Mhaegen to Eddard Stark[src]

Barra is a minor character in Game of Thrones. The young actor or actress playing her has not been identified. She only appears in the fifth episode of the first season and the first episode of the second season. She is the bastard child of King Robert Baratheon and Mhaegen.



Barra is an infant, the bastard child of King Robert Baratheon and Mhaegen. Mhaeghen is a prostitute working for Petyr Baelish in King's Landing. Barra lives with Mhaeghen in one of his brothels.

Lord Baelish brings Eddard Stark to see Mhaegen at his brothel. She tells him that her daughter Barra is Robert Baratheon's child, one of his many bastards. Jaime Lannister and his men ambush Eddard whilst he is leaving the brothel where Barra lives.[1]

During a purge of the late King Robert's bastard children carried out by the Gold Cloaks, Barra is killed by Lord Janos Slynt before the eyes of her mother and several prostitutes, including Ros.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Barra is identified as an infant with thin, dark hair. Her mother is 15 years old and her name is never mentioned. When Lord Eddard sees baby Barra he thinks of how much she resembles her half-sister, Robert's bastard daughter Mya Stone (who Robert fathered at a young age when they were fostered by Jon Arryn at the Eyrie, and who has not appeared in the TV series so far).

Cersei Lannister accuses Eddard of being drunk after a night of debauchery in the brothel, when he attacked Jaime Lannister in the street. Lord Eddard tells Robert he had only gone there to see the baby, Barra. When a dying Robert makes Eddard swear that he will protect and be a second father to his children, it is Barra, Gendry, and Mya Stone that Eddard thinks of when he takes the oath. However by telling Robert why he was at the brothel while Cersei could hear he has told Cersei of the baby's existence (but Cersei could have been informed about Barra from her spies, so it is uncertain Ned unintentionally caused the baby's death), thus she is ordered killed (the book does not reveal whether any of Robert's other bastards was killed too). It is one of the gold cloaks, Allar Deem instead of Janos Slynt himself who kills the baby, and her mother as well who tries to protect the child. When Janos Slynt is made Lord of Harrenhal, he recommends Allar Deem to replace him as commander of the gold cloaks. However, Tyrion Lannister orders that Deem be sent to the Wall with Janos Slynt. (He sends the captain of the ship that is taking them there a message that if a wave washes Deem overboard it would not be amiss).
