    Every time lemons are mentioned in ASOIAF

    But then Doran's plans are not just flawed (which is ok them to be) but also nonsensical (which is not ok). Excuse me. Let me created another thread because I'm all offtopic here.

    But then Doran would know of Aegon. Those are orphans of Illyrio's trust.

    The thing is, there might be another player in Dorne besides the Martells.

    I had never noticed that there were Dornishmen in the Shy Maid.

    I dont know if it'd make you think differently but: F&B, The Heirs of the Dragon - A Question of Succession "... Driftmark (so named for the driftwood that the tides brought daily to its shores)..."

    Lands of Ice and Fire Maps

    George said in 2014 that map creation was "still on going". That's 2 years after TLOIAF was published.

    Wow, I never noticed that v.17

    I see but I fail to understand why "allowing the possible existence of such an oath actually allows more speculation". Would you mind further elaboration?

    You're right. Sorry. I don't understand. Mind to elaborate?

    Neither we are stating the opposite. However, Hound's admission was not done by the standard procedure, then any duebity, lack of confirmation makes room for speculation. As many have pointed out, Sandor expected to have to give up his right to lands and wife. So he consciously removed himself from House Clegane. But, since he wasn't a knight, and by tradition only knights can be kingsguard, people (us and the characters) can argue forever about if his admission was an unlawful act or not. And so on.

    This fits scenario #1

    Always the technicalities... Thanks!

    This quick "join and leave" is precisely why I think it was a plot demand. And leaving kingsguard makes it all even worse for Sandor (and House Clegane). No wise ruler would pardon him. Only Sansa would have an personal reason to accept him... Well, and maybe there we have it, a reasonable use for the unkiss: setting things up so Sansa have a reason to intercede for the Hound. If so, I see three possible scenarios: Sansa saves the Hound, and we'll have an at least platonic love story; Sansa intercedes for the Hound but he gets killed anyway, and then she'll hate the person who murdered him; Sansa recall that she have already did something similar for Dontos and it turned out that he sold her to Littlefinger, and then Sansa, in a similar fashion of Jon Snow's "kill the boy" demeanor, won't intercede for the Hound - and the love story expectancy will turn into ashes. Ok, enough with fanfics.

    With the "death" of Gregor, House Clegane is gone. GRRM made Sandor join the Kingsguard in order to remove him from the sucession line.

    @DominusNovus No, we don't. But if you'd like an opnion on this, that's what I've answered previously in this same thread: Looking back to it, I feel my last arguments lack accuracy. However, I think it still makes a good point, especially considering the little information we have.
