Unsullied are castrated "root and stem", with all their parts removed. Maybe his pubic bone is his pretend penis..

Pretty sure he was using his tongue, not his public bone.

Cersei has bugged up in the past when she went for short term solutions rather than keeping the strategic picture in mind. Empowering the Sparrows...instantly deciding that Tyrion was responsible for Joffrey's murder...these things swam back around to take a bite out of her rear.

Giving Ellaria and the Snake Daughter horrible deaths would be her first instinct....but.

If those two die, then there is a complete power vacuum in Dorne. Ellaria killed her husband, the last of the true Martells. It was the rebellious snakes who made the alliance with Dany. Cersei could offer Ellaria a deal...pledge herself to the Lannisters and she will be allowed to return to Dorne. Then the Tyrells in The Reach would be sandwiched between two hostile, allied powers, and consequently neutralized.

Has this ever been established? I remember the question being asked, but not answered. I would think not having a penis would prove more difficult in their training than just having no balls.

She killed him because she thought he was too soft on the Lannisters. I don't think she would ever bend the knee to any Lannister. And I don't think Cersei would ever forgive her for killing her daughter.

That was Oberyn'd brother, not her husband I think. But either way it seems that her power grab left her as the ruler of Dorne, otherwise I'm not sure how she could commit their army. I guess another option for Cersei is to hold Ellaria's daughter as a hostage. I could see Ellaria not bending the knee if her daughter is dead but she might do it prevent her daughter from being killed.

In the books (and maybe in the show, not sure), it is mentioned that everything is removed--twigs & berries. Then they are burned as a sacrifice.

Why would not having a penis affect training?

I guess peeing.

But if you take the balls then there goes the production of testosterone. (the lion's share 95% of it is made in the testicles). Her unsully army would be pretty effeminate if their balls and lovetoy were cut off as children..
