What are the ages of the Stark children at the beginning of A Storm of Swords?

Jon, Robb, Sansa, Arya, Brandon, and Rickon.

  1. Robb - 15 years old (Born 283AL)
  2. Jon Snow - 14 years old (Born 283AL)
  3. Sansa 11 years old (Born 286AL)
  4. Arya - 9 years old (Born 289AL)
  5. Brandon - 7 years old (Born 291AL)
  6. Rickon - 3 years old (born 295AL)

All information taken from this site. It's been a while since I read the series, but I do remember some birthday celebrations in the book, which would explain the mathematical difference (theoretically according to year subtraction, Sansa should be 12).

    Ha, I've been watching the show and reading the wiki's. Suddenly I understand why John Snow acts the way he does. – QueueHammer Aug 9 '13 at 19:09

    I have not seen the show, but from what I understand it is markedly different from the books. – JohnP Aug 9 '13 at 19:11
  • @QueueHammer In the show all the children are several years older than in the books. – Dima Aug 10 '13 at 2:23
  • @Dima That is understandable given the scenes they had to shoot. (Robb and Talisa, Jon and Ygritte, Sansa and Ramsay) – Aegon Sep 28 '16 at 8:27

The Stark children are about 3 years older in the Tv series. In the premiere episode, Catelyn says that 10 year old Bran is too young to witness an execution.

  • Cool! But what are the ages of the others (besides Bran)? – Adamant Aug 3 '16 at 18:03
  • But the TV show is not the books - there are a whole slew of artistic license deviations between the two. – Jesse Williams Aug 3 '16 at 19:10
