    Renly winning would have been a disaster.

    Gay men have children in sham marriages all the time.

    Renly winning would have been a disaster.

    Whenever this argument comes up it's like the lords of Westeros didn't realise they could usurp their overlords with sufficient power and support, of course they know and anyone that rose in rebellion against Renly would use that against him just as any lord would use any advantage they could but they'd still only do it if they have sufficient strength and backing in the first place, the same as any rebellion. Renly's the king's brother, with enough of a blood claim and the backing of Highgarden and the Stormlands he has more than enough strength to make his legitimacy an accepted reality, evil counsellors, bastards, whatever excuse he wants. It's like the assumption here is that a rebellious lord with massive backing against his overlord would simply not rebel because of lack of precedent. If he has the support he'll just do it anyway, the support is what ultimately matters.
  3. He's the former Hand of the King, lurking about King's Landing whilst John Arryn's holds that office would be embarrassing. Not to mention he has his affairs in the West to manage.

    Why do you all love Sansa Stark?

    This is offensive to Oingo Boingo.

    Would Runestone be in danger if Yohn marched with Robb?

    I don't think she'd want to further aggravate the situation with open civil war in the Vale with her strongest vassals, she's much too fearful for that.

    Who do you think is Mance’s father?

    Some man, no doubt. Most of them are.

    Why didn't Littlefinger try the Bronn approach in dueling?

    If anyone ever pulls a knife on you in the street just dodge all their attacks and you'll be okay.

    How to Improve the North Economically?

    I'm not sure mounting a naval invasion of the Iron Islands with the intention of acquiring some specific swords is a wise investment plan.
  9. I think it's safe to assume Aerys has had children killed, he had the Darklyns and Hollards put do death (minus Dontos). Even beyond that I doubt he has a clean record for killing children.
  10. I assume he just thought Robb would keep his word, it's not that crazy of an idea.

    Wealth and revenues of Westeros

    Honestly the value of money is so inconsistent that I wouldn't even bother getting into it. Anguy managed to blow 10,000 dragons on prostitutes and wine.

    Why Renly didn't tell Ned that Stannis doesn't want the throne

    Thinking about it I think the OP might be getting the show and books crossed over anyway, a lot of people remember the Renly/Ned conversation as Renly going after the throne which didn't happen in the books, Stannis or the line of succession didn't even come up and Ned would have rejected Renly regardless.

    Why Renly didn't tell Ned that Stannis doesn't want the throne

    I don't see how this would change what happened, Ned didn't want to seize the children in the night and Renly wasn't prepared to wait for Cersei to strike, Ned would still refuse him and Renly would still take his men and leave. Also Stannis and the throne isn't even on Renly's radar, Renly fully expects Joffrey to inherit as he intended to enforce Ned's regency.

    Janos Slynt

    He's not a blue blood so no one that matters cares, if anything the nobility at large would probably applaud Tyrion stripping lands away from some pleb.
  15. I don't think he has the authority to pack a noble from the Vale off to the Wall.
