  1. Can you tell me where that is stated in the books?
  2. Yes, with their 300 years of existence the Baratheons are one of the youngest houses in Westeros. The only time the Strongs might have been interesting enough for the Baratheons to intermarry with them was when they held Harrenhal, a period of around 40 years. So yeah, technically it might be possible. But then can also add the Crakehalls and Bulwers. And are the Kettleblacks actually a proper house?
  3. The Strongs seem to be an ancient house from the riverlands, the Baratheons are a rather new house from Dragonstone. I can not see the connection between them.
  4. In my opinion these are no inconsistencies. Yandel and Gyldayn are two different historians who could have used different sources. What Yandel finds interesting and noteworthy Gyldayn could consider unconvincing.
  5. Actually he never calls the match incestuous, but warns Aegon that the Faith would not look upon it with favour.
  6. And GRRM should consider the lack of a year 0 when it comes to Aegon's I age in 33 and 37 AC.
  7. @King Maegor 284 AC as date for the Sack of King's Landing is surely wrong. The appendix of A Game of Thrones states that Aerys was killed during the Sack in 283 AC. The Worldbook states that Rhaegar was killed at the Trident in 283 AC. Which is supported by Eddard's thought in 298 AC that Rhaegar died 15 years ago.
  8. Actually GRRM was just not confident with the Dayne words and that is why he told Elio and Linda to hold them back.
  9. It was a joke by Elio, and now you do not get it out of the community. I had some strange encounter with these Order of the Green Hand guys when they promoted their Old Nan is Rohanne Webber theory. I told them that the Brandon Stark Old Nan nursed was born in 227 AC the latest, but Rohanne disappeared in 230 AC. Their response was that GRRM was known to make mistakes and they did not trust his dates. And even before that I was kind of speechless when they did some calculation on the date of Brandon and LF's duel which took around ten minutes, and then they came to the conclusion that it took place in 283 AC. Now it takes 30 seconds to find out the fact that Brandon already died in 282 AC, but yeah... After these experiences I chose to ignore them.
  10. The first known Grand Maester is Gawen who is mentioned in 19 AC for the first time. He serves for Aenys as well and is killed by Maegor in 42 AC. I think that is all we know.
  11. I think there's a ton of new information, you just don't see it. Sorry, could not resist. My main problem is that it felt kind of static. There are always the same lords running through Westeros. We get the name of some lords fighting against Maegor, we learn that he punished them by executing them or stripping them of their lands, and two pages later the same lords appear running through Westeros again. GRRM should have included some houses that really died out.
  12. Yes, that was my assumption. I still think the tree I presented to you is the most plausible version so far. But I guess we will be smarter after the release of Fire and Blood.
  13. Rhaena is Aethan's grandchild, is she not?
  14. Yes.
  15. He edited his post, so it is not there anymore. It was there before he realised that the Worldbook actually made a decision regarding Ceryse's father.
