Sorry if this was discussed before . . .
I wondered what the order of succession is now when the Baratheons are in the power?
Do they keep the Targs´ system or did they change it to the more common "if King doesn´t have a son, his daugter will come before his uncle/brother/nephew/male cousin"?
Far as we have been told, no such change occurred.
If Tommen dies, who is the next in line - Stannis or Myrcella?
I think that Stannis would be skipped as a heretic, but I´m curious.
You mean, as a rebel? The Iron Throne is not directly linked to the Faith of Seven.
Odds are good that Myrcella would be supported by the Lannisters and, possibly, by at least some of the Dornish Houses. Stannis, of course, would not accept it, just as he did not accept Joffrey or Tommen.
Since there is no established external arbiter to break such an impasse, it would doubtless come down to military might. Basically, it would be the War of the Five Kings round two.
