Things I Like: Ser Jorah Mormont (Game of Thrones)

Jorah Mormont Game of Thrones HBO

While not even close to being a “great lord” or a king, Jorah Mormont was one of the most important characters and beloved by most. Before the series began, Jorah was a knight and Lord of Bear Island. He had married a beautiful woman but she wanted an expensive life. Jorah rounded up poachers on his land and put them into slavery, in an effort to keep enough gold to for his wife to be happy. He exiles himself before Ned Stark found him. He soon meets the Targaryen siblings, claiming he wanted to see Prince Viserys on the throne. He was working with Lord Varys, helping the spymaster inform King Robert Baratheon of what was happening in exchange for a royal pardon.

He stays alive until near the end of the series. Dying after many brutal strikes from wights who tried to kill his Queen. While many fans were upset that he died, I thought it was a fitting end to a disgraced knight who died with honor.
