Quote:If he neither knows nor suspects, then why does he tell Jon about Maester Aemon's turning down the crown?
Quote:He goes on to talk about how Robb is now king. But Jon rightly says that he always knew Robb would be lord. What difference does it make for Jon if Robb is king rather than just lord? How would it change Jon's fate any?
Quote:Do others believe it is plausible that Mormont tells him this just because Robb is king?
Quote:Why is he watching Jon so closely?

Quote:Furthermore, Robb was crowned precisely because there was no consensus on who else should be followed. They chose Robb because he had personally earned their respect. If it should come to a point where all the other Starks are gone and Robb is killed, why would his followers consider Jon as the king in the North? They wouldn't know him. So, even if all of the other Starks are dead, captured or missing, Robb legitimizes him and is then killed himself, making Jon heir, it still wouldn't give Jon the easy choice of becoming king. He would have to persuade Robb's followers that it made more sense to follow him than to simply swear fealty to whomever they thought at that point was the rightful (most powerful) king of the Seven Realms.
