On House Dayne/Appearence there is this (I bolded): "Despite their purple eyes, according to George R.R. Martin, the Daynes are not of Valyrian descent".

I checked the reference (a chat log), and notice that Ran asked about Ashara's violet eyes and George answered based on that ("[...] As for the violet eyes . . .look, Elizabeth Taylor has violet eyes, and she's not of Valyrian descent [...]").

So, wouldn't it be more accurate to say "Dispite their violet eyes [...]"?

The way it is allows us to conclude that purple eyes aren't indicative of Valyrian descent (which may or may not be the case, but do not seem to be what GRRM answered).

You mean Viserys II. Viserys I didn't do jack shit. Also, if the extended Westerlands writeup GRRM posted a while back is any indication, little of the cut material deals with trade, law, diplomacy, etc. Personally, I'm more interested in the 5K words cut from the Dothraki and Yi Ti sections of TWOIAF.

Blah, typo, I meant to write Viserys II.  

Yes, I also have not forgotten about that 5,000 words or so from the Dothraki and Yi Ti that got cut.  I'm not even sure how they'd release it.

From House Frey page:

I took that out.

"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"?

How about "Kings of the Three Sisters"?  That flows better while retaining ambiguity.

i agree with this i think monarch is to general since a prince can also be a monarch and they books explicitly says kings.
