    Ned shouldn't have allowed Robb and Theon to become so close

    Theon was the heir to a Great House. Even as a hostage, it’s expected that he’ll get an education.
  2. No he wouldn’t have and most women in the Erie’s would have been happy to marry him.
  3. Robert tried to get Cersei to go hunting a lot early in their marriage. And given the way that he complained about Cersei’s wheelhouse, I doubt that he would have taken issue with her riding a horse. In the early years of their marriage, Robert was forever imploring her to hunt with him, but Cersei had always begged off. His hunting trips allowed her time with Jaime
  4. Possibly, but it’s not that black and white. Ned remembered Robert’s first child as well, a daughter born in the Vale when Robert was scarcely more than a boy himself. A sweet little girl; the young lord of Storm’s End had doted on her. He used to make daily visits to play with the babe, long after he had lost interest in the mother."
  5. Yeah... no. Robert was the only one that put any effort into that marriage.
  6. "Is Robert still abed?" Tyrion asked as he seated himself, uninvited, at the table. His sister peered at him with the same expression of faint distaste she had worn since the day he was born. "The king has not slept at all," she told him. "He is with Lord Eddard. He has taken their sorrow deeply to heart." "He has a large heart, our Robert," Jaime said with a lazy smile. What an asshole.

    Yeah? Okay. Don’t mind me, but I’m just going to leave this here.

    Why are you leaving out the fact that Ned called Robert a peerless warrior in his prime even though he fought Arthur Dayne?

    Jon Connington and Robert never met? Jon was directly sworn to Robert. Robert defeated him in combat with a sword after cutting through half a dozen men including a famous knight while wounded. And the only Kingsguard that you can really argue are better than Robert are Hightower, Jaime, Dayne and Selmy. Even then, only Selmy really has the feats for it.

    Bells and battle followed, and Robert emerged from his brothel with a blade in hand, and almost slew Jon on the steps of the old sept that gave the town its name. Robert came out of hiding to join the fight when the bells began to ring. He slew six men that day, they say. One was Myles Mooton, a famous knight who'd been Prince Rhaegar's squire. Robert Baratheon had been an indifferent jouster, in truth. During tourneys he had much preferred the mêlée, where he could beat men bloody with blunted axe or hammer. Roberts more versatile than most. He was good with knives too.

    Jaime himself says that he can beat Dayne. Robert has better feats than anyone in the series with the exception of Barristan. He certainly deserves to be at or near the top of these lists.

    Rhaegar May have been a little faster and more agile, but he was less skilled and less intelligent. At least when it came to fighting.

    Better in what way? They’re both probably on the same level.

    I like to break things down in to Tiers. Bottom Tier (Untrained): Tegular people with little to know training or skill in combat. Samwell Tarly and the lowborn recruits at the wall in AGoT for example. Low Tier (Competent): This is for people who aren’t exceptional, but are competent fighters. This Tier is for lords and mediocre knights. Ned, Robb and Theon would be here. Mid Tier (Exceptional): Exceptional fighters would be here and some of the better knights. This is where I would place a Bronn and Jorah Mornont. High Tier (Elite): They aren’t legendary warriors, but they’re still some of the greatest fighters in asoiaf. The lesser members of Aerys Kingsguard are here along with Rhaegar. Top Tier (Legendary): The best members of Aerys’ Kingsguard find themselves here. Arthur Dayne, Barristan Selmy, Gerold Hightower along with Robert Baratheon and a handful of others.

    SPOILERS: Rant and Rave

    I’m pretty sure it was confirmed that’s $ years has passed in the show (presumably one year way season). Arya is a woman now. She was not at the start of the series. I agree that some things are weird with the shows timeline, but several years have passed now. Plus, the Starks err already older in the show than they were in the books. Jon and Robb were both about Theons age when in the books they were about 4 or 5 years younger. Sansa was probably about 13 or 14 at the start of the show and 18 or 19 when she married Ramsay. Joffrey was 17 IIRC in season 3 and Sansa was probably no more than 2 years younger than him.
