If all the Martells die but a married Mrycella Baratheon lives, is she the ruler of Dorne? Wait, actually is she going to become Mrycella Martell?
I don't think so,Blood right doesn't pass through marriage.
So it should go to a cousin of the Martells or something,that is unless she has a kid.
It would depend on many, many things. If her family were to win and keep the throne, and she was grown, with a Martell child, then yes, she run Dorne until it grew up. As a child, not likely.
Let's not forget that as long as she is officially Myrcella Baratheon (the only scenario where I can imagine her marriage to Trystane proceeding) she is not without a Martell claim via her Targaryen great-grandmother, whose own great-grandmother was Myriah Martell. While it seems a tenuous relationship, she might just end up being one of those cousins Morienthar mentions above.
Doran has an uncle (or cousin?) as castellan of Sunspear, so I suppose he is next in line if Doran, Arianne and Trystan die.
Manfrey Martell a distant cousin
True, cousin Manfrey. He may hail from a branch that split off before the Targ marriages (using generational math, it's possible to predict that Doran is only three generations from Maron Martell and Daenerys Targaryen) or he may be closer. My point was that Myrcella has a claim, not that it's the best one. Let's face it- she's not actually a Baratheon at all, a fact I can't see being ignored forever. And if fAegon succeeds in being accepted as Elia's son, he will be the next in line, with Jon Snow in the mix closer than any Baratheon offspring if you accept RLJ. Finally, Daenerys would also be ahead of any Baratheons though behind her brother's children. Poor Ser Manfrey wouldn't stand much of a chance against these other claimants, who I wager all have more power behind them than a simple castellan.
Prince Doran took a jagged breath. “Dorne still has friends at court. Friends who tell us thingswe were not meant to know. This invitation Cersei sent us is a ruse. Trystane is never meant to reachKing’s Landing. On the road back, somewhere in the kingswood, Ser Balon’s party will be attacked byoutlaws, and my son will die. I am asked to court only so that I may witness this attack with my own eyesand thereby absolve the queen of any blame. Oh, and these outlaws? They will be shouting, ‘Halfman,Halfman,’ as they attack. Ser Balon may even catch a quick glimpse of the Imp, though no one else will.”
When Cersei hatches this plan, is she aware that some of Tyrion's mountain men are still in the Kingswood? I always assumed she would use her own men in costume, but is it possible she was she planning to hire them? It seems risky to have Myrcella go through the Kingswood. It would be pretty funny if Cersei's fake outlaws got slaughtered by the real outlaws.
Who are the 3 (I think) children with Varys helping him to see Kevan Lannister off?
Just 3 of his "little birds" (the kids he has trained to spy for him).
I did think as much, but thought there might be something I was missing with GRRM's description of them..pale faces and dark eyes, or something similar. Just thought it was worth checking.
Why did Ned claim Joff was the rightful King I believe he would not have done that, not honorable Ned Stark (I'm going to reread his last chapter)
He did it because he was promised that his daughters would not be harmed and he would be allowed to take the black. Neither of these promise were fulfilled, of course.
Is there some RL counterpart to Egg?
ETA: To be more precise, I am talking about Eggon V the king, not so much his younger self
was it the real jon snow stabbed or did mel pull the same trick she did with mance/rattleshirt? and what where mances sources with the nw who told him of Roberts visit to winterfell in agot?
Mance chalked up his knowledged to regular interaction betweem the NW and folks north of the Wall.
My crackpot theory is that it was Tormund's missing son not Jon that got stabbed.
