Laws of sequence
A child prior to an uncle
Almost all the Houses with the exemption of the dornienses and also the Targaryen to comply with the regulations ándalas of sequence. In in this manner, the older kid legit inherits, adhered to by the offspring of that youngster. A child can acquire if there were no siblings living, and also these siblings do not have offspring. A kid will just acquire if his older sibling passed away without a beneficiary.
An uncle prior to a little girl
In in this manner, it prefers guys over ladies to acquire. The women lines are desheredadas, to ensure that guys normally acquire prior to ladies, also guys relevant collaterally (for instance, uncles/brothers prior to children). It is not clear exactly how this mission for male beneficiary was since he never ever needed to look much to discover a male beneficiary.
It is most likely that a female might acquire if it was the last offspring of all the lines patriarcarles (lines obtained man). For instance, a guy with a far-off connection of a women line (for instance, the kid of the sis of the king) would certainly not acquire prior to the child of a king; however a guy with a far-off connection of a male line (the kid of the sibling of the king) yes it would certainly. The Targaryen initially adhered to the sequence ándala, however after the Dance of Dragons started to follow this kind of sequence when Rhaenyra and also Aegon II defended the crown of his papa.
The Dance of dragons
Do not make differences in between category: the is the best a kid or a little girl legit and also their offspring that acquire.
This makes no difference in between sex; it is the earliest legit youngster and also his/her offspring that acquire.
In any kind of of these legislations of sequence, the bastards do not acquire anything. However, if a bastard is legitimized, they acquire nevertheless legit kids, consisting of ladies and also more youthful siblings. Although this is not constantly the instance and also can be factor of conflicts. This is why Roose is encouraged that Ramsay will certainly eliminate any kind of kids you have with Walda Fat, since these kids will certainly be legit and also will certainly come in the past Ramsay in his line of sequence (of Stinky II, in Dance of Dragons).
Normally just bastards identified (those welcome in your house of the papa) are legitimized. Ramsay Snow, Jon Snow, Aurane Seas, Edric Storm, Joy Hill and also the Serpents of Sand are instances of bastards being identified. People like Gendry and also Mya Stone are bastards without understanding, so it is really not likely to be legitimized in the books, since they would certainly require proof of your partnership and also not have it. In enhancement, just a king can legitimize a bastard, and also not a Lord or a Lord Protector.
These legislations of sequence are not created in rock. They might be changed or prevented if a Lord you desire. For instance, Tyrion is practically the beneficiary of Tywin at the start of a Game of Thrones (considering that Jaime rejects to relinquish her pledges, and also acquire). However, Tywin states to Tyrion in a Storm of Swords that will certainly not permit you to acquire Roca Casterly, which he assign as his beneficiary to Cersei.
Another remarkable exemption are the Assemblies of the sequence of the Islands of the Iron, in which the leader is selected despite the partnership based upon a ballot. This is utilized hardly ever and also just in remarkable conditions. Is what enabled Euron to be crowned prior to that Theon and also Asha.
An individual can have numerous titles. For instance, Tommen is presently in the books is King, the Lord of the Bastion of Storms and also Lord of Rocadragón. It is additionally the successor of Rock Casterly after their mommy. He might maintain the 4 titles if I wished to. Robert offered the lordship of the Bastion of Storms to his sibling Renly on purpose.
Lines of sequence of the Great Houses
I’ve consisted of all of you in the line of sequence from the moment of the Rebellion of Robert. If it shows up Jon Snow/Stark, we presume that Jon is the kid of Ned, if it shows up Jon Snow/Targaryen we presume that is public and also identified by the R+L=J.
- Bold: Head of your house
- Italics: not able to acquire for different factors
- Bastard might acquire if he is legitimized
- Enemy of the crown, might acquire if he is forgiven for his criminal activities

- Missing or assumed dead
