  • Why didn't Lyanna and Rhaegar say something to stop the descent into war they had inadvertantly started? And how was it that that one lie led so quickly to civil war?

    Someone pointed me to these videos. I mentioned in another that I never understood why they didn't tell the truth and how it all went to hell and this makes so much sense. Seriously. I can see Littlefinger setting so much of the mess into motion.

    Oh come on, this is going way too far into Rhaegar/Lyanna-apologist territory. Of COURSE Rhaegar could have known he risked war by running away with the betrothed of the Lord of Storm's End and sister of the (notoriously impulsive) heir to Winterfell. They also knew what the Mad King was capable of. It's not as if they "couldn't have known all this would happen." They could, they probably did, but they run away together anyway. Probably because they were young and foolish, comparable with Robb and Jeyne Westerling later.

    Rheagar was a jackass he didn't care for his children and wife. If he did he would have secured their safety. Leanna was a whore chasing a married guy.

    Well, Lyanna was betrothed to Robert so. that was not the lie. the lie was the kidnap and rape of Lyanna by Rhaegar, and I think Robert was the one who started the lie, and perhaps Rhaegar and Lyanna died before they had a chance to find out the lie existed.

    This stark thing of thrm having hot temper is what did them in. In battle you use your enemies weakness to your advantage. He also did the same to the Lannisters their lust for power is what did them in as well!

    Littlefinger lying to Brandon Stark, starting Robert’s Rebellion and realizing “Oh shit, I DID THIS” and becoming a man we see in books and TV show makes sooooo much sense. Mind blown!
