Okay i have seen a few people on here and on other websites comment saying that they think Joffrey is worse than Aerys was...Well i personally believe that is ludicrous.
Joffreys track record
- Attempted to kill Bran
- Killed Ned Stark (mostly under LF's influence)
- Beat Sansa here and there
- Killed peasants with Crossbows
- Abused whores (Not sure if this is book cannon, memory is foggy)
Okay yeah, Joffrey clearly is a horrible person, but...
Aerys Track record
- Raped and abused his wife
- Cut out Ilyn Paynes toungue
- Burned people frequently and ejaculated from it
- Burned Rickard Stark alive and caused Brandon to choke to death watching on a torture device (seriously this is disgusting)
- Attempted to commit democide on half a million people with wildfire
I'm sure i left a few out for both of them but yeah as you can see i don't personally see any comparison on who was more vile. I mean yeah some will say 'Oh but Aerys started out promising'. My reply to that is so what? Him being 'nice' once doesn't suddenly erase or justify his atrocities committed later on.
