CoTF, Bran the Builder, mostly FM stuff. But I'm not confident we'll have much of that, since it's written in ASoIaF times.

Don't recall the Greenfields having a seat named the Bower... ?

Oh, you mean more details about it in TWoIaF -- forgot we had that in there, and was thinking of just the books. :)

That's pretty much all the information you'll get about it, though.

The lands around Asshai, though I imagine GRRM will try to keep a mystery.

 

More info about the Blackfyre Rebellions and Egg's rule.

 

Any info about the old Kings of Winter would be appreciated.

Eggs rule above all,anything about summerhall, blackfrye rebellions, Jenny of oldstones, winter kings, the citadel, the building of the wall, age of heroes, the changing of the seasons, all the major houses illustrations, beyond the wall, I guess I want it all. Didn't have to write all of this I guess.

All of those locations we won't get to see.  Asshai, Yi Ti, Ibben.  I'd love to see a section on pre-doom Valyria as well.

 

And the missing Targ family tree info.  Who did Egg marry, etc.

Gods, yes. I want to know more about the secondary houses, *especially* Yronwood (,my favorite house, as well as Royce, Harlaw and Dondarrion. I love the Great Houses, but we've got lots of info on those ones and I'd honestly like to take a break from them and get to know more about the slightly less powerful ones.

Kind of minor, but I want to know generally which houses are the oldest in their respective region. Based on the Westerland reading, which says which houses were likely First men and which came during the Andal invasion, I think I may get my wish.

Yea, a lot more houses are of first men origin than I realised.

I'm gonna go full-bias here and say I really want stuff about Dorne. More stuff on its landscape, its warfare, Nymeria's initial arrival and her and the Rhoynar's interaction with the First Men and Andals already in Dorne, their resistance again the Dragonlords, their conflicts with the Reach and the Stormlands, the troubles between the Yronwoods and Martells, etc etc. Anything on the other houses of Dorne would be awesome.
