However the fisherman died before task might be accomplished. With the help of the fisherman´s daughter, he was able to reach Sweetsister. Meanwhile, Robert was waging a war in the South. Before Ned joined him, he married his deceased brother´s betrothed Catelyn Tully. When the rebellion was nearing it´s end, Ned embarked on the journey towards the Dornish Borders. Prince Rhaeger Targaryen had hidden Ned´s sister Lyanna within the Tower of Joy, within the boundaries of Dornish kingdom. The tower was guarded heavily and Ned engaged into a skirmish with them. This resulted in heavy losses. Unfortunately, Lyanna met her death shortly after the battle which left Ned haunted and scarred throughout his life.<br /><br />At the end of the conflict, Robert became the king and Ned returned to his home.
