It sucks to be the baby of the family

Just appreciation thread for Maekar, the king who's life sucked. From his two eldest dying the most shameful way possible, mistakenly killing his brother, his third son being forced by his dad to the maesters, and death by giant rock, his was the most sh*tty of Targ reigns.

Meakar was a capable soldier and leader as he proved to be in the Blackfyre rebellion of Daemon Blackfyre. However, he seems to have possibly deposed and imprisoned (not yet confirmed) Bloodraven, his uncle who did just as much to defeat Daemon Blackfyre and secure "his", Meakar's line from his father through him and down. Meakar strikes me as a "backstabber" but he also had enough sense as a father to realize that Dunk would be a good role model for his son Aegon. He could have been worse and insane but overall a better than average Targ bordering on "very good" as a quality mark of his reign.

Never got a traitor vibe from Maekar, Brynden was using his brothers.

Maekar was ok. We don't really know much of Bloodraven to know why exactly Maekar decided to imprisoned. For what we know, maybe he tried some very dark dangerous magic and Maekar put him away to protect his family.

Was it really more shitty than the reigns of Maegor, Daeron I, Aegon IV, Aerys, and late Mad Aerys?

Well, for the king himself, I imagine Aegon IV had a nonstop party.

Didn't Maekar consider the IT a punishment for his fatal blow to Baelor Breakspear?



Anyway, Egg had it pretty good, traveled the 7k, married for love. Better than any of his older brothers.

Maekar, the brooder of Summerhall, letting his child son (even if he was the youngest) go with some random hedge knight was one of the most absurd things I've ever seen. I know it was plot-needed. And that it turns out all right. But still, it makes little sense. So that kind of makes him look like a fool in my eyes.

I'm very sure he never got to put his pants on back once he pulled them off...

Maybe Rickon is GRRM's self-insert and we just hadn't noticed because he has been out of sight :lol:

When did we find out he got crushed by a rock? I don't remember seeing that in the WOIAF excerpts I've read.

It was part of the West/Lannister read.

Damn. I hate it when I miss that stuff. Found a link for anyone else like me who was dumb enough to miss it.

Traveled pants-less straight from Stone Hedge to Raventree. Good thing they are close
