  1. Wow, I never noticed that v.15

    I imagine in a Samwell chapter in Oldtown, since he's the only POV there Though it is interesting to consider that it is Arya who introduced us to both the Ghost of the High Heart in the Riverlands and Bobono in Mercy, so, assuming that we'll meet or hear more about this third dwarf, if it won't be through Samwell's POV, my bet would be through Arya's POV, when she returns to Westeros

    Actually, the family trees in the world book list twins, and do not list Lyanna and Benjen as such, so I'd say that we do know for sure that they weren't twins.

    Do you know what that believe is based on?
  4. R+L=J v.163

    Interesting observation! But he didn't demand this.. House Stark still follows the old gods. Eddard had a small sept build for Catelyn, sure, and allows his children to worship the Seven as well, but as far as I recall, the only child who frequently does so is Sansa.

    This image titled "Reek ADWD", and depicts a man in chains. Based on the title of the image (specifically the "ADWD" part) and the fact that the Reek in the image in chained to a wall, I suspect that this image is depicting Theon as Reek during his captivity. If it is not Theon as Reek, then Ramsay disguised as Reek is imo the likeliest option, as Ramsay was imprisoned within Winterfell when pretending to be Reek. As far as we know, the original Reek has never been imprisoned. Does anyone have more information about this image? Because it is used as a picture in the infobox for the first Reek, and if we cannot be certain that the image is depicting the first Reek, it should not be used as it is being used currently.
  6. Order of Stark Kings incorrect

    No further opinions about this?
  7. Wow, I never noticed that v.15

    An attempt to assasinate Daenerys is made in every book in which she is a POV (and if you consider AFFC and ADWD to simply be one huge book split into two parts, in each book). AGOT - the wine seller with poison ACOK - the Sorrowful Man with a manticore ASOS - Mero, outside the walls of Meereen ADWD - the poisoned locusts

    I've only seen a first print, which contained the error. So I don't know whether it has been corrected in later prints or a digital version or not.

    It's a confirmed error, and should have been 283 AC instead.
  10. Where did the name Baratheon come from?

    Perhaps Baratheon was a Valyrian surname for bastards, but I personally don't think this is very likely, since Orys kept the name when he founded his own Great House. More likely, it was either a surname he had chosen for himself, or the surname he had received at birth (similar to Jacaerys Velaryon and his two younger siblings had "Velaryon" as their surname, despite the rumours of their illegitimacy). Important to remember is that the rumor concerning Orys was only that he was Aegon's halfbrother. His status as a bastard, as far as I know, was not part of the rumor, and if that is the case, the scenario similar to Jacaerys Velaryon is the unlikeliest of the two.
  11. Small Questions v. 10105

    I would say that her belief is accurate. She was there, and she would have known whether her wedding had taken place before or after the battle. I think the bolded sentence is ambiguous enough to allow for Catelyn's statement to be correct. The victory led to the possibility of the weddings, and so sealed the participation of the riverlands in the conflict. Nor was the Battle of the Bells was not the only time the Tully's participated in the war, and though they had helped rescue Robert, their further support had been necessary to win the war. In addition, the app (IIRC Rober Baratheon's entry) places Robert at the wedding, meaning it took place after the Bells. Which would also be most logical, as Robert was alone, wounded and being chased and in dire need of aid. It would be strange to organize a wedding and celebrate a feast in such a case, with Robert's life on the line.
  12. Small Questions v. 10105

    We can't be exactly sure. We know that the war ended in late 283 AC with the Sack, and the siege rather quickly after it. The war had begun in late 282 AC, after Aerys had executed Brandon and Rickard. Rickard had come to KL because Aerys had summoned him upon Brandon's arrest, and Brandon rode to KL after he had learned about Lyanna's abduction. But it is difficult to determine how much time actually passed between Lyanna disappearing, and the war starting. Rhaegar left Dragonstone and "took to the rode" in early 282 AC, and his journey would "ultimately" lead him back to the riverlands, which I interpret to suggest that there was some significant passage of time (i.e., it was not his first destination). Nonetheless, I do not doubt that Brandon learned about Lyanna's disappearance shortly after she actually disappeared, and that Rickard did not waste any time travelling to KL after Aerys summoned him (and he had already been on his way to Riverrun to begin with, so he did not need to come all the way from Winterfell). The time it took for them to travel to KL and be executed might have been some two months or so (the amount of time of a fortnight for the distance between KL and the ruby ford is rather consistently used, and Rickard was only summoned after Brandon's arrest, meaning he only went to KL after Brandon had arrived there). So my guess would be that Lyanna disappeared near the middle of the year 282 AC, give or take a month or two, after which some months (two, maybe three) passed between Brandon learning about it and the executions of both Starks and Aerys's summons. Given that the Siege of Storm's End ended in late 283 AC, it would be ~1,5 years between the two events, give or take.

    This quote from AGOT, Bran IV, though a story of Old Nan, also supports that the "Age of the Hundred Kingdoms" began before the Andals: "Now these were the days before the Andals came, and long before the women fled across the narrow sea from the cities of the Rhoyne, and the hundred kingdoms of those times were the kingdoms of the First Men, who had taken these lands from the children of the forest. Yet here and there in the fastness of the woods the children still lived in their wooden cities and hollow hills, and the faces in the trees kept watch. So as cold and death filled the earth, the last hero determined to seek out the children, in the hopes that their ancient magics could win back what the armies of men had lost. He set out into the dead lands with a sword, a horse, a dog, and a dozen companions. For years he searched, until he despaired of ever finding the children of the forest in their secret cities. One by one his friends died, and his horse, and finally even his dog, and his sword froze so hard the blade snapped when he tried to use it. And the Others smelled the hot blood in him, and came silent on his trail, stalking him with packs of pale white spiders big as hounds—" I'm not sure whether this image can be changed (copyright etc), but it is very much out of date. We can add a tag on the top of the image page, if that's possible, stating such, or simply remove the image all together, if it can't be fixed. It was used on only one page, and due to the fact that it is so very much out-of-date, as well as because I spotted a few smaller errors on it, I've removed it from that page for now in any case. Creating a completely new image (without portraits, considerig we don't have any portraits for quite a lot of the Targaryens on that tree) would be an additional option.

    If I'm not mistaken, that theory suggests that the lords of the Vale are aware of Sansa's true identity and are only pretending to believe she is LF's bastard daughter, and are plotting to take LF down using Sansa, with the support of Nestor Royce.
  15. Which seventy seven guests were at the Purple Wedding?

    There were a thousand guests at the wedding, that's the number Tyrion refers to. And come evenfall the feast would be held in the throne room; a thousand guests and seventy-seven courses, with singers and jugglers and mummers.
