  • How did the Baratheons and Targaryens hook up? I haven't read any of the books....obviously! 😕

  • Orys was aegons bastard brother
    12-Aug-2017 17:59:48 PM
  • And the house's words...."Ours is the fury"
    12-Aug-2017 17:59:50 PM
  • @kbdees Orys Baratheon was the bastard brother of Aegon and his true friend
    12-Aug-2017 17:59:57 PM
  • If he was a bastard, how did he get the Baratheon name? Who were his parents? Obviously a Baratheon & Targaryen right? But trying to figure out the family tree! Thanks for your insight @the.roses.of.winterfell
    12-Aug-2017 18:03:38 PM
  • Aerion Targaryen was his father (who was the father of Aegon I ) @kbdees
    12-Aug-2017 18:06:00 PM
  • @kbdees Baratheon was Orys' bastard name. That's how house Baratheon started, when Orys defeated Argilac he took his keep Storms End, his daughter, his sigil a black stag on yellow and his family words " Ours is the Fury". Orys was the bastard brother of Aegon

  • The book let us know how house Baratheon got his sigil and words but not how they actually got their name
    12-Aug-2017 18:07:30 PM
  • Wow, this is complicated! So Robert had Targaryen blood! Yet he killed Rhaegar over love! Sounds like they all intermarried...the different houses that is! @the.roses.of.winterfell
    12-Aug-2017 18:09:56 PM
  • @kbdees yeah he had targaryen blood but he hated every targaryen ironically
    12-Aug-2017 18:12:59 PM
  • @kbdees @koyluariel yea but the blood was ancient, so it becomes irrelevant to a point
    12-Aug-2017 18:14:24 PM
  • Also Baratheon may be a bastard name, with Bara meaning Of for Valyrian bastard surnames and Theon being an ancestor or parent (Bara-Theon) however this isn't really backed
    12-Aug-2017 18:16:14 PM
  • So they didn't use "Snow" to indicate they were a bastard back then? When did that start? I love the explanation of "Bara Theon". Sheds a lot of light on things! @therealliamhenderson
    12-Aug-2017 18:25:21 PM
  • @the.roses.of.winterfell @kbdees @therealliamhenderson rumored bastard. We aren't certain. But Robert has closer Targaryen blood which is why he got the the crown. Rhaelle Targaryen was Rhaegar's great aunt and Robert's grandma so they are cousins

  • @kbdees Snow, Sand, Water, Flower, Hill, Rivers, Pyke, Stone and Storm are traditionally Westorosi depending on the region in which the father was from. Valyrians didn't adopt these customs until the installation of the iron throne
    12-Aug-2017 18:30:36 PM
  • @danielmartin_rnv yea it is never confirmed if he was Aegon's brother
    12-Aug-2017 18:32:00 PM
  • @kbdees note: only Valyrians in black water adopted this ( Targaryen, Valerion, Celtigar, Sunglass, etc)
    12-Aug-2017 18:33:09 PM
  • Also it is custom for high born bastards to establish their own names. Such as Daemon Waters of Targaryen creating Blackfyre or an unknown bastard of Reyne creating Vikary
    12-Aug-2017 18:37:30 PM
  • And he also took the Durrandon sigil for his own sigil, that's why House Baratheon has a black stag over a yellow field. It became a crowned stag after Robert became the King of 7 kingdoms.

  • We shud get a prequal
    12-Aug-2017 19:35:28 PM
  • George has said we'll know everything we need to know about Roberts rebellion by the end of ASOIAF so he doesn't reckon one of the spinoffs will be about that.

  • @youngwolf_24 and also took their words:)
    12-Aug-2017 22:42:32 PM
  • The battle was led by orys, but there was also Rhaenys riding meraxas, the battle took place during a hard storm, the dragon wasnt able to fly so it stood on earth, even thought he was so agressive, finally the beast killed many men, and rhaenys and his half brother took the castle, killed the king, and put in jail his daughter who married orys years after
