You can only get "The Princess and the Queen" in the anthology Dangerous i just googled the titles and then added pdf at the end and some. The Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The Greens book. To be fair, my edition is a pdf file created from the text the author put online quite a while. Once upon a time there was a king and queen who lived in a golden castle with One night an ugly ogre captured the beautiful princess and.
The next morning, when the girl joined them at breakfast she looked very very tired. But all night long I tossed and turned because I was so uncomfortable. It was no good, however hard I tried, I could not sleep.
The prince was overjoyed. His grooms and his knights and his squires and his cooks and his horses who had had to search all over the land for a real princess with him were overjoyed, at last they could have a rest.
The king and queen were overjoyed because, at last, they could see their son, the prince, was happy.
The real prince and the real princess married and lived happily ever after being very very fussy together.
Grand Maester Orwyle opened the meeting by reviewing the customary tasks and procedures required at the death of a king. Lord Beesbury spoke on behalf of Princess Rhaenyra. The ancient master of coin, who had served King Viserys for his entire reign, and his grandfather Jaehaerys the Old King before him, reminded the council that Rhaenyra was older than her brothers and had more Targaryen blood, that the late king had chosen her as his successor, that he had repeatedly refused to alter the succession despite the pleadings of Queen Alicent and her greens, that hundreds of lords and landed knights had done obeisance to the princess in AC, and sworn solemn oaths to defend her rights.
But these words fell on ears made of stone. Ser Tyland pointed out that many of the lords who had sworn to defend the succession of Princess Rhaenyra were long dead.
I was a child at the time. Make no mistake, should Rhaenyra ever sit the Iron Throne, it will be Daemon who rules us, a king consort as cruel and unforgiving as Maegor ever was. My own head will be the first cut off, I do not doubt, but your queen, my daughter, will soon follow.
Daemon will find some pretext to put them all to death. Even Helaena and her little ones. Should the princess reign, he reminded them, Jacaerys Velaryon would rule after her. Even the boys … we know what Laenor was. Though glib of tongue when need be, the master of whisperers hoarded his words like a miser hoarding coins, preferring to listen rather than talk.
The princess will not meekly stand aside, and she has dragons. I am an old man, but not so old that I will sit here meekly whilst the likes of you plot to steal her crown. And so the first blood shed in the Dance of the Dragons belonged to Lord Lyman Beesbury, master of coin and lord treasurer of the Seven Kingdoms.
No further dissent was heard after the death of Lord Beesbury. No ravens flew that night. No bells rang. Queen Alicent alone amongst them was excused from the oath, on the account of her womanhood. Dawn was breaking over the city before Queen Alicent dispatched the Kingsguard to bring her sons to the council. One-eyed Prince Aemond, nineteen, was found in the armory, donning plate and mail for his morning practice in the castle yard.
Feel free to search beneath the blankets.
The remaining wealth was to be used for bribes and gifts, and to hire sellswords if needed. A day passed, then another. Neither septons nor silent sisters were summoned to the bedchamber where King Viserys lay, swollen and rotting. Ravens flew, but not to Dragonstone.
They went instead to Oldtown, to Casterly Rock, to Riverrun, to Highgarden, and to many other lords and knights whom Queen Alicent had cause to think might be sympathetic to her son. The annals of the Great Council of were brought forth and examined, and note was made of which lords had spoken for Viserys, and which for Rhaenys, Laena, or Laenor.
The lords assembled had favored the male claimant over the female by twenty to one, but there had been dissenters, and those same houses were most like to lend Princess Rhaenyra their support should it come to war.
The princess would have the Sea Snake and his fleets, Ser Otto judged, and like as not the other lords of the eastern shores as well: Lords Bar Emmon, Massey, Celtigar, and Crabb most like, perhaps even the Evenstar of Tarth.
All were lesser powers, save for the Velaryons. Though old Lord Boremund had died, his son Borros was even more belligerent than his father, and the lesser storm lords would surely follow wherever he led.
Whereupon she sent for her second son. On her back rode Prince Aemond Targaryen, with a sapphire in the place of his missing eye. The dungeons under the Red Keep had swallowed up so many men suspected of disloyalty that even the High Septon had begun to wonder at these disappearances, and sent word from the Starry Sept of Oldtown asking after some of the missing.
Ser Otto Hightower, as methodical a man as ever served as Hand, wanted more time to make preparations, but Queen Alicent knew they could delay no longer.
