Lord Varys Posted May 12, 2022 Share Posted May 12, 2022 1 hour ago, Corvinus85 said: He may have gotten corrupted by his wealth-induced power. After all, he eagerly helped Daemon carve out his Stepstones kingdom because the tolls the Triarchy was imposing on shipping was affecting his bottom line. And it seems that from when Rhaenys was denied her inheritance at the Great Council of 101 he became more deeply involved in politics. True enough. But him actually doing his best to make his wife queen - as he likely thought she would be one day when they married - and to ensure that his children got what he thought was their right isn't exactly the same thing as risking everything he has for Rhaenyra - who only his daughter-in-law. Corlys didn't go to war for Rhaenys nor for Laenor, after all. Rhaenyra's case was certainly different, but the risk to lose the war wasn't larger in 129 AC than it was in 103 AC. After all, back then Corlys and Rhaenys were younger and the Velaryons controlled more and larger dragons than Viserys' faction. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
