There are not much warriors in the real sense of the word. Rather, what we have are people who have been hyped because of their tactical nous and strategies and for winning wars. Not a lot of people fought more than a few physical battles.

For those who actually fought one and survived (and not merely by reputation) I'd name
Victarion Greyjoy
Sandor Clegane
Brienne of Tarth
Jon Snow
Arya Stark
Tyrion Lannister (Yeah, he actually fought a lot of physical battles when you think of it)
Sir Duncan Tall from "Tales of Egg and Dunk"

Warriors by reputation
Jaime Lannister: because he lost all the battles he ever fought in the book. The only one he won was against Eddard Stark and that was cos Ned was outnumbered. He has reputation though. Every character (including himself) is always waxing lyrical about his fighting prowess but the one serious fight he had with Brienne ended with a defeat.

Robert Barratheon: By the time the book started, Robert was a shadow of his old self. He was reputed to be a fierce warrior (Battle of the Trident and all) but for all of that, we didn't actually see him fight any battle except all those ones from memories of other characters.

Ser Gregor Clegane: Known as "The Mountain", Sir Gregor has one of the highest warrior reputation (though of the evil kind) in the whole seven kingdoms. Unfortunately, the only battles this evil warrior fought ended with him losing. He lost against Sir Loras Tyrel at the "Hand's Tourney" in book 1 and against Oberyn Martel (losing your life because of a fight you won does not make you fearsome does it?)

Eddard Stark(?): The Starks are known for being hard, cold and honourable and I guess Eddard is as Stark as they come. We didn't get to see him do much physical battle except against Jaime Lannister (where he ended up with a broken leg), but The Tower of Joy and other long gone battles give him some warrior reputation. Don't forget there's a story of him and his trusted friends facing the "Hallowed" Kingsguard containing some famed Westeros heroes with only him and Howland Reed survived that battle.


Ser Barristan Selmy: He's a famed and celebrated hero of the Kingsguard and a hero-worshipper of Sir Duncan the Tall. But for all his famed prowess we didn't actually see him fight that many battles. The battles he did fight in the service of Deanerys Targeryen were against foes he should normally be defeating, maybe this is because he hasn't enjoyed a lot of Screen/POV time. I'm tempted to include him in the real warrior list though.

Worthy Mentions
Syrio Forrel
Loras Tyrel
Ser Bronn of the Blackwater
Stannis Barratheon
Tormund Giantsbane (?)


There is more and I'll update this post later.


I think we need to separate "warrior" from fighter.. on hand to hand some of the above mentioned names definitely merit the mention.

for me though the greatest living warriors in westeros are Stannis Baratheon (The greatest of them all)

Randyl Tarly and Jason Mallister.

Let me start from the Least to the greatest.

Jason Mallister. lord of sea guard.. We was said to have fought bravely at the Battle of the Trident, avenging his brother Jeffory Mallister by slaying three of Rhaegar's bannermen. He was one of the primary reason why the Greyjoy rebellion failed by slaying Rodirk Greyjoy one of Balon's sons (in single combat) and leading the surge that drove the Iron islanders back to the sea.. The failure of the assault on seaguard was a major setback for the rebellion as it prevented the Iron men from gaining any foothold in the riverland and deprived Balon of an heir. He also saw action in the battle for whisperingpool.

Randyl Tarlly
If Tywin ever had a brother from another mother it would be Randyl Tarly (the father of Sam Tarly) He leds the Tyrell Vangaurd and was the only man to have inflicted a defeat on Robert Baratheon forces at the battle of ashford. He also led the capture of Bitterbridge. In the battle of back water bay.. he commanded the center against Stannis at the battle of Blackwater receiving a commandation.

In the battle of 5 kings Tarly destroys a northern force attacking the town of duskendale capturing Harrion Karstark and Robett Glover before going on to take Maidenpool.. He is one man who is under stated in the book and the show (where he is non existent)

Stannis Barratheon

But by far the greatest warrior in westeros today is non other than Stannis the manis..

Stannis Showed discipline required of a battle commander by holding stormend (at the command of his elder brother) for about a year resorting to feeding on rats rather than yielding the castle. Holding the Tyrell ensured that one of the largest loyalist forces did not take the field against the rebels.

Charged with the task of taken Dragonstone and capturing Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen he raised a new fleet and led the assault on dragonston (though Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen had already been smuggled out)

During the greyjoy rebellion Stannis it was again who was called upon to lead the main assault against the Iron fleet. With the Lannister fleet all destroyed at anchor in lannisport. The Iron men had complete domination of the sunset sea. Any assault on the Iron Island would fail unless this situation is rectified. By tricking the Iron fleet (under the command of Balon's brother Victarion) Stannis led the royal fleet and trapped and destroyed much of the Iron Fleet at Fair Isle. This victory allowed gave way to Robert main assault on the island. allowing free flow of men and materials from westeros to iron island. Stannis then went on to subdue great wyk (the largest of all the islands that make up Iron Island) Although resoundingly defeated at the battle of blackwater bay. (It should be noted that the main blame lays with the commander of the stannis fleet who rather than apply caution sent all the ships into blackwater sending many men to their death) His tactic was quite sound (positioning scouts and outriders on his flanks- all of whom were neutralized by Tyrion's wildlings)...

After the battle of blackwater. Stannis showed he was down but not broken.. he was the only "King" to respond to the distress call of the night watch helping to decimate Mance Rayder army with a beautifully executed pincer movement. Taking Mance army from the flanks in a 3 piece Pincer movement that should be thought in school of military doctrine.

Stannis is not done. He travels to deepwood motte leading a band of north men to remove the ironborn who held it and returning it to house glover.. while taking Asha Greyjoy captive.

Stannis for me is currently the greatest commander in westeros. He has the discipline, the will power, tactics, experience and skill. He is also skilled in both land and sea..

@SIRcumalot, bro, could you please send the new release to jlk172003 at yahoo dot com? The torrent download didn't work out too well for me and I won't be able to try it again for a while.

Have got an e-reader on my phone so ePub's fine but I prefer to read on a laptop so if I could have the pdf as well I'd be real happy.


Thanks bro.
