Eddard "Ned" Stark
Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, becomes the Hand of the King to Robert after Jon Arryn's death. He discovers Cersei and Jaime's secret, and is executed by Joffrey for treason soon after.

Jaime: Five hundred men stood here and watched. All the great knights of the seven kingdoms. Do you think anyone said a word, lifted a finger?

And, later, when I watched the Mad King die, I remembered him laughing as your father burned. It felt like justice.
