Idk if he had more of his own bannermen to back him i think Ned would have been succesful, Ned had just started living in KL he had almost no support. If he had Stark, Arryn, and Tully bannermen with him i doubt he would have trouble with it.
I would have to go for Tywin Lannister but Ned is a pretty good choice as, although we already know that he will be useless in the south with all the back stabbing and scheming.

or Bran with Bloodraven like powers to know every possible thing going on in the realm.

Tyrion is a better person than Tywin, but can be ruthless when need be.

I completely agree oh and does Rhaegar count because he would har been a good king too
dont necessarily like the guy, but Tywin Lannister. a king has to have a certain amount of ruthlessness/reason above emotion, yet he is also openhanded with his supporters.

Best King + Best Claim + Hot Redhead + Davos

Ned would have to destroy the game to be successful. I have no doubt the realm would prosper under him- proper justice would be done, with lords actually caring for their people instead of using them just to gain power and wealth

Yea this is the best situation
Ned with Stannis as hand (or Justicar) to clear away the corruption of the court.

It didn't suit Ned being hand of the king because that didn't give him the power to stop the Game of Thrones and all its scheming but as a king he would've been great, just like he was a great Lord of Winterfell.
An older Robb would've been great too, a lot like Ned but more ambitious I would say. He was good as he was - easily the best of the 5 Kings - but not great enough for awful circumstances and disputed power.
After that Jon Snow, Davos and Doran Martell. They're all a little more pragmatic and willing to compromise but still good men who'd try to do what's best for their people. Doran doesn't seem as much of a natural leader and we don't know if he has any skills as a general, Davos isn't as educated but again isn't really a general and Jon just has the same issue as Robb, an older Jon could be a great king.
