Song of Ice and Fire Robert Baratheon by DubuGomdori Song of Ice and Fire Robert Baratheon by DubuGomdori
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.

I am proud to say this piece did get featured here news.deviantart.com/article/11… by :iconbozack: . If you haven't checked out her DA page you should. She is very active and can feature you too on top of having some fantastic photographs.

Very honored to have this artwork featured:

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.

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.

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

Great picture!!!! That's how I imagined a young Robert Baratheon. The clothes and the helmet are amazing. And his face showing all the emotion he must have felt fury and desperation about Lyana's death at the same time...your drawing is incredible!
Though I am still waiting, if there isn't more to the story about Rhaegar and Lyana....though if my theory proves right it would be even sadder for Robert....

:iconalexisacbannerman:
AlexisACBannerman Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013
ooh do you have a theory about Rhagar and Lyana too?? Id love to hear it!! I have a crazy conspiracy that Lyana died in a pool of her own blood because she was giving birth...and that she is the true stark parent of Jon snow, not Ned as we all think...but that as a dying wish, she swore Ned to secrecy, not to break Robs heart...
tell me your theory!
Reply
:iconmiaree:
Miaree Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
I have the same theory. But I am pretty sure that she wanted to keep Jon's identity hidden for another reason. Just think how Robert wanted to kill every Targaryen no matter what. And I am pretty sure that she loved Rhaegar because everything you read about him doesn't paint him as a man who would rape somebody. Poor Robert though...
Oh and Jon with his Targaryen Blood it's going to be interesting when Jon meets Dany and if he is going to ride a dragon (poor Ghost though^^)
And the Song of ICE AND FIRE. If Jon's Father is Rhaegar (Fire) and Mother Lyanna (Ice) what does this say bout his importance for the books... ;)

Hey you're really talented. Your Robert baratheon and Lyanna Stark drawings are so good, its exactly as he's described in the books when he was young. I'd love to see Robb Stark or Jon snow featuring with their wolves aswell. Keep it up.
