    Aegon VI

    I always found it odd how in Agot, when Ned is in the cell and his daughters come up. Varys brings up the innocent who suffer, and tells of the sack of K.L. yet, he fails to mention Aegon being murdered. He stops after Rhaeny's. To a dying man. Then come book 5, Aegon tells the story of how Varys saved him. Then, Book 5 ends with Vary's telling the Truth to a dying Lannister. Who isn't going to tell anybody since he's dead. I think it's quiet likely Varys is telling the truth. The bigger question to me, is who is Varys.

    Aegon VI

    Im still going with Aegon VI real or not, fills the role from the adaptation. Jon is not Aegon or a Targ. He is the son of Mance, and will become King Beyond the Wall. I just cannot see any logic behind redundantly giving Dany two possible Targs to go through the same question of identity with both. Say Jon is a Targ, after dealing with Aegon, Dany will never trust Jon. As i stated long ago though, Jon is of the North, and will not care for the throne of Westeros.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Jaehaerys and his mother Alyssa remind me of Edward the 3rd of House Plantagenet and his mother Isabella who married a marcher lord and had her husband murdered. She was the She Wolf of France

    [Spoilers] Fire and Blood Errata

    That skull is right up their with their sphinxes inside K.L. hahaha apparently the Targaryen's just greatly valued their artifacts

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Yea there are a lot of pieces GRRM laid out prior to F&B that i had based theories on just to have them smashed and changed hahaha According to @Ran, who asked George about this. Its just a "fanciful tale".

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Yep. That's why i listed the other ones. On the chance that there is no king in her time. Raising the point of how she knows of them and which ones would she know about. Assuming Alysanne or Jaehaerys learned of them when the wilding camp was caught and noses taken. (Still interesting they never heard legend of the Others considering this giant ice wall and the reason for its very creation being tied to this legend but meh.). It's still interesting to me.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Im still tripping on one of the daughters wanting to marry the King beyond the Wall or the Prince of Dorne to become Queen. (Even though in Dorne shed just be a princess still but watever). But what of this King Beyond the Wall? Who is he? How would she know of Kings beyond the Wall? What King beyond the Wall was there even close to this time? Bael is the closet at maybe 3-400BC. Did Alysanne and Jaehaerys tell there kids Bael's story? That would be odd. Maybe just Gendel and Gorne, Horned Lord and Joramun? Unless there actually was a king in there time? (Couldn't find mention yet). Do the wildlings always have kings? Why didn't he try to go south? Maybe i just need to read more?
  8. Id be interested to see an egg count or list if you have one. Im still reading the book so it'll be a min before i get to any notes
  9. We should have a thread on the dying of the Dragons, thought about starting one but wasn't sure if you guys just wanted that under dragon lore.

    Was the Daenerys section a good addition and change from the Og first Daenerys married to Maron?

    Maegor's Holdfast - The Real tower of joy

    Well a couple things. All approached from a neutral perspective. I like to collect idea's and keep them in my noggin. Like Lyanna birthing in the crypts of Winterfell, the tower of joy, or now your lovely Maegor's Holdfast, along with a nagging suspicion i have of Queen's Crown tower. (Which bridges with idea of Lyanna birthing in the North and Benjen having had some knowledge possibly, knowledge he maybe shared with some of his new brothers, like Qhorin or Jeor.) Though, backing up, i have had suspicions long ago about Aerys not having raped Rhaella, but of raping Ashara Dayne. Via that hidden passage. So im honestly still stewing on your idea of Maegor's holdfast being the Tower of Joy and having farther reaching implications than just Lyanna, but also Ashara. Edit- That line though about the Kings Guard being "far away" sticks at me

