Default Re: A Game of Thrones

The background on the Targaryean family is really helpfull, and has made what has seemed pretty cheesey stuff, like the brother's repeated warnings to the sister about not "awakening the dragon" make a lot more sense.

That and it really clarified King Robert's ascension, the reason for the rebellion, and his awkward relationship with the Lannisters.

I do find it odd that Ned and King Robert have so much resentment for Jamie Lannister for his stabbing the mad king in the back when he was responsible for the death of their sister / would be wife.
