It controls a strategic passage through the Purbeck Hills. If the Targaryen’s had not destroyed this they could have used it to prevent the north from marching south.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Lords

This is very historically embarrassing so the change then to the last prisoners. Victoria tower with the house of lords(Left). Elizabeth Tower with the house of commons (Right). Once Queen she installed big ben which is a bell so they could not put her back.

Bells ring from the church they are to bring attention to events. Make everyone go outside to see what is happening. Later to tell time.

Westminster has it’s own church (and pub).

This one is for ceremonies. The coronation of monarchs and where they are married and buried.

Targaryen’s build this for the Dragons (Because I said so)

Tower of London

She is also going to change the name from Kings landing to Dragons landing because she is the mother of dragons and a Queen. Roman empire turns it into Londonium (Land on rome) the Germany (Germanic goths) kills the romans and it becomes London.

Storms end

You can see why Stanis can’t stay here for winter. Doesn’t like fish. Really though he could have taken over Essos or another house. He goes to winterfel because that is where he is actually meant to be if he is not king.

Dragon Stone

Dragon Stone Dover Castle

The Baratheon’s had this house. I’m assuming the Targaryen’s took it over they ran north to their brother Ned then took over kings landing because they needed a house. These lot are not fighting for no reason only those with out food or homes fight they are going to die if they don’t.

Targaryen

They say they are French/Tudor but they are Welsh that had keep getting exiled to France. Coming back and killing everyone once they had a large enough army.

Their house is actually the Vale Robert gave it to his hand. Stanis had the job of protecting storms end so they could not go back.

The border has a lot of forts no wall thought so they did try to keep the dragons (Welsh sheep) out
