  1. The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Since Winterfell hasn't come under siege (yet?), it might be good to remove the battlebox altogether until further plot is revealed.
  2. The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Looks like it was added with this edit...
  3. How old is Braavos? When was the city founded?

    Additionally, it looks like our wiki took it from Wikipedia, which had it added without sourcing back in 2006.
  4. How old is Braavos? When was the city founded?

    The original entry from 2007 for the wiki's Braavos article stated (without a source) that the city "was instead founded 500 years before Aegon's Landing by refugees fleeing Valyrian expansion." We don't know where the original editor derived that information, but it was on the wiki until last year and so "800 years" may have inaccurately filtered into the community in that manner.
  5. How old is Braavos? When was the city founded?

    Are you able to duplicate the Google results?
  6. How old is Braavos? When was the city founded?

    Pages on westeros.org display various info and links on the left and right panels, including a selection of some recent forum discussion threads. For instance, this SSM which does not mention Braavos currently displays these forum links on the right side for me: The SSM search results mentioning "How old is Braavos" actually refer to this thread; the search engine finds SSM web pages mentioning Braavos even though that specific GRRM correspondence doesn't actually mention Braavos.
  7. Did Walder Frey even have a choice?

    Cersei ordered Loras to storm Dragonstone. Loras volunteers when Cersei refuses to allow Paxter Redwyne's ships to leave with Dragonstone and Storm's End still untaken.

    I'm not familiar with an earlier resource. Maybe @BryndenBFish knows?

  10. Did Walder Frey even have a choice?

    Genna was the only daughter of the Warden of the West, while Emmon was Walder's second son, behind Stevron, Walder's heir. Stevron went on to have three sons—Ryman, Jinglebell, and Walton— and Ryman then had three sons—Edwyn, Black Walder, and Petyr Pimple. It's possible Tywin may not have been as angered if Genna had instead been betrothed to Walder's first son, Stevron.

    Yep, I'll make the update.

  13. Project: Featured Article

    If "Bleeding Years' is only used by fans and we have the canon name of "Century of Blood", wouldn't it be best served with a simple redirect, like with the fan-only "Tourney of the Hand" redirecting to the canon "Hand's tourney"? "Purple Wedding" is another fan-creation, but that at least has been acknowledged by GRRM in interviews.
  14. Project: Featured Article

    Should "Bleeding Years" (mentioned in 2012) be removed from the intro of "Century of Blood", since it isn't used in TWOIAF (published in 2014)?
  15. The dead near Saltpans

    Manderlys usually use the merman, but Wylis and Wyman are known to also use trident brooches.
