From Robert Jordan's Official Blog on Dragonmount:

Sometimes even when you’ve fought your best….
Posted by Wilson on September 16th, 2007 in the Robert Jordan's Blog category
It is with great sadness that I tell you that the Dragon is gone. RJ left us today at 2:45 PM. He fought a valiant fight against this most horrid disease. In the end, he left peacefully and in no pain. In the years he had fought this, he taught me much about living and about facing death. He never waivered in his faith, nor questioned our God’s timing. I could not possibly be more proud of anyone. I am eternally grateful for the time that I had with him on this earth and look forward to our reunion, though as I told him this afternoon, not yet. I love you bubba.

Our beloved Harriet was at his side through the entire fight and to the end. The last words from his mouth were to tell her that he loved her.

Thank each and everyone of you for your prayers and support through this ordeal. He knew you were there. Harriet reminded him today that she was very proud of the many lives he had touched through his work. We’ve all felt the love that you’ve been sending my brother/cousin. Please keep it coming as our Harriet could use the support.

Jason will be posting funeral arrangements.

My sincerest thanks.

Peace and Light be with each of you,

Wilson
Brother/Cousin

Personally RIP Mr. Rigney if it wasn't for him I would never have been 'hooked' on fantasy and I would never have had my eyes opened to the wonderful world of the Wheel of Time and Prince of Nothing Series.

"Murderous Children" posted 24 September 2007 in The Great Ordeal [supposed]"Murderous Children" by Mysterious, Commoner

Overall I doubt there would be any significant difference between little Moenghus and Esmi's child(ren) ?? Though genetics may come into play we have already seen that Cnaiur's capabilities have been exceptional especially in the light that he has been essentially self taught. I also doubt there would be any significant differences between the children in the light that Moenghus Snr. trained Mathianet but was still forced to call Kellhus as he realised that his son was not up to the challenge.

Also on the question on equality between the sexes: Elizabeth of England ruled in an extremely patriarchial society before the invention of human rights even existed. There has also been various Female Leaders in Less developed nations e.g. Bangladesh, Pakistan etc. but there has not been a Female Leader in some of the most highly developed and liberal societies in the world e.g. France, USA, Australia etc.

So my conclusions are that it may not necessary for equality in society for there to be a female child to take the throne.
