Willam Stark was a Lord of Winterfell and head of House Stark during the reign of King Maekar I Targaryen. The second son of Lord Beron Stark and Lady Lorra Royce, Willam married Lady Melantha Blackwood, with whom he had two children, Edwyle and Jocelyn. He also married Lady Lyanne Glover and had one child with her, Brandon. It is unknown which of the two marriages occurred first.
When King-Beyond-the-Wall Raymun Redbeard went over the Wall, Lord Willam called his banners and marched with Lord Harmond Umber. On the shores of Long Lake, the two forces met. During the battle at Long Lake in 226 AC, Willam was killed and beheaded. His younger brother, Artos, avenged him by slaying Raymun.
