Robert Baratheon is the ruler of the seven kingdom. He was once a fine Warrior, but he as since succumb to the pleasures of food and wine. He is no longer half the fighter he once was. He was the leader of the War of the Usurpur, which led to the death of Aerys Targaryen, and he took the throne.
Robert Baratheon is a man more fit for life as a warrior, than life as a king. At least he has acknowledged his deficiencies and appointed Eddard Stark, one of the noblest men I have ever seen, as Hand of the King, due to the sudden death of Jon Aryan.
He relies heavily on others to run the kingdom while he partakes in random hobbies such as boar hunting, and never really accomplishes anything productive. At least he made one smart decision, and married into my family, a Lanister always repays his debts. Unfortunately he had to marry my sister Cersi, who is another character herself. With some Lanister influence hopefully we can get something done in this static kingdom.
It came to no surprise to me that Robert died boar hunting. He truly made a fool of himself an the kingdoms during his time as King. The throne is now up for grabs, and I believe a Lannister is the rightful heir.
