Breedy Posted July 26, 2011 Share Posted July 26, 2011 Why does everyone assume the Kingsguard was there to either keep her from running away or to prevent Ned and Robert from re-claiming her.I will submit the following....She was put in the Tower of Joy and had the Best of the Kingsguard to protect her from Aerys. From what I can remember we don't know when Lyanna went to ToJ with Rhaegar. Aerys seldom left King's Landing but he went to Tourney at Harrenhal, which is explained in the books. Perhaps, with that paranoia in mind, Rhaegar left the Kingsguard with orders to protect Lyanna and his child at all costs.Another possibility about "promise Ned" is Lyanna knew about an important plot point in ADwD and somehow Ned found out about that too.
