LOL!!! I never made any argument as such about any of this. Just simply pointed out that your assertion concerning contemporary monarchies is empirically and manifestly wrong - as has been demonstrated by plenty of research I'm familiar through not only my own review of the literature but friends and colleagues that are experts in that particular field. Anyway, if you want to continue this discussion feel free to PM me. This derail should stop. 5 minutes ago, butterweedstrover said: But like I said before, if Rhaenyra were to have open sexual relationships, especially with a threat looming about her throne, she’d either be incredibly stupid or incredibly tyrannical. And like I said before, there's no reason to think she'd ever do this based on the text. She's never had "open sexual relationship," and your assumption that she has is, again, just adopting Cole's slut-shaming propaganda and posing it as a legitimate argument, when it's not. 9 minutes ago, butterweedstrover said: In fact I don’t feel the need to assume intentions into characters given none. You are literally assuming Rhaenyra would be a bad ruler due to behavior she has never demonstrated. That's what this entire discussion is about, and it's the apex of hypocrisy. 10 minutes ago, butterweedstrover said: Again, dispensing with critique using dragon fire is tyrannical. Who said anything about dragon fire? Did Jaehaerys employ dragon fire to ensure his marriage to Alysanne was accepted? No? Then stop bringing up irrelevant shit that's willfully misunderstanding my argument and the text.
