Just to make a brief account of their bloody rule, for their general (not all of them) either lack of hability to rule, lust of power, madness, or bloodthist....
"Peace Time" should include...
1- War of Conquest.
2- Eleven years of Faith Upraising "resulting in the deaths of thousands in battle, slaughter and by dragonfire".
3- The Dance of Dragons. Family war, extintion of dragons.
4- Wars against Dorne.
5- Raymond Readbeard invasion. Battle of the Lake and death of Lord Stark. The only border of the Kingdom is not well protected.
6- Blackfyre Rebelion. Again, dragonspawn making everybody kill each other.
7- A probable war between Houses Lannister and Stark against Dagon Greyjoys raids, with KL doing seamingly nothing about it.
8- Second Blackfyre rebelion.
9- War of Ninepenny Kings.
11- Roberts Rebelion....
So, there we got unlist 11 major conflicts under their paceful rule. Probably we are talking about dozens or perhaps even a million people gone by arms, under "peace".
We also know (briefly, as hints) that Lords keep fighting between each other in private wars not being part of "the kings peace" as Webbers against Osgreys, Breckens and Blackwoods usual wars, House Reyne and Lothson...
Now, best part of it, is that all this war and blood we know, is just the result of hints of this 280 years, and not nearly the full story. Probably, there are many more of them we haven heard about. Many more...
Nevertheless, its absolutly clear PAX TARGARYA is just a mith.
