Added DiffLines:

* IgnoredEpiphany: He briefly balks at Cersei's plan for him to lie to the High Sparrow that [[spoiler:he bedded Margaery]], commenting that "I think you go to one of them hells for that." However, he changes his mind when he hears the reward she promises him for doing so.

Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: The only guard captain not to side with Unwin Peake's conspiracy.

Added DiffLines:

* ForcedToWatch: At the command of King Jaehaerys, Jonquil imposed this on Princess Saera Targaryen, forcing her to watch her father's DuelToTheDeath with Braxton Beesbury, the worst of the three men she'd taken as lovers, so Saera would know whoever died in that duel, the blood would be on her hands.


* TheCityNarrows: The King's Landing neighborhood is Flea Bottom, nestled between Aegon's Hill and Visenya's Hill, is noted to be a crime-ridden slum with some of the most appalling living conditions in the kingdom.

* FateWorseThanDeath: Sansa invokes this when convincing Joffrey to spare his life, arguing that it would be far crueler to Dontos.



* NakedPeopleAreFunny: At Joffrey's name-day tournament, he is so drunk that he shows up wearing nothing but his breastplate and helmet.

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: At Joffrey's name-day tournament, he is so drunk that he shows up wearing nothing but his breastplate and helmet. Unfortunately for him, the only person in the audience who ''doesn't'' find it funny is [[TheCaligula Joffrey]].

[[folder:Tropes Relating to the Crownlands]]

* AtTheCrossroads: Many of the major roads of Westeros converge at King's Landing. Justified because they were built by King Jaehaerys I specifically to connect the rest of the kingdom to the capital city.
* TheCityNarrows: The King's Landing neighborhood is Flea Bottom, nestled between Aegon's Hill and Visenya's Hill, is noted to be a crime-ridden slum with some of the most appalling living conditions in the kingdom.
* CityOfSpies: King's Landing is home of the royal court, and so many of the nobles hire spies to keep tabs on both their allies and opponents.
* TheGenericGuy: The Crownslands as a whole doesn't have a distinct culture because it wasn't an autonomous region until recently. Other regions had millennia to develop their unique cultural identities, while the Crownslands has only existed for about 300 years and much of it was previously disputed territory between the storm kings, river kings, and ironborn.
* WretchedHive: King's Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms and it's largest city, is noted to be filthy, overcrowded, and dangerous to live in if you can't afford bodyguards.

A knight of House Byrch and Faylse Stokeworth's husband.

A knight of House Byrch and Faylse Falyse Stokeworth's husband.



* SketchySuccessor: Subverted all to hell. Ordinarily, an established House like the Stokeworth one wouldn't look twice at little Tyrion to carry the bloodline forward: being a bastard is bad enough, let alone ''how'' he came to be conceived. Except... he's the only child they're likely to get in this generation (Faylse is not young and hasn't any children, either). And, he ''is'' a boy. Unless Bronn can convince Lollys to try for, at best, a couple more shots, he's the only game in town. However, he hasn't been given the name of Stokeworth, which was an option upon being declared a legitimate descendant (see the Mormonts). Desperate enough to take him; proud enough to not let him have the name?
