Stannis's insult toward Gilly.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what chapter Stannis insults Gilly to Jon's face. 'Cause I didn't highlight it on my kindle app. :-(

Hey @manchester_babe, it's a few months late but here is the quote...

Quote

A Dance with Dragons - Jon I

"Wife and daughter both, Your Grace. Craster married all his daughters. Gilly's boy was the fruit of their union."
"Her own father got this child on her?" Stannis sounded shocked. "We are well rid of her, then. I will not suffer such abominations here. This is not King's Landing."
"I can find another wet nurse. If there's none amongst the wildlings, I will send to the mountain clans. Until such time, goat's milk should suffice for the boy, if it please Your Grace."

I mean, it's not complimentary to Gilly, but it's an insult to her baby, not Gilly herself.

Well considering that she is probably a result of incest as well, I think she would probably be included as an "abomination" according to Stannis, as well.

I agree, but I don't know that he made that association, I agree he would have included her, but I don't think he did, merely through lack of information.

Didn't he also refer to her as a whore?

 

(unfortunately it's not uncommon for some men to look down on a female for having sex whether it was voluntary or not)

He might think she's done an abomination, though... not very flattering either.

Well, like I said, I think he would consider her to be at fault, but his focus was on the child. I think Mel is the only woman who sits in his mind, the rest can go f themselves. I like Stannis, but he's not a great gentleman.
