HOTDfresher Posted September 26, 2022 Share Posted September 26, 2022 1 minute ago, Winterfell is Burning said: Her having 3 child who are clearly bastards also undermines her own ascension, because it opens a new avenue to be exploited against her (people can go to war claiming they don't bastards in the Iron Throne when she dies, or they don't want an adulteress as Queen- and of course, they would use much more offensive words than that ). If she couldn't have kids with Laenor, she'd better off not having kids at all. In fact, would make a war much less likely, since Aegon would be her heir anyway (and in the show, the age difference between them might as well be mother and child). That is what she should have done. But alas she might have wanted to have her 1st kid to not give the opposition any fuel to disinherit her due to being barren. I don't think she could have predicted that the child wouldn't be born with signature Targaryen features. And that is where she should have stopped having kids with Harwin. But when has anyone in this show done anything that they should have done. From the Targaryens to the Hightowers to Cole to Larys Strong, everyone just does things a few steps further than required.
