There is much to say about honour. There is much to say about duty. I, for one, believe in them both. You cannot do your duty without honour. You cannot have honour without duty. As Queen, I must serve my husband, the King in the best way possible. I must show him who he truly is and the power he truly has. I must not think about myself. It is most important that we show that our marriage is stable and loving. We are amiable enough with each other, but oftentimes, this is not enough.
Some people must think that my marriage with Renly is not pleasurable, but I think not for my own pleasure. Our marriage is important for the realm. He has the charm and kindness that a King should. He has armies behind him. We are a perfect match in that regard and my brother is so very fond of him. The marriage of House Tyrell and the House Baratheon is well-made. One cannot deny it. We are strong and virtuous. We have a quiet beauty in us and try to be peaceful always. We shall be kind to those who pledge their allegiance and treat everyone honourably. We shall stay strong.
I truly pity the House Stark and the misfortunes that have befell them. Eddard Stark was brutally murdered and I truly believe that the Lannisters must answer for their crimes. To me, Lord Stark was the definition of honour outside of my family. I harbour much admiration for his wife, the Lady Catelyn Stark. She is a strong woman and has gone through so much. The gods have been both cruel and kind. I do believe that our alliance shall be duly noted. I think it will favour the realm well.
I may be young and inexperienced, but I am intelligent. I care only for what is best for our families and the people. The Lannisters on the Iron Throne is not best for Westeros. I fear a great deal of what might happen. However, I shall stay forever faithful at Renly’s side. I will do his bidding as he wishes and serve him as his true wife should. We shall win this war.
