** Ned, however, is also right in that neither the Lannisters or Tyrells can ''openly'' rule even after defeating their opponents, because they still need the appearance of legitimacy, i.e. a King named Baratheon who is descended from the Rebel King who won the Iron Throne. The Lannisters who are wealthy and have a reputation for "paying debts" also suffer the consequences of Bad PR and poor heirs since the Iron Bank have faith in Tywin Lannister, the Hand of the King, but have none whatsover in any of his descendants, while Stannis can count on relative youth and dependability.
** Peter Baelish who is an embodiment of nascent CorruptCorporateExecutive is also seen as a "moneygrubber" by the High Lords of Westeros and ultimately [[spoiler:the word of a teenage daughter of a High Lord counts for more than that of a longtime successful finance minister]].

* OopNorth: Winterfell and the Starks are Northern, and the accents of the actors involved reflect this, especially textbook Yorkshireman Sean Bean as Ned. Bean's contract specified that he be allowed to use his native accent for the role. Conversely, those associated with the Lannisters and/or the South tend to speak with [[BritishAccents RP (BBC English)]]. The Northeners' general opinion of the South is broadly similar to cultural stereotypes between the South of England and the North.
