    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    I'm not talking about the First men who came over to Westeros. You said the Yronwoods, Gardeners, Durrandons, Lannisters, Darklyns, Reynes, Royces, Brackens are all older than the Starks. There is no information to come to that conclusion. They all claim to be founded in the age of heroes and that's it. Also the existence of settlements in Starfall and Oldtown doesn't mean that houses Dayne and Hightower created them or even existed at the time. Houses Dayne and Hightower might have built on what was already there later on. Again there is not enough info to conclude anything.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    I never said they weren't. Where are you getting this info? There is no information about all those houses you list as Dornish First men houses being older than any other house. They all claim to be from the age of heroes, the Starks included.

    House Targaryen, the First Family of ASOIAF

    So the best choice of ruler for Westeros are two people that have never set foot there since they were babies? Both have no idea how to rule Westeros better than any of the current contenders. You say that Stannis is out of touch with Westeros. He's more in touch with his own home than two people who have been raised in another continent with different customs. People don't like Stannis because of his personality, but this donsn't mean he'll be a bad king. Probably the best ruler Westeros could have had was Tywin lannister, if nothing else he was a great ruler.

    I would say that houses Gardener, Stark, Lannister, Dayne, Hightower and Durrandon are all older than house Targaryen. Weren't the Valyrians still sheep-herding folk while the Long night was happening and the great houses of Westeros were being formed?
  5. Jon might still be a bastard, just Raegar's bastard. So he would not have been the rightful king anyway, meaning it would have passed to Viserys if the Targaryens had not been usurped.
  6. He said so himself in an interview that the north is like Scotland: Q: The books have a strong sense of place. How did that translate to the screen? A: King’s Landing, that’s the capital, is not quite so tropical — in the books it’s more like medieval Paris or London and the north is more like Scotland. You don’t get the real tropical stuff til you get down south to Dorne. You can read it here: http://www.denverpost.com/2012/05/31/game-of-thrones-author-george-r-r-martin-on-sex-violence-and-t-v/
  7. I think you're on to something. I also think there are hints throughout the books that he had a midichlorian count that was higher than maester Yoda.
  8. This should be moved to the objects of ice and fire forum.

    Most evil act in the series?

    Walder Frey wasn't forced to do anything. He willingly joined the rebellion and got a good deal out of it (granted that deal fell through). What about the thousands of people that were also slaughtered? It wasn't just Stark lords that were killed, there were thousands of soldiers that thought they were among allies. There is no way to defend the red wedding as an appropriate response to breaking a bretrothal. Walder Frey should have withdrawn his support of Robb and if he wanted revenge should have gave his men to the iron throne and Robb would have been dealt with when the war was over.

    Worst lines of dialogue in the show?

    "where are my niece and nephew? Let's go murder them"

    Is Cersei a better ruler than Robert?

    Robert knew he was a shit king so he employed the best people to run the kingdom for him and this resulted in years of peace. This makes him better than Cersei as she thinks shes a good ruler but she clearly is not.

    Is The Targ Merrying Targ Really Incest.

    I fully expect Jon and Dany's son to have the Habsburg Jaw. Hail King Charles II Targaryen.
  13. Out of interest who are the uncles and nieces that have been married? I have never heard that before. I think Jon should find any incest unacceptable as it is a pretty big no no in the old gods faith, right up there with violating guest rights. Look at how he reacts to Craster and how it lowers his opinion of Jeor Mormont a bit when he finds out the watch knows what Craster was up to.

    So what happens to House Stark?

    It'll be the same situation that the Mormonts are in. Maege Mormont is the current ruler and her daughter Alysane is of house Mormont and is the heir. Alysane Mormont has two children who are also of house Mormont. It's been done in the past and is currently happening in some families so I don't see a problem with either Sansa or Arya continuing the Stark family. Also to the above I took it that Jon is the king in the north operating out of Winterfell but Winterfell is still owned by the Starks and is currently ruled by Sansa.
