MtnLion Posted December 16, 2014 Share Posted December 16, 2014 And I'm not questioning the loyalty, at all. I'm saying that being loyal to a person =/= from always following that person's orders over that of another. As in, being loyal to Aerys doesn't exclude following Rhaegar's orders. To me, Gerold Hightower expressing loyalty toward Aerys actually proves little, because being loyal to the King and being loyal to the Crown Prince are not mutually exclusive. Even, when they stand in apparent conflict with each other. You do realize that we are talking about the by the book White Bull, don't you? He says that there is no reason to question his loyalty to Aerys. The Kingsguard follow the King's orders. Did Aerys tell Hightower to follow Rhaegar's orders? I don't think so, but it is a possibility. It is very likely with Whent and Dayne, since they are Rhaegar's sworn shields. But, the White Bull does not say I am following orders, he explains, "We (Kingsguard) swore a vow." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
