* 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.

* SleazyPolitician: Is one at heart, although he's charming and charismatic enough so he doesn't appear like one.



* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Renly is remembered as a kind and heroic Lord who came back from the dead to save the Seven Kingdoms from his brother even though he was really just a vain and scheming figure who was impersonated after his death. Brienne still thinks of him as a good King, overlooking his unpleasant qualities.

** Steffon Baratheon, father to Robert, Stannis and Renly, was lifelong friends with Aerys Targaryen and Tywin Lannister, since they all grew up together and fought in the same war. He remained on friendly terms with both even after Aerys and Tywin's own friendship deteriorated. [[spoiler: Ironic, considering Steffon's sons, Robert and Stannis, would later become great threats to both Aerys and Tywin.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfFriendship: Unlike most great houses, Baratheons are not concerned so much with family (since they often find it difficult to get along), but by their meaningful friendships. They just love their RedOniBlueOni dynamics.
** We initially have [[LargeHam Robert]] [[BoisterousBruiser Baratheon's]] OddFriendship with [[TheQuietOne Ned]] [[TheStoic Stark.]] He sees Ned as a brother even more than his actual brothers, whom he can't stand. And working together, they were able to lead half the realm in overthrowing the Targaryens.
** Renly is very proud of his ability to win friends easily. He spends more time with his close companion Loras Tyrell and his family than with his own relatives. His popularity and charming personality making him the one claimant to the throne with the most supporters at the outset of the War of the Five Kings. According to Renly, his power lies in the combined strength of his many "friends." [[spoiler: Subverted, in that none of Renly's friends were able to save him from his death, and most of them joined forces with the man who ordered it immediately after.]]
** Stannis believes he has no friends, only subjects and enemies. But his most meaningful relationship is with Davos Seaworth, a lowborn smuggler. Davos saved Stannis' and his people during the Siege of Storm's End, and Stannis subsequently raised Davos to nobility and [[TheConsigliere made him his right hand man.]] In truth, Davos is the OnlyFriend Stannis has. Since neither are well-loved by their peers, they are each other's strongest supporters.
** Orys, the first Baratheon, was Aegon the Conqueror's OnlyFriend and most trusted man. It was even rumored that they were half-brothers.
