  2. rubies

    Definitely. And it's too coincidental that there is a historical figure with ties to the Wars of the Roses called the Black Prince (probably for his armor), whose ruby -- The Black Prince's Ruby -- sits front and center on the U.K.'s Imperial State Crown. - Picture of the ruby Along those lines, soon after the rubies on Rhaegar's chest were scattered, Aerys sent his wife and son across the bay to the island of Dragonstone. If the rubies on Rhaegar's chest represent House Targaryen, then it could be argued that the scattering of the rubies in the Trident symbolically mirrors Rhaella and Viserys fleeing to DS, and/or Viserys and Daenerys later fleeing across the Narrow Sea.
  3. rubies

    I believe Rhaegar's rubies are emblematic of his house and family. The suit of armor he wore at HH and the Trident displayed the Targaryen sigil, and his rubies are compared to fire, and to blood, echoing the Targaryen words. They had come together at the ford of the Trident while the battle crashed around them, Robert with his warhammer and his great antlered helm, the Targaryen prince armored all in black. On his breastplate was the three-headed dragon of his House, wrought all in rubies that flashed like fire in the sunlight. - AGoT, Eddard I Rubies flew like drops of blood from the chest of a dying prince, and he sank to his knees in the water and with his last breath murmured a woman’s name… - ACoK, Daenerys IV (HotU)
  4. Heretics finding speculation from other groups of fans "extremely amusing" is extremely amusing to me.
  5. The Heresy essays: X+Y=J- Howland + Lyanna=Jon

    "Whereas Daenerys is a fourteen-year-old girl.” Ned knew he was pushing this well past the point of wisdom, yet he could not keep silent. “Robert, I ask you, what did we rise against Aerys Targaryen for, if not to put an end to the murder of children?” - AGoT, Eddard VIII Wouldn't your line of thinking presume that Robert, and many others for that matter, knew Lyanna was pregnant? Which seems like it would cause serious problems for the Jon Snow cover story. I also have a hard time believing that Ned would have such great respect for Arthur Dayne if he was meant to murder a child, since child murder upsets Ned, to put it mildly. “The finest knight I ever saw was Ser Arthur Dayne, who fought with a blade called Dawn, forged from the heart of a fallen star. They called him the Sword of the Morning, and he would have killed me but for Howland Reed.” Father had gotten sad then, and he would say no more. Bran wished he had asked him what he meant. - ACoK, Bran III
  6. The Flight of the Ice Dragon

    I wonder about this myself, because he used pretty obvious Ice Dragon rider imagery when he had Aemond Targaryen wear a sapphire in place of his missing eye.
  7. R+L=J v.157

    I agree with you. I was just presenting the argument(s) I've seen. I don't think anyone let Rhaegar win. I think he was just finally able to beat Dayne and Selmy in the same tourney, instead of beating one and losing to the other in the finals. As he did in Lannisport and Storm's End.
  8. R+L=J v.157

    Someone took it a step further and once argued that Ser Barristan meant the bold in terms of chivalry rather than skill. I think there was another passage quoted to support the argument, but I don't recall it offhand.

    Everything seems to be working for me. Thanks.

    Looks like I'm having the same problem. I'm on a MacBook.

  12. Cersei is knight of laughing tree

    I'd like to see the source for that information. It sounds suspiciously like a presumptuous, and possibly misleading, summary of this paragraph from ACoK, Sansa VI: Does anyone know if there is a better source for the app's claim?

    I knew you were cool.
  14. The Black Prince's Ruby is one of the Crown Jewel's of the UK, and is front and center on the Imperial State Crown. Images. So, the ruby is one of the lasting legacies of the Black Prince. Sort of like Rhaegar's rubies, which fell from his black armor. Fwiw, it is not actually a ruby, but a spinel, which is a different type of red gem. But that distinction is relatively modern. Also, it is believed by some to be cursed.    
  15. Anyone interested in the subject of Rhaegar's armor and rubies should google Edward of Woodstock.
