    Maybe this should be it’s own thread, but since Tysha really was a common girl who married Tyrion, does that mean that his marriage to Sansa is fraudulent? Because in this case, Tyrion’s first marriage would have been real, as well as consummated. Even if Tywin “annulled” it, he technically wouldn’t be able to.

    technically yes. Tysha was still Tyrion's wife since only high septon can annul marriages in this world. but Tysha and Tyrion's marriage was problematic on its own. if I remember correctly there were no witnesses in their wedding, only a drunken septon whereas Tyrion and Sansa had a wedding party and everything . and even if we take their marriage as valid, Sansa's marriage to Tyrion won't be affected because there is no proof for the first marriage ( I hardly think a westerland septon , Jaimie or the lost bride say anything)

    I haven't read all of these replies, but here's my thoughts on the idea of Bran becoming king:

    I simply can't see it happening. It wouldn't feel right, or feel in-line with everything Martin has written about him for 25 years. From the very first book, and increasingly so with each passing one, the books have hinted that Bran's destiny is something far more unusual and other-wordly than sitting on a throne and running a kingdom. Like, I'd go so far as to say that it would feel more fitting for Bran to "transcend" into some kind of god or spirit. Any fool can be a king - the series has shown that repeatedly. But only Bran can do what he's doing. It would be one of the biggest cop-outs in fantasy history if Bran just ends up being a mere king. It just wouldn't feel right. He's meant to do something far greater and more distinctive. I just know it.

    I agree with you , Bran seems to be destined to do more than being just another king . though the show runners said that "king Bran" came from Martin himself and as @The Bard of Banefort says Bran has proved himself more or less capable of ruling . still I don't think he'll sit the Iron Throne or any Westerosi throne for that matter . I think he'll be some sort of peacemaker king . someone who brings back children of the forest perhaps and brings magic back . he might even make some sort of peace with the others after realizing what they want and who/what they are.  he'll be someone in my opinion who guides kings/queens of westeros the way bloodraven wasn't able to do . maybe that would be the way he becomes the(green) king :) ... who knows?! but I don't buy it for a second that he becomes king of westeros by choice of a great council of nobles... they wouldn't look twice at Bran stark the cripple magical old-gods worshipper skinchanger weirdo boy who was beyond the wall all this time. not when Jon, Sansa and even Rickon ( who will be back in the story in winds and is capable of producing heirs in the future ) are his rivals as head of house stark .
