    Just how many people knew about the incest?

    And how exactly is that contrary to my point?

    Well Littlefinger is well aware of the Stannis' position, which isn't good in terms of becoming a king. He needed to take down the stable rule of Robert. If he was so scared of Stannis becoming a King he would be trying to stabilise Robert's reign not shake it up. Which we can all agree he does with many of his actions. Why would he be giving hints to Ned about the incest, show Robert's bastards ect.

    I never said Barristan knew, as he didn't attend small council. Littlefinger definitely had motive to tell Jon Arryn, since it triggers these events: - Jon Arryn doesn't trusts the Lannisters and doesn't wants to foster Robin with Tywin. - Jon Arryn wants to keep Robin safe and sent him to true heir Stannis to foster him. - Lysa doesn't wants to have Robin taken away from her so she is motivated to kill Jon Arryn and escape the city. If Jon Arryn isn't informed about it he lets Robin stay with Lysa in KL for longer and isn't killed. Stark-Lannister tensions don't happen ect. My point was Littlefinger was source of information that the rumor spread on the small council. Littlefinger has a pretty good spy network as well that's how he probably found out. He maybe hinted/told Pycell and Stannis. Stannis told Jon ect. Renly was probably also informed of it but he might not have believed it, considering he wanted to replace Cersei with Margery he probably did.

    Says 200k Crown soldiers. We don't know his thoughts and he has a reason to say its a ploy since Renly's claim to throne was being loved and having a big army not succession laws.

    Everyone on the small council knew because Lord Baelish found out and told everyone (Baratheon brothers, Pycelle, Vayrs already knew and at last Jon Arryn).

    dragonriding ability

    Well hair colour and eyes most likely have nothing to do with dragon riding ability so why did you write this essay. You said it yourself that dragon riding gene is very dominant and you are now arguing as if it follows the recessive rules of blonde hair. Since you you claim that dragon gene is dominant that means 'pure' Targaryens could very likely have some non-dragon recessive genes in them that are not expressed which would mean they are not pure as their children could have recessive combination of bb. It is also very hard to believe that Plum being 1/64 Targaryen would still have that gene. Genetics are complex, what we are taught in school is just a basic simplest example possible and I don't think George would be putting complex genetics into the story. I don't believe that genes or blood matter for dragon riding in the first place anyways.

    This is not how genetics work though. If your grandgrandfather had blonde hair and all your other predecessors to that point had black you could still have blonde hair expressed or still carry that gene. So two people with black hair marrying doesn't mean their children will have pure black hair genes and no chance for anything other.

    This is assuming Rhaegar was 100% Targaryen which is impossible since Daeron II his ancestor married a Martell woman and so did many other ancestor mix with other Westerosi houses. So theory you need to be 1/2 Targ or more falls pretty fast.

    Makes sense of course, but it could still just be their superstition and not an actual thing. Zoroastrian kings would do the same to keep the blood of their family pure, which just led to inbreeding.

    Honestly I don't see any evidence for dragon breeds belonging to certain Valyrian dragonlord family. You can explain dragonhorns for stealing already tamed dragons or dragons that weren't tamed yet. Dany's dragon eggs are really old and I'm supposed to believe it just happened to be Targareyen dragon eggs? A bit too convenient.

    Umm where is that supposed to be said. Or is that just your idea?

    dragonriding ability

    I don't think dragon riding ability is necessarily connected to genes/blood. Logically there is nothing that would prove it. You might say that every person in the books that rides a dragon has Valyrian blood, but there is Nettles, of course she could be a Targaryen bastard but there is no proof she is (you can't say that she is a Targaryen bastard because she can ride a dragon when you are trying to prove dragon riding and blood are connected, just not how logic works). There is actually more people that have Valyrian blood and failed to ride a dragon than those who do not have it and failed. I think that Valyrian dragonlord houses believed and wanted others to believe only them can bond with dragons. Why? Because that gave them special status and divine power over masses of people. Same way that nobles of Medieval Europe convinced small folk that their blood is special and are chosen by God to be something more than others. That is why they kept inbreeding and whenever a non Valyrian rode a dragon they said he must be a Valyrian bastard/have their blood. Now I'm not saying that dragon riding is not connected to blood, I'm just saying there is also decent possibility that it is not and I think it would fit the writers personality and themes he likes to write about. I don't think GRRM is someone that would have a them of blood meaning so much for the story. By saying 'Valyrian' I always mean Valyrian noble dragonlord houses of which only Targareyen house survived with a name. I am 100% sure that there is blood of other dragonlord houses in the world because they had bastards that left Valyrian before the doom.

    Military of Skagos/ Skagosi Rebellion

    From what we know from what George said Dorne, Vale and North have equal army size. Looking at Dorne they appear to have around 20-50k, with 30k being most accurate estimate. Vale Lords Declarant have 20k which means Vale also has around 30k, while leads us to believe North should have around the same number 30k. Semi-cannon sources put them at 45k though.

    Warfare In Westeros

    Knights in battles would always ride, so their primary weapon would be a lance. Pike formation would counter Knights but would be countered by ranged units. Knights would usually be charging enemy knights or an non-pike infantry formation. In a battle knight with a onehanded sword and a shield would beat the one with a twohanded sword, since twohanded weapon would be easily blocked with shield and heavy to use and owner would get tired and be defeated. I don't think sword was a bad weapon in the battlefield for a knight. Weapons against heavy armour would be maces, military hammers, pollaxe ect. that would heave a chance to disfigure armour or penetrate it. And for longbows they didn't actually penetrate plate armour but they would go through horse armour causing horse to collapse and rider falling down often dying. That is how english longbowmen killed french knights. Problem with longbow is that it requires training since you are a little boy, in order to use it you would train whole life and have deformed hand muscles from it. Crossbow had much slower fire rate but anyone could use it but would also usually not be able to penetrate plate armour.

    How do you think Tommen and Myrcella will die?

    To be fair Cersei is getting fat she could become big enough.
