Buried Treasure Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 Rhaella would come after Dany as she was Aerys' sister.If Aerys had had a younger brother he would have come after Dany and before Rhaella; under Targ succession after Viserys.My issue against Robert inheriting before Rhaenys isn't so much about male claimants through the female line as about the stability of the realm. One of the 7 great lords in the kingdom inheriting the throne would radically alter the power dynamic and destabilise the realm. That is to be avoided and a Targaryen - even a daughter, would be preferable. If the inheritence came down to a choice between Rhaenys or Robert wouldn't the Houses most loyal to the Targs (the Martells, Daynes, Darrys...) favour the Targ for the throne - even if it means somewhat relaxing the rule on patrimony?
