    Was rebellion inevitable against the Targaryen Dynasty ?

    That’s true. But Aerys has been antagonising the lords of Westeros for years. Like taking Tywins heir.

    Just remove Aerys from the equation and House Targaryen wouldn’t be facing rebellions.

    Why did Robb keep Edmure in the dark about his plan?

    I think they can fish from the ramparts of Riverrun. Not sure how much fish there is in those waters but that’s the idea.

    Robb lost his purpose and that's why he lost the War.

    No such thing as Villain and Heroes in this fantasy.
  5. A regime that overthrew the greatest dynasty in westerosi history isn’t a minor footnote in history. Yes Roberts reign was a shamble, but what he did during the rebellion and his following reign won’t be a minor footnote in history. Unlike the Blackfyres, the baratheons were pretenders that succeeded at overthrowing the dragons. If Daemon took the throne and lasted just 5 years before he was overthrown by a Targaryen, I don’t think his short reign of 5 years would be a minor footnote in history.
  6. Yes they most likely were. No doubt anyone that tried to take them in would be branded as a traitor to the realm.

    In this world. A kingdom is worth way more than a mere child or a princess.

    Why didn't Rhaenys do a harrenhal on Sunspear?

    During wartime, its understandable that they all resorted to the same level of ruthlessness. Lords and kings are different during war times. A kind-hearted lord (that cares for his smallfolk) will still pillage villages and castles during wartime if his men are in need of food, or if he also wants to harm the enemys demesnes. But by Nature Rhaenys isnt even close to Aegons and Visenyas level. Visenya was definitely the most ruthless of them all, whilst Aegon is the middle ground between Rhaenys and Visenya.

    Why didn't Rhaenys do a harrenhal on Sunspear?

    Rhaenys is described as kindhearted whilst Visenya is unforgiving and very serious. Aegon was a Targaryen lord and it was most likely his idea to conquer Westeros. This information would make Rhaenys the least ruthless of the siblings by default. You can’t put her on the same level as her siblings when its known that Rhaenys was the kind and the sweet one.

    Because Rhaenys is the least ruthless of them all.

    If you put Aegon, Visenya, and Rhaenys in a pot and had to choose which one is the most ruthless of them all. You’d obviously have Rhaenys at last position.
  12. Not sure why you quoting me for. This has nothing to do with what I just wrote. If youre trying bait people into arguments, I suggest you find someone else.
  13. Don’t think he was implying anything, he probably thinks they are hated or is unsure whether they are. So he asks the forums to help him with his curiosity.
  14. If Viserys offers to marry Margaery, its quite possible that the entire reach might join him. But Id see a couple reach houses siding with the baratheons. Some would be doubtful of being able to overthrow Robert and his power block of 5 great houses. Whilst others would get ambitious and would seek rewards by helping Robert put down the so called rebels. Were viserys to be already wed or is seeking for another marriage. Its likely that Mace and those loyal to him would side with whoever is most likely to win.

    Why did Jon Arryn raise his banners ?

    He probably didn’t see it as a just act and the fact that Rickard and Brandon got killed by the mad king, most likely made him want to rebel. Plus he saw both Ned and Robert as the sons he never had. He wouldn’t have let them fight this war by themselves. It would be out of character for him.
