What is a Lickspittle?
** A Lickspittle refers to someone who is subordinated to those who have power over them. Some synonyms for Lickspittle include words like Bootlicker, Fawner, Flunky, Suck-Up and Sycophant.
King Viserys uses the word during his passionate speech due to the offensive nature of what Prince Daemon said in the brothel, referring to the King’s dead baby as the heir for a day. The exact words of King Viserys in response to ruthless comment are the following:
My family has just been destroyed. But instead of being by my side or Rhaenyra, you chose to celebrate your own ascent! Laughing with your whores and your Lickspittles!
In this appointment, the meaning behind the king calling people in the brothel Lickspittles is that these people are only people who are admired to the alleged heir. Not everyone necessarily believes what Prince Daemon says, as evidenced by the fact that the words leaked. The people with whom the prince surrounded themselves only adulted and agreed with him because they are the subordinates of his.
