Grand Maister

Corlys: House Velaryon originated in the times of ancient Valyria. It is older than House Targaryen, according to some writings. Unlike the Targaryens, we were not dragon lords. For centuries, my house drew its sustenance from the sea. With tenacity and luck. When I ascended the throne of Driftwood, I knew what I wanted. Then I understood. Unlike other gentlemen, I built my throne with sweat on my forehead. I always thought that you and me... We were made of the same fabric.
Daemon: I didn't know your brother was king.
Corlys: We both have to chart our destinies. We have been ignored far too often.
Daemon: Did you take me to Driftmark to remind me of my post? Or is there another reason? A conflict shakes the sept. A Myrien prince... He feeds the sailors crabs. I asked the king to send my fleet to this area.

Viserys: Hello, gentlemen. I decided to take a new wife. I'm getting married... .. Lady Alicent Hightower in late spring.
Corlys: But it doesn't make any sense. My house is of Valyrian descent. The most powerful in the kingdom.
Viserys: And I am your king.

Rhaenys: It bothers you, right?
Rhaenyre: My father is the King. He must remarry and strengthen the bloodline.
Rhaenys: I asked if you mind.
Rhaenyra: Laena is your daughter.
Rhaenys: Does that bother you?
Rhaenyra: Clear. But I understand the order of things. I doubt this is your case. If your intention was to arouse my anger, know that you have failed, princess.
Rhaenys: On the contrary. Let it be my daughter or someone else, your father will have a new wife. .. will generate new heirs... And one of them will inevitably be a boy. When he comes of age, you will be considered the heir to the throne, not you. Because that's the order of things.
Rhaenyra: Once queen, I will disturb you.
Rhaenys: I wish it were possible. But the kingdom could have appointed a queen to the Great Council of Harrenhal. He rejected the idea.
Rhaenyra: They rejected you, Princess Rhaenys "The Queen Who Wasn't" Not the idea of ​​a female queen, in fact those same men bowed to me.
Rhaenys: And do you remember them bringing them the wine? Here's the hard truth that no one dared to tell you. Men would give fire and blood to the kingdom instead of seeing a woman rule. Your father is not naive. The Select Council urges me to remarry.
Rhaenyra: The kingdom asks for a new queen. A kind and generous queen will reassure her subjects.

Alicent: Syrax is growing quickly. She'll soon be as large as Caraxes.
Rhaenyra: That's almost large enough to saddle two.
Alicent: I believe I'm quite content as a spectator, thank you.
