KingHodorTargaryen Posted August 1, 2013 Share Posted August 1, 2013 We all know Martin is fond of twists and turns and drastic changes in fortune, the facts as they stand don't make this outcome seem likely (and as I've mentioned it's not my personal desire to see Stannis as king I'm personally team Dany!) but it's reasonable to use foreshadowing from hprophecies within the book and from historical events that Martin has likely drawn inspiration from. All of Dany's prophecies and those surrounding her suggest she will be a great figure and she has gone a long way into proving this true however none of those prophecies place her on the iron throne. The clever thing about the red wedding was it destroyed the obvious hero of the story and the reader is then, as many characters in the book are, lost and left with nought but prophecy and Dany to turn to for hope, Martin has cleverly set us up for his bittersweet ending. Dany will be great but she will not sit the throne, through visions she has already seen the king but didn't dwell on the image enough to take any significance from it!The prophecy was A king. Doesn't have to be the king of the Iron Throne. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
