Jon's Queen Consort Posted June 27, 2016 Share Posted June 27, 2016 6 minutes ago, jrod said: Robert's claim to the throne was just amongst the Vale/North/Stormlands. He had Targ blood, so of the 3 houses rising in rebellion he had the best "claim", which was probably little more than to placate some people who thought someone with royal blood should rule. It had absolutely nothing to do with true succession of the throne. He won it by conquest, not legal inheritance. True. As LF said; Quote A pretty dress for an ugly truth: it was war and he could swing a hammer harder than the other options. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
