The Kingslayer (302)
He was intimate with his twin sister...
As a teenager he swore an oath he would unlikely be able to keep...
He broke the oath he made not long after he made it...
He murdered his King and offered no explanation for why he did so...
He pushed a young boy out of a tower window...
He was labeled Kingslayer by his peers as an insult but embraced the title until it became legendary throughout Westeros...
He is Ser Jaime Lannister and he is the truest knight in The Realm.
WARNING! FOR HERE BE SPOILERS!!!
SPOILERS INDEED FOR ALL PUBLISHED BOOKS IN #GRRM'S A Song of Ice and Fire AS WELL AS ALL TELEVISED EPISODES OF HBO'S Game of Thrones...
Born amidst salt and smoke- Just off the Long Island Expressway- Beneath a bleeding star...
The Royally Official Fictional Analysis of Fictional Characters from Game of Thrones continues with a long, mostly-focused look at Ser Jaime Lannister, the former Lord Commander of The Kingsguard, The Savior of Kings Landing, and the truest knight in all of Westeros.
From his arrogant visit at Winterfell and his mishaps and miscalculations in The Whispering Wood, all the way to the loss of his sword hand and the adjustment of his mindset to fit the current conditions of The Realm, The Princes That Were Promised cover Jaime's entire narrative through Game of Thrones.
He is Seannie-Wan's favorite fictional character of all-time. He is fast becoming one of John's favorite characters. How can #TPTWP justify this considering all the unfathomable actions listed above?
The Princes That Were Promised are John and Seannie-Wan.
Join them as they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.
