  1. Do you think the infobox should display it or the Stark sigil?
  2. The infobox for Jon Snow includes this bastard sigil for him. Has GRRM confirmed this? If not, the infobox should instead display the House Stark sigil, IMO. edit: Would Valyrian Steel count?
  3. "King of the Three Sisters" is an article about the monarchs from the islands, discussing the pirate kings of antiquity and the more recent Marla Sunderland. From what I can tell, GRRM has not used this as a proper title, however. We also don't know if the pirate kings ruled all of the Three Sisters, or if each island had its own king (like the ironborn rock and salt kings of old). Might it be better to move the article to "Sistermen monarchs"?
  4. I took that out.
  5. Corrected!
  6. Additionally,
  7. Sounds good to me as well.
  8. Arianne says he is attainted, according to AFFC The Soiled Knight. Aurane Waters has his eye on Dragonstone, according to AFFC Cersei IX.
  9. I updated both. Thanks!
  10. Closest I can find:
  11. @Ran, is it okay if I remove "Battle of the Redwyne Straits"? It is about a battle which has not yet occurred in the books, and its sourcing is from the transcription of the Balticon reading (which George objected to the recording of).
  12. Some of the infoboxes for Battle articles list Houses which possibly participated in a battle, along with Houses whose participation can be sourced. For instance, the "Battle of the Blackwater" mentions Houses Myatt (since the Myatts help escort Tywin's corpse back to the Rock in AFFC), Hayford (since they are in the crownlands), Leygood (since they are with Randyll Tarly in AFFC), and Penrose (since they are with Renly at Bitterbridge in ACOK). Regarding Bitterbridge, however, GRRM suggests here that while most of the men at Bitterbridge joined the Tyrell/Lannister army, some went home. House Peake is included among the Reach's men during the battle, but IIRC the Peakes haven't done anything so far in ASOIAF. There is fighting throughout central Westeros (almost as far north as near the Twins in early ACOK), so it's plausible some houses eventually rejoin Tywin or Randyll after regional campaigns or as reinforcements. To be on the safe side, I think it would be better to avoid assumptions and only list info which can be sourced.
  13. Do we have a source for Oberyn being a knight?
  14. The entry for Randyll Tarly states "Lord Randyll remains at Bitterbridge when Renly rides to Storm's End to treat with Stannis". Randyll does accompany Renly to SE, however.
  15. Since Jeyne leaves KL on a horse and Theon sees her in a wagon at Moat Cailin, she probably boards the wagon at the Twins. "Hanged, Ami. Your father was not a tapestry."
  16. Cantuse theorized a few years ago that it was transported to Oldtown by the Myraham. Robb gives them false documents for their risky mission, so I doubt it. GRRM indicates it is not set in stone.
  17. IIRC, only Walder's generation is known for being slow (although his father was also connected to the Second Blackfyre Rebellion). While the Tullys were neutral at the start of the Dance, Lord Forrest Frey enthusiastically supported Rhaenyra and died in her cause. Remember, Ned was still alive at when the alliance was negotiated, so Walder's daughter would have been marrying the heir to Winterfell. Robb was proclaimed King in the North later at Riverrun.
  18. Check the Qarth entry: "their ship is taken by Euron Greyjoy, who seizes their alleged dragon-binding horn".
  19. So Spake Martin: Walder probably would have eventually aligned with Tywin because of the changing conditions of war, but GRRM indicates that the violence of the Red Wedding is due to Robb marrying Jeyne. Walder might instead have advised Robb to surrender or tried to capture him for Tywin (like Catelyn was supposed to be taken prisoner during the Red Wedding). FYI, Beric dies three days after the Red Wedding, so that's being done by Lady Stoneheart.
  20. Full names would seem fine to me. Maybe "Fighting between Addam Marbrand's men and Walder Frey's"?
  21. In early ACOK Riverrun is concerned about being attacked by the separate armies of Stafford and Tywin. Catelyn thinks Renly could force Tywin to leave Harrenhal. Robb sends Theon to negotiate an alliance with Balon and ask for his fleet. Theon comes up with his own plan to attack Casterly Rock. Robb sends Catelyn to negotiate with Renly. Catelyn meets with Renly at Bitterbridge. Instead of attacking Tywin at Harrenhal, Robb heads west to deal with Stafford and leaves Edmure to hold Riverrun. The rivermen are under the impression they are guarding Robb's rear. Robb unexpectedly bypasses the Golden Tooth with Grey Wind's help and crushes Stafford at Oxcross. Word is sent to Riverrun. Robb raids the westerlands after defeating Stafford. Rivermen believe it is revenge for the Lannisters' earlier attacks on the riverlands. Renly dies unexpectedly. Thinking that Stannis will be preoccupied with a lengthy siege of Storm's End, Tywin departs Harrenhal to deal with Robb. Cortnay Penrose dies unexpectedly, allowing Stannis to take Storm's End much sooner than anyone expected. Riverrun has been in contact with Robb via captured Ashemark. Catelyn advises Edmure against fighting Tywin, suggesting he let the Lannisters pass peacefully. This surprises me, since Riverrun has already been besieged at the start of the war, and allowing Tywin to cross the Red Fork would more easily allow a second siege. I'm also surprised that Catelyn doesn't think of her son being outnumbered in enemy territory if the Lannisters return home. Besides guarding Robb's rear, Edmure also wants glory and vengeance against Tywin. The rivermen, who think Robb is just raiding, intend to fend off Tywin until Robb returns. Tywin can then be defeated by the combined northern/rivermen forces. Edmure defeats the Lannisters at the Red Fork but Robb is wounding while attacking the Crag. The Freys at the Crag and Riverrun angrily leave after Robb weds Jeyne Westerling. Catelyn wonders if Edmure is to blame. The Freys at Harrenhal remain with Roose Bolton, however. Robb and Brynden blame Edmure for ruining Robb's plan, which was unknown to the rivermen. GRRM is vague about when Robb and Brynden come up with the plan. Maybe Robb it planned before he left Riverrun in ACOK, but kept it a secret from Edmure (who would have to play a vital role in it), Theon, and Catelyn. Maybe Robb developed the plan while in the west after Renly's death, but it failed without new communication because the rivermen believed (rightly or wrongly) that they were supposed to protect Robb's smaller force from attack. Regarding Robb's statement that holding Riverrun meant that Edmure should have only defended the castle if it came under attack, there is also the example of Rodrik Cassel. Catelyn sends him back to Winterfell before she joins Robb at Moat Cailin. Rodrik departs Winterfell to deal with Ramsay in the Hornwood and Dagmer at Torrhen's Square. Robb and Catelyn do not speak of Rodrik disobeying orders, and upon hearing of Rodrik's death (attributed to Theon's men) Catelyn thinks of him as "That dear brave loyal old soul (ASOS Catelyn IV)". According to Daenerys's conversation with Xaro Xhoan Daxos, holding Meereen means controlling its hinterland, not just the the walled city.
  22. Regarding Jaime, how about "scheme to free Jaime Lannister"?
  23. A few options for Ned: "capture of Eddard Stark" "treason of Eddard Stark" "fall of Eddard Stark" "imprisonment of Eddard Stark" "Fall" might be best, since it is more neutral than the pro-Lannister "treason".
  24. That's how I pronounce it as well.
  25. These are my thoughts as well. I created an article for the ambush at the Wendwater.
