Lion of the West Posted December 29, 2015 Share Posted December 29, 2015 I really don't see how Selyse would have been a slight to Stannis and many, in fact most, royal personage from previous Targaryen House did not marry partners from the Great Houses when they married outside their family. Just look at the Targaryen family tree and you'll see plenty of marriages to Houses down the feudal pyramid. I mean, Viserys II was also the brother of a king and he married a banking family's daughter...they're not even nobility! So with the Florents, in term of the House's prestige and power, Stannis had an perfectly suitable match for his station. I will happily confess that I think that Stannis whines in regards to this, and I personally blame him a great deal for the faulty state of their relation and as well as think that he has a share in Selyse's special mindset.
