Game Of Thrones Fathers, Ranked From Best To Worst
Ned StarkStrengths: Principled, fair, good with a sword
Weaknesses: Politically inept, put ideals before family, not alive
Analysis: In some ways, Ned Stark is about as good of a parent as it gets in the world of Game of Thrones. He was good to his bastard. He taught all of his children ethics and provided a spiritually rich environment when they lived at Winterfell. In short, he was an invested parent. But an invested parent is no good if he is dead. Because of a few idiotic but “noble” decisions, one of his children is dead, one of his children has become a cold-hearted murderer and another child has been abused within an inch of her life. That’s not the best track record on this list, and it’s a sign that maybe he should have taken a different fork in the road.
