This post will be talking about Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark, from the HBO television show Game of Thrones (and prominent in the source material, George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.) If you don’t know who Ned Stark is, just know that he’s awesome and a big damn hero. Then go read the books and/or watch the show.

Big damn hero? I’m just an ordinary man, trying to do right by his family. And his king. And the realm. And the North. And my dead sister. And honor. And my [redacted] Jon Snow. There are probably some other competing interests that I’m forgetting.

This post will be talking about HBO’s Game of Thrones, but will also be talking partly about the source material A Song of Ice and Fire. If you’re only up on one, and are planning on reading or watching the other one day, it’s up to you if you want to have any of that experience spoiled.

Specifically, I’ll be talking about Aegon Targaryen, the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia of Dorne. Show watchers might recall the story that Aegon was killed along with his sister Rhaenys and their mother Elia. (Oberyn, Elia’s brother, brought this fact up a lot.)

Rumor has it that Gregor “the Mountain” Clegane crushed the infant Aegon’s skull.
