    Studying Elizabethan England I think I might have stumbled upon one that haven't been spotted to do with Ireland. The Battle of the Yellow Ford (1598): Such a big link to ASOIAF here!!!! Yellow ford = v. similar to green fork (ruby ford), blue fork and red fork On the wiki it says the battle took place near to the River Blackwater Battle started with an ambush from a wood a la Whispering Wood Also like Whispering Wood, the ambushing party won Irish Alliance vs English Crown = Northern men and Rivermen allied under Robb's rule vs Westeros Crown (Lannister) Both Yellow Ford and Whispering Wood marked an escalation in war

    I'm sure somebody must have noticed this before, but the two main rivers of Essos are called the Sarne and the Rhoyne. This is surely a tribute to the Siene and either the Rhine or the Rhone of Western Europe

    I think I might have found what the Red Wedding was a reference to. In the 16th Century France was split as protestant rebels (Huguenots) challenged the Catholic rulers. There was an attempt to make peace in 1572 as the King's Sister married a high ranking Huguenot (who went on to be Henry IV - unimportant). All seemed to be going well until a few days later, when a large amount of the protestants guests were murdered in the celebrations that were still going on. It was the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre

    I think that whenever Robb is mentions it means the previous character mentioned held allegiance to Robb, like how Benjen and Stonesnake have the Night Watch. Hope this helps
