    I love that Visenya basically just parked right in Sharra’s yard, took her son out for a fun day, and they had a civil chat probably over tea. Shockingly wholesome… I mean aside from the fact that Visenya definitely kidnapped her son and played nice with him to terrify Sharra into submission.

    The Conquest pretty much shows how OP the Dragons are and how difficult to kill.

    Too bad you didn't mention the letter the Martells sent to Aegon after Rhaenys died. The letter he held so tight his hands bleed. The letter nobody knows what it said but that made Aegon abandon his plans to conquer Dorne.

    The Targaryen origins in Valyria leading up to their escape before the destruction would make an epic prequel series. The rise of the Targaryens. Not mention we'd get a shitload more dragons.

    The amount of detail in these stories are amazing, I'd put my money on a GoT spinoff for sure

    Man, it still blows my mind. How did GRRM come up with all this in depth history and lore for each family and each castle for literally every generation going back like 5000 years from the year Game of Thrones is set in... so crazy...

    Not sure why but I feel bad for Rhaenys dying in Dorne. For some reason I like her character, even tho there isnt much written about her
