Robert has asked Ned to go to King’s Landing and serve as his eyes and ears, to help him run the kingdom and keep him informed about what’s happening there.Check Price on Amazon
Robert Baratheon, now King after overthrowing his own brother (who had killed their father to take the throne) has gathered his family, including Ned’s wife Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), to celebrate Eddard becoming his Hand. But that night Eddard receives a message from Varys (Conleth Hill), Master of Whisperers for the king, requesting a meeting. In a brothel in the city Ned learns that the previous Hand of the King (Jon Arryn) has died suddenly and there are rumors that he was poisoned by the Queen’s twin brother, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Ned heads north to King’s Landing with his daughters Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya (Maisie Williams), leaving his eldest daughter, thirteen-year-old Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), in Winterfell under the supervision of his bastard son, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). While Jon Snow is training with his sword master, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) arrives at Winterfell to keep an eye on things for his younger brother and sister Cersei and Jaime.
Who was the Night King?
The Night King is one of the White Walkers, an ancient race of Emos who live in the Lands of Always Winter north of the Wall, which is a barrier that keeps them and their armies out of Westeros.
According to legend, the Children Of The Forest created the Night King and his fellow White Walkers during a war against the First Men. They were originally small creatures but grew bigger when they tasted human blood. The Children used obsidian to create dragonglass to fight them off but some escaped and headed northwards beyond the Wall.
The Night King’s army (the Others) was defeated during the Long Winter by House Stark led by Brandon Stark, later known as Bran The Builder (Isaac Hempstead Wright). Bran used his powers as the Three-Eyed Raven to create reality-bending Weirwood trees that turned most of them into wights. Bran then had to sacrifice himself in order to become a human again and close a gap in reality created by the Children Of The Forest.
