House Frey first made itself known during the Great Migration and they were unlike basically every other German that entered Europe during this time they were a member of the attacking Andals, and they only entered Europe after they begin raiding the coast line and after a particular raid they were stranded in Europe. With their numbers now stranded in Europes mainland they had no chance to find a way back to Swedan as they became hunted by Teutons who wanted revenge on them for the raids. They continued to flee south for a long time until they reached the Riverlands and it would be here that they would remain for a time. Under the rule of the Riverlords they became angry with the disrespect that they felt in being second fiddle and thus when they were given the command by the Riverlords to take the island off the coast of Koenisburg they were delighted. When they finished taking the island they threatened, bribed, and coerced the other forces that had joined the invasion into joining with thier new rule and abandoning the rule of the Riverlords. They named their new land the Frey Empire, and they came to become a dominating kingdom when the Emperor of Frey died, and his young son Walder Frey took control. Walder Frey had very distinct views on things and he transformed the entire island into a playground where only House Frey and a few of their loyalist houses had any kind of lifestyle worth truly living. Over the course of his life he has fathered dozens and dozens of children and from this House Frey may be the most numerous house in Europe.

Founding of Anthor

| Founding of Anthor |
Father it is time. You must come with us. This is the only way the Kingdom can ever truly heal.
Following the crowning of William Lovie III. as the King of Lucerne many drastic changes were going on in the Kingdom of Lucerne, and one of these was the idea of the necessity of a port in eastern Lucerne to be the center of the navy of Lucerne. This eastern location would also allow them to combat the increasing piracy that was coming from Yairs (Region) and in time William wanted to incorporate them into the Kingdom of Lucerne. William also wanted to expand the control of the Lucernian Kingdom in the east with the feeling that most of the region was either of dubious loyalty or underpopulated the region of Anthor was chosen for the site of the new port. The Order of the Red Dragon had the funds and materials needed to begin construction of the Lucerne navy but no great port existed, and Lannistane was deemed to dangerous a location to do it at since the Lannisters couldn't be fully trusted. William would send Varian Anthor his family and vassals eastward where they would found a port on the island now to be named Anthor. The Port of Eastfall would become the beacon of the eastern section in a part of the land where there was little Lucernian presence. The vast province of Winterfell was somewhat broken up to make way for the larger state of Anthor and the many provinces within it, and this was compromise of later giving House Starke land north of Anthor (Later would become Hentwood). The lands that became Anthor would be rich in fishing, and had some mining, but the main operations of the house would be built around Eastfall and the trade that would grow from being the center of eastern trade for the Kingdom of Lucerne.
The Port of Eastfall's construction would be the responsibility of both House Anthor and the Order of the Grey Dragon of whom had already worked magic reconstructing Tree Hill. The Port of Eastfall was constructed over several months and during this time House Anthor was busy travelling around the new state making sure that everything was going according to plan, and during this time they were met by members of House Starke who arrived in the near built port of Eastfall. During this time Leonardo Mevinlo would arrive in the port with nearly two hundred engineers and thousands of workmen from the west. Leonard had been tasked with completing the port as quickly as possible and that the Order would fund a basic design on its own, and that House Anthor would be responsible for any expansions on the plan. Finding Varian very much interested in growth he would be tasked with quickly adding to the construction several extra docks, and a large expansion of the Anthor esates.
The Starke's were led by Robb , and Brandon Starke while accompanied by Jon Snow and his friend Samwell Tarly in order to meet with the new Noble House that existed on their doorstep. Kevan Ambry also arrived in the area in order to make sure everyone knew that he was the first in line for the lands north of Anthor that were being promiced, and he arrived around the time that Keven, and Tyrek Lannister also arrived in order to see what was happening and how it would affect Castamere. Candice Anthor was placed in charge of leading the visiting nobles around and making sure they were kept happy, and she did this extremely effectively to the point that Keven Lannister bid her whether she would be open to a marriage to young Tytos Lannister. She would politely refuse but Jon Snow was listening in and watched as she eyed him afar, and after this she would confront Jon on evesdropping. She would kiss him, and the two would begin to take it farther until he stopped her telling her that his heart was with another. Following this the whole group would group together to meet with a large party of Frey's that her father had bid come to the port and see the scope of what was planned in order to further relations under the overal command of William.
