YOU are my political headache!
Being a teenager is stressful enough, but throw in the added responsibility of having your choices could result in societal collapse, and you have Rhaenyra. Poor Viserys has had five years shaved off his life from stress alone at this point.
It’s not as if the king’s anger is unwarranted. Would we be able to maintain our composure in a situation like this any more than Viserys was able to when Otto delivered the news? Not likely. The fact that Daemon wasn’t instantly dispatched demonstrates the king’s generosity…or his naïveté.
