Nolan Clegane Posted May 6, 2015 Share Posted May 6, 2015 Dany's motives to take back the throne was1) She grew up hearing her brother say how her family was wrongfully deposed with the murders of her kin.She wants revenge for them.2) Everything the usurper has now is what should be hers by right. She was not only denied the throne but also her ancestral home.She was forced to flee for life and never had a permanent home.They have to lose all they had and they have to beg and rely on others for a living. She saw her own brother descend into madness.For her the IT represent "home" and all that she had lost.3) She was the last member of a proud,powerful family which ruled their kingdom for 300 years.So obviously she would be entitled.4) She knew that she survived so far was because of her family name.If her family name fades away her life would be even more miserable.So she wants to make her family name live on.5) The usurper sent assassins to kill her while she was pregnant which fueled her hatred for the usurper. 6) She is compassionate and she wants to make the people of her homeland happy.7) She has dragons and a powerful army and she has the might.Now honestly compare it with Robert's motives when he took the throne.1) While her family was brutally murdered, her brother is not a reliable source. She should know this.2) What right did Aegon I have to conquer Westeros? Because of the doom? Because he wanted to? Because he had dragons? Because he had Silver/blonde hair and thought he was better than everyone?3) Again, with the entitlement... Ugh, she's entitled to nothing4) I get this one. Sense of survival.Kind of blends with #3 but ok5) Her ancestors were usurpers to not just one kingdom but 76) This is your worst argument. She wants to make the people of her homeland happy? She knows NOTHING of the people of her supposed homeland. Plus, she has never even lived in Westeros. 7) Finally, you lay it on the line... Dragons, might, power.... However, just because the bully in elementary school is stronger than you doesn't mean he should take your lunch money. Also, Robert and co. we're deposing the mad king, who wanted to burn down the city! Yeah, Robert let things get personal, but it's still not a good comparison.