Candice Anthor, and Jon Snow would continue to spend time together and she continued to attempt to seduce him, but his father's teachings about honor made him unable to do so. She would go to the port when the Freys arrived with Jon Snow beside her, and as the Freys visited it seemed clear to the Lucernians that the Freys were after a marriage. After discussions over the female Frey's that they brought with them went well it was believed by all those that were there that everything was going according to plan. After the Freys returned with Roslin Frey the most pretty of the girls that had been sent the Lucernians would make the mistake of not bringing Tytos Lannister to the meeting (Keven had been commanded not to by Tywin Lannister knowing that it would make them think it was Robb Starke they were offering) and this led the Frey's to believe that Robb was being offered. When this was made verbal there was laughter from several Lucernians who saw it as a joke that the Freys would believe Robb Starke would marry someone like a Frey. Black Walder Frey would take out his sword and fighting nearly broke out before his father Stevron Frey grabs ahold of him and controls the situation. The Freys leave after this with parting words from Lothar Frey being very threatening to Robb Starke of whom they feel greatly insulted them.
The Frey's would return to their ships following the argument and despite attempts by many including a near marriage proposal created by Candice Anthor and Stevron Frey the other Freys were intimidated by Black Walder Frey and refused to listen to the heir of Frey in Stevron Frey. On the route back from Eastfall it is known that during the night everyone went to bed, and the next morning the boat had its anchors up, and many on board were dead including Stevron his wife, and the captain. Everyone believed that Black Walder had done it, but unable to prove it and unwilling to be next on the chopping block noone mentioned it, and the story returning to Frey was that the captain had gone insane and killed Stevron and his wife.
Trouble in Highport
Alongside the other forces it would be Robin Highport that travels to Eastfall in order to take part in the celebrations for the new city alongside his friends. Shortly before they leave Fogtown his sister Lara Highport comes down with a sickness due to her pregnancy with their second child and thus stayed behind while Robin Highport left Fogtown by boat traveling to Eastfall. Arriving in Fogtown he finds his friends forcing him to go to the newest local brothel and after a confrontation with Percival Lott he is convinced that the only way to keep his relationship with Larra a secret is to follow their lead and thus he agrees to sleep with a whore at the brothel, and unknown to him the whore he is paired with is Vanessa Cleef of whom is in the process of being tricked by several noble girls into believing this will make her popular. Vanessa Cleef would travel to Anthor for the same reason as Robin, and accompanied by her family there was much thought to finding the fourteen year old Vanessa a future prospect for a husband, but in this regard she was extremely uncomfortable and was not looking forward to this. Entering the room where he believes he will sleep with a whore he finds Vanessa Cleef of whom convinced that she will popular if she sleeps with Robin decides to play the part as best she can, and so desperate for popularity is Vanessa that she is able to convince Robin that she is a whore at the brothel, and he eventually after having a connection with her sleeps with Vanessa.
Meeting the Hearth Druids
The Truth Comes Out
William watches as Leven walks away from the tent and then lets Elsa into his tent where once inside she shows him the letter. Reading the letter it is written by an unknown writer but details how the Druids of the Hearth are corrupted by evil and mean to simply distract Lucerne so that there true plans can move forward.

