    Fire and blood Volume...3???

    Martin's not very good at that sort of detail. I think we can all agree on that,

    Fire and blood Volume...3???

    Problematic depiction of the Dornish and Essosi? Don't see how the depiction is anything but accurate to the biases in world. Silencing and sidelining of women's voices is to be expected, given the in universe misogyny.

    The Marriage That Never Was

    For sure, it leaves one to wonder what might have been

    The Marriage That Never Was

    I agree with you there, it seems GRRM tried to write the material to suit earlier things written, and kinda missed a trick here. On one note, how do you know Boremund was still unwed by 80 A.C.?

    Worst Targaryen King

    Half of what Maaegor did, ensured Jaehaerys could come in and use the diplomatic weapons to bring peace.

    Baelon The Brave as King

    For sure, I do want to see how the loss of their mother so early affected both boys, and whether they'd have come out differently had Alyssa survived

    Baelon The Brave as King

    Interesting, I agree with you there about Vaegon and Viserra incidents. On Daemon, tbf, the lad was twenty when his father died, so perhaps his personality was already set by then?

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    I think GRRM ireally struggles with this sort of minutae, get him on food and he's fine, but stuff like this? He's not very good at it.

    Lords of Winterfell in Fire and Blood

    Alright intresting
  10. So, one thing that stuck out to me after reading Fire and Blood was the Starks. I am sure this has been mentioned before, but what do people think was the timeline for the various Stark lords leading into the dance? Torrhen, was obviously the first Lord of Winterfell post conquest, he had sons, and presumably they were grown men at the time of the conquest, if they were against bending the knee and spoke of rebelling. We don't know their names. The next Stark lord we get the name of is Brandon, who attends the Golden Wedding with his sons Walton and Alaric. Now is Brandon Torrhen's son or grandson or possibly even great grandson? Walton becomes Lord of Winterfell then dies, succeeded by Alaric, who is succeeded by his grandson Edric. After Edric, we then have Lord Ellard who was present at the great council, of 101. So, was Ellard Edric's son or grandson? After Ellard we have Benjen, who i'm thinking is Ellard's son? Then we have Rickon who is Benjen's son and then Cregan, who is Rickon's son. That's a lot of lords. What do you guys think, have I clocked the geneaology, or is there more to it do you think?

    Nymor's letter to Aegon

    Plothole, so GRRM could keep Dorne independent until Daeron's day

    The ramifications of killing Aegon the Younger

    Just a quick correction, Stephen was Henry I's nephew and Maud's cousin, not Henry's brother.

    Biggest surprises from Fire and Blood

    Which President, there are a fair few running around.

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    His killing off of women in childbirth is really annoying. Some of these characters have such potential, like Alyssa Targaryen

    [SPOILERS] Jaehaerys and Alysanne

    I've never understood why people like Tyrion, he's a whiny little twat. But on the topic, agreed, I wonder if Aemon had survived would he have fought harder for his daughter as his heir than anyone else did? Especially as Jaehaerys seemed to have fallen off the wagon after his death
