    Agreed.

    * Aegon The Conqueror took the seven kingdoms because he and his two sisters had dragons to scare everyone.
    * Robert Baratheon took it by killing all the Targaryens (or so he hoped)
    * Cerci took it by sleeping with her brother leaving no Baratheon offspring.

    Er... It appears that way in the tv series, yes. But that is to glaze over a massive amount of other stuff that happens in the book.

    Are we talking about the same blonde? Queen Cersi (old blonde b1tch) and the crown are in debt. Daenerys Targareyn (young blonde khaleesi (horse-queen)) is just poor because her brother and mother fled Westeros before she was born.

    Chew the mintie was refering to Daenerys(horse queen) - she [according to the tv series] paid for her slave army by looting the home of Xaro Xhoan Daxos (black double crosser)

    But yes Cerci & the crown are in debt, therefore Joffrey couldnt afford to buy a slave army (even if it was legal in Westeros, which its not).

    But isnt the crown in debt to Tywin Lannister? So technically Cerci isnt in debt cos its her family paying for it?

    Only a small part of the debt is to Tywin. The much greater portion of debt is owed to the Bank of Braavos, and also to The Faith.

    After watching the first season, my DH read the book and told me i should too. There is sooo much more to the story!!!
    A lot of stuff isnt directly addressed in the tv show but rather just subtly hinted at.

    I did read the first book and maybe some if the second, but I just found it too hard going with the brutality etc. I think as a tv series I'm not as emotionally engaged or less confronted somehow.

    Another thing that put me off was the red lady, also puts me off the series. The religion \ mysticism type stuff.

    I still can't stop thinking about the 8000 babies killed by the slave army!
