Thanks for sharing. I'm sure we're all very interested to hear what he shares with us. On my part I can barely wait. /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I can't wait to read that. I wonder what he will read though. Something about the Conquest (Vale's conquest) probably

A detailed treatise on the different shades of eye colour of the various Targaryens, as well as a breakdown of exactly who was Rhaenys, who was Rhaenera, what was Visenya's personality like compared to Rhaela's and which one was desired by which of her brothers, the difference between Maegor, Maekar, Maegor II, Maekar II, Aegon, Aegar, Aenar, Aerys and Aemon.

This could cover about 5 pages of small font text.

To end it off, there will be two short sentences on the old Kings of Winter, basically saying that they lived in the North, but giving no further detail.

Yeah that's probably how it will get down. Still the Kings of Winter will get more than any Andal king. /sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

Any chance he says thing about the transition between Argilac and Orys Baratheon? The whole thing with Orys sweeping in the Strom King suit, even stealing his motto, without any mention of uprising or facing opponents of some sort, it just feel weird to me.

He married the daughter and only surviving heir of the last Stormking, so I guess his son decided to play his stormking's half and adopted his mother's house's motto and sigil, to remind his bannermen he was the last surviving descendant of the old stormkings.

Ran said a week or two back that we'd find out Argilac's house name, so it sounds like that this area will be covered in more detail.
