Viserys Targaryen: Will I be remembered as a good king, Lyonel?
Lyonel Strong: Your Grace?
Viserys Targaryen: What will they say of me when the histories are written? I have neither fought nor conquered, nor suffered any great defeat.
Lyonel Strong: Some might call that good fortune.
Viserys Targaryen: It hardly makes a good song, does it? To be sung at feasts in a hundred years... five hundred.
Lyonel Strong: You have carried King Jaehaerys's legacy. And kept the realm strong. Is it not better to live in peace than to have songs sung after you are dead?
