Temporarily removed
Queen Layna of House Baratheon is the only girl to Steffon Baratheon and his wife, Cassana. She had two older brothers; Robert and Stannis, then a younger one called Renly. Layna, in her youth was one of 'a heavenly child'. She never cried, and she was the most respected out of her brothers for being 'so mature'.

Layna, in books has always been known as very wise, good natured and powerful with her looks. Her green eyes were simply poison, her hair was as detailed as it could get. She played the harp, sang to the poor, and had crowds whenever she came by. Prince Rhaegar remarked that 'Has their ever been someone that can capture her look, like Lady Layna can?'. Littlefinger, even said, also 'Had their ever been someone so devoted to her family, and brothers than Layna? How beautiful she is'.

As much as Layna loves her brothers, no matter how much her older ones push her away, she feels more devoted to her younger brother, Renly, the most. Robert and Stannis were the big pair, Layna and Renly were the little pair. When he died, it caused a big trigger through Layna. She loved her younger brother more than her children, and it started something out of an act of responsibility.

Layna always saw the world as something else before coming an adult. As a teenager, she was going to be wed off to Garlan Tyrell, which she didn't want. It made her feel lonely, with no one to contact, to at least give her comfort. Garlan and Layna did try to make some things out of a loveless relationship, which they received. They had a boy, named Ryman.

When Ryman was born, Garlan persuaded Layna to move where he lived, in Highgarden. Everyone was delighted a new child came! Olenna treated Layna with respect, recalling her as a bright, sharp girl who was pleasant to everyone. 'I hear your Mother sent Ravens everyday for Renly. How close they were...'. Layna, was only 16 at the time, she didn't want to be a Mother so young, however, Ryman made her laugh at the most unfortunate times.

Winter Is Coming

Garlan died 6 months after their third child, Olyvar was born. As someone who really did love Garlan, the sight of flowers made her think of her long lost true love, so, she went to Winterfell. 'I always thought Winterfell was safer for me, at the time. Yet again, grief drives you with emotions you never wanted.' Layna's children; Ryman, Arianne and Olyvar grew up there, becoming friends with the Stark children. She worked as a Maid, eventually reuniting with her brother, Robert after Jon Arryn dies, and Ned is requested to be The Hand Of The King.

'Ned Stark Gave Me a Home When I Needed It Most. So I will Fight For His Life To Give The Justice He Should Take Home With Him'

'I'm going to fight for those who never got to during there last minutes of breath'.

She knew that it was Cersei all along who poisoned her older brother, Robert. At this point Layna was losing herself with Cersei. She trusted her, even in a loveless, relationship. She did try to stay by Ned's side after Robert died, when she decided to head to King's Landing. She left her oldest son to look after Bran Stark, and left Merlin in Winterfell. She took Arianne over with her, and wanted Ned Stark to live not die. That wasn't the case, though... In fact, Layna was grief stricken once again. 'I lost a second father that day'.

After Renly is stabbed, Layna is triggered by something big. 'You were never sympathising with our poor little brother...' She says to Stannis. She laughs off the feeling that she's cursed, and shipped Clytemnestra off to Winterfell to look after Bran. She killed every last person, with a snake, or beheaded, that she felt were responsible for Renly's death.'Now they can see what it was really like, for Renly. Those last moments'... she burnt a city in king's Landing to show what she could do.
