Luckylyn June 29, 2016 Share June 29, 2016 I was thinking about what Dany said about marriage being a way to forge alliances. I do wonder if she will be like Queen Elizabeth I and use the possibility of marriage for leverage while never ever marrying. I think an alliance between Jon and Dany is likely. Tyrion and Theon both sympathize with the North and would probably try to push for Dany to work with the North. Sansa might be willing to agrue for a merger considering her history with Tyrion and Theon. It's just a matter of if it's an alliance through marriage or by her making him her heir. If Jon's the heir who he marries is critical. I don't think there will be a love match for him because he won't repeat Robb's error. Lyanna is made of awesome and would make a fantastic partner once she comes of age, but they are already allied quite strongly. Sansa may be his cousin but they have been raised as siblings. Plus, Jon doesn't need Sansa to connect him to the North because he has a claim to the North through his mother. I think Jon will have to marry someone who does not come from the North. Who? Margery's dead. Cersei might try to propose in order to get the North on her side against Dany but I can't see Jon ever trusting Cersei considering the history between their families and what Cersei has done to her own allies. Could Jon marry someone from Dorne or Yara? Who else is there? Who's running the Riverlands now? Whose going to head the Frays now that the males are dead? Would Jon marry whichever daughter is now in charge? Or does Edumure take charge through his Fray wife? Marriage to Sansa has been viewed as a way to gain control in the North. After what she has been through, I imagine she's be pretty reluctant to marry. Still she's become a political person and probably recognizes that marriage is a way to help strengthen alliances. Would Tyrion be a possibility? What about the Vale, Robin, and Littlefinger? I wonder if Sansa would try to maneuver around Littlefinger by marrying Robin and taking the Vale into her control. I don't know if she could manage that since Littlefinger isn't likely to let control of the Vale go easily. Also once Bran returns to the fold Sansa's position weakens and marriage may be the only way for her create a powerful position for herself. I think since Yara beat her opponent to make an alliance with Dany first I wonder if Euron will propose an alliance with Cersei who is in desperate need of allies and could use ship power to aid her in the coming battle with Dany. Are we going to get a Cersei, Euron, Littlefinger alliance? Imagine Cersei/Littlefinger married and on the warpath together temporarily until they inevitably turn on each other. Jaime was pushed out of the Kingsguard by Tommen. He can now marry. Will he break from Cersei to make a political marriage against her interests or will he side with Cersei and she marry him to someone for her political gain? edited to add: I forgot about Gendry who is the last Bartheon left. Is he Dany's future husband? 1 Link to comment
