    I really loved these History and Lore videos, they did a great job at enriching the world of Westeros/Essos through the eyes of the characters. They were great icing on the cake when it came to the earlier seasons, but as time passed, they startled to taste even better than the cake. And by the time the last season came around, even the icing wasn't worth it anymore.
    Here's hoping they can find new life in these spin-offs and save the franchise from the mistakes of David, Dan, and Bryan.

    I wish they would continue doing these histories and lores with the other books in the world of ASOIAF or new tales from westoros, essos, even go back to valriya. I mean George rr Martin doesn’t have to write them, he could approve them after they are written. I’d would be a really, really amazing idea if they did some of these leading up to the house of the dragon spinoff, using the new actors/characters to voice them, hell even if they don’t have time to animate, use old animations, but just a great way to get fans, specially the only the show fans, up to date, get us used to hearing the actors voices and start telling the story. But it prob won’t happen.

    Margaery's recounting of the Rebellion has more than a few flaws in it. Firstly it was Randyll Tarly that defeated Robert, not her father and her father called off Tarly from pursuing Robert, giving him a lease on life. Then Mace ineptly tied up 50,000 soldiers and nearly the entire navy of the Reach besieging 500 men in Storms End, when he could well have achieved the same result with 5,000 men and fewer ships. Mace's strategic ineptitude directly resulted in the Royalists losing the war as his army would have turned the tide at Stony Sept or the Trident easily. Her suggesting they waited as a potential favor to Robert also rings false as the Tyrells gained nothing from Robert's victory and is just her justifying her family's failings as military commanders.

      Yea that’s why they’re told in a POV like the books. The characters are unreliable narrators as they are biased to their own agendas

    • ade fay
      ade fay Year ago +1

      @Grand Admiral Zaarin I agree but it played out well for the tyrells either way. I just think Mace was a fool but was also taking some kind of orders from his mother the queen of thorns to stay at storms end and wait for things to develop more to see what they the tyrells would do next.

    • Grand Admiral Zaarin
      Grand Admiral Zaarin Year ago +2

      @ade fay That was their explanation after the fact, but it doesn't actually hold water upon examination. They'd wronged Robert twice in the Rebellion, were some of the last Royalists to quit and also played pivotal parts for the Royalists early in the war. They weren't trying to 'play it safe' they were genuinely incompetently led by Mace. Mace wanted glory and to show off but didn't have the slightest clue how to progress a war, he took credit for Randyll's victory over Robert then set about besieging Storms End for a year, he sent some soldiers to the Trident as well. He chose poorly as he had the power to shift the war in either side's favor and reap the benefits, but instead sat outside a castle wasting resources, gold and time and doing no one any good with the only thing to show for it being alienating both sides.

    I love how Karma is a big part of this story, Aerys was jealous of Tywin even though he did a fine job at managing the Seven Kingdoms for him and treated him like shit, and Tywin and his Army could have easily turned the tide and win the war for Aerys.

    Harrenhal was truly cursed. Ageon burnt it, no lord can hold it without being wiped out, the sucession council held there sowed the seeds for the Dance, Daemon and Aemond both perished there, and the tourney spelled the end of Rhaegar (and thus Aerys as well)

    Wait did the show leave out that the Baratheons had a Targaryen grandmother? Admittedly I don't remember them ever mentioning it, now that I think about that. I know they cut out Jaehaerys II. Kind of a shame. I always loved the irony of Robert so vehemently hating the "dragonspwan" despite being at least 1/4 Targaryen himself.

      When GoT first aired (szn 1), Kit/Emelia/Maisie/Sophie/Alphie/Conleth etc were utterly unknown.
      The only known actors were "C List" Lena Headey from her rather minor role in 300 (i may be butchering the spelling of these people, my apologies), and Aiden Gillen just from The Wire (what a brilliant actor he is!). And then "B List" (being generous) Sean Bean... who lost his head in episode 9.
      My point being, at least in my opinion, the fact I didnt recognize these actors amplified the immersive-ness of the show. It was so damn good that I almost felt like it was real, like Maisie Williams *was* Arya - because I had never seen her face before. I guarantee these people get called their GoT names everywhere they go, to this very day.. "holy shit its Jon Snow! The King in the North!" Etc etc
      My very long-winded point is that if they do make these prequels, and they attempt to do it *right* like seasons 1-4 of GoT, I would very much love for them to get a completely new cast of basically unknown actors to fill the roles. Not being able to recognize the actors really amplifies the suspension of belief/reality for becoming hooked on a fantasy series such as this. As much as I would love to see Emelia and Kit back in Westeros, I would never be able to separate them from Dany and Jon, hence making the show less immersive.
      Just one man's opinion. Love the channel!

    Seems like Howland could be a good candidate for the Mystery Knight? Most say it was Lyanna or Rhaegar, but the way this is all written makes it seem more likely. A Stark (Lyanna, Ned, Brendan, Benjen) or Howland seem most likely....

