  1. Not take a betrothed woman but a free as a second wife. If Lyanna was the only choice in his mind, then the betrothal with Robert should be broken and then take Lyanna. Then, when Rickard and Brandon went to Kings Landing he should at least sent a raven to give them explanations. And after that when Aerys askes for Ned and Roberts heads, Rhaegar should try to depose Aerys instead of supporting him.
  2. I believe the battle of Meereen will be in two parts. Part 1: Windblown and Second Sons switch sides. Dany's army and Ironborn crush the Yunkish separately. Dragons attack everyone on their own. Victarion will have the dragonhorn blown and ride Rhaegal. In the meantime the Sons of the Harpy revolt and Skahaz goes on rampage. Children hostages and Hizdar are executed. End of battle. All the sides enter Meereen but can't coordinate. Probable conflict between Barristan and Victarion. Tyrion starts reading the books Jorah gave to Daenerys and starts feeding Viserion. He goes the Nettles way and Viserion accepts him as a rider. While things are starting to get hot in Dany's camp, Volantene arrive. Part 2: Dragons and slaves make the difference. Volantene slaves revolt and change sides and dragons burn the Volantene. I believe this is the time for Barristan's death.
  3. F&B vol 2 is not out yet to know the exact power of the seat of Summerhal or the connection with house Baratheon. From what we know it was a minor summer castle and royal residence not a great castle like the Red Keep. Problably the lord of Summerhal could not raise a great army. So i guess Robert having a brother who is lord of Storms End is better. About Stannis lordship of Dragonstone, we see that it not that much great anymore. Dragonstone has no dragons anymore and the Targaryen fleet (mostly Velaryon fleet) was destroyed in the storm during Daenerys's birth. But still Baratheon kings have more powerful kin than post dragon Targaryen kings.
  4. I believe that Aegon's refusal to be reconciled is what sealed his fate. If he had offered peaceful terms to the blacks and especially please Corlys, he had better chance to keep his throne. A unification of the two sides with a Jaehaera - Aegon/Alyn/ a black lord(if Aegon was executed) wedding was a great idea.
  5. With Stannis win, a Lannister from another line than Twyin would follow. With Aegon's win a Golden Company man with a Lannister wife. Tyrion now is to go with Daenerys so he gets his castle of she wins.
  6. I get that Robert thinks he failed to save Lyanna from her "raper". And I get some jealousy about Rhaegar. Is it only for him having Lyanna even after death? Is it because he was generally jealous of Rhaegar? That is left open for now
  7. I characterise Ned and Wyman as good fathers. The other are average. And Twyin, Robert and Aerys are bad for me
  8. If they acted like the elephants in Volantis, they could claim Tyrosh or Pentos but Blackfyres prefered war.
  9. The choices for Viserys not to be a threat are: 1. Execution 2. Join the Faith 3. Join the Nights Watch 4. Join the Citadel I believe 2,3,4 are the best.
  10. 1. Ned 2. Hoster 3. Wyman 4. Walder 5. Viserys II 6. Roose 7. Aerys II 8. Robert 9. Twyin
  11. This can also be done in Valyria in a greater scale and explain the twisted life of Valyria after the Doom.
  12. This is a version of the story I believe. The Doom was not only a cataclysm but something like a nuclear explosion and the remnants of life that continues to live in Valyria are twisted (people, dragons, etc). Aerea can have eaten/drunk something that had twisted fireworm eggs upon it. Balerion may have been attacked by a twisted dragon. And Euron visited a valyrian colony ruin like Gogosos not Valyria.
  13. IMO Rhaenyra and her team could not foresee the attack of the Three Daughters. But sending them to the North and the Vale was a good idea too. I believe her most stupid decision is arresting Corlys Velaryon. She lost a great deal of army and fleet and since she had not found the royal gold she had no money. Second most stupid decision is losing the people of Kings Landing. It cost her dragons and one son.
  14. Bran whose dreams were broken with his legs. Brienne who has a good heart but is mistreated bue to her appearance and not acting like a "normal" woman
  15. Prior the death of the dragons claiming a dragon was a clear sign of being a Targaryen. Rhaenyra used this to support the legitimacy of her sons despite them no looking Targaryen at all. Alysanne Targaryen and her daughter Alyssa did not look much Targaryen. Baelor Breakspear, his son Valarr would probably be accepted despite having darker colours. Probably all this happens because GRRM kept the noble lines looking the same for thousands of years.
