    Wow, I never noticed that. Vol. 18

    Never noticed in my first read that Renly basically told Ned at the hands tourney that Tyrion didn't win that dagger from Littlefinger.

    Varys Blackfyre hint?

    Yes, that's exactly what I ment in the OP too, I should have been more clear. I never ment to imply there might be a magical connection between Targ blood and knowing secrets if the Red Keep. Also, we see Varys, through Aryas POV, in those same tunnels not too long after, escorting Illyrio. Though, we don't know at the time it's acctually Varys.
  3. Not really a minor house, but I`m desperate to know more about the Hightowers, by far the most facinating house in my mind. I want to know more about the Hightower black stone base (built by dragonlords). Why is the island it`s located on called Battle Isle? What dragon did Uthor slay? A wild one, or one of the dragonriders of GEotD? Did Uthor rebell against the GEotD? Seem to recall from somewhere that the Hightowers are as old a house as the Daynes, so seems possible. Anyways, of the minor houses; Corbray is interesting with Lady Forlorn, though I hate Lyn. The Daynes obviously, and the Blackmonts (because they are fun to start with in CK2-AGoT). And last, but not least, The Farwynds of Lonely Light.
  4. I`ve just started a reread, and I noticed something as Cat and Ser Rodrik is approaching Kings Lnding in the tyroshi galley. I`m sorry if this has been brought up, but I`ve spent the last couple years reading old threads (on page 450ish in this section of the forum now) and can`t recall seeing it mentioned. Cat is standing by the railing and is thinking about KL and the Red Keep, and here`s the part that caught my eye: "Aegon the Conqueror had commanded it built (Red Keep). His son Maegor the Cruel had seen it completed. Afterwards he had taken the head of every stonemason, woodworker, and builder who had labored on it (after a great feast). Only the blood of the dragon would ever know the secrets of the fortress the Dragonlords had built, he vowed." Might this be a hint of Varys being a Blackfyre as so many theorize? As we know, Varys do know the secrets of the Red Keep, and I`m no talking about actual secrets (whispers), but the hidden and secret tunnels and all that. I can`t think of anyone who knows the fortress as he does. Anyways, I don`t know what I think of the whole fAegon Blackfyre theory, but this might be something to consider.

    Destiny of Jon Snow

    I honestly don't see how Gendry Baratheon is part of the Targ dynasty. Roberts (great?) grandmother or something was a Targ, Orys was a Targ bastard (probably) 300+ years ago. By your logic there would be potentially hundreds of people in the Targ dynasty still, as everyone with a Targ in their family tree is a Targ? Makes no sense to me. And Robert won the throne in a rebellion, through conquest, he didn't inherit it, though his Targ ancester was used as an argument Robert should have the throne, and not Stark or Arryn.

    And he is a Baratheon. There's obviously a lot of people in Westeros that has Targ blood, but the house Targaryen is gone.

    Destiny of Jon Snow

    In my mind he left the wall to go build that cabin Ygritte talked about. No King Beyond the Wall, no duties, just a cabin in the real north to live out his unnatural long undead life in peace. Also, I don't know if wights can reproduce, but I'd think not, so the Targ line ends here.

    SotM Davos Dayne + Nymeria

    Interesting. Do you have a source? I`d like to know more about the show lore too, didn`t even know they had that. When/how did anything that happened with the Daynes a couple thousand years ago relate to the show, though? The show doesn`t even mention the Daynes except for Arthur at the ToJ, does it?