    • HazelOrb
      HazelOrb 3 months ago

      It’s Lyanna. Howland isn’t a very good rider, whereas Lyanna is often described as “half a horse” in relation to her riding abilities. Other characters like Jaime also mentions that jousting is more about the rider’s skill with a horse than the actual jousting.

    To be very honest rhaegar Targaryen was never going to beat Robert Baratheon no matter how their conflict went it was said that Robert Baratheon was the most strongest man in Westeros along with the mount(Gregor clegane) Robert Baratheon was a formidable fighter with his hammer and rhaegar was just the average sword man he liked music more than fighting not to mention their immense size difference Robert Baratheon being 6’6 and rhaegar targaryen only 6’1-6’3 roberts hammer was so heavy that most men could not even lift it with 2 hands and Robert swung his hammer around so swiftly and easily plus he is very fast for a 6’6 guy so rhaegar would never beat Robert

      @Masulu Bonak seems like things were pretty good under his reign. The one weakness was getting the kingdom into debt and not paying enough attention to know that he wouldn’t have produced kids that looked like that, not 3 of them.

    • Anthony Lombardo
      Anthony Lombardo Year ago

      indeed. Barristen might have foresaw the casual Frey reinforcments, yet due to being pussies they backed out, thus during the battle lowing the morale of their side drastically. But yea definitely out matched.

    39:56 And that's the moment of Westeros history when Roberts reign got curse and him and all his allies paid deadly for it. How many things would have change if Robert wouldn't have pardon the murder of two innocent children. A clear sign that the gods of Westeros don't forget these types of sins.

    The only character I truly feel sorry for is Stannis. He is more honor bound than Ned was, atleast until the Red Priestess ruined his life over her half seen visions. Who she really saw was Jon, yet blinded by her hubris she tried to force Stannis to manifest her visions

    • Silas Nai

      If hes so honourable why did he wait until Rob was dead to declare his nieces and nephews bastards? Stannis was an opportunist. Not nearly as honorable as Ned on his worst day.

      Totally agree regarding sympathy for Stannis. However, without her half seen visions, and pushing stannis to complete her visions, Jon Snow in both the books and show most likely would’ve perished at the wall… it had to happen as bad as it is

    I don't think the knight of the laughing tree was Lyanna. It was Ned.

    • Dominique Odom
      Dominique Odom Year ago +3

      It being Ned doesn't make any Sense. Lyanna is the one most likely to be the Laughing Knight due to the fact that Rhaegar was sent to apprehend this Mystery Knight,which led into Rhaegar crowning Lyanna Queen of Love and Beauty and also led into the two going missing into Dorne after the Tourney.

  • Iuliu
    Iuliu Year ago +10

    Huge spoliers below (or not).
    For me, this makes even more clear that:
    1. Littlefinger is Catlyn's half borther.
    2. It was Littlefinger who lied to Brandon that Rhaegar abducted Lyanna. "Ahh the Starks - quick tempers, small minds".
    3. King Aerys named Jaime to the kings guard to have his son, Tyrion, as heir of Casterly Rock; or to stick it to Tywin by showing him who rules in Westeros. Both reasons are valid. I think we will never find out if Tyrion is a Targaryen, as his story works if he is and also works if he isn't.
    4. Rhaegar thought he had to die. He wounded Robert in the direct confrontation, but let him have his final hammer blow.
    5. The Mad King was not that mad...I think he somehow knew he will be the last Targaryen king and a white tree from the north will be responsible. Something related to Kings Landing and wild fire would be his only hope...
    P.S. I definetly believe Daenerys will warg into Drogon when she will be killed; and it will be her (as Drogon) that will burn the Iron Throne.
    6. Jon Snow will go north of the wall (what will be left of it) as it's the only way to actively "not want the throne". - Maester Aemon did the same not only by words, but also by taking the wouws of the Nights Watch.

    • Jazeene Sibley
      Jazeene Sibley Year ago

      @TheDzudas I think you’re greatly underestimating Rhaegar. He was a very good and proficient fighter. So you saying 5 Rhaegar’s couldn’t beat Robert is a stretch. Especially seeing as he had greatly wounded Robert. Also if only Robert’s bastards are left why would they make them kings? Only a king/queen can legitimize a bastard and I don’t see who would do that for Gendry. He has no support and literally zero claim to be he throne. Who would want him as kind? Also why do you believe Gendry and Arya will end up together? I don’t see anything in the books that suggest Arya would want that.

    • TheDzudas

      @ColdHands Jon and Denny will die = Azora Ahai and Nissa Nissa. I belive Stannis will also die and YG (i have theory that one of Dennys dragons Will kill him. So only Robert bastards are left ( Gendry older and Edric younger). I belive Gendry and Arya will be King and Queen, i have pretty good argumments for that

      @ColdHands he's not interested in the throne and if the white walkers are defeated then he will see no purpose in ruling. He might also be affected by the great wars losses that he would be tired of the south.
