Re: SPOILER *all five books* THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)
Sansa was like 11 or so when the series started. Cat fucks up at times, but you can't expect her to teach Sansa how bloodthirsty and back stabbing southern politics are at that age. As far as Cat knew, they'd never even go to King's Landing, much less Ned Stark, the Warden of the North, would be executed by a moron king.
Robert Baratheon, Ned's de facto brother, was the king, and there was no reason to believe anyone could take it from him.
