Rhaenys_Targaryen Posted January 18, 2015 Share Posted January 18, 2015 I think Barristan's Early Life section needs to be changed a bit. It currently reads: Barristan was named to the KG by Hightower yes. And Hightower heard his vows But Jaehaerys is the one who gave him the cloak I'm not sure if it's just currently awkwardly worded but I think it should be noted somewhere in there that Jaehaerys himself gave Barristan the cloak. Because my reading of what's written down currently makes it sound like Hightower did everything and Barristan was only accepted into the KG during Jaehaerys reign, whereas Jaehaerys actually bestowed him the cloak that made him a KG due to him personally having done a service to the realm. I had always taken that last quote to mean that it had happened on Jaehaerys' orders.. The World of Ice and Fire does not clarify, nor does the app, as far as I am aware. We could change it into Barristan was named to the Kingsguard at the age of twenty-three and swore his vows before Ser Gerold Hightower, when King Jaehaerys II Targaryen bestowed the white cloak upon him. ?
