  1. Interesting thought. I'm going to do something unconventional and wait. See what proof I can gather about the twincest. Once we reach King's Landing, inform Barristan Selmy and Eddard together. Whereas Eddard alone faltered, Barristan commands the Kingsgard, and will move to prevent any stain on the white cloak, moving to kill or imprison Jamie. With Robert apathetic to the needs of the realm, those two are probably the best chance for the realm to beat back the threat from the North. Once convinced of my prophetic powers, Eddard can send a raven back to Winterfell, convincing Robb to call his banners and train a army to man the Wall. Without Robert's death, no war of 5 kings, more men for the Battle for the Dawn
  2. I thought Summerhall might have been given to Duncan and Jenny as well. As a castle with fewer royal implications, it would have been a easy gift for them.
  3. Generally from what I've read on these forums, votes tend towards Daeron II, Aegon I, or Jahaerys I. It tends towards what you view as 'best'. From your OP, looking towards a peaceful, prosperous reign, you'd look at Jahaerys I or his successor Viserys I, as having peaceful reigns. For accomplishment, Aegon I gets a look in, because it wouldn't have been easy forging Seven Kingdoms into one. Daeron II gets a mention due to his peaceful annexation of Dorne, although he loses out for the Blackfyre Rebellion. It would also depend on how you allocate reign. Does Viserys I get credit for the Dance of the Dragons, or is that all Aegon II's fault? Does Aegon IV get credit for the Blackfyre Rebellions? Or are you looking more strictly at when the king was in power?
  4. I would think that they don't have castles they are willing to give away, but might be willing to part with some nice land upon which to build a keep for a younger son if needs be.
  5. This is one I figured was about control. Assuming fAegon is real, which is by no means a given, then what do Illyo and Varys gain by having him raised in Dorne? The hopes of a pat on the back from Doran Martell after he installs his nephew on the IT. But by raising him in secret, away from Westeros, he is safer from assasins and Robert's vengence, he is completely in thier control, so they can teach him what they like

  7. I wonder he's put the Gift up as collateral.There's always value in land, and it would give the Iron Bank a small chunk of Westeros they could sell to some richer Westerosi to recoup thier money Good thread though
  8. A significant part of this is how close the people are to the line of succession to thier various houses. A marriage to a lord or heir is considered worth more than that of a cousin or youngest son. This is probably why Aegon the Unlikely is allowed to marry a Blackwood - he's far down the line of succession at the time.
  9. Care to share your opinion?
  10. The maesters told Rhaegar that Elia would have no more children after Aegon. I don't have the exact quote on me, but you can check the wiki. Though you could be right about Stannis

  12. There's quite a few trilogies that start as a stand alone novel, then get expanded because the first does well. Personally I don't think it does. It's all down to the author in question, but I imagine that most will try and complete thier work simply out of professional pride if nothing else
  13. Stannis. Tywin gives Amory Loch and others orders to murder Rheagar's children, but Elia is spared. Robert marries Ceresi as per normal, Ceresi has bastards as per normal. Stannis marries Elia to try and bring Dorne into the fold. Elia and Stannis find out about Ceresi's children, Ceresi kills Robert to try and put Jofferey on the throne, but Jon Arryn is still Hand. Jon orders the execution of Jamie and Ceresi, gives the throne to Stannis as the rightful heir. Renly doesn't yet have the support of the Tyrells to make his own claim, so throws his weight behind Stannis. Elia is barren anyway, so Renly knows the throne will pass to him in due course
  14. Ashara Dayne. Without Lyanna to inspire him, Rheagar falls earlier in the lists, leaving Ser Barristan Selmy and Ser Arthur Dayne as the final tilt. Either would name Ashara as QoLaB
  15. My own personal crackpot theory states that Rheagar thought the three heads of the dragon were his three children. Rheanys and Aegon, his children by Elia, and his bastard by Lyanna. In fact, the whole reason behind Lyanna was to have the third child, who he thought would grow to be Dany. But I haven't complied everything yet.
