  1. Small Questions v. 10105

    The World of Ice and Fire provides such table, but if you don't have it, The Wiki of Ice and Fire provides such list as well: you can find it here, under section 'Targaryen Family Tree'. Here is a thread listing many known errors in The World of Ice and Fire: I'm certain similar threads about ASOIAF exist, but the only ones I found are in Polish, so that won't help you much. But googling or using the search option on this forum should bring something on this topic. And welcome to the forums Lady Cerwyn!
  2. I'm inclined to agree. They're probably reference to Norns. But also to Shakespeare's Weird Sisters/Wayward Sisters/Three Witches. But it doesn't really matter which one GRRM wants us to think about here - they are all connected with Trinity of Fate Gods/Goddesses, like Greek Moirai (Threads of Fate), Roman Parcae, Germanic Matres etc. But there's curious word choice in that passage: After all those mentions of The Faith of the Seven (Seven who are One) we get three beings that are one. That's a nod to The Holy Trinity, I think. And that tranquil pool is the Well of Urd. So, all of this tells us that weirwoods, weirnet and those who enter it (Garths) can be seen as gods, especially Gods of Fate.
  3. I guess that's why Ned thinks that Bran can become the 'pope': And, Pope Gregory VII's birth name was Hildebrand (that's the one who is famous for feud with Emperor Henry IV). BTW, pope Adrian IV's birth name was Nicolas Breakspear. Well, I guess that's where Baelor Breakspear comes from.
  4. Joyous Pascha, Happy Easter!

    Truly, He is Risen! Happy Easter
  5. I'll just point out that LF is a trickster god, like Loki, and Loki comes from word meaning 'to break'.
  6. The Grey King fought Garth the Greenhand

    Renly knows what's up - I owe someone a hat tip for this one, was it @Blue Tiger? I don't think I was the one to notice that passage... Maybe @ravenous reader?
  7. Did Rickon Stark try to make alliance with Tywin?

    What I don't understand is the wave of spam threads you unleash on the forum. All those things csn be just as well didcussed in Small Questions thread. And maybe read Wiki of Ice and Fire before starting a thread... 'Rickon Stark'
  8. Origin of Pycelle

    You started a thread on the very same topic less then two hours ago. Please stop spamming the forum, read the ruled or I shall report both your threads.
  9. The Grey King fought Garth the Greenhand

    In some versions of the legend, Merlin (his body or soul) ends up trapped in a tree...
  10. But it's noted that in Jesus' case it wasn't done. (Luke 23) And: (John 19)
  11. And keep in mind that those coins have faces of kings on them... And who's the most famous king nailed to a tree? Jesus Christ, and scholars often point out that symbolically this act merged them into one, with blood running down the wood. And what happens right after that? The earth darkens, Temple's courtain splits in two, earthquakes crack open the ground, rocks shake and shatter... And the dead rise... And after three hours Jesus dies and is pierced by spear, which was later called The Spear of Destiny or Holy Lance... We see similar story in ASOIAF, at least if we agree with @LmL's theory... Bloodstone Emperor (and according to legends this stone was created when drops of Christ's blood fell on Mt Calvary's rocks)... Azor Ahai... The Grey King... But their (or his, should it turn put they're the same guy) versions of the story are reversed and twisted... They're not saving the world, they just want power and wisdom for themselves...
  12. Cometary Questions: Re-examining the Red Comet

    From Wiktionary: Etymology From Old French comete (French: comète), from Latin cometes, from Ancient Greek κομήτης (komḗtēs, “longhaired”), referring to the tail of a comet, from κόμη (kómē, “hair”). Noun comet (plural comets) (astronomy) A celestial body consisting mainly of ice, dust and gas in a (usually very eccentric) orbit around the Sun and having a "tail" of matter blown back from it by the solar wind as it approaches the Sun. A celestial phenomenon with the appearance given by the orbiting celestial body. Any of several species of hummingbird found in the Andes. And: His hair had grown long while he was deep in his comet-dreams...
  13. Heresy 196 and a look at the Wall

    From Wikipedia: (1) Maybe something similar happened at The Wall, either literally or speaking in terms of symbolism?
  14. Why don't the Lannisters have a fleet?

    You were given numerous reasons why it's to necessary, yet you keep asking... why did you start a thread if nothing will change your opinion? We're dealing with wooden ships here, you'd have to repair them and they couldn't be used for more than 20-30 years. And if there's a need, you can relatively quickly build them... so why dump your money into the sea for nothing?
