In season 1 of Game of Thrones (or book one of the A Song of Ice and Fire series) we met a whole host of weird and (not so) wonderful characters. One such character is the drinking, whoring King of the Andals and the First Men, Robert Baratheon. Robert made for a pretty useless king as he preferred to focus more on getting drunk and throwing tournaments than he did on political and economical issues. But despite how he ended up, Robert was once a strong and capable warrior who played a key role in Robert’s Rebellion, where he overthrew the Mad King Aerys II Targaryen with the help of Ned Stark, Tywin Lannister and his brother Stannis Baratheon to name just a few. If you’ve watched the television show but not read the books, you’re likely to have missed some of the details surrounding Robert’s Rebellion. Thankfully the infographic below has it all summarised so you can enjoy the full story of Robert’s rise to power.
