Mithras Posted April 17, 2015 Share Posted April 17, 2015 Penrose and Dondarrion Garmund Hightower married Rhaena Targaryen and they had six unaccounted daughters. From these daughters, there seems a fairly good chance that some great or minor Lords acquired Targaryen blood through legitimate way in the female line. We know that Aelinor Penrose was a cousin of Aerys I and it is possible that House Penrose has one of these daughters as their ancestor. Another likely possibility is the Dondarrions. Daeron II wed his son and heir Baelor to Jena Dondarrion. That means there is a fairly good chance that Jena had Targaryen ancestry too, possibly from those daughters of Rhaena. In short, there is a fairly good chance that Beric had a drop of dragon blood. Lothston Lady Falena Stokeworth was Aegon’s first mistress. In 149 AC, she took the virginity of the fourteen-year-old prince. Their affair continued, until a Kingsguard knight found them together in bed in 151 AC. Prince Viserys then decided to mary Falena off to his master-at-arms, Lord Lucas Lothston, and convinced King Baelor I to name Lothston as the new Lord of Harrenhal, thereby removing Falena from court. Prince Aegon, however, continued to frequently visit Harrenhal for two more years, and it has been suggested that even after that, his visits to Falena continued. While Aegon did not acknowledge any of Falena’s offspring as his own, it is rumored that at least one of Falena’s children, daughter Jeyne Lothston (Aegon’s eight mistress), was Aegon’s daughter. There is a fairly good chance that Aegon IV fathered more children from Falena and passed them as Lothstons. After all, we are 99.9 % sure that Aegon IV was the biological father of Viserys Plumm. So, the wretch seemed to make a habit of it. According to Ser Illifer, there was a Lord Lucas Lothston whose nickname was the Pander and he had a son called Manfryd o’ the Black Hood. It is not known whether this Lucas was the husband of Falena or this Manfryd was the Manfred Lothston who took part in the first Blackfyre Rebellion among the black dragon ranks but in the end betrayed Daemon. But it makes sense to take the Pander as the husband of Falena. After all, this Lucas the Pander seemed to be pimping his wife and his daughter (who was actually Aegon IV’s own daughter) to the king. Timeline also allows his son Manfred to be the Manfryd o’ the Black Hood. Therefore, the Lothstons up to and including Mad Danelle Lothston most probably had illegitimate Targaryen blood from Aegon IV himself. Whent The Lothstons were extinguished during Maekar’s reign (221-233) and the Whents received Harrenhal for their role in defeating the Lothstons. Since they kept the coat-of-arms of the Lothstons almost intact, it can be argued that the first Lord Whent (or his son) married a surviving Lothston female (or a close kin to the Lothstons) as it is the usual way of replacing an old House. After all, the Whents were knights in service to the Lothstons and we know that several household knights married a female of the House they served and started their own dynasty there. Minisa Whent seems to be a daughter born from this Whent-Lothston union as she was old enough to be a wife to Hoster. Tully? If this theory is true, then Minisa’s children have a drop of dragon blood going back to Aegon IV through the bastard line. This also means that the Stark kids have dragon blood through Cat and Sweetrobin has dragon blood through Lysa. How can we confirm all this stuff at this point of the story? Garmund’s daughters or other legitimate Targaryen marriages unaccounted for should be in the history books and can be explained when the plot demands it. It is highly likely that we will hear a bit more about Viserys “Plumm” in TWoW. Bloodraven is in a perfect position to explain the illegitimate Targaryen blood in the Lothstons and the Whents, if this part of the theory is true. How can it contribute to the plot? Viserys “Plumm” already contributed to the plot and will keep doing it for a while longer. On this basis, one can argue that Ben Plumm can qualify as a dragonrider (though it takes more than a drop of dragon blood or two to tame a dragon as Quentyn can tell). Or if the descendants of Viserys Plumm married into the Lannisters, Tyrion might consider himself eligible to claim a dragon. These possible drops of dragon blood might suggest new ideas about UnBeric and UnCat. And even before that, this theory might suggest new ideas about the strange phenomena that all the Stark kids have the gift. If they had two of the most magical bloodlines (Stark and Targaryen) in both sides, the chances of having the gift might be higher. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
