Hm... interesting. Do we know when Stannis left the Small Council?

Right after Jon Arryn died he returned to dragonstone, so he was not in Kings landing while Robert was in Winterfell.

With Jon Arryn dead, who was in charge in King's Landing when Robert was at Winterfell in AGoT?

I would assume, it was whoever was left on the Small Council. So, Barristan Selmy, Pycelle, Petyr Baelish, Varys and Renly Baratheon.

Of those I'd imagine either Baelish, Varys, or Pycelle since Renly and Barristan went up to the Inn at the Crossroads to meet the King's royal party.

If it was Littlefinger, it means that he achieved his ultimate goal of becoming the most powerful person in the realm... for a few weeks.

Now that is incredible to think about. The three ultimate schemers, except Pycelle I guess haha, in charge of King's Landing.

Who was most likely better at swordplay and fighting in general: Aegon the Conqueror or Visenya? Or were they super evenly matched? And what was the ranking between Visenya, Aegon, Orys and Rhaenys? Like when they were practicing with their master-at-arms (Quentyn Qoherys, by the way), who would beat who?

how do jousting tourneys exactly work? I've been reading some Tourney of the Harrenhal theories. according to some theories Rhaegar enters the tourney after the knight of the laughing tree incident . but , is that possible ? can he enter the tourney right at the last rounds?

It was not the kind of lists/bracket system we have seen elsewhere.

The tourney was a 'champions tourney.' At the beginning there were five knights, the champions (5 Whents). Knights could challenge one of the 5 and then take their spot. Then at some point it was either halted and each of the 5 left had to challenge each other to determine the final champ... or there were fewer than 5 champions (because of the Knight of the Laughing Tree ousting a few of them then leaving).

Did Arya and Sansa share a bedroom at Winterfell, or did they have their own rooms?

I'm pretty sure they had separate rooms.  Arya mentions being in her room a couple of times, and there was no indication she shared it.  I think Jon gave her Needle in her room, impossible if shared with Sansa.

In that case I wonder how The Mountain got in position to joust Ser Hugh.

The same way it happened in The Mystery Knight, someone influenced/bribed the person choosing the match ups.

There's a depiction of him in F&B, as I recall, though I do not know how much direction was received from George. He looks to be in his 70s or 80s by the look of it to me.

Per Doug Wheatley:

Quote

George told me in his notes that he had no description of Gyldayn except that he was old, precise, persnickety and opinionated. He also said that he did not want Gyldayn to look like him. The funny thing about these notes, I misread them the first time. I thought I read that George wanted Gyldayn to look like him, I got so excited about drawing George’s portrait I was jumping around my studio whooping and hollering. After I calmed down and read the directions again, I was like….oh, he shouldn’t look like George….right, of course. Lol!
