the REAL MVP of Game of Thrones (a chessmove walkthrough for all GoT noobs & haters)
 

 
image

While King Aegon IV had many bastard children, the mothers of four of them were also noblewomen, which encouraged him to formally acknowledge them. The four Great Bastards were Daemon Blackfyre (whose mother, secretly, was Daena Targaryen), Aegor "Bittersteel" Rivers (whose mother was a member of House Bracken), Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers (whose mother was a member of House Blackwood), and Shiera Seastar (whose mother was Serenei of Lys, from an ancient Valyrian noble family).

On his deathbed, after Aegon IV foolishly had all his bastards legitimized there was strife between them and his legitimate heir King Daeron II, tensions which ultimately split the realm apart in the devastating civil war known as the Blackfyre Rebellion. Bloodraven sided with their half-brother King Daeron II Targaryen, while his other half-brother, Bittersteel sided with his half-brother Daemon Blackfyre.

The First Blackfyre Rebellion ended in 196 AC with the Battle of Redgrass Field, in which Daemon Blackfyre and his eldest two sons were slain. It was Bloodraven's private company of archers, known as the Raven's Teeth, who rained arrows down upon Daemon Blackfyre and his two eldest sons, k*lling them.

image

After King Daeron II died in the Great Spring Sickness of 209 AC he was succeeded by his son Aerys I Targaryen - who proved to be a weak, absentee-king, more concerned with introverted scholarly pursuits than any form of governing. When Aerys I was crowned, however, Bloodraven was named as his new Hand of the King, a position he held throughout Aerys I's twelve-year reign. During that time, Bloodraven was the real power behind the throne, and the functional ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. Aerys I's rule was deeply troubled by plague, drought, and insurrection, and many blamed Bloodraven because he was in charge, but ultimately he was the man holding the realm back from the brink of chaos during this troubled period.

During his time as Hand of the King, Brynden was not only an effective administrator and strategist, but a cunning spy-master, and the information from his secret agents greatly aided his grip on power. His spies were so widespread that, also referring to the eye he lost in battle, a popular riddle at the time asked, "How many eyes does Lord Bloodraven have?" to which the answer was "A thousand eyes... and one..."

image

Aerys I died in 221 AC without issue, so he was succeeded by his younger brother Maekar Targaryen. Even though Maekar distrusted his uncle, he kept Bloodraven as Hand of the King. Maekar ruled for twelve years and was then succeeded by his own son, Aegon V Targaryen, also known as "Egg". During the Great Council that put Aegon V on the throne, Aenys Blackfyre had sent word from the Free Cities that he wanted to put himself forth as a legitimate candidate. Bloodraven promised him safe passage and Aenys accepted in good faith, but as soon as he set foot in King's Landing, the Gold Cloaks seized him and dragged him to the Red Keep, where Bloodraven promptly executed him.

This was decried as utterly dishonorable, but Bloodraven said he willingly paid the price to remove one more potential Blackfyre pretender, and accepted exile to the Night's Watch as punishment. In 233 AC, the year he was crowned, Aegon V had Bloodraven sent north as part of the "honor guard" that escorted his older brother, Maester Aemon, to the Wall.

image

In time, Bloodraven rose to become the new Lord Commander. He served long and well in this position, but one day he went out alone ranging beyond the Wall, and mysteriously never returned.

image

CLIFF NOTES for the reading impaired:

- Brynden Rivers was at one point the Tywin Lannister of his time. A powerful, all-knowing Hand of the King for 3 consecutive Targaryen reigns.
- During the reign of Aegon V
[spoiler - click to view]

Brynden did the necessary awful move by executing Aenys Blackfyre for his king, and was ultimately banished to the Night's Watch for it.
- In turn, he became the Jon Snow of his time. Brynden journeyed beyond the wall to become the Bran Stark of his time. The OG three-eyed raven.
- He personally guided and trained Bran Stark as the new three-eyed raven. That guidance and cosmic knowledge ultimately led the three-eyed raven to climb the chaos ladder and usurp the ENTIRE totalitarian Targaryen dynasty for the rest of history.
- Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers broke the wheel. That same wheel that banished him for doing his sworn duty. Bran Stark aka Bran the Broken is the first democratic authority in a united 7 kingdoms of Westeros.

Don't know how it can be argued that Bloodraven broke the wheel.. sh*t kept moving.

But I've got my own thoughts on him.. Couple baseline beliefs that I have

- I believe that greensight isn't a real power. It's just the state of having the Three Eyed Crow communicating with you. While we're on the subject of Blackfyre era Targaryens, I also think that Dragon Dreams are just the same. It's just the state of having the 3 Eyed Crow send visions

- I believe that the Brandon Stark we know is the origin of greensight, ie. he IS the 3 Eyed Crow, and is the ONLY 3 Eyed Crow that's ever existed in the story. Since it's made clear that while tapped into the Weirwoods, "greenseers" can see past/present/future, and it's been made clear that Bran can communicate with people through time, it's my belief that the 3 Eyed Crow that sends visions to people throughout time is ONLY Future Bran. This includes when Bran was visited by the 3EC when falling from the tower (also, pretty obviously when Jon awakens his skinchanging abilities). I believe that was just Future Bran talking to his younger self

- I also believe in All Bran theory, which is that our Brandon Stark is actually ALL of history's Brandon Starks.. through time warging. This dates all the way back to Bran the Builder (whose story really only make sense if it's our Bran), and probably further back to the First Man who was turned into the Night King (yes, I think Bran is the Night King too.. or whatever the book equivalent may be).

- Which leads back to Bloodraven. I think him being named Brynden is just a clue that he's also part of the lineage of Brandon Stark. Bran IS Brynden's "thousand eyes". It's just Bran, being able to see things through time, choosing to communicate with Brynden, and let him know things that he needs to know, so he can do things that Bran wants him to do.

- When our Bran meets Bloodraven for the first time, there are a couple of curious things that happen, that made me believe some of this. First, Bran believes Brynden is the 3 Eyed Crow, but then they both back off of that. Bran thinks Bloodraven can't be the 3 Eyed Crow, because he only has one eye.. and Bloodraven himself seems altogether unfamiliar with the term 3 Eyed Crow. Likely because he never used it.. because he's just not the 3 Eyed Crow.

Bloodraven DOES call himself "The Last Greenseer" which is a really strange thing to call yourself, if you KNOW you have a student coming, which is something Bloodraven knew for a LONG time. Why would he call himself The Last Greenseer, if he knew Bran was coming to be his successor (not to mention Jojen coming with him, was also a Greenseer). Another simple answer- because Bloodraven knows that Bran is not his successor; Bran is his master. Bloodraven was simply the last in a LONG line of people to have been used/manipulated/communicated with/skinchanged into by our Brandon Stark, before he solidified himself as the 3 Eyed Crow in the actual timeline.

Not sure why I got into all that... I guess I have to cleanse myself a bit, after the show just failed to get into anything remotely interesting surrounding Bran. Just leaving his time travel and all-seeing nature as a useless plot point that only what... exposed Littlefinger?
