* TopWife: This trope is in effect in the Murgo royal court. Urgit's mother doesn't mind at all that Silk killed Taur Urgas' eldest son, because he was the son of the "first wife" (who used to boast that she would have her son order the execution of all the lesser wives as soon as he took the throne). Later in the ''Malloreon'', when the marriage arrangements between Urgit and Prala are being arranged, one line in the contract states that Prala will have the permanent rank of most favored wife.

* TopWife:
** Aegon "The Conqueror" Targaryen [[BrotherSisterIncest married both his sisters]], Rhaenys and Visenya; however, he loves the former more than the latter. Of course, both of them compete for Aegon's affection. Later on, Visenya puts her son, [[TheCaligula Maegor the Cruel]], into the Iron Throne ahead of Rhaenys' grandsons who are lawful heirs of Aenys I, Aegon and Rhaenys' son. Ironically, the majority of the Targaryen descendants came from Rhaenys' bloodline.
** Though he was never married, Prince Oberyn Martell is very promiscuous and had eight bastard daughters from five women. Among the five women who bore his daughters, Ellaria Sand is his closest and most favorite lover and is also the mother of his four younger daughters. If ever Oberyn marries someone else for political reasons, Ellaria would be considered to be his mistress

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: When he gets tired of Torak's mind games, Garion makes it a point to tell him off.
-->'''Garion:''' I know you now. You might as well give up trying to win me over to your side, because I'm not going to change my mind. Aunt Pol is not your wife, and I'm not your son. [[BadassBoast You'd better stop trying to play games with my thoughts and get ready, because I'm coming to kill you.]]
