No disrespect David but I find your comment to be ridiculous. Cleary mythology plays a large in this story. Whether GRR Martin is writing with particular myths in mind is debatable. Most will be aware of the Hamlet/Lion King connection and The Odyssey/Oh Brother where art thou one.
The idea that old stories are reworked is nothing revolutionary. My guess is that you are put off by anything relating to Velikovsky, I get that. My post was not an effort to validate his theories. Just pointing out some interesting comparisons.
