\n** Except Ezar [[http://vorkosigan.wikia.com/wiki/Wife_of_Ezar_Vorbarra didn't have a family at the time]]; Yuri really was paranoid, to the point he publicly [[http://vorkosigan.wikia.com/wiki/Yuri_Vorbarra#Behind_the_scenes threw the Privy Council out the window]]; and Ezar did end up losing both his wife and son - to [[http://vorkosigan.wikia.com/wiki/Serg_Vorbarra insanity]] inherited from [[http://vorkosigan.wikia.com/wiki/Wife_of_Ezar_Vorbarra#Behind_the_scenes Yuri's side of the family]].
** Really, signing on to a morally ''and'' strategically unjustified war, to kill one's own son and his sycophants/manipulators, is bad enough.

[[WMG: The civil war that claimed Mad Yuri's life was masterminded by Ezar.]]

* Ezar Vorbarra was the only one that gained from the whole mess. There is no mention of him losing any children or a wife.

\n** Although subverted in that Cordelia's daughters (and Oliver's sons) have ''Aral'' as a biological father. Cordelia and Oliver also have an open relationship, and live in separate houses. It's all ''very'' Betan.

* It is not impossible that the Imperials have their own traditions in such matters differing from the other Vor.

\n** The first is confirmed, the second is jossed. Miles comes to terms with his mother's love life fairly quickly.

Added DiffLines:

* Also "Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen" says that the information that was marked confidential has to do with Cetagandan bioweapons that weren't used during the war.

Added DiffLines:

* I have to disagree on the explanation: The Vorbarra dynasty's been portrayed as hypercompetent all on its own ever since Dorca Vorbarra in the Times of Isolation, and bloodthirsty insanity seems to be a design feature in other Barrayaran families as well, rather than a flaw

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: ''Commander Jole and the Red Queen'' will be about...]]

* ...Cordelia entering a relationship with Jole and eventually getting the daughter she always wanted. Miles will be... displeased at her disloyalty to his late father

* Besides, according to the same custom, everyone has two names, not one. For all we know, Gregor is actually Ezar Gregor, or Ezar was actually Gregor Ezar, but this is never mentioned - after all, somehow no-one managed to notice the correlation between Admiral Miles Naismith and Miles Naismith Vorkosigan (just how bad is information access between planets? in the modern internet, finding out Naismith's identity would be as simple as googling "Miles Naismith" and looking for portraits - he is a pretty prominent figure in Barrayaran politics since birth due to inheritance).

* Ma Kosti will be come a Vorkosigan Arms(wo)man, in order to keep various high-ranking relatives from stealing her away from Miles. Besides, "Vorkosigan does it backwards" - instead of having armsmen who are "cooks" like Count Vorloupulous, Count Vorkosigan an "armsman" who's a cook.
