  1. Half of his vassals(perharps even more) would abandon him and would start supporting Stannis. Stannis would probably end sitting in the Iron Throne. Daeneryes was far from Westeros, the Reach had no reason to support her. The Tyrells would lose Highgarden
  2. Not really. The Ottoman Empire was heavily dependet on slavery.

    Targayens exile based on jacobites

    I've always thought that the Blackfyres were the jacobites of the story. This would imply that the Blackfyres were actualy the rightfull kings though

    Which culture is the biggest?

    The one that won
  5. The carrot idea is insane. It would only make the ironborn even more insular than ever, and push the "greenlander" ironborn into the Old Way. Not only insane, but also impossible. The ironborn would never weakly accept the destruction of their holy places and fishing boats. The first Greyjoy Rebellion ended quickly because King Balon decided to bend the knee, but it could've lasted years and a lot of resources to truly end the rebellion if he didn't, fishers, common miners and farmers would all raise in rebellion agains't the invasors, probably even the thralls. The lords that buy metals from the Iron islands would stand agains't it too. I don't think Tywin would ever destroy the culture and economy of the islands. He didn't wanted to destroy the northern and river lords that fought agains't the crown after they abandoned the rebellion. They're as much traitors as the Greyjoys and a even bigger threat to the Lannisters than the ironborn. King Aenys I allowed lord Goren Greyjoy to banish the Seven from the Iron Islands. Another King could break this promise, but it would weaken the Crown's prestige. Stick is the better idea. Seats in the Small Council and perharps a marriage within the royal family would cement their loyalty. The canal would be good too, if possible.

    Second Strongest Houses?

    Dorne: Yronwood according to Arianne herself, and we know that most of the dornish fertile land is under their control Reach: Hightower North: Manderlys, they control the one of the few cities in Westeros. The Boltons are the number 1 now, considering that they have the Hornwood lands, Winterfell, are the LPs and most of the northern army that didn't died in war are Bolton men Riverlands: Freys. They won a lot with the Red Wedding and they have a well positioned bridge. Iron Islands: Harlaw, the Goodbrothers are powerfull, but they don't really rule over all of Great Wyk. Stormlands: House Swann, considering that they have lands near the Elayne, which is the major river of the region Vale: the Royces, though the Graftons are near

    What if House Tyrell rebelled?

    After Renly's death the Tyrells will not side with the Lannisters, but with Stannis. Stannis end as King and the Lannisters lose their heads
  8. Well, not necessarily. If you think about it, ice/cold is just the lack of heat/energy. Perharps R'hllor is the only god there and his priests just understood the message wrong

    Daenerys Demurred

    I don't see this hint. The Dragon of the North was just a khal that burned a city, it doesn't mean that the dothraki want to worship them, no more than the dornish want to worship vipers(the "Red Viper"). We don't know why Drogo married Dany. All we have is speculation. Besides, it's a very small number of dothraki that actualy worship her, mostly the ones that decided to stay with her even after the witch used blood magic(which is illegal), so they're not really the typical dothraki. The valyrians of old had dragons, but the dothraki didn't worshipped them. A dragon is not a stallion, and the stallion itself is the male gender of horse. How can a woman claim to be a stallion? The House of Undying is unreliable. It shows past, future and what could've been. It maybe very well be the reaction of the dosh khaleen for Dany being the mother of Rhaego(which was supposed to be the Stallion until his death).

    Daenerys Demurred

    How the hell will she do it? She's having a lot of trouble into convincing the ghiscari to obey her, how would she convince a bunch of savages to do it?
  11. Not really. The Mootons, Darrys, Brackens and Blackwoods all have their origins before the arrival of the andals, and the Mallisters and Vances are andals themselves. Some of them used to be kings. Among the great houses of the RL, only the Freys and whatever ruled Harrenhall were members of the "new nobility".

    Daenerys Demurred

    There will be no unified Westeros anymore. The winter has come and Dany is still in Essos with no intention of sailing West. By the time she reach the Seven Kingdoms there will be nothing but corpses to rule.

    Why Doran's plan is so bad?

    It seems to me that Doran is a weak prince. He could've joined Renly or Stannis agains't the Lannisters, but he probably thought it would be too dangerous. He could've not liked the Baratheons, but it was better than awaiting nearly two decades for the arrival of a dragon King and his army(that he never had). Long master plans usually fail, there are too many variables that can destroy it. Taking the opportunities that appear in front of you is the best way, like what Tywin did in the Robert's Rebellion.

    The Battle for Sea Dragon Point

    I have deep suspicions about the CotF motives, but I don't think they would judge someone for what their ancestors did thousands of years ago

    The Most Deserving of Mercy?

    Mirri Maz Duur deserve mercy there. Khal Drogo was the scum of Essos, the world is better without him. The soldiers that Stannis killed should have had a cleaner death though. Beheading perharps, burning is way too cruel.
