Jamies capture in Whispering Woods
Posted 07 June 2012 - 11:52 AM
I know Robbs forces surprised them etc but its during the actual battle that has me wondering. The only account we have is that Jamie went straight for Robb when he realised the battle was lost and cut down several of Robbs bannermen and that Theon was close by to him (which might have been just Theon exaggerating his own deeds)
I always imagined he was dragged down by sheer weight of numbers as nobody gets the credit for defeating him in combat. While certainly not undefeatable (he is unhorsed several times in jousts and in one ends up looking like a complete fool when his helm gets stuck on his head) I would imagine anyone that defeats the Kingslayer in combat while in a battle would boast about it afterwards?
Any other theories/ideas?
