stateofdissipation Posted September 10, 2014 Share Posted September 10, 2014 I will leave off Jon being younger than Robb... and the logical question as to why Ned would claim him to be younger and make him a bastard born to a married man.. but ok.. I will also leave off the pregnant upon the shore... Though I took that as one of the givens in the post i replied to rather than inventing it myself. We do not have months within years.... so using years is pretty pointless We do have known events and given times between them. Jon being born in 282 and Robb being born in 283--- means their ages are from 2 days to 728 days apart.... December 31 282 to Jan 1 283 or Jan 1 282 to December 31 283. Correct, we do not know if Robb was born during or after the war. We also do not know if Jon was born during or after the war. It depends on "thereabouts" the time it takes to get from KL to toj over Storm's End... and when the war was "over." We have an idea of how long it took Ned to travel to the sisters. It is a part of a journey that started at the Ayrie. Ned went to Winterfell to Riverrun, to the Stony Sept, to the Trident and on to King's Landing in "nearly a year." Ned's travel to the sisters took less than a year. The part of the journey to Winterfell is unknown... including how long Ned walked.--- anyhow... I did not mean to exclude Lyanna being in the north... after Brandon rode south because Rhaegar had abducted her... after Rickard had ridden to answer the charges against Brandon... and after Jon Arryn reported that Aerys had called for Ned's and Robert's heads.... and after Jon Arryn had called his banners... Though I am pretty sure I did not exclude that... i excluded a child conceived a year earlier from being a child that was conceived 8 or 9 months or thereabouts earlier.
