    From ADwD - Davos II: What kind of weapon is a spitfire?

    Northern Coinage

    From ACoK - Bran II: What would, aside from King Robb, be displayed on the coinage of the Kingdom of the North and the Trident? What would be the texts written on them? Would there be any differences between the coins to be used in the North and in the Riverlands?
  5. Theon had inside knowledge of Winterfell, so he was able to sent four men over the walls with grappling claws and ropes, and they opened a postern gate for the rest of his men. The Ironmen then by surprise overwhelmed the token garrison that Ser Rodrik Cassel had left at Winterfell, since Ser Rodrik had taken every man of fighting age he could lay his hands on to Torhenn's Square. There even wasn't a guard at Bran's door when Theon took Winterfell.
  6. Before the books commenced Littlefinger was way beneath the birth and station of the Lady Catelyn Tully Stark, so even if he would pull off the tremendously difficult feat of killing Ned on his home turf he would never be considered as a prospective spouse for her, if she were to remarry at all. Littlefinger could marry Lysa in ASoS only because: Lysa is an infatuated idiot; it was in the interest of the powers-that-be, Tywin Lannister & Co, to let him marry Lysa because they wanted to get the Vale in their fold so they granted him what was societally necessary to so: the Lordship of Harrenhal and the Lord Paramountship of the Trident.

    Appropriate Punishment for Catelyn

    What would have been an appropriate punishment for Catelyn for setting Jaime Lannister free without Robb's leave?

    Why does Balon Greyjoy want to attack the North?

    Because he is Balon. In other words: not the sharpest knife in the box, and a bit of an idiot actually. The North is too vast by a country mile for the Ironborn to hold. If he had half a brain, he would have made common cause with Robb.

    What does such a Westerosi peace banner look like? A white flag? A Rainbow flag?

    Dorne and Landed Knights

    Any knight can create another knight. And Westeros has more than its fair share of unworthy knights. A father who is a landed knight will naturally arrange for his male heir to be created a knight as a matter of course. Either by knighting his heir himself or finding another knight to do so.

    Dorne and Landed Knights

    As Dornish law rules in Dorne, Sylva Santagar will upon inheriting Spotswood probably get a Dornish that we not know of yet, like Mistress of Spotswood or Dame of Spotswood.
  18. From ASoS, Tyrion III: Who do you think Tywin would have chosen as heir to Casterly Rock should he have come round to making arrangements concerning the matter of succession to the lordship of Casterly Rock?

    Davos Seaworth as Admiral of a war fleet

    Spoiler from The Winds of Winter:
  20. Indeed. In addition will Littlefinger want Tyrion dead for Tyrion will one day be coming for him because he framed Tyrion multiple times. A Lannister always pays his debts.

    Robb? Why Not a Fleet of Sellsails?

    When pilliaging the westerlands the northern army has amassed a lot of plunder, including gold from several goldmines. He could have used that loot to pay sellsails from the Free Cities to sail his army out of the riverlands to the North. Alternatively he also might have used that plunder to employ sellswords to drive the Ironborn out of the North. He truly is his father's son not the use the possibillities at your disposal. Yet another textbook example of Robb's ineptitude and Stark blight?

    Why hadn't Cersei tried to kill Tyrion before?

    Even if it looked like a alcohol poisoning Tywin or Jaime would still order an examination of Tyrion's body by a maester and given the knowledge that maesters have about poisons foul play would soon enough be established.
  23. Tywin Manderly

    Why hadn't Cersei tried to kill Tyrion before?

    It is a combination of various factors which prevented Cersei from killing Tyrion. Cersei thought she had forestalled the prophecy by killing Melara so killing Tyrion would not be necessary. In addition there is the taboo on kinslaying Also, in the event that Tyrion would get killed, Tywin and Jaime would not leave a single stone unturned in order to catch the killer and/ot the one ordering the killing. Jaime would do so out of love and Tywin for the honour of House Lannister.

    Robb? Why Not a Fleet of Sellsails?

    From ASoS, Catelyn III: Apparently Manderley's fleet (or any sufficient portion thereof) was not ready to sail south to pick Robb and his army up since he had to ask his aunt Lysa to provide him with ships at Gulltown.

    Appropriate Punishment for Catelyn

    Catelyn got a pass because Robb felt guity and semi-ashamed about marrying Jeyne Westerling. In addition was she clever enough to act submissively when being brought before Robb. It also helped that some time had passed between her releasing Jaime and Robb's arrival at Rivverun.
