  1. If Aegon hadn't...

    @YOVMO A huge land like Westeros being divided to 7 different kingdoms doesn't strike me as lack of absolute sovereign power. There was absolute power of Starks over the North with little to threaten it from either north or south. Arryns had absolute power over Eyrie, just like Gardeners in Reach. Even Ironborns had secured their authority over Riverlands. And interestingly enough, divisions and petty rivalries served Western Europe much better than what unity did to for example China.
  2. If Aegon hadn't...

    Well, one thing is evident: Harrenhall wasn't meant to rule over Riverlands alone. A typical excuse by expansionists to justify their aggression. "Oh we do it for their own sake, they can't solve their problems, their smallfolks are suffering ...".
  3. why does everyone blame Renly for Stannis's mistake

    Pycelle landed the final blow and he was Lannister creature.
  4. why does everyone blame Renly for Stannis's mistake

    @devilish I'm agree with your point. Robert is a a horrible administrator, but a better diplomat than Ned and Stan combined. But I don't put too much fault on him for Cersei affair, since I don't see any one in entire realm capable of contenting her. Sooner or later she would find an excuse to hate her husband whomever he might have been. Even her own brother and proclaimed lover fell to her deceptions.

  6. Anyone else dislike Valyrians/Targaryens?

    No he didn't, but that wasn't my point. By the way I do abhor Valyrians almost as much as I abhor typing with mobile which ufortunately I'm stuck with right now.
  7. Anyone else dislike Valyrians/Targaryens?

    Well, I hope you've read these books better than me, so you can correct me if I'm wrong since I don't remember any Targaryens attempt to rebuild what has been damaged (restablishing Valyria). But I do remember that Volantenes tried just that and Aegon stood against them. I said it's a bloody business, didn't I? The First Men and the Andals migrated to take the land and make a new home. You can compare it with the Saxon invasion of Britain in migration period. They didn't do it to win some thrones, they went to take the land and make it their own. Of course the local settlers didn't like this foreigners taking their land and many of them put a ressistance and there was many large scale wars and lots of bloodshed. As for Aegon's conquest; you can compare it with Norman conquest. William the Conqueror didn't risk his neck so his men could've better farmlands when he landed in England five centuries later. He marched to win a throne he had a claim on. I'm not not arguing whether this is better or that; I'm merely implying that they are different matters.

    And how is that going to change anything? Being more civilized make them more human, give them more right or what? If an alien race lands on earth with a superrior weapon and technology does it give them right to rule and enslave us?
  9. Anyone else dislike Valyrians/Targaryens?

    They are different concepts. The First Men and the Andals migrated to Westeros. Mass migration is a bloody business but a natural one and there are countless of this example in the real world. The change of climate, growth of population and the push of other tribes forced nomads to seek for new lands. It's rather different from the push of a foreign elite minority with supperior weaponary to rule over a vast majority.
  10. What was the best scene from the books in your opinion?

    Lady Stonheart sending Jaime back to Riverrun via TREBUCHET. That's going to be hilarious. Wishful thinking aside Catelyn tearing her face to bloody ribbons for Rob was brutally intriguing.
  11. Sansas ending

    If Sansa is not supposed to be queen, then who will be the Snowwhite who overthrows evil queen(s)? Who will build snow castles? ... Brienne?
