Throughout the entirety of Game of Thrones, Lyanna Stark is mentioned. Usually this happens in the Winterfell crypts when characters are looking at the statue that rests by her grave. The Stark children know little about her except for the fact that their father had a sister. What Everyone Knew Was Wrong "Father never talked… Continue reading Who Else Knew the Truth about Rhaegar and Lyanna?
