Angalin Posted February 16, 2012 Share Posted February 16, 2012 Last few posts of the previous thread:I think GRRM was pretty specific about Dany being born 9 months after the sack of KL and Jon being born 9 months before her.I think Cat's thoughts about Ned show how paranoid she was - Ned would have had to slept with someone just before their wedding night or within a few weeks of it. She thinks it's Ashara Dayne, and she was nowhere near Ned during that time. Starfall is a long way from Riverrun and Dayne wasn't at the wedding.George has said that Jon was born 8 to 9 months or thereabouts before Daenerys. Combine this with other clues in the books, and we may infer that Jon was born around the Sack or up to a month after it.Regarding when Ned returned to Winterfell, I recall that in one of Catelyn's chapters she states that she and Ned were only apart for a year. Assuming that she may be rounding up or down, I'd say Ned probably returned to Winterfell between three to six months after the Sack. I believe Jon arrived in Winterfell before Ned did, so I imagine that Ned sent him along to Winterfell while he made a pit stop in King's Landing to reconcile with Robert.Which might be yet another subtle hint - why split company and send the child to Winterfell, when he comfortably could have taken him to KL?
