Jamie Lannister was pardoned by his brother-in-law, King Robert Baratheon. This is why he was not executed for treason.
Jaime begged the king to listen to reason: Surrender to his father, save lives. But Aerys would not yield, instead, he commanded Jaime to bring him Tywin’s head. But seeing the head pyromancer running off, Jaime chased him down and killed him before he could set off the wildfire.
The victorious rebellion would suffer and be weakened/divided. among the deaths would be Tywin, Kevan, Jaime, Aerys, Varys, Pycelle, Elia and her kids, Gregor, Aegon, Rhaenys and some 12000 Lannister soldiers.
Jaime Lannister was 17 years old when he killed the Mad King. Born in 266 AC alongside Cersei, he killed the Mad King during the Sack of King’s Landing and fall of House Targaryen from power in 283 AC.
Because the royal House Targaryen had been incestuously wedding brother and sister for nearly three centuries to keep bloodlines pure, Jaime insisted that what the two had been doing was not particularly unusual – although the rest of Westeros certainly would not have approved had it ever became public knowledge, even
In A Game of Thrones (1996), Jaime is introduced as one of the Kingsguard, the royal security detail, and the son of the wealthy and powerful Tywin Lannister, the former Hand of the King. Jaime’s twin is Cersei, the Queen of Westeros by virtue of her marriage to King Robert Baratheon.
Queen Cersei and her twin brother Ser Jaime Lannister have continued an illicit romance since childhood. Cersei’s children: Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen, are all born of their affair. Similar to the Targaryens, this incestuous bloodline has apparently produced severe mental health defects in Joffrey.
Aerys appointing Jaime to the Kingsguard was apparently a ploy to deprive Tywin (of whom he’d grown jealous and paranoid) of his heir and keep Jaime close to him as a hostage. That last is pretty stupid, as wielding a sword and watching over you while you sleep isn’t usual for hostages but, well, Aerys was insane.
Because he’s a member of the Kingsguard, sworn to never wed or hold lands. He was briefly named Warden of the East though. Because he joined the Kingsguard. To join the kingsguard the prospects are to forfeit their right of inheritance and swear an oath of celibacy.
Tyrion seems to know that Jaime pushed Bran at the beginning of AGoT (how?), and yet lingers in Stark territory by heading north to the Wall. The glance that passed between Jaime and Cersei lasted no more than a second, but he did not miss it.