Following the confrontation between Hosteen Frey, and Robb Starke the decision was made by Hosteen that no longer would he accept the excistence of the Starke's, and was going to do anything to make them pay for what he believed they had done to him and his family. As they returned on the ship to the Trident the boats would be stopped by Walder Frey II. or Black Walder of whom met with Lothar, and Hosteen briefly before going on board the boats and hanging several members of the Frey's including Perwyn Frey of whom was deemed too loyal to the Lucernians. After the murder of Perwyn Frey they would wait on the water, and were met by Emmon Rivers the bastard son of Emmon Frey the King of the Orange Forks, and he would vow that his father was now prepared to turn against Gemma Lannister and regain the Orange Fork for the Frey's. With this in mind Emmon Rivers would leave first to return to his father where he silently begin preparing to murder his oldest half brother in Cleos Frey of whom frightened him due to the loyalty he knew his father held for him.
Returning to the Trident he met with his father, and was forced to anwser for the death of Perwyn Frey, but was able to alongside Lothar Frey convinse their father that Stevron had been poisoned by the Lucernians thus further pushing Walder into hatred towards the Lucernians. It was at this point that the Frey's decided to allow the Lucernians to enter the Island of Frey so that they could gather some of them for the purposes of letting them believe they were finding a place willing to be the friends of Lucerne. Choosing the Kingdom of the Blue Fork as the site of the Lucernian embassy as the loyalty of the Blue Fork was always in question and this would give them a good excuse to wipe them out. Using this as an excuse they would decide to send Walder Frey II. as the diplomat to meet with the Lucernians, but it was made sure that he was going to be on his best behavior or else all of this might fail to come together.
The Invasion of Radin
Main Article : Invasion of Radin
| The Invasion of Radin|
This was a mistake from the first moment we set foot on this island.
Port of Stormwind it was the decision of the Freys that neutral parties needed to be removed near them or else the Lucernians were going to take them over and give them more of a power base near them. The largest of the neutrals near the Empire of Frey was the Kingdom of Aran that was based north of them on the island of Radin. Jared Frey would lead a group to Radin where he attempted to create a union between Aran, and Frey and he was met with great kindness by the members of House Osnard of whom wanted peace with the Freys. As the meetings though continued Jared's drunkenness came through and he was increasingly rude towards the leadership of House Osnard, and this created arguments during the meetings which drastically undermined the conversation. Olyvar Frey would go out into the gardens of the Twinvale palace disgusted over what Jared was doing, and while in the gardens he would be met by Meera Osnard of whom he would talk to for some time before Athos Osnard came into the gardens telling her they had ended the meeting as Jared had passed out from drunkenness and while Olyvar would apologize and Athos would accept this and say goodnight taking Meera with him. Tytos Frey and several others had left looking for the room of Meera and had very dark plans. Olyvar would secretly go to Athos Osnard of whom was at his post at the gatehouse and warned him of what was happening and it was while warning him that screams rang out and running together the two would make there way to Meera's room where they found her naked on the floor of her room bruised and bloody, and before they could do anything Olyvar watched as Athos was knocked and and then turning to the attacker he found Tytos of whom wouldn't say a word instead just struck Olyvar in the head knocking him out as well. The Freys would be forced to flee and during this flight several guardsmen and civilians in Twinvale were killed, but as the Frey's were looking for this anyway this was exactly the outcome that they wanted, and fled on their boats back to the Trident. In the morning discovering the true extent of the damage the Osnard's would demand retribution for this act, but instead they were sent insults and also forced to deal with the fact that they discovered that the Freys had taken several prisoners with them during the fighting of their escape and Jared had instead of bartering for their lives instead had them executed and there heads sent back to Twinvale.
