    Hi, guys. Enjoying your return to podcasting for Season 4. Just had an answer to Don’s question about who, with Joffrey’s death, would be considered queen, Because the marriage between Joffrey and Margaery had not been consummated before Joff went all purple, it would not be considered fully valid, So Cersei would still be able to claim the position of queen regent until Tommen comes of age. For an example of all the contortions royals went through over the issue of consummation, you might look into the history of Henry VIII’s first marriage to Katherine of Aragon, who’d been previously married to his elder brother Arthur, who died at 15, six months after his wedding. There was a long, bizarre legal wrangle (with everyone weighing in from King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, to the Pope, to gentlemen of the King’s bedchamber, parsing what Arthur did or did not say on his wedding night) over whether or not Katherine was still a virgin, and if Henry could, in clear conscience, marry her as the new heir.
