After reading the 'The First Law' trilogy by Joe Abercrombie, I was left with some nagging questions.
When Bayaz' plan is revealed in 'The Last Argument of Kings'
at the table with Glokta, Bayaz explained that Yoru Sulfur killed prince Reynault so that Bayaz could make Jezal king to get the power and authority that he needed. If the king didn't die before the Gurkish invaded, Bayaz's plan would have failed.
Prince Ladisla would become king after his father had passed. Although
West killed prince Ladisla in the North, he was not influenced by Bayaz to do so. Bayaz had noone left in the North to order to kill prince Ladisla. So if West would have let Ladisla live, Bayaz's plan would again have failed.
Are those 2 deaths coincidences or somehow part of Bayaz's plan?
