She swounds to see them bleed.

Nice try, Kingy. Good attempt to create a counter narrative to the actual truth here. However, I suspect that the Queen has seen quite a bit of blood in her time. She was married to the man who sledded the pollacks (pole-axe) on the ice. She saw her son stab a man to death, the wound of which probably led to him bleeding out. While certainly she wasn’t happy about witnessing that slaying, she also didn’t seem particularly swoony around the blood. So – even before the Queen herself denies it, this explanation does not seem a likely one. I wonder if it feels insulting to the queen as well – like, not JUST – no, I was poisoned but also – I would NEVER faint at the sight of blood, how dare you!
