Borros Baratheon's daughters were all young women in their late teens. Joffrey, Aegon and Viserys - at that point - were all under the age of 12. Maybe you could've squeezed an arrangement between Joffrey and the youngest Baratheon girl. But the boys were far too young to be considered good matches for nubile maidens such as them. Don't forget the childbearing clock; it was a lot more imperative that the childbearing clock be abided by back in those days. A woman of 40 giving birth is in terrible danger compared to another woman who is giving birth at age 24.

They did something similar with Daemon, make him a monster but hope people saw the fun loving side to him. But for some reason people ignore Daemon's bad stuff but they can't do the same for Aegon. Why is that? Because our culture (or at least, American culture) pathologically despises any form of sexual perversion, especially when it comes to rapists.

I mean yeah, he is still awful for doing it, but it is awfulness framed like a big joke, especially when seeing his swagger on return to the red keep and the nonchalant way he dismisses the accusation. Exactly It's yet another reason why there should've been an episode placed in between "We Light the Way" and "The Princess and the Queen." We needed an episode dedicated to the Royce family accusing Daemon of murdering his wife...who actually was one of the more powerful women in the realm. It is a big deal.
