I was reading this book (first time) and i didn't understand something;
were Catlyn and ned already wife and husband when he fought in the Battle of trident?
When Brandon died? in the battle or how long before/after it?

Brandon died at King's Landing some months before the battle of the Trident, a victim of King Aerys' madness. Ned and Catelyn were married at Riverrun--after Brandon's death, and in fulfillment of the marriage contract between their fathers--after Brandon's death and before the Trident. If I recall correctly, Ned didn't actually fight at the Trident; I think his army was closer to King's Landing, but I could be mistaken.
