With "Game of Thrones" George R.R. Martin crafted a universe full of (tons and tons and tons) complicated and complex characters. Many of the main characters have strong, individualized voices and even out of context, almost any quote can be quickly placed to its speaker. In a world of dozens of characters that is no small feat. Robert Baratheon had many memorable quotes.
The King of the Seven Kingdoms himself (at the open of the series) Robert Baratheon ruled for over 15 years. As such, he had a lot to say... a fair amount of it about food and ladies. As Ser Barristan so succinctly put it, "He was a good man, a great warrior, and a terrible king."Vote up the best Robert Baratheon quotes from "Game of Thrones" below and read up on all things "Game of Thrones" at Ranker of Thrones.

"I swear to you, I was never so alive as when I was winning this throne, or so dead as now that I've won it."
"You want to know the horrible truth? I can't even remember what she looked like. I only know she was the one thing I ever wanted... someone took her away from me, and seven kingdoms couldn't fill the hole she left behind."
