    Would you prefer if Rhaegar won?

    Considering what Robert Baratheon's reign did to the realm, and the turmoil his union with the Lannisters has brought on the realm, I think it's pretty safe to say that Rhaegar would have been a better king. From all accounts he was a great man and likely would have been a great ruler, and it did seem that he was ready to depose his father had the Targaryen side emerged victorious. Those quick to say that he kidnapped a woman and started the war could be correct, but to assume we know things that we don't is a dangerous premise. I think it more likely that Lyanna went willingly, and it remains to be seen if Rhaegar's actions plunging the kingdoms into war was not worth it. If his interpretation of prophecy turns out to be correct enough (ala Jon Snow is his son and The Prince That Was Promised) then his causing a war is dwarfed by what he accomplished for mankind in importance. I don't think it's right to condemn Rhaegar for his actions until we know more about the past and the future. For all we know, he may have saved all of humanity. I'm not saying that he did, but I do advise patience before judgement. Keep in mind that The Others are the big picture, and this squabbling over the throne holds very little weight in comparison.
