Belike, Aral goes down the drain. Anyway he would not have been married in the critical period and so unsuitable for Regent and given the circumstances he might not have done a good job if he did get it. Mayhap the Regency goes to someone who can't keep it and Barrayar goes down in perpetual civil war.
