Oh I know, I had a friend in real life who shipped Wincest (Sam & Dean Winchester) so I understand its a fandom-only thing LOL. I myself, have just never been into it.
Don't get me wrong, I don't hold against this show either. I'm loving all the morally twisted (or in some cases absent) storylines, and this makes for some pretty juicy material that while I'm not a fan of incestuous relationships on tv, I'm intrigued to see where this one goes.
Whether in real life they had this relationship or not, historically for that time, it was not at all uncommon. Heck British royalty was completely inbred for several generations, so much so that they ended up passing down distinct physical mutations to their children, just so they could preserve the royal blood line. So it perfectly fitting for a show like this to explore the possibility.
