    Okay, so I'm listening to the books on Audible and I realized something fun....but no idea if it's been brought up before.

    In book 1 Moraine tells the story of the fall of Manetheren, and mentions the King's full name as King Aemon al Caar al Thorin....Aemon son of Caar son of Thorin

    Following standard language degradation rules this could easily have ended up as Al'Thor by Tam's lifetime.
    If that's the case, Rand was raised by the King Aemon's descendant. Makes him of royal blood, raised by royal blood which was a fun thought so I figured I'd share

    This is brilliant, but I told you that before.

    This is a cool thought. I wish RJ was around to ask. He paid attention to all the little details so it’s entirely possible.
