Incest - It's all relative.

Dating back to between 5,500 and 4,000 years ago, this was a pivotal stage in the region's history, as farming lifestyles gradually supplanted hunting, foraging, and fishing.  ... Similar arrangements were seen later among the Inca god-kings and Egyptian pharaohs, many of whom were inbred.

...So basically ancient inbreeding was a critical step in human beings switching over to modern civilization, featuring agriculture, ruling classes, private property, money, etc.

Why are all the beds in Casterly Rock so big?  They keep pushing two twins together to make a king.

Umm. You didn't make that up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cou​sin#A​dditional_terms even has a picture of exactly that situation. (Could also have a brother and sister marry a sister and brother...)

While electricity is nice, before then, I don't think slave based grain harvesting would be civilization.

No wonder white people kidnapped to native tribes rarely wanted to go back.  But there are 200 times more of ye.

I'm pretty sure warfare, which then required coin to pay soldiers, which required more land to harvest resources to make coin, which required more soliders to take said land, which required more coin, which required more land.....

Basically when populations got big and advanced enough to start raiding people that didn't look like you anymore.

Then you can enslave the prisoners to harvest crops for you, while inbreeding with your sister just like Royals pretty much always have.

I mean how the fark does inbreeding do all that?  farking Christ.

Cultures that are based on subsistence farming have small pools of genes. Film at 10.

In the Mabinogion, there is a story of a war between the Welsh and the Irish which leaves the Irish population so devastated that they have to repopulate by thirteen pregnant women, who each have sons who then have to impregnate each of the other mothers.
