    Robert's Kingsguard

    While a minor by our standards, in Westerosi culture Jaime was 16 and as such had reached his age of majority aka adulthood. Cersei came up with the ploy for him to join because at this point she was still operating under the assertion that Tywin would find a way to make her queen (which he ultimately did but not the way she thought) & therefore they'd be in close proximity. AS for her not thinking about her father, she was....just not in the way of him being hurt by the situation. Allegedly Tywin (or maybe it was mostly Hoster) was trying to orchestrate a match between Jaime and Lysa Tully that was the whole reason Jaime needed the ploy in the first place. So while Cersei may not have considered how Tywin would feel about loosing Jaime as his heir, she was certainly aware that taking Jaime off the board disrupted Tywins plans & she didnt care.

    Robert's Kingsguard

    Jaime and Barristan are the only two holdovers. The other 5 died in the rebellion. Darry & Lewyn Martell died at the Trident, and Oswell Whent, Gerold Hightower, & Arthur Dayne died at the Tower of Joy. As for what the members of Robert's KG did to earn it the answer is nothing. They were just another example of Robert being an idiot. For someone who hated Cersei, he tended to listen to her quite a bit, or at the least let her have her way. While Mandon Moore is perhaps deserving (Jaime considers him to be deadly in TCOK), the rest (possibly excluding Oakheart) are merely stooges loyal to Cersei. On one occasion Robert even successfully allowed Cersei to argue against a knight from the Stormlands. There's also that I cant fathom Jon Arryn offering posts to anyone who fought as a loyalist immediately after the war.

    Great Houses - Valyrian Steel Sword Names?

    NIghtfall was a Greyjoy blade, but even then they acquired it via the Iron Price as opposed to buying it or having it gifted to them.

    Great Houses - Valyrian Steel Sword Names?

    Visenya wasn't the one who died over Dorne, that was Rhaenys. Also, I've never heard any mention of the Targaryens having a third sword and in all honesty it wouldnt make sense for them to. Visenya carried one because she was a warrior, Rhaenys was not and as such likely would not have worn one. Even if she did, someone in Dorne wouldve claimed said sword so there would be a Dornish house with a VS blade.

    Great Houses - Valyrian Steel Sword Names?

    Thats the thing, most of Westeros' great houses dont have a VS sword. The Tully's dont have one, neither do the Greyjoys or Tyrells (which is odd because their bannermen do. The Baratheon's also dont have a VS weapon, nor the Martells. There are reasons for that though, the Tully's weren't exactly prominent lords at any point. They were never kings of the Rivers and Hills like the Mudd's or Justman's. The Greyjoys werent the ruler of the Iron Islands and the weapons owned by their bannermen were likely stolen in raids. The Tyrells were stewards so thats why they dont have one though its possible that House Gardener had one that was destroyed during the Field of Fire. The Baratheon's dont have one and Im not sure why. I would imagine that if house Durrandon had one Orys would've claimed it like he did everything else but there is no mention of that. The Martell's only became the dominant family in Dorne after the Rhoynar came over so they werent prominent enough to have one and I dont see Nymeria going looking for one given her history with Valyria. House Arryn also doesnt have one though House Royce did but it was lost during the Dance of Dragons. What I dont understand is how a house as notoriously poor as House Mormont has one, but other more prominent houses with long histories do not (Florent, Lefford, Rowan, etc.)
