So, how does this work in Westeros jf you exclude the ironmen and Dorne? 1. Direct male descendants 2. Brothers and their male descendants What comes next and how do you order them? Daughters Male cousins Sisters Distant male relatives Children from wife's new husband? Just wondering because Littlefinger wants to marry Sansa off to Jon Arryn's sister's daughter's son (if I'm not mistaken). Would he have a strong enough claim or could some distant Arryn cousin come in and present his own claim and it would end in a might makes right scenario?
