KalibakCruel Posted April 14, 2014 Share Posted April 14, 2014 The Baratheons won it through conquest, which legally makes it theirs. It's a law that's been passed on since Aegon invaded. Joffrey (unknowingly) took it through trickery and deceit through his mother. There is a huge difference. Not knowing makes it different? Knowingly or not, Joffrey took the throne. Since that war was won by Joffrey, it's his line that's legal now. Robert unseated the king, Joff made it so the king never even sat the chair. I'd say Joff's line is the legal line now. Moreover, what does it all matter? Robert's line is the legal line because he managed to usurp the old king? So before he officially sat the throne we should have all sided with the Mad King since legally Robert couldn't rebel? But once he DID sit the throne we side with HIS line? Well now we should side with Joff's line since HE sits the throne, usurping Stannis' line, knowingly or not. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