    Maegor's Holdfast - The Real tower of joy

    Still reading but you had me at hello, jk haha Definitely caught my eye with that nice little notice. Im going to keep reading, let my mind bake, and ill get back at you
  17. Good point, i've always like the idea better of Dany being the child of Ashara and that the lemon tree's were at Starfall or near abouts in Dorne.
  18. The Tourney of Harrenhal mirrors the Tourney of the Hand in more ways than one. Rhaegar wears black armor with Red Rubies while giving a Blue Rose to a Stark that he may not have even liked. Loras wears Silver Armor with Blue Saphires while giving a Red Rose to a Stark that he definitely did not like. Both Starks maids are taken, and in the case of Sansa, she was taken by neither participants of the Tourney. Rather, by a spectator in the crowd, Peter Baelish.
  19. Aemon the Dragon Knight, i imagine avoided offending the woman he originally wanted to crown by crowning his sister to save her honor from Aegon IV. Though, as rumor spread that Aemon and his sister had a thing, i imagine his "Crush" was likely as offended by the giving of the rose to Naerys as Ashara was to Lyanna getting her's. Edit- If Loras could've given the rose to his "Crush" instead of Sansa Stark, i imagine he would have too. I wonder if Renly got catty over Loras and his rose to Sansa.
  20. Agree, this is only if Rhaegar actually did like her like that (After what, an hour together? Can't imagine they hung out long before Rhaegar had to get back to the Tourney events), and kidnapped her. I dont think Ashara's dishonoring had to do with her being raped though and had more to do with the giving of the Flower that caused her to "look to Stark", the woman being given the rose, she was supposed to get. Hence the "grief over the loss of the man who dishonored her at Harrenhal". Brandon and Ashara can't have had Dany, there's no time unless Ashara want's to shag in filth, stench, and with rats. There is only three possible father's to Ashara's child but only 2 of those was killed for Ashara to grieve over their loss. Two princes's. Prince Rhaegar, and Prince Lewyn Martell who was known to have had a mistress. Ashara Dayne also danced with a K.G. member, though i like to think that she danced with her brother. Though her dancing with Oberyn may suggest otherwise. Though, Ashara Dayne's freak out over Barristan losing, Rhaegar winning or Rhaegar crowning Lyanna suggest it's likely Rhaegar. There is also a song about some "Stupid lady throwing herself from a tower over the loss of a prince" Arthur was Rhaegar's best friend, and likely knew of Rhaegar believing his son to be TPTWP and needed a third child and that Elia was unable. Ashara was lady in waiting to Elia also, and may have been designated to be the surrogate mother. Which would explain Elia's calm response at Harrenhal. (I dont think Aegon was born after Harrenhal or else it makes Rheagar and even bigger douche, at least if Aegon was born before hand, then Rhaegar went to Harrenhal knowing he needed a third child. Something so on his mind, that it has consumed his thought's since he was a child and reading something that led him to become a warrior. Something possibly worth more to Rhaegar than usurping his father.) Which would explain Ashara being the one originally intended to be given the rose, hence her dishonor. There would be no Rhaegar cheating on his wife, no annulment's you have no reasonable grounds for. None of that which goes against Rhaegar being the decent person we've been told about. Plus, we have no idea what or how House Dayne feel's about TPTWP legend. They are likely familiar at least with the Legend of the Last Hero i would think. They also happen to have the rarest sword in all of Planetos that we've seen (There are more swords of the Others that we see in the prologue to AGOT), that only goes to the worthiest member of their house.
  21. Well, if Roberts hammer has a spike on the opposite side (as usually they would for a war weapon), would stand better odds of getting through Rhaegars armor than Rhaegars sword getting through Roberts. Any advantage Rhaegar may have had in fast foot work and speed at dodging are negated a bit by slogging around in the river. His best bet at that point really is getting close past Roberts range with the hammer and pull a dirk, but have fun with that. Roberts a big boy with likely further arm reach than Rhaegar had. Last thing Rhaegar wants to do his physically wrestle or slug it out with Robert. Robert would crush him. Definitely a bawdy choice of weapon on Roberts part though for sure. Though i've wondered why the Targaryen's didn't bring any armor with them from Valyria. Just two swords. Seems odd. The steel must have been rare even to them.
  22. Mance Rayder, a Night's watch member with closer proximity to Lyanna, who mayyyyyy have been the Black Brother at Harrenhal, who's tradition involves giving a blue rose and stealing a bride, and is unmarried, anddddddddd currently involved in Jon Snow's life, a much likelier figure for Lyanna Stark to fall in love with. Certainly has more honor thus far than Rhaegar, who's traditions dont involve bride stealing and giving blue roses. Unless Bael is a Valyrian and known to Rhaegar for some odd reason.... (shrugs)
  23. Agreed. Then plotting to over throw your father. We still havn't been told what Rhaegar did when Duskendale happened. We know Tywin responded and sent in Barristan. That's it. Yet Aerys walks away from it distrusting Rheagar. Who indeed was using Harrenhal as a pretense to meet with lords to over throw his father, till Varys saved Aerys (Not the only time he looks out for Aerys) and informed him. Destroying Rhaegar's plan. What would have happened had Aerys and Lyanna never showed up? What was his plan?
  24. Personally, if Rhaegar had an older brother, i think Rhaegar would have been plenty happy to become a Maester or something and swear vows of chastity if you know what i mean. Maybe join the K.G. with his buddy Arthur, maybe elope with Jon Connington, or, i mean, become his maester. You know, like how Loras became a Rainbow Guard (KG) to Renly. The only thing that makes me question this otherwise (and Lyanna certainly doesn't), is the question of; who was Rhaegar going to crown Queen of Love and Beauty at Harrenhal before meeting Lyanna? Was it Elia? Or could it have been some one else at Harrenhal, who was dishonored at Harrenhal and supposedly killed her self at the end of the war for the loss of the man who dishonored her at Harrenhal. We know Brandon died at the Start of the War, and Ashara would have known this. And there is Baristans comment on Dany and Ashara
