[...] Uhmmm lets see, "its right to kill the crazy king cause he is crazy" dont know why but it sounds familar...
I do think viserys diserved what he got, but after this you just cant claim the throne girl! Your husband killed the king and put you next in line! And you are blaming robert and his dogs for doing the same ? [...]
Valid points. It does bear keeping in mind two things though:
1) Robert & "dogs" didn't just remove the one crazy king and then said "ok, as I'm next in line it's my turn now", they removed the king, killed the heirs they could get (Aegon & Rhaenys) and left the heirs they couldn't get exiled and hunted (Vis & Dany) instead of calling them back. While there is a certain rationale behind that (fear for revenge), it's quite different from just taking out the crazies.
2) Dany has an extremely biased view of Robert's rebellion. Basically there was the big bad Bob who wanted to grab power and to forcefully steal Rhaegar's woman and poor noble valiant Rhaegar got crushed by senselessly evil and unprovoked traitors.
This lopsided view can be seen as her own fault, not so much at the time of the events we're talking about, but much more so later when she leaves her source of info (Barristan) untapped for the time being as soon as it becomes clear that she's not going to like everything she hears.
One way or another she'll not be able to remain oblivious forever, and it's interesting to see how she'll react then.
