* BalanceOfPower: The Targaryens served as an OutsideContextVillain (from Westeros' perspective) for most of its near 300 years of reign. They held power by dragons but they also managed to keep a lid on all kinds of regional grudges and jealousies when they were in charge and they kept the Faith of the Seven on a leash, removing their militancy and curbing some of their most fundamentalist strains. Seventeen years after Robert's Rebellion when the new dynasty has a SuccessionCrisis, all the old problems come out, regional grudges, over-ambitious vassals, dislike between the North and the South and the South and the far south as well as religious fundamentalism is back and all of them trying to go back to some ideal past before Aegon's Conquest.
