    so i couldent help but notice that ros the whore was killed (by joffrey)in a manor of fashion not unlike a real life mad king killed poor women and prostitutes.


    The mad king of of Denmark Christian VII of Denmark (1749-180 Also commenly known in Denmarkas: The man king, used to go into the night and find prostitutes and torture with maces and swords,mameing or killingthem in much the same manner.Doubtless there other real life mad kings who has inspiredGeorge R. R. Martin, but i remember reading about the mad kings killings of whores in history class, and thought it interesting to see this very acurately portrayed on game of thrones.
