John Picacio Ned Stark.jpg

Eddard Stark, also known as Ned, is the Lord of Winterfell and the secondborn son of the late Lord Rickard Stark. Having been married to Lady Catelyn Tully since 283 AC, Ned has five children by her: Robb, Sansa, Arya, Bran, and Rickon. Ned also has a bastard son, Jon Snow, born during Robert's Rebellion.

Eddard was fostered in his youth at the Eyrie by Jon Arryn, whom he regarded as a second father, together with Robert Baratheon, whom Ned saw as a brother. When Eddard's sister Lyanna was supposedly kidnapped by Prince Rhaegar Targaryen, Ned's older brother Brandon went to King's Landing for justice, but was executed together with their father, Rickard, on the orders of the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen. When Aerys next demanded the heads of Ned and Robert, Jon Arryn refused him and raised his banners in revolt. The war ended with Robert on the Iron Throne, though Ned arrived too late to save Lyanna, who died in his arms at the tower of joy.

Ever since Robert I's coronation, Ned Stark has served as the Warden of the North, keeping the king's peace. In 298 AC, however, Jon Arryn dies and Ned is asked by Robert to replace their former foster father as Hand of the King. Suspicious about Jon's sudden death, Ned accepts, moves to King's Landing, and starts to investigate.

Eddard is known for his unwavering sense of honor and justice. His family finds him kind and loving, although some consider his reserved personality a sign of coldness and disdain. Read more...

  • “Once they figure a way to work a dead horse, we’ll be next. Likely I’ll be the first too. ‘Edd,’ they’ll say, ‘dying’s no excuse for laying down no more, so get on up and take this spear, you’ve got first watch tonight.’ Well, I shouldn’t be so gloomy. Might be I’ll die before they work it out.” —Dolorous Edd[1]
  • “Let me give you some counsel, bastard. Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.” —Tyrion Lannister to Jon Snow[2]
  • “Three corns and one roast raven. Very good, m'lord, only Hobb's made boiled eggs, black sausage, and apples stewed with prunes. The apples stewed with prunes are excellent, except for the prunes. I won't eat prunes myself. Well, there was one time when Hobb chopped them up with chestnuts and carrots and hid them in a hen. Never trust a cook, my lord. They'll prune you when you least expect it.” —Dolorous Edd to Jon Snow[3]
