tommen baratheonfictional character
Beware, spoiler alert. Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) has been touted as the possible savior of Westeros, but what if he’s actually the cause of its ruin in Game of Thrones?
‘Oathbreaker,’ the third episode of the HBO series’ sixth season, made a big reveal when Bran shouted «Father!» to Ned Stark (Robert Aramayo) and Ned seemed to have heard him despite the fact that in theory his son could only see the past. So what does this mean? If Bran really can interact with the protagonists in his visions, can he interfere with the course of past events?
In the history of Westeros (Westeros) there have been several Brandon Starks who became legends such as Bran the Builder, Bran the Breaker and other famous kings, so Ned’s son could follow the same glorious fate, although he could also be infamously remembered.
«From episode 3 of season 6, Bran realizes that others can hear him during his visions of the past, but he doesn’t realize that they don’t hear him clearly. Bran tries to reason with King Aerys when he has a vision about him. The king hears only whispers that drive him mad. Bran tries to work it out, but makes everything worse. ‘Mad King’ Aerys burns Bran’s grandfather alive as Bran desperately tries to stop him. What he hears are only whispers. Bran is the one who starts the events of the series,» wrote a redditor, being supported by the community that follows Game of Thrones.
The relationship between Aerys and Tywin began to crack when Tywin married his cousin, Joanna Lannister. Aerys had a passion for Joanna and some of the «jokes» Aerys made towards Joanna were not well received by Tywin. On the other hand, Aerys’ character made him easy prey for sycophants, who despised Tywin as a way to please the king. Soon Aerys began to try to rely less on Tywin as a way of proving his worth as his character became more erratic and paranoid.
The kidnapping of Lyanna Stark by Rhaegar caused the heir of House Stark to come to King’s Landing demanding justice; Aerys accused him of conspiracy and ordered him arrested. When his father arrived to answer for him, he demanded a trial by combat; Aerys declared Valyrian fire the champion of the Targaryens and burned Lord Stark in his own armor while his son was strangled. These events caused the so-called Robert’s Rebellion when Houses Stark, Baratheon, Tully and Arryn rose up against the Iron Throne. The rebellion continued to spread so Aerys removed Lord Owen Merryweather as Hand of the King and appointed Jon Connington, a young friend of Rhaegar’s known for his boldness and vigor. Connington’s defeat in battle caused Aerys to dismiss him; Rhaegar asked him to appoint Tywin as Hand, but he refused and appointed his Coin Counselor, Lord Qarlton Chelsted. After Prince Rhaegar’s defeat and death at the Battle of the Trident, Aerys saw that the war was lost and sent his pregnant wife and son Viserys to Dragonstone while he remained in the Red Keep with Princess Elia Martell as a way of securing Dorne’s loyalty.
Actor Paddy Considine, who has recently worked for HBO with roles in series like The Outsider and The Third Day, has signed on to play King Viserys Targaryen, one of Daenerys’ ancestors and who, in fact, has the same name as the Mother of Dragons’ brother (and also inspired the name of one of her sons, the dragon Viserion).
Unlike most kings we are used to because of Game of Thrones, this leader of the Targaryen dynasty is considered a decent, kind and good person who is only trying to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy. Whether such a thoughtful man can be a good king on the Great Council of Harrenhal is another matter.
House of the Dragon will be based on G.R.R. Martin’s Fire and Blood novel, the companion book he wrote to the Song of Ice and Fire saga that adapted Game of Thrones. It focuses on the three centuries of the Targaryen family’s reign until Robert Baratheon usurped the throne from Aerys II, also known as the Mad King and Daenerys’ father.
