    Damage done by the deaths of Daemon and Aemond Targaryen

    Pretty great. The greens lose their greatest dragon and the Prince Regent, the blacks lose one of their largest dragons (loss which becomes even greater after the storming of the dragon pit) and their chief commander - and maybe Daemon's friends.
  2. I have a headcanon that Morning eventually died in battle. Alys Rivers has a dragon and a son in Harrenhal after all, who might grow up to be a pretender late in the reign of Aegon III.

    [SPOILERS] Family trees and successions

    Rhaenys Targaryen wife of Corlys Velaryon had a daughter, Laena, and a son, Laenor, not daughters Rhaena and Aerea. Rhaena was the daughter of Aenys Targaryen and Alyssa Velaryon, Aerea was the daughter of Rhaena and Aegon Targaryen (children of Aenys and Alyssa).

    [spoiler] The Artwork

    The one with Aemond and Lucerys is inaccurate. The boy riding the larger dragon has dark hair, when Aemond, who rode Vhagar, had silver hair, unlike Lucerys who had brown. This was an important plot point. Did Elinor Costayne wait until after she had climbed the throne to react to Maegor's death? I think Alysanne looks too old in the picture of hers and Jaehaerys's marriage on Dragonstone - wasn't she like, thirteen? On the other hand, Jaehaerys looks too young in his coronation.

    If Rhaegar had become King, what crown would he have worn?

    I believe he would have a new crown made, something gold with gemstones, more elaborate than Aegon III's, softer than Maekar's, and simpler than Aegon IV's.

    [SPOILERS] Illnesses fit for a Targaryen to die

    The very book that suggests Gael died of fever mentions that what she actually did was throw herself into the Blackwater. If Aegon III did not die of tuberculosis, why did Yandel not say so? What reason could there be for people to hide his cause of death? And there doesn't seem to be anything supernatural in the Shivers, or the winter fever, or the Great Spring Sickness Like genes and incest in Westeros work differently than in our world, illnesses and sicknesses work different too, and are more deadly, without being magical and unnatural. Targaryens aren't immune to diseases, no more than they are fire-proof. You can ask Maegelle, Baelon, Maekar and many others to tell you that.

    [SPOILERS] Illnesses fit for a Targaryen to die

    But didn't Aegon III eventually die of some illness? He's far from an example of an immune Targ. Daeron II too was of Valyrian descend (his most recent non-Valyrian ancestor that we know of being Rodrik Arryn, his great-great-great-grandfather), but that did not prevent him from dying during the Great Spring Sickness.

    [SPOILERS] The Sons of the Dragon (extended version)

    I don't really see Maegor as Aerys II-before-Aerys II. He was cruel and a psychopath, but I don't think he was delusional. He knew he would be soon dethroned, there was nothing he could do about it, and chose to kill himself rather than suffer the humiliation of being arrested, thrown into a cell and executed.

    [SPOILERS] The Sons of the Dragon (extended version)

    I think he killed himself. He knew there was no way he could win and hold the Throne, and solved this problem with the only way he had ever known - violence.

    [spoiler] How gray is Prince Daemon after all?

    Completely agree. Daemon is supposed to be 'light and dark in equal parts' but... we never see it? We see him degrade his first wife Rhea and her homeland the Vale all the time (but does try to steal said homeland once she's dead), jape about his infant nephew Baelon dying, child-grooming his 14-year-old-niece Rhaenyra, possibly murdering the son of his greatest ally Laenor, sending Blood and Cheese to kill a perfectly innocent 6-year-old Prince Jaehaerys, and to counter all that... what? What he did that made him a good person? The fact that he was beloved amongst Kingslanders and the City Watch? Well every murderer has loved ones, that doesn't make them any less of a murderer. And him being a dragonrider and good with sword means nothing to me, wielding Dark Sister and being badass is no personality trait.

    [SPOILERS] Illnesses fit for a Targaryen to die

    There is no description for the Great Spring Sickness, right? That septon in Sworn Sword merely said that victims would die within a day and four out of ten died, but never said what they looked like.

    [spoilers] Aerea

    She would have never be allowed to succeed when children or granchildren of Jaehaerys lived, Balerion or not. They others had Vhagar, Caraxes, Vermithor and Silverwing. Enough dragons to take down Balerion, no matter how large. If married to Aemon or Baelon, she wouldn't have been queen either, since they both predeceased Jaehaerys.

    [SPOILERS] Family trees and successions

    Wasn't Aegon's father's name Aerion? Has it been changed?
  15. Is Aemma and Viserys's son that died in cradle (not Baelon, the other one) given a name?
