* BiTheWay: Despite his sexual preferences being well known, Cersei believes that Renly had sex with Margaery because she was available to him as his wife.

* BiTheWay: Despite his sexual preferences being well known, Cersei believes that Renly had sex with Margaery because she was available to him as his wife. Let's be honest, however, she just wants to get rid of Margaery anyway she can, and proving Margaery isn't a virgin as she claims is a surefire way to do that. Plus, her source is probably biased.

* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Of TheCharmer. His charisma leads the Stormlords and Reachmen to support his claim based on superficial reasons, rather than following the law or assessing his competence as a war leader or administrator. The result is that the war against the Lannisters is fatally undermined because the Stormlands and Reach are riven by factionalism.

** As Robb Stark points out, Renly's claim goes against the Westrosi rules of succession. Had Renly succeeded in taking the throne, the country's system of inheritance would be turned on it's ear as usurpation would be seen as socially acceptable.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hunk}}: Definitely, if the younger Robert did look like him. Robert is after all described in his prime as tall, handsome and muscled like a maiden's fantasy.

Added DiffLines:

* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: The actual house is becoming this out of necessity under Stannis (with some help from Renly). To date, the modern Baratheon army has included knights and lords of the Stormlands, the Crownlands, the Vale and the Reach alongside mountain clans of the North, pirates and sellswords from across the sea, a former smuggler, and, most notably, a red priestess from Asshai. There are even members of the Night's Watch and the Free Folk working in Stannis's interest (again, out of necessity), some of whom he isn't even aware of. He also might be able to persuade some Greyjoy raiders and Karstark soldiers to fight for him in the future.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: King Argilac desired to marry his daughter, the then Princess Argella, to King Aegon I in order to maintain her status as a queen. Aegon didn't desire a third wife but offered his rumored half-brother Orys' hand in marriage instead. As he was (said to be) bastard born Argilac took this as a massive slight, even sending him the hands of his [[ShootTheMessenger envoy who brought the offer]]. Eventually the Storm King ended up dying, at Orys' hands no less, his lands and house given to Orys as a reward for defeating him. The final insult was his daughter was eventually handed over to Orys by her own people in a deeply humiliating fashion. And the two eventually fell in love and married anyway.
