  1. 1. Harrenhal pre-burning, with it being the biggest castle in Westeros and large and fertile land, central position in southern Westeros and its next to lake which makes it good lake house 2. Dragonstone, a nice island home, a volacano (always a plus) ,seemingly the best island fortress in Westeros and in a good position for trade, also for the magic 3. Hightower, next to the Citadel, the Starry Sept and a cleaner city than King's Landing
  2. Daeron I wasn't breaking the treaty when he attacked Dorne, since the Dornish borke the treaty by raiding, meaning he was justified to take Dorne to stop his people being attacked. Not that I'm saying that was the main reason he attacked Dorne.
  3. Yeah it would have, we hear that Viserys would have killed the Dornish hostages. And he would have also resumed the war with Dorne. An important thing to remember here is that the Dornish hadn't won the war, which is why the Dornish resulted to breaking the peace banner to kill Daeron I (think red wedding). If Viserys is as smart and capable as he's portrayed, he'll offer the Stony (Andal and First Men) Dornish Lords the lands of the other Dornish lords, if they help they help him in the war. For example he could offer the Yronwoods to be Lord Paramount's of Dorne. This would also stop the Blackfyre rebellions from happening since a major part of that was that the Dornish seemed to win the war, because when they sweared fealty to Daeron II, they ha significantly more power than any other lords. Also Valyrian blood will be less dilute in the Targaryens since Daeron II would not have married Mariah Martell and probably would have married his father's first cousin Elaena Targaryen.
  4. Arlan III, because it would be nice to see the Stormlands at their full strength with the Riverlands being conquered Lancel I, the most powerful Lannister king Qhored Hoare, it would be intresting to see the days which the Ironborn now dream of happening Gyles III, becuase the guy led the Reach at the apex of its power but was not able to permanently enlarge it to see why that was Durran XXI, to see how he was successful aganist the Andals
  5. I agree with you, however I think that has already happened with Ser Duncan the Tall in The Sworn Sword.
  6. Is this you just stating what actually happens in Westeros or your personal opinion an if it isn't, can you please say it.
  7. Definitely agree with what you said about the NW's vows taking precedent as shown by their vow, however since it seems that you need to be a KG member since they are called knights of the KG (not including Sandor Clegane) meaning that their is a good chance that their KG vows include their knightly vows, however we don't know what a KG's vows are.
  8. What do you think personally? I believe that a Knights vows more important because they are taken first.
  9. Which vows are more important (as in which one should take priority),the vow a knights takes to become a knight or the vow a knight gives to his liege to obey them. Also as a side question which one do you think Westerosi lords, smallfolk and septons consider the most important.
  10. No, I don't think you were being rude. However you did get my point incorrect, my point is that since Westeros is set in what we would call medieval times, we should use how we called civil wars back in medieval times for the definition of what the Westerosi would call their civil wars.Which is what this topic is about, what the Westerosi would call civil wars. I was not saying that we should use the archaic meaning for words when talking about them words in the days when that was the meaning for the word. Just to be clear I am not blaming you for thinking I said this, since I am not a good writer.
  11. What about House Targaryen marrying into House Celtigar.
  12. In regards to Blackfyre point about the Second Blackfyre rebellion is that like the Jacobite rebellions (which the Blackfyre rebellion's are most likely based off), is that since they all have the same aim (put Daemon Blackfyre/his line or put James I/ his male line on the throne) they just call it the 2nd, 3rd one etc. For example all the Jacobite rebellion had no chance of success short of the 1745 one, which had more traits of (the archaic meaning) a civil war, however the historians of the time didn't then decide to call it by a diffrent name and just called the Jacobite rising of 1745 like the smaller one of 1715. P.S. Your constant questioning of the meaning of a medieval civil war (when a country in split in two equal parts or multiple parts ) and a medieval rebellion ( a small part of the country rebelling), made me research it more and I found it did not actually stop being used by the end of the medieval times and was used up until the 19th century (as showed by the Jacobite rebellions/Uprisings) when it got it's current meaning. Which is why I used archaic instead of medieval for the old meaning of civil war since using medieval is incorrect.
  13. However as I said before, the First Blackfyre rebellion and Roberts's Rebellion (War of the Usurper) were called that to make them seem smaller then they actually were. And the other 3 wars I classes as civil wars just use war which as I explained before was normal in medieval times.
  14. Yeah, like I said before I'm not sure if Westerosi do have the same concept of civil war as they did in medieval times, the reason I assumed they do is that the time ASOIAF is based in, is the middle ages.
