[Pre-ADwD Spoilers] "New" POV 1 - Spoilers for ADwD in Pre-ADwD Archive Posted November 9, 2008 [quote name='aspasia' post='1581341' date='Nov 7 2008, 19.01']And yet a third puzzle. In the pile of decrees Tommen seals distributing the prizes from defeating Stannis, there's a paper LEGITIMIZING Ramsay Snow to Ramsay Bolton??? Who would have requested THAT? Is Roose actually so dependent on or close to or cooperating with his bastard son that he's willing to make him his legitimate heir, and won't the Freys explode when they find out about it? It pre-emptively displaces any offspring Bolton gets from Fat Walda, and wasn't half the point of marriage alliances for the Freys that they want part-Frey descendants inheriting whatever their girls marry into? Not that Roose Bolton will be much discouraged by fear of anything the Freys can come up with. Weasels versus wolverines.[/quote] I always saw this as Roose doublecrosing the Frey's. He, like most of the other Houses, probably feels that the Frey's are lying, cowardly weasels and he don't want a part-Frey ruling after he's gone.
