    Small Questions v. 10106

    When you include the time needed to call the banners, and the variable winds, I’d say a month at least. But even then unless the entire northern army sailed to KL they wouldn’t be able to assault the city.

    Would Lyanna start a war for Robert if Rhaegar kidnapped him?

    No, because she has no power to declare war. Would Lyanna and Ned, along with Jon Arryn, convince their father to rebel? Possibly using Brandon’s marriage and a Lysa and Jon marriage? I can see it happening. Although I feel like Aerys is much more likely to be kidnapping Robert, with Rhaegar potentially using it as an excuse to force his father to abdicate.

    Poll: Is Lemore Actually Ashara?

    Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

    It’s interesting rereading and seeing little details that have since been retconned. While this size order may have been true during the conquest, we now know that Meraxes died significantly earlier than the others (and in Dorne, so she may never have been returned anyway), so should be noticeably smaller, as even Vhagar was almost on par with Balerion by the time she died.

    @DominusNovus I imagine Orys Baratheon’s marriage to Argella Durrandon (daughter of the last Durrandon King) helped a lot; in addition to it being a lot easier to accept House Baratheon as just a rebranded House Durrandon than if, say, House Connington had been raised above the other stormlords.

    Unless it involves Bran doing things through Weirwoods then no.
  7. I can see Brandon rushing to King’s Landing without consulting anyone. But surely Rickard would’ve informed Ned and Robert about the situation, at which point they would want to join him.

    Lancel also backs up her story when interrogated by Tyrion

    The colouring of Westerosi Houses

    For the other houses these signature looks are likely from the last few hundred years, not necessarily tracing that far back.

    Just an observation...

    Yeah, like B+A=J! It makes loads mor- *laughs* Sorry I couldn’t get through that with a straight face On a serious note, I think even now things can be pretty tinfoily at times. We’ve just been left to our own devices for too long.

    Wasn’t Robert literally hours from death at that point? I imagine the strain of being carried to the small council chambers or wherever would’ve finished him off. Although I suppose he could’ve called the small council to his deathbed to witness it, if his pride would permit them to see him in that state.

    He probably just thought it would be weird for pseudo-medieval-British characters to be saying ‘Fall’.

    Good point

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Has the prologue been confirmed to be Jeyne Westerling (or at least include her)? Because I was thinking that Jon was our only POV at the wall, and with him (at least temporarily) out of the picture we will need a new POV. And if we are to believe GRRM doesn’t wanna add more POVs the prologue would be a good option for this. Thoughts?

    They both seem to have been quite young when they started their enterprise, maybe teens. Then it would probably take at least 10 years for them to become that famous. So if Varys was invited 278 AC, he was likely born in the late 240’s, making him a few years younger than Aerys would be; and therefore a good 15 years older than Ned. That’s assuming Illyrio is the same age, he could easily be older, closer to Aerys’ age.
