  1. This. This is huge. Aemond Targaryen never married into the Baratheons once Borros sobered up. Hell his own mother didn't want anything to do with him.
  2. Thats interesting. It seems Westerosi infantry and mounted warriors were far less trained than their real world western medieval counterparts.

    Would be interesting if Viserys carried/incubated his grandchildren's eggs himself and would be telling Aegon ll couldnt hatch an egg himself, perhaps because he was infertile after being burned he couldnt hatch an egg.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    Im sure Jaeherys thought a lot about succession issues and potential civil wars.A spare targaryen wife for just in case if another dies is far better than one marrying into another family, such as the Hightowers.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    I'm curious why didn't the Alysanne and Jaehaerys hold off marrying their later daughters. Viserra couldve easily married Viserys or Daemon. You'd think they would value 'spare wives' more.
  6. Was there are a specific thought why the Crown doesn't have a somewhat more robust state apparatus? I think medieval France had a very large amount(thousands) of Tax Collectors, secular priests, and Magisters helping to run the state regardless who is King.
  7. I feel most lords now have insufficient sources of revenue. Granted, there is far less castles in Westeros than in Medieval Europe, but surely most would be hard to maintain on given revenue.
  8. That makes sense. The land issue is interesting or the controlling mechanisms of private ownership. Were they ever limited? I know in England for a while it was illegal for a Norman to sell land to AngloSaxons.
  9. I was always curious to any contractual or feudal duties smallfolk. In France, serfs or commoners were obligated to do 10 -12 days of work for a lord for 2 months. Granted most feudal serf laws were implented by the Normans. Do smallfolk have rights of passage anywhere? Or is there movement greatly restricted?

    for what its worth, komodo dragons can reproduce asexually. Complex process, but they can do it.

    Drogon once in Valyria, had eggs. Aerrae couldn't control Drogon until Drogon and her were in trouble.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    I think its fair to say the Citadel through the rites of its orders limits the spread of knowledge and ways of thinking. It perhaps causes prejuideces amongst nobles and commoners alike much like Jesuits were seen as the bane of every catholic european countries.

    Or create an undead Daeron.
  14. I know. I don't think Daemon was ever someone who would shield his bastards from riding dragons in a time of war.
