998 Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 I think Ramsey and Roose Bolton may have been inspired by two Roman emperors, Severus and Antoninus. From Machiavelli's The Prince, "That We Must Avoid Being Despised and Hated" :"Whoever examines in detail the actions of Severus, will find him to have been a very ferocious lion and an extremely astute fox, and will find him to have been feared and respected by all and not hated by the army..."and "But Antoninus his son...his ferocity and cruelty were so great and unheard of...that he became hated by all the world and began to be feared by those about him..."
