Corvo the Crow Posted March 2 Share Posted March 2 (edited) Freys are a house of around six centuries and are seen as young upstarts and are looked down upon, while Targaryens, the house of sister loving worms if you have trouble remembering them among so many houses of importance, are quite revered. One may argue that it is the result of less than three hundred years of turbulent misrule, one that has been full of civil wars, over Westeros, a misrule that did not even extend to two centuries in some places, but it has nothing to do with it as it was the case even before their violent war of unjust conquest. Freys are looked down upon even by the Tullies, whose own family, though going back to the time of Andal invasions, were until the conquest little more than lesser lords who were granted a small portion of land by the invading Andals of house Vance for bending their knees. Targaryens, on the other hand, were even offered the hand of the only daughter and heir of a house as old and presigious as the Durrandons despite only being "in" Westeros for about a hundred years, living on the very fringes of Westeros on a small island. It was only after that Aegon proposed the hand of his bastard brother, that Argilac the Arrogant had taken offense, he was fine with marrying his daughter and therefore his dynasty and leaving the entire kingdom, to some lordling that living on a barren rock off the coast that had absolutely no effect in Westerosi politics. Why? P.S. Walder Frey is a filthy scumbag but it's not much relevant to the topic. Edited March 2 by Corvo the Crow Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
