Doesn't a high septum or King the only ones allowed to Annul a marriage to royalty? Gilly read about a maester giving an annulment, not a high septum. Im gonna spitball here and say WHAT IF.. The mad king allowed the annulment because that would void Rhaegars children's claim to the thrown. We already know the mad king wanted Visery to be his heir and he didn't trust Rhaegar. He prob had no idea Rhaegar wanted a third child and already had one on the way by Lyanna. If the KIng allowed it for these reasons it would make sense. Rhaegar's ex wife and children were already at Kings Landing and the King needed them there just in case the Dornish found out about the Annulment. He would need to keep the Dornish Loyal to the Crown and using Elia and the children would give him that. The king could make Visery heir to the 7k and disinherit Rhaegar.
DaSh!t posted a topic in General (ASoIaF)Hey ya'll Ive seen lots of post about Ashara Dayne and how she committed suicide after she gave birth to a stillborn girl but what if her daughter wasn't stillborn? What if her mother claimed her daughter as her own. If Allyria was conceived at the Tourney of Harrenhal then she'd be born in 282AL. According to the Wiki she was betrothed to Beric Dondarrion in 294AL when she was about 12 years old. What if Ashara fell for Brandon and slept with him?? Then he left her to marry is betrothed Catelyn Tully.. Maybe Ned had intended to marry her to restore her honor as his brother was already betrothed. Ashara may have still killed her self but not because she had a still birth but because the suicide would be due to the guilt felt over Arthur death given that it was Ashara who told Ned how to find his sister which resulted in the fight at the Tower of Joy. She was just trying to help Ned find his sister and she ended up indirectly killing Arthur. "The crannogman saw a maid with laughing purple eyes dance with a white sword, a red snake, and the lord of griffins, and lastly with the quiet wolf...but only after the wild wolf spoke to her on behalf of a brother too shy to leave his bench." Ned is the quiet wolf while Brandon is the wild wolf.. I might be way off but I thought id share the post anyways
