    Why is Gendry the only hope for house Baratheon? Robert has many more bastards than him.

    Does anyone realize that all three of the Baratheon brothers cheated on their wives?

  9. Aidan Woodford says:

    if your counting bastards I’d say the Baratheons will be just fine

  10. Tribun says:

    The Baratheon are members of house Tagaryen. founder from the Baratheon house was a Tagaryen Bastard. So if Robert want to kill all Tagaryen shoud he do suicide in the past 😀

  11. Marcus Batterby says:

    I’m pretty sure stannis burned his daughter to save his army

  12. Life4Metalcore says:

    I never got the whole “Robert was a terrible king” motif through the show. Yes he didn’t do much from an administrative standpoint but he surrounded himself with people who were good administrators. With the possible exception of Littlefinger, who was working to undermine him, his council effectively ran the 7 kingdoms peaceably. He didn’t exterminate houses that didn’t support him in the rebellion and even pardoned the most loyal Targareyan supporters for the sake of unifying the kingdoms. As far a revolutionaries turned monarchs he was a pretty decent one. Tywin himself said it in his speech to Tommen about good kings that the ruler who listens to his advisers about matters he does not understand is a good one.

  13. Sergio Milho says:

    Maybe if renly and stannis desired to work together.

    Renly as king
    Stannis as supreme general

  14. WOOT WOOT says:

    Missing Stannis in the show… he was witty at times

    First dislike to this series of video 🙁 My favourite house is not well analyzed.
    And why you base your opinion only on TV serial ? It would be better with the foundation of books

  17. hey i exist says:

    these symbolism videos are great but i suggest you use elements from the book which is important and more interesting

  18. Johnny Gartland says:

    Born amidst salt and smoke… is he a ham?

  19. ijokesolo says:

    To be fair, he hit her that one time and regretted it. The abuse was mostly emotional.

    Stannis two biggest mistakes are killing his brother and daughter.
