Ghost's Shadow Posted May 13, 2014 Share Posted May 13, 2014 I doubt that's the conclusion you can draw from that, Suzanna. Weren't we told that Brandon probably did have a few bastards? Ned is an exception to the Starks (low wolfsblood, apparently), rather than the norm. There's of course bastards, and there's acknowledged bastards. We know of at least a Brandon Snow (not mentioned on it, too far back?) Perhaps some other angle to view it in: why would the Citadel know of every Stark bastard out there. Those who are mentioned might have done something to get seen by the Citadel? We don't know yet. To conclude that there's not been a Stark bastard in so long is pretty naïve. Do women who marry into the Starks e.g. even know how many bastards their husbands have sired, if they're paying for them, etc.? Women might not have wanted to know.
