In the Game of Thrones episode The Mountain and the Viper (S04E08), Barristan Selmy is presented with a Royal Pardon supposedly signed by the late Robert Baratheon for Ser Jorah Morment by a lowly boy of Meereen.
However, it is a bit confusing to me as where this actually came from.
Is this the same pardon that Jorah had towards the beginning of the series while Robert was actually alive, or is this pardon one that Tywin actually forged and wrote in a previous episode (remember he asks Mace Tyrell for a quill after learning about Dany's recent actions and allies).
It being from Tywin makes sense but this point is brought up by Jorah and then defeated a sentence later as he himself states it is not a forged Pardon.
So which is it and why would Jorah say it is not a forged copy if it indeed is?
