So, who do you think is the rightful ruler of Westeros?
(If you haven't read everything, but still want to play the game, maybe a thread in the TV-only or rampant speculation section would be fun?)
Might makes right: whoever can take the throne, probably Dorne or a Targaryen.
Inheritance: Stannis, as Robert's true heir. But then, Robert took the throne by force, so maybe it should be Prince Aegon or Dany.
Whoever earns it: Stannis is certainly trying to earn it by saving the realm from Others and Boltons. Jon is/was doing a better job, and might also count from an inheritance point of view if the standard theory of his parentage is correct. Dany is trying to learn to be a good ruler too, although now she seems to have accepted that she's all about the blood and fire so who knows if that will last.
No-one, they should all split up into separate kingdoms again and grow some damn crops already?
No-one, Sam should set up a nice democratic election and parliament so the villagers can vote?
Personally, I'm all for Jon being king. He takes his responsibilities seriously, but isn't such a noodle about honour as Ned was. He's prepared to do what it takes for the good of the people, and if he's older than Aegon then he inherits too.
How fleeting are all human passions compared to the massive continuity of ducks.