When William Lovie III. became the king of Lucerne and following the diplomatic fallout of the meeting in the |
Following the rape of Meera Osnard, and the retreat of the Freys from the island the Freys would nearly immediatly begin massing forces to invade the Island of Radin where they would take by force the Kingdom of Aran. Jared Frey demanded the command, and would be given it as Walder Frey barely thought anything of Aran and was far more focused on the Lucernians travelling into the Divine Lands where he would send several of his more capable children and relatives. At the same time as Jared was planning the invasion of the mainland of the Kingdom of Aran it would Walder Frey that also would command the invasion of the Dutchy of Grey Brann within Aran, and in this regard he would send Jared Frey would amass an army of some seven thousand men, and was carried by the Frey Fleet to Radin where the Aran fleet would not engage them due to the vastly superior numbers, and quality of the Frey fleet in comparison to their own. The one exception to this was a brief naval battle between three ships commanded by Rovin Tikkanen on the side of the Kingdom of Aran, and six ships commanded between Patrek Frey, and Halden Anister but shortly into the battle Halden Anister would cause the sinking of one of the Frey ships and then fired on the two remaining frey ships. This entire action was watched by Rovin Tikkanen and his son Risto with great excitement and following Halden Anister sinking the last of the Frey ships they would approach Rovin Tikkanen's boat and he told Rovin that some of the Frey's coming ashore mainly those close to Olyvar Frey were not bad people. Following this Rovin would return to the port of Gwendale where he would send a raven to Twinvale telling them of the Frey infighting. Landing on the island Jared spit their force into two with two thousand men going west and landing further down under the command of Olyvar Frey while the five thousand remaining would travel directly for the main city of Aran in the form of Twinvale where they would lay siege to the city.
Olyvar Frey would capture a castle that stood separating the western half of the island from the eastern half and he garrisoned it with some eight hundred men, and then left it under the command of the capable John Urdentrot while he took the remaining 1200 men and made his way towards Twinvale. In the east Jared Frey led his five thousand men westward in a direct line against the city of Twinvale, but as he moved he would lose some 1500 men after he would insult the Lady of House Acorn and then executed Travis Acorn of which led to the House Acorn forces pulling back only a few days into the attack. Moving on despite this they would be stopped when they met the forces of the Kingdom of Arran of whom arrayed against them with some four thousand men, thus slightly outnumbering the now depleted Frey army. Jared was advised by his council to pull back and call for more men from the boats as the Freys could call on thousands more easily, but instead Jared refused this and called for battle to be made immediately. The battle would be a complete route as Jared Frey launched the attack, and the forces of House Frey were gaining victory after a brilliant victory on the left flank by Olyn of the Trident, but Jared would launch himself into battle attempting to gain the honor of winning the battle, and was struck down by an arrow to the head and died on the spot. His son Tytos Frey attempted to rally the troops but, his death would signal a full scale retreat as the center collapsed. The Frey army under Olyn of the Trident would retreat in as good an order as could be expected but still only half the original army was able to make it back to the boats.By this point Olyvar Frey had laid siege to Twinvale, and he surrounded the city as best his army was capable but he was forced to constantly deal with a small force of three hundred men led by Athos Osnard, and Eddard Meedgard of whom were doing hit and run attacks on his forces. Continuing the siege while he waited for reinforcements he would be surprised when he gained some six hundred additional men when House Yille led by Hanzal Yille would arrive at his camp. Hanzal and his sister Samantha Yille would tell Olyvar about how poorly they had been treated by House Osnard and why they knew this was the perfect moment to switch sides and while Olyvar felt they were up to something he had no choice and thus House Yille would join the Frey side and reinforce the siege at the southern part of the city. Days passed, and despite attempts to communicate with Twinvale his calls for meetings met with nothing, and his scouts reported to him that a large force was heading towards them from the south. Olyvar attempted to get House Yille to join with them for the battle, but learned that House Yille was only making sure Olyvar didn't retreat before the main army of Arran arrived. Olyvar would be seen as an honorable man by the Yille commander Hanzal Yille and thus when the main army of Arran arrived they offered him surrender unlike the other Frey's who they had butchered without quarter, and he was given two days to think about the offer. Osric Osnard, and Meera Osnard the raped member of their family to speak to him, and she would talk to him with complete honesty. Telling him that the castle was already under siege and was nearing surrender, he knew his other option then was to simply fight and die here. Voicing this option Meera would convince him otherwise, and he would surrender to the forces of House Osnard thus ending the Invasion of Radin in utter defeat to the Frey's.
