The Most Epic Game of Thrones Battles, Definitively Ranked
15. The Battle of the Whispering Wood
Episode: Season 1, Episode 9, “Baelor”
This was one of those early Game of Thrones battles that seemed so significant and amazing at the time, but has long since been overshadowed by much more significant battles. Robb Stark (Richard Madden) leads his army against Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and the Lannister army. In the end, Lannister men are slain, Jaime is captured, and Robb’s reputation is established in the North. Yes, that’s all fine and good, however, the battle itself was pretty standard and Robb’s rule never comes to fruition so it’s a little trivial.
