sb.69 Posted June 8, 2015 Share Posted June 8, 2015 I feel that some of you do not get Stannis. He knows joffrey and his siblings are bastards,hence not the heirs to the throne. So by rights the kingship goes to Stannis. He is just doing as the laws suggest he should do. Renly had no right to declare for the crown since he was the younger brother. What I'm trying to get across is that Stannis is doing his duty, not that he just wants to be King. So no like you said that is not just who Stannis is... just killing family members because he selfishly wants to be king.I highly doubt Stannis gives the order or just let's it happen. Like multiple people have said Stannis and Shireen are leagues apart. It makes more sense that Mel and Selyse take matters into their own hands. It had also been pointed out that Stannis explicitly states to appoint Shireen as queen should he die.Even if Stannis is involved at least Grrm will give a better reason than the show gave. And what I gather is that D&D just knew that she got burned. This is why Viserys and Dany think why they have the right to the throne, by law, by birth right. I don't think Stannis is doing this because it's his duty. After getting treated/cheated by Robert/Renly, during/after the rebellion, he's just bitter. I think, in the book, he doesn't stop them from doing so to say the least. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
