    Mortality?

    It was the part he loved best.

    Look at actual royal bloodlines. I'm not sure if there are "rules," but from what I can tell, if your direct ancestor is on the throne (ie. father, grandmother, great-grandfather) you get the princely title. Once you get a few generations removed and the crown passes to an uncle or aunt the title seems to disappear. In Westeros, we don't have any kind of sample size to look at, but beyond "Prince of Dragonstone" the prince title doesn't seem to mean anything. Again, since all the nobles are simply "lord" we have no real sense of how titles were/are used. It would be weird for some family to use "Prince of Karhold" to describe their own lordship while being pretty far removed from the succession of the "Kings of Winter".

    That doesn't follow at all. When "prince" is used to mean son of a king, it is generally not passed down to sons of princes that are not in line for the throne.

    I think it's pretty low priority too. They could have figured out who should hold it, but they're not going to send any military strngth to press that claim. Even if it is lightly held. Or maybe whoever Beric's heir is went ahead and pledged fealty, but that wasn't important enough for anyone to notice.

    I think it's more that she thinks that glamouring it makes it Lightbringer. She's too committed to her belief in Stannis to accept that she's cheating.

    I'm not sure that Mel doesn't believe it either. She's delusional.

    I think I found your problem. I've got nothing against the show, but the shift in format fundamentally alters the way characters are developed. Each book chapter is written from the point of view of a character so we get their internal thoughts and a much better understanding of who they are.

    We can only hope his resurrection involves bellows and chocolate.

    Yes. He uses "Lord" as a catch-all designation, which causes a bit of ambiguity. If it said something to the effect of "last King of the North, first Duke of Winterfell," it would show that it's a new title ranked below the king. But in Westeros, everyone from Starks down to Lockes are just "Lords."

    All Kings are Lords, but not all Lords are Kings. Whether they used "Lord" as titles or not, they had lordship over Winterfell (and the entire North).

    There doesn't. There might be, but that's not part of any of the prophecy as far as we know. People just like parallelism.

    A shroud can be something that hides something- ie. "the truth is shrouded in darkness." It can also be any garment that covers the body. The wedding cloaks that we've seen, meant to represent protection, could be described as shrouds.

    Of course not. Prophecy is always fluid. If it gets too specific, it doesn't work.

    Even if they are familiar with the story, why would they assume that a second Nissa Nissa is necessary? Why do people here assume that a second Nissa Nissa is necessary?
