Robert is six and a half feet tall and overweight; he has gained at least eight stone (64 to 128 pounds, depending on the definition of a stone; 112 pounds by the most common definition) since he was in peak fighting condition. “A beard as coarse and black as iron wire covered his jaw to hide his double chin and the sag of the royal jowls, but nothing could hide his stomach or the dark circles under his eyes.” He was once muscular, wore an antlered helmet, carried a warhammer, and smelled of leather and blood. Now he gets out of breath from walking down stairs and wears perfume.
