Tower of Joy + Lyanna’s Death + Bonus R+L=J

The Showdown at the Tower of Joy took place at the Tower of Joy in Dorne at the the end of Robert’s Rebellion. According to Eddard dream, he and six of his companions approached the tower to recover Eddard’s sister, Lyanna Stark. They found it guarded by three members of the Kingsguard: Ser Arthur Dayne, Ser Oswell Whent, and Lord Commander Gerold Hightower.

Ned found Lyanna inside the tower in a “bed of blood”, dying. While the combatants clash, Lyanna screams. Lyanna died in a room that smelled of “blood and roses”. A fever had taken her strength. Her voice had been faint as a whisper. There was fear in her eyes, while she called for “Ned” to promise her something. When her brother gave his word, the fear left her. They were still holding each other as she “gave up her hold on life”. Rose petals slipped from her palm, dead and black.

Neither the content of the promise nor the cause of her death are currently known. It is theorized that she died giving birth, possibly to Jon Snow.

Robert believes that she was carried her off and raped her.Barristan Selmy is convinced that he her loved her and though that love sent thousands to their deaths.

Rhaegar spent much of the war at the Tower of Joy with Lyanna. He left to join the war effort and fought at the Trident, where Robert slew Rhaegar.

Ned found Lyanna inside the tower in a “bed of blood”, dying. Lyanna died in a room that smelled of “blood and roses”. She called for Ned to promise her something.

There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.
