    Flower on a bed of blood

    I never saw the flower as a symbol of virginity surreptitiously taken by Rhaegar. I always presumed it was from the crown of love and beauty that he gave Lyanna when he won the tournament at Harrenhall.

    Real life meets Iron Maiden

    The London skyline doesn't look all that different from Brave New World. or Infinite.

    Is the author's name Richard Reese Martin? He is listed as a commentator in the back of 1984.

    Most Powerful Houses- what evidence?

    Casterly rock, d'oh! Another aspect to cognify is the age of the castle. Casterly Rock is obviously the old kingdom of the Seven Kingdoms. The artwork I've never seen before - Casterly Rock and Lannisport, I didn't know how close they were Casterly Rock and Lannisport [url=https://awoiaf.westeros.org/images/7/72/Casterly_rock_by_feliche.jpg][img=https://awoiaf.westeros.org/images/7/72/Casterly_rock_by_feliche.jpg][/img][/url] Yep, now we know why Balon Greyjoy said the Lannisters are too strong. Tyrell's castle Highgarden is impressive but their town is contained within castle walls.

    Black sigil

    I have to wonder, what is the meaning of the black sigil on Ran's profile picture? Is is supposed to be the same sigil that is on Sleeping Sun 2005's banner?

    Most Powerful Houses- what evidence?

    Who has the biggest castle? And who has the castle in the background of this bulletin board? I've tried the westeros wiki and I cannot peg it. The castle and the town around it represent the number of retainers in employ by the house. The total number of cities within a fiefdom may represent the theoretical number of vassals that are sworn to your castle. But I'd look straight at castle and castle town. The answer is Hightower! House Tyrell's Highgarden is the most impressive castle, but where's the town around the castle? Hightower is sworn to Tyrell.

    Bulletin Board background

    What castle is that in the background? It has giant lions at the feet of the tower. The lions are a hint, House Lannister, Casterly Rock.

    Inheritance terminology

    The English language is shrinking. Primogeniture is the term for the firstborn son getting his father's entire estate. However, I am more interested in a type of inheritance where the eldest daughter's husband inherits if the eldest son's line is unavailable, is it called patrilliloquy? I used to remember what these words meant clearly.

    Is Ned Stark really that honorble?

    Ned fibbed the king's will. Now, if the eldest son is killed (hypothetically) is it the 2nd son or the husband of the eldest daughter who inherits? Heraldricly, Ned put Sansa in a really bad position. Maybe she marries and rules the north. But if her father was a traitor, what kind of claim does she have?

    The lie of a love story

    I have sadly thought that the notion that there is a real love story between Rhaegar and Lyanna was wishful thinking. But it led to some good art work. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=je5zsO3b&id=68215F39BCB1ADA9AC28A3CC07E3BDB5BF0A5382&thid=OIP.je5zsO3b18ma8f9yntsV-wHaE8&mediaurl=http%3a%2f%2fstatic.tumblr.com%2fbcu7zfk%2fLLMm86ls3%2frhaegar_and_lyanna.jpeg&exph=321&expw=480&q=lyanna+rhaegar&simid=607999107300721361&selectedIndex=126&ajaxhist=0
