Lord Varys Posted October 11, 2017 Author Share Posted October 11, 2017 10 minutes ago, Ran said: I think it was Anne who decided to cut the Poxy Jeyne episode because it was colorful but a dead end, while men like Joffrey Doggett played a continuing role to the end of Maegor's reign. From that point of view it makes some sense but the fact that Moon and Doggett were relevant isn't actually evident in TWoIaF ;-). Poxy Jeyne could have been weird anecdote. Did George ever comment on the Quicksilver-Aegon conundrum and the dragons conundrum in general? Those things should be addressed and resolved in 'Fire and Blood' if possible. In fact, TSotD could work much better if more details - especially details about sources conflicting sources and chroniclers, etc. - where added to make fit better with the later pieces. Maegor must be the most controversial figure in Westeros, with Visenya not that far behind. The must be as much slander to be found about these two than there is about Rhaenyra, Aegon II, or Aegon IV. The last line seems to indicate George had the plan to have different maesters comment on the various kings when he was writing that. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
