Renly Baratheon - A Wiki of Ice and Fire

Martin , and its television adaptation Game of Thrones. He served as master of laws in his eldest brother's small council, before crowning himself king in the wake of Robert's death with the support of the Reach and the Stormlands , an act that helps kick off the War of Five Kings. This brings him into conflict with his older brother Stannis, whose claim is greater. Renly's homosexual relationship with Loras Tyrell is alluded to in the books and is made clearly evident in the television show. Both men are among Martin's most prominent LGBTQ characters, although Renly and Loras' adapted relationship and the show's portrayal of the latter has received mixed criticism. He is thought to look extremely similar to his older brother Robert, albeit smaller and slimmer, inheriting the Baratheon height and long black hair. Although he is well-liked and charismatic, many powerful lords at court secretly consider him to be vain and frivolous.

As I don't have the time to look through all the forums and search didn't come up with anything good, I'll just go ahead and start a whole topic about it. In the TV series Loras and Renly are very explicitly gay and it affect the course of the story a lot. I started reading the books after the series and now I think this was never in the books. Was it hinted anywhere that both or any of them are homosexual? Or hinted that they are not?

Renly is described as a powerful man [4] who is lean and lithe. Renly's thick [9] hair is described as black as jet [4] and coal. Renly has been described as having laughing green eyes which match his armor, [4] as well as deep blue eyes [5] which resemble those of Robert. Martin reconciled the difference by suggesting Renly has blue-green eyes which change color depending on what he wears. Renly is a charismatic man, winning friends easily, but he also strikes some people as frivolous.

Warning: There are spoilers ahead if you are not caught up with "Game of Thrones. But there's one change from the text which has increasingly confused fans of the beloved book series this season. Loras was very subtly alluded to as being gay in the book series, but it was so quietly done that George R. Martin had to confirm the speculation. On the HBO adaptation, Loras' homosexuality is his most obvious trait. Loras, stunned with disbelief as the Faith Militant arrest him hbogo.

There is plenty of bloody, ruthless violence in George RR Martin's novels, and lots and lots of sex — but why is there more explicit gay and bisexual sex on display in the Game of Thrones TV adaptation than in his books? The question was asked as Martin addressed an audience at the Edinburgh international book festival on Monday night — why do his A Song of Ice and Fire novels only hint at the subject? Martin, who has two more in the series to publish, said he would put it in if it lent itself to the plot. He said the books are narrated through his "viewpoint" characters, so he was more limited than the TV shows. You're seeing me from your viewpoint, you're not seeing what someone over here is seeing. Because none of the viewpoint characters are gay, there are no explicit gay sex scenes in the early books. It might.
