SummaryAdd a Summary
This summary only details the GRR Martin novella the Rogue Prince.
At the beginning of this story we learn that Viserys has chosen Rhayenra to be his successor because he has no sons. He soon remarries to Lady Allicent (who is the dowager queen in the Princess and the Queen). He then has true born sons and the debate is begun. Half of the kingdom is loyal to the Princess and half of the kingdom is loyal to the sons of Queen Allicent. Rhayenra's sons have debatable parentage, however she eventually remarries her uncle Prince Daemon. Lady Allicent proves fertile and has many children as well. The divide only gets worse and worse until the Dance of Dragons which begins with the death of the king at the end of the novella.
