  1. Exactly what I was talking about. Catherine the Great's husband was Peter III, Pavel was her son, and Saltykov was her lover. Hence the story about Alexander III and his dilemma.
  2. LOL, you know this anecdote, right? When Alexander III of Russia was told there is a possibility that Emperor Pavel was not Peter's but Saltykov's son, he crossed himself and said: "Blessed be God, we are Russian!". Next time historians told him it was a mistake and Pavel was indeed Peter's son. Alexander crossed himself again: "Blessed be God, we are legitimate"

    Polygamy in the Faith of the Seven

    Of course polygamy is a sin in Faith of Seven. Remember the rite? "I do solemnly proclaim N and M to be man and wife, one flesh, one heart, one soul, now and forever, and cursed be the one who comes between them" This formula gives no back door for second wife - every second wife will be cursed by gods.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Do we have any, any information why Daeron the Dragon was never married or if he ever was betrothed?

    What if Renly was born a girl?

    Yep, that was my theory as well. Aerys commanded Steffon to father a daughter hence an age difference between Stannis and Renly, and when Steffon and Cassana "failed him", he sent them to Essos to redeem themselves. (yep, just a theory but I like it) Anyway, would it really change a thing? Would Rhaegar run away with Lyanna anyway? If he was so "lovestruck" to run away from his wife and kids, he wouldn't give two shits about a little child-bride. More than that, I imagine he wouldn't hide with Lyanna at all, he would marry her at instant, like Little Duncan did, and Steffon would blow a gasket, like Lionel did. Especially if Lyanna was Robert's fiancee.
  6. Yeah, sorry, I totally forgot about Daeron the Drunk :facepalm:
  7. So, ok, about Daenora. She was really young (was born after 211and before 216), she was daughter of meek, mad and sickly Rhaegel - I suppose they decided to repeat Jaehaera Targaryen's story - Jaehaera was passed though she was her father heir, but married to the next king. In Daenora's case they decided to pass her, but betrothed her to Maekar's heir. Aerion's madness was not well known during this period, and he gained a reputation of war hero during Third Blackfyre Rebellion, so he was considered a sound future king. That's why Aerion didn't marry till his late thirtys - he waited for his child-bride to grow up.
  8. Yep, probably. It was just a speculation - we wanted to create detailed line of succession, like what British Monarchy has. We were butting heads if it would be Aerys-Rhaegar-Aegon-Rhaenys-Viserys-Daenerys-Robert-Rhaelle's line-Daenerys of Dorn's line or would it be Aeyrs-Rhaegar-Aegon-Viserys-Rhaenys-Daenerys-Robert, or would it be Aerys-Rhaegar-Aegon-Viserys-Robert(etc). Some people said it had to be Aerys-Rhaegar-Aegon-Blackfyres-Bittersteels-etc - as Baratheons and Martells are from female lines hence they have to be excluded from line of succession as well. Anyway, all of this is just pointless, as these words, which we used as basis for the discussion (To prevent any more situations like that in the future, it became law—or at least custom—that from there on out, a Targaryen woman could never inherit the throne) are simply not true (anymore?) http://www.tor.com/blogs/2011/05/the-cycle-of-inheritance-in-a-song-of-ice-and-fire.
  9. Wow. Mindblowing. Seriously. For so many years we (well, some of us) believed women were excluded from succession list altogether (I remember speculating myself if Robert would be next in line to the throne after Rhaegar, Viserys and Aegon because Rhaenys and Daenerys would be removed)

    Genghis Khan was inserted into Khal Drogo

    Would Jebe be inserted into one of Drogo's riders as well?
  11. Did he really? I am all ears!
  12. One more inaccuracy here: As far as I remember it was said dornishmen never gave Rhaenys's body back. Did they do it eventually or it's another mistake?
  13. She is still Rhalla in Wiki: http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Rhalla_Targaryen
  14. What about Rhaella and Aethan? Are they right?
