dragontamer Posted July 19, 2012 Share Posted July 19, 2012 Well, the only likely candidates are people involved in the confrontation with the three squires. Of those, Brandon and Ned can be eliminated, since they were both adults and not small of stature. Howland can also probably be eliminated, since as a crannogman he wouldn't have known the first thing about riding horses. So that leaves Benjen and Lyanna. As I said before, there really is no reason to discount Lyanna, at least none that would not also discount Benjen. In addition, there are several hints that point toward Lyanna, including the several references to her great prowess as a rider, and Ned's reluctance to tell the story to his children. There is also the fact that Lyanna's being the KotLT would explain a number of things, including how Rhaegar met and fell in love with her, whereas Benjen's being the KotLT would explain...nothing, really. Based on these facts, I have to conclude that Lyanna is the most likely candidate for being the KotLT. What reasons do you have for picking Benjen over her?I have said them already but one more time won't harm. A boy can mimic better the voice of an adult man rathen than a girl. The physical strenght, if Benjen was no match for the Knights then Lyanna was even a poorer one, so if it comes to the two of them I believe he has better chance. Benjen must be skilled, he became the FR of the NW.I pose this question again, when Rhaegar 'kidnapped' Lyanna, where was she? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
