Sartar is fundamentally anti-Lunar as his guardian spirit. If the Lunars wanted to create a powerful guardian for a new dynasty in Boldhome, they'd need to put their own hero on the throne. Maybe a son of Jar-Eel would be appropriate in a few years....

Personally I think the Tarshites plan to marry Temertain to Estal Donge, thereby him and his heirs within the house of Phoronestes. I don't think the Heartland Lunars care at all what happens to Sartar politically (entrusting that responsibility to the Lunar Governor-General of Dragon Pass).
