A man of honor
Eddard Ned” Stark is one of the main characters of the novels “A Song Of Ice And Fire” and the series “Game Of Thrones”. Played on screen by the very unlucky but talented Sean Bean, he will only participate in season 1 but his actions and his death will be the trigger for important events in the kingdom of Westeros and beyond. Ned Stark is the lord of Winterfell and the North, the last region that separates the realm from the wilderness beyond the Wall. At the beginning of the series, his friend King Robert Baratheon comes to visit him at Winterfell to ask him to replace their mutual friend and “Hand of the King” (the most powerful figure in the realm after the King) Jon Arryn, who has recently died under questionable circumstances. Ned Stark accepts out of friendship but also in order to investigate this mysterious death, especially with the queen and her family, the Lannisters, whom he has never trusted. And this is where the problems that will lead him to his death will begin. Ned Stark is a very respected man because he is good, fair and honorable, although rather cold. But it is also his excessive honesty and sense of honor that will lead to his downfall.
