Evamitchelle Posted February 7, 2012 Share Posted February 7, 2012 Why didn't Berena Hornwood (Leobald Tallhart's widow and Lord Hornwood's sister) have a claim to Hornwood when Lord Hornwood died? There's a huge fuss about no direct heirs, possibly raising Lord Hornwood's bastard to the title, giving Lady Hornwood's new husband the title, etc. But the late Lord Hornwood has a living sister who herself has two apparently healthy young sons. They're never mentioned in the succession talk, even though Berena should theoretically be next in line to inherit and/or would have the ability to name one of her sons to the title.They were mentioned in fact, if only in passing : "The Tallharts, Flints and Karstarks all have ties to House Hornwood through the female line". The wiki also mentions that Leobald Tallhart suggested his younger son as Lady Hornwood's heir but I can't find a direct quote. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
