  1. I think that Tywin being the youngest hand ever is a statement like Jaehaerys I being the oldest Targaryen king ever. There are a lot of chronicles about that kind of stuff, so it is rather easy to find out the truth. Robar could easily have been 25 or even older in 48 AC, while Valarr (if he actually was Hand) could have been around that age in 209 AC, as well. As you mentioned, about Viserys it says: Though he strove to give the realm peace and plenty in the wake of the Dance, Aegon III proved unwilling to court his own people, or his lords. His might have been a very different reign were it not for that one flaw in him—his coldness when it came to those he ruled. His brother, Prince Viserys - who in his last years served as his Hand - had the gift of charm, but he himself grew stern after his wife abandoned him and their children for her native Lys. I don't see how Viserys becoming Hand in 136 AC or even prior to 143 AC would work with this statement in mind. And Viserys did not need to be hand to help his brother dealing with the issues. At least he was the only person Aegon ever trusted.
  2. Cregan Stark: Was made Hand in 131 AC, and at that point he was at least 21 (because Tywin was 20 and the youngest Hand in the history of the Seven Kingdoms). So Cregan was born in 110 AC the latest.
  3. Sounds like a nice idea. The only known canon names are Lord Cregan Stark and Lord Roderick Dustin. Then there are an unnamed Lord Manderly and his sons Ser Medrick and Ser Torrhen. And that's it. So if you need some names, I would recommend the MUSH family trees. I guess they are as close as you can get to canon (same for other regions). Good luck.
  4. Isn't the calculation for Edric's date of birth rather clear? In 299 AC he is 12 years old (Appendix and Arya VIII of A Storm of Swords), in 300 AC he ist still 12 (Appendix of A Feast for Crows), which means he was born in 287 AC.
  5. Barristan's White Book entry says: Knighted in his 16th year by King Aegon V Targaryen, after performing great feats of prowess as a mystery knight in the winter tourney at King's Landing, defeating Prince Duncan the Small and Ser Duncan the Tall, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Have a look here, here and here. The potential problem is caused by Willam maybe not being old enough to have fathered a child (Brandon) in 213 AC (or whenever the story takes place). Have a look in that thread.
  6. I think it came from Elio in the first place. He mentioned that they got the Bolton and Dayne words from GRRM, but GRRM had not been confident with the Dayne ones. After that Elio made a joke about the words revealing too much. Apparently not everyone got it was meant as a joke, and it spread like wildfire.
  7. I'm not sure if we are an "official" Westeros.org wiki, but I guess it doesn't really matter anyway. We are a small but eager community, so feel free if you like to join or contribute.
  8. Thanks.
  9. Where is it stated that Olenna is the aunt of Paxter?
  10. Theon III Greyjoy There are some characters from the Iron Islands named Rodrik. There even was a Rodrik Arryn, so it seems to be a common name. Besides Maron Greyjoy we know three more Marons. One was from Dorne, two from the Iron Islands.
  11. Couldn't find any source mentioning that.
  12. This would be great. Thanks.
  13. At least in German heraldry that's the case, but I'm not sure about the blazoning in English.
  14. House Ironsmith: I think if a horseshoe points upwards, this needs to be mentioned. So if there is no specific mention, the horseshoe usually points downwards. But since the Citadel also shows them pointing upwards, this might be another situation where GRRM doesn't care for RL heraldry.
  15. In some cases menopause is part of the calculation, in other cases it's just added as a note. I think you should keep it consistent. Lyanna's entry states that she was born in 290 AC. Source is missing. Do we know the month in which Aegon V died? Otherwise Pycelle could also have been chosen in 258 AC. I think this would also effect the calculations of Kaeth, Merion, and Ellendor. And you could add the source A Game of Thrones, Chapter 25 for "a few short months".
