The whole premise of the North is that they refuse to allow outsiders dictate to them who will lead them. The Stark Family has ruled the North for thousands of years. This is also the reason why, by unanimous consent, they are seen as the Wardens or Kings of the North.
Jon then became the awaited Stark Heir. After sitting with the Lords of the North, he also became The King in the North. Jon was named the new King and was nicknamed the White Wolf. This is how the Red Wedding was avenged by Jon Snow without killing anyone who caused the massacre.
