In Game of Thrones S08E04 Gendry was named the Lord of Storm's End.

Where is this place? In Westeros? In the northen part or the southern part?

Does this place have any history behind it? I don't think I have seen this place on the opening credits or in the show.

Storm's End is the ancestral home of the Baratheon's. At the beginning of Game of Thrones, it was held by Renly Baratheon.

Storm's End is in the southern half of Westeros, as shown on the below image: Westeros Map

As a note, we have seen Storm's End before. This is the castle that Davos smuggled Melisandre into to birth the smoke baby back in season 2.

    Do be fair, we didn't really see the castle of Storm's End. The birth takes place in some kind of sewer outflow or something like that, perhaps beneath the castle. – Todd Wilcox May 6 at 20:18

    I think the most prominent mentions of Storm's End so far have been Stannis's frequent complaining - that he defended Storm's End in a great siege during Robert's war ("We ate the horses, then the cats - I never liked cats..."); then after the war, Robert gave it to Renly not him, sending him off to Dragonstone, where he had been brooding bitterly ever since. – user568458 May 7 at 6:10
  • Might also be worth adding that Storm's End is a seat (capital) of one of the seven kingdoms, "the stormlands", like Highgarden, Winterfell, Riverrun, Casterly Rock etc. – user568458 May 7 at 6:15

We still haven't seen Storm's end in Game of Thrones:

Unlike Dragonstone, which once belonged to the Targaryens before Robert Baratheon seated his brother Stannis on its stone throne, Storm’s End has so far gone unseen in Game of Thrones. Located in Shipbreaker Bay, to the south of King’s Landing and Blackwater Bay, Storm’s End has been the seat of Baratheon power ever since it was captured by Orys Baratheon, a commander in Aegon Targaryen’s army, which invaded Westeros hundreds of years before the events of Game of Thrones. It is an intimidating fortress, which held strong against a siege by House Tyrell during Robert’s Rebellion, which overthrew the Targaryens and put the Baratheons on the Iron Throne.

The last lord of Storm’s End was Renly Baratheon, who died all the way back in Game of Thrones Season 2, in the early days of the War of the Five Kings. Since then Storm’s End has been unoccupied by a Baratheon lord, its ownership uncertain after Stannis, the last of the Baratheons was killed attacking Winterfell.
