Marg-Robert ask 2 Doesn’t it seem like there’s a whole lot of potential trouble if it succeeds? The Florents resent the Tyrells, and now Marg gets a crown where Delena got shame, her son gets to be heir while Edric is a Storm & alienated from his mom. And Stannis is their good-kin. Is that the safeguard against any Florent reaction or does he get brought into a Florent-Tyrell war dividing the Baratheons? If Robert dies, a regency for Marg’s son HAS to turn bloody right?
1. Interesting. I think it’s possible, but I’d lean more toward a different branch of the Lannisters being given the pre-eminence.
2. Given their actions in OTL, I think the Tyrells generally consider a crown to be worth the trouble. But as I’ve discussed before, GRRM made a bit of a mistake in making the Florents too small to really fulfill their role as a threat to the Tyrells of Highgarden.
