King Robert I Baratheon with a wine cup in hand

King Robert I Baratheon is the first king of the Seven Kingdoms from the Baratheon dynasty. As the heir to Storm's End, Robert was send to the Vale to be fostered by Lord Jon Arryn. There, he grew close to his foster brother, Eddard Stark, and came to regard Arryn as his second father. Robert inherited Storm's End in 278 AC, after his parents drowned in Shipbreaker Bay. He arranged a betrothal to Eddard's sister, Lyanna Stark, having fallen in love with her beauty. During the tourney at Harrenhal in 281 AC, Robert felt insulted when his cousin, Crown Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, crowned Lyanna as his queen of love and beauty after winning the joust, passing over his own wife to do so. Matters grew worse a year later, when Rhaegar apparently kidnapped Lyanna. King Aerys II Targaryen ordered the heads of Robert and Eddard, following the brutal executions of Eddard's older brother and father. The two young men were in the Vale, where Jon Arryn refused to give them up, rising in rebellion instead. Robert became one of the figureheads in the war that followed, and towards its end proclaimed his intent to claim the Iron Throne. Following Aerys' death during the fall of King's Landing, Lord Robert Baratheon of Storm's End ascended the throne as King Robert I Baratheon.

Following Lyanna’s death in the aftermath of the war, Robert married Cersei Lannister, ensuring the future support of House Lannister. Their marriage was not a happy one, however. Robert remained in love with Lyanna, even years after her death, and insulted his wife by whispering "Lyanna" to her during their wedding night, setting the tone for their further marriage. Over the course of his reign, the young, handsome, powerful, muscled warrior changed into a fat, red-faced drunk with dark circles underneath his eyes. Leaving the task of ruling his kingdom mostly to his small council, Robert spend his time hunting, hawking, feasting, drinking, and whoring. He already had fathered two bastards before he became king, but his frequent whoring resulted in the births of many more. Read more...

Feature quote

  • “Laws are a tedious business and counting coppers is worse.” —Robert Baratheon[1]
  • “I am a man. I am kind to my wife, but I have known other women. I have tried to be a father to my sons, to help make them a place in this world. Aye, I’ve broken laws, but I never felt evil until tonight. I would say my parts are mixed, m’lady. Good and bad.” —Davos Seaworth, to Melisandre[2]
  • My people hold that there is no shame to be found in the pillow house. In the Summer Isles, those who are skilled at giving pleasure are greatly esteemed. Many highborn youths and maidens serve for a few years after their flowerings, to honor the gods.” —Chataya[3]
