Song of Ice and Fire Robert Baratheon

When Robert Baratheon ended the War of the Usurper, by killing Rhaegar Targaryen at the Trident, he gained a vast kingdom but lost dearly his beloved Lyanna Stark, sister of his good friend Eddard Stark. The Throne of the Seven Kingdoms was not easy for Robert, considering he was more warrior than King. He surrounded himself with smart people but they had a hard time convincing what to do. Marrying Cersei Lannister, to gain their family loyalty, did not make it easier. She did manage to bear him three children. Robert was full of merriment, and spent the money merrily bringing the kingdom into dept. When his HAND (kind like a proxy King) died suddenly, Robert went to the one person left he could trust, Eddard Stark of Winterfell. Eddard traveled back with Robert to become his HAND, a decision he felt way more of duty than desire. He found out Cersei’s children were not from Robert but from Jaime Lannister, Cersei’s brother. Eddard threaten to go to Robert with this news, however Cersei made other arrangements. Having Robert killed during a hunting trip, she also setup Eddard with false charges that led to his beheading. This led to the War of the Five Kings.

Having the motto “Ours is the Fury”, you see Robert raging war against the Targaryens “Blood and Fire”, fighting for Lyanna Stark. The stag horn helmet symbolized his house sigil. The bear cloak symbolizes him in later life. After years of merriment, Robert had become a big round man looking more of a bear. In the background is the dragon walls Robert sees in his mind that must be broken down to rescue Lyanna . The castle is his target, the white knight to rescue his princess.

Character is from the SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series by George R.R. Martin. This internationally popular series may become a hit TV series as well. Watch the HBO pilot episode next month. Get more information off the internet, the cast has been well put together.

Could I use this image to go along with a song I'm releasing? It's about Robert Baratheon, it's called The Seed Is Strong

This must have been What Robert was like When he killed that Tarley boy.

Robert in his hay day was a hell of a warrior I truly wished he had gotten Lyanna. I honestly think Robert would have if at least TRIED to be a better king for Lyanna. His whoaring is what bothered me most I honest to the seven wish he would have saved Lyanna and tried
to have been a better king than the sad drunk he was.

This is great! I literally feel for Robert when I see this. Lyanna in the background makes his rage here palpable, but also quite sad.
Yeah, king Bobby B! You did a good job of portraying him as he was when he was swole.
I love this. The technical aspect and design is perfect, but the way it captures Robert's emotions and especially his anguish (which often goes ignored by all those R+L lovers) is fantastic.

ours is the fury!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

technically Cersei had 3 children, Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen, not 2. Actually Cersei had a child early in her marriage from Robert but aborted. sorry, i'm a stickler for GoT facts
