* VicariouslyAmbitious: The nature of politics in Westeros means that there are two main means of doing some social climbing: accomplish great deeds on the field of battle, or arrange an advantageous marriage so that your children and their children will move up to the next social ring rather than you. Many people throughout the series plan not for themselves to move up the social hierarchy, but their children and grandchildren.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Tyrannicide}}:
** Jaime Lannister a.k.a. "TheKingslayer". In the backstory, he killed an evil, mad king, [[InTheBack through the back]]. It did a lot of good for the realm, [[spoiler: saving over half a million lives that the Mad King was just about to end]] and putting an end to a destructive civil war. [[NeverLiveItDown No one will let him forget it, though]], because he was the King's own [[BodyguardBetrayal personal bodyguard]] and [[TheOathbreaker oathbound to protect him]], and he's also the son of the arriviste Lannister family that the rebels saw as "Johnny come latelies" who parlay their opportunistic actions to grab royal favor. He is seen by many as a disagreeable KarmaHoudini who should at the very least been ReassignedToAntarctica rather than continue as bodyguard. The fact that [[spoiler:he saved the city from wildfire annihilation is unknown to everyone in Westeros save Brienne and the reader]].
** Brienne undergoes similar prejudice when she is thought to have killed Renly Baratheon, having been found in his tent with him just after he dies. In reality he was murdered by a shadow assassin conjured by a witch who was in league with Renly's brother Stannis Baratheon, though as Stannis had more right to the Iron Throne, and [[TheEvilPrince Renly]] was clearly TheUsurper and intended to kill Stannis that day this doesn't seem so great a crime. Later Renly's secret lover Ser Loras Tyrell meets Brienne and demanded she be punished for Renly's death, even though the Tyrells are currently allied with the Lannister regime Renly intended to overthrow.

** [[spoiler: Jon Snow. In ''A Dance with Dragons'', he gives his sworn brothers every indication that he is ceding the realm to the wildings (whom the night watch has fought for centuries); he also appears to be going off to become involved in the game of thrones by attacking Ramsey Bolton and thereby breaking his oath while he dispatches men on a suicide mission. Sealing the deal, he neglects to keep his protective direwolf with him, despite very explicit warnings of what could occur. He is predictably stabbed in a mutiny.]].
