    You are right I suppose. The Targs did some good things. the incest just throws me off.

    GoT Actors in Other Stuff - Part 2

    Somebody may have already mentioned this, but I'm not about to read 28 pages of responses so.. Was watching Mocking Jay part 2 today and noticed both Brienne and Margeary, Gwendoline Christie and Natalie Dormer.

    But some of those people you mentioned care about the common folk. I see what you're saying, but wouldn't a good king at least think about it? do smalls things to work towards it in the future? I guess what I'm getting at is this.. the targs knew that a handful of their predecessors would be bat shit crazy. Why continue that reign for centuries? I guess there was the Aegon who didn't want his kids to marry each other, but isn't he the only one who mentions it? And one of his sons married his daughter anyway. The others went out of their way to marry relations. maybe democracy is a stretch, but why not find a way to stem the flow of crazy??

    hence why they aren't the best people.

    Why not eventually implement it? why did the next targ kings continue with the monarchy, even after seeing what happens when a king is terrible? the Targs had a thirst for power. It's why they inbred, it's why they continued to crown their own sons.

    Darkstar’s Identity and Doran’s Plan – spoilers

    True, but the OP seemed to think the Dayne traits came from the Valyrians, which George has stated isn't so.

    GRRM has stated the Daynes do not owe their silver hair and purple eyes to the Valyrians. They've been that way for thousands of years, before the freehold was established.

    it's fitting I suppose (since this is asoiaf) that characters who appear good have their flaws. With the targs, the incest thing is far from moral, especially once they realized it was making future kings potentially insane. And was it really moral to say "comply with our rule, or die by fire?" I'm not so sure. Sure Aegon unified westeros, but he did it through force. And I'm sure horrific things were happening there, perhaps the targs alleviated the fighting between regions, for a time. But their system of government is harmful to the commoners, it eventually leaves them behind. If the targs were that wonderful and kind, they would have implemented a democracy, instead of a monarchy. Perhaps that will be Daenerys' legacy.