  16. By the time of the Conquest, Targaryens had acted like Westeroshi lords in many things: abolishing slavery, first night, faith of the Seven, son inheritance. After all Aegon inherited the lordship of Dragonstone, not his elder sister Visenya. Even though I have to admit early Targaryen queens were very active in ruling, especially Visenya and Rhaenys. Still a king not producing heirs is a problem. Same for a queen ruling Westeros. She would become a Maegor, burning and killing people who dont accept her right to rule. Also, FAB records Aegon's feelings for his wifes, not their feelings for him or their feelings for each other. Could be a case that Visenya felt always neglected by Aegon and so became more stern or that she was worried that Aegon would cast her aside for her inability to birth children or that she knew that Rhaenys was having lovers but kept this a secret to ensure their legacy
  17. A Hightower is the best choice. A powerfull house of the Reach, which makes a good threat to house Tyrell. Good choices are: 1. Cersei, if they abandoned the idea of marrying her to Robert. 2. Arianne, if they wanted to show that Targaryen loyalists are welcome to the new regime.
  18. Yet 4 dragonseeds managed to claim dragons. In a same period when the future Viserys II failed to hatch his egg. By 300 all with dragonblood are the same considering the contact with dragons.
  19. It is unclear if they expected Aegon to become a dragonrider. They never mention it. But uniting the claims and getting married probably means sharing everything they have. Lets see the dragonseeds in Dance. Ulf, Hugh and especially Nettles have unclear parentage and relation to Targaryens, yet they manage to claim dragons while Alyn fails despite having more certain Targaryen heritage. So Aegon has more chances to claim Rhaegal or Viserion.
  20. When I first read World of Ice and Fire I had these questions: 1. How could the North not base on fishing and fish trading? If Braavos and Ibben could why not the North? Make ports in western coasts (Deepwood Motte, Bear Islands, Sea Dragon point) and conquer the northwestern seas. Same for east. White Harbour and Karhold can become fishing ports and trading posts. They could even enter oil trade like Ibben. 2. The North has many forests but no wood trade unlike Qohor. How can this happen? Ned was a good lord of the North but he didnt gain much by his best friend becoming king. I believe he could become a second Hoster Tully and marry his children to the same bloc that supported Robert. He gets a Robb - Myrcella wedding (he is the kings best friend), Sansa - Edmure (uncle - niece wedding is ok in Westeros) so the fertile Riverlands help the North in food shortages and Arya - Robert Arryn which can also provide food for the North.
  21. Calling a Great Council at that moment would cause only harm to Robert's claim. Targaryen loyalists would easily rally against him and this could include Stormlanders, Riverlanders and Vale lords. The brutal deaths of Elia and her children would be brought to the council and would work against him. So using only his right of conquest was a good move.
  22. Add to this that many Crownland houses who trade much with Free Cities due to proximity can intermarry with Valyrian houses of these places. I will not be surprised if Daenaera had a Lyseni grandmother or great-grandmother
  23. It is strange Aemma Arryn did not claim a dragon or Viserys I did not claim a new dragon. Vermithor and Silverwing were good choices.
  24. A Velaryon or a Celtigar lady can marry into house Harte later on, so they can have some more Valyrian blood.
  25. There are points still unclear: 1. When Targaryens arrived at Dragonstone they had slaves. When Aegon I was Lord of Dragonstone he seemingly had no slaves so probably they abolished slavery during the Century of Blood. 2. Why Gaemon was called glorious? He had some major wins against the Free Cities? He had some success in Westeros which strengthened Targaryen rule in the Gullet? Or both. Interesting that his daughter married a Westeroshi lord. 3. 4 dragons died during the century of blood and there was a succesion of Targaryen brothers as Lords of Dragonstone. Possible Targaryen power struggle during which Targaryen and dragon blood was spilled? 5. Storm Kings were ok with Targaryens establishing their rule in the Gullet and houses sworn to Storms End affiliating themselves more to Dragonstone, like house Bar Emmon? 6. What was their plan during the Century of Blood? Hatch more dragons to claim the East? None at all?
