With the 100 year anniversary of the Great Wars end I’ve been reading up on that cataclysm and couldn’t help but wonder why westeros didn’t have a system like Austria-Hungary’s dual monarchy but with six, then seven kingdoms (Sept-monarchy?), where various regions had more autonomy. Or is that what they actually have with the lords paramount? Just curious if you see any parallels, thanks!

Westeros has some similarities, what with the seven Lords Paramount and the tradition, for at least a time, of the Targaryens accepting existing laws of each of the kingdoms.
