Would Renly have killed Shireen?

Recommended Posts

Does everyone in the story have to be a psychopath who would murder, or imprison, their own niece? I'd like to think that there was at least one guy who would rather lose his crown than do something like that.

No. Which is why I do not subscribe to the theory. There is also not much to support that the Tyrells would slaughter for the sake of it. I believe that is primarily based upon their recent history of scheming to make Margarey Queen (first Tyrell Queen) and Olenna’s alleged involvement with the Purple Wedding.

Why would he? He just needs to kill Selyse and take her by his side. Shireen is a child, she can’t do much unless she has help, it’s literally the same scenario of Sansa after Ned dies.
