  1. Brandon the Builder. Supposedly he build the Wall, Winterfell, Storm's End and Hightower. Also it's likely that he was the Last Hero. So, his story, starting from his crusade with his 12 friends to find the Children, how they dealed with the Others, and why afterwards did he went on a building spree, also how did he build the Wall, the beginning of Night's Watch's creation, what kind of people were joining it then, and what is hidden under Winterfell.
  2. Jon isn't tall, or exceptionally strong, and he has zero tournament experience. In matters of stamina he has no chance against opponents such as Jaime, the Hound, the Mountain. Opponents such as Barristan Selmy or Oberyn Martell (both have many wins under their belt) have significally more experience. Also winning in tournament is not all about being good horserider, or being able to hit a moving target with a lance. In some tournaments, when the opponent falls off his horse, the combatants continue to fight, either on swords or using other weapon of their choice, like a warhammer or a mace. Now imagine Jon competing against someone like the Mountain. If he won't get killed by a lance's hit, then he will be defeated in a subsequent swordfight. Also tournament competitors could use underhanded methods, like Lancel did in the Hand's tourney (he brought a mare in heat, and the Mountain's stallion went crazy over her), or Uther Underleaf in Whitewalls' tournament (he hit Dunk's head, which is against the rules. Head strikes don't get penalties, but they also are not rewarded with poins. So there's no sense in aiming to strike the opponent in his head, unless the attacker's aim is to incapacitate the opponent. Which was Uther's intention in his joust against Dunk. He got paid to get rid of him). Jon wouldn't be able to win against opponents like that, against schemers. And because tournaments are a competitive professional sport with big money prizes, it attracts all sorts of people, either those that are exceptionally good in it and have a lot of experience, or those that are aiming to win using any methods. Jon has no chances against opponents from both of those categories. Thus professional competing in torunaments isn't for someone like him. He's not good enough for it, or not cunning enough.
  3. He showed his loyalty to his master - shadowbinder Larra Rogare. When Aegon and Viserys came out for a talk during the Secret Siege, it wasn't Aegon, it was Larra in shadow-glamour. It was Viserys and Larra, not Viserys and Aegon.
  4. With his education and level of fighting skills he could have became a hedge knight (if he accepted the Faith of 7), or a sellsword (either in 7K, or in Essos), or a scribe for hire (because not many people, besides highborn, could read or write, and when they need to, they have to ask for help from a local maester, who works for a local Lord. But if there is no maester, if their settlement isn't big, then they don't have a maester or a septon. So, if they have money, they can hire a traveling scribe, if someone like that will be passing near their settlement. Or they can send one of them into a bigger settlement, to bring from there someone who can read and write. Jon could have done something like this). Or he could have became a house guard for a minor Lord, or something like Brynden Tully was for Jon Arryn, some sort of "administrator". Eitherway he would have been a servant, either settled in someone else's household, or traveling as a hireling for people with money. He's not good enough to become a professional tourney knight. He's not smart enough to become some sort of official, like a councellor to some Lord, or what Littlefinger did for Jon Arryn at Gulltown's port. If he went to Essos, given time, ten or so years, he would have had his own sellsword's company. Because he has charisma and potential. Eventually he could have became someone like Tattered Prince. Some sort of Magister or Archon in Essos could have offered him to marry with their younger daughter, or something like that. He has potential to become the First Sword of Braavos. Or he could have defeated a Khal and became a Dothraki warlord. Considering that he's a warg, he could have went to Asshai to study more magic. Though none of it would have been "his cup of tea". Joining Night's Watch was his best choice. Because that way he stayed in 7K, and also it was more fitting to his personality.
  5. The poisoning was done by Larra and Viserys, and Aegon wasn't their target (they knew that Aegon doesn't eat sweets, and the poison was in apple tart). They wanted to get rid of Gaemon, as revenge to Aegon for making Viserys to send his dragon egg away to Dragonstone. Aegon took from Viserys something that was precious to him, thus Viserys retaliated by taking from Aegon his only friend. Thaddeus Rowan told the truth, Rogare-brothers paid him money for that poisoning, and they provided him with Tears of Lys. Though they were also set up by Larra. They were born by different mothers, and Larra's mother, Johanna Swann, hated Rogares. Because when she was captured by pirates and sold into slavery, Rogares bought her for their pleasure garden, and forced her to become a courtesan. And Viserys had a grudge against his brother, who abandoned him. So Larra and Viserys plotted together against Targaryens and Rogares. Unwin Peake, Thaddeus Rowan, and Rogare-brothers were scapegoats.
  6. The conspiracy against Rogares was orchestarted by Larra Rogare and her mother, Johanna Swann. Johanna was working as a courtesan in a pleasure house owned by Lysandro Rogare, The Perfumed Garden. That's why fAegon's mother, Septa Lemore/Jeyne Swann, is the Perfumed Seneschal. Johanna hired Faceless Men to kill Lysandro, Drazenko, and her other ex-clients (all those people that in F&B were mentioned dying under strange circumstances in Lys after Larra went to 7K). Johanna paid for FM's work from vaults of Rogare Bank. That's why all that gold disappeared after Lysandro's death.
  7. Because HE had only one sister left. "His brothers were there somewhere, and his sister, but he had lost their scent." - this is Ghost's dream, those are Ghost's two brothers, Summer and Shaggydog, and his sister - Arya's Nymeria. Jon dreamed Ghost's thoughts, about Ghost's siblings, not about Stark-children. ADWD, Jon I - "On the other side the wind was colder still, the wolf sensed. That was where his brother was, the grey brother who smelled of summer." - Ghost's other dream in which he felt Bran's Summer on the other side of The Wall.
  8. "The stableman gave him three gold pieces and the rest in silver" - The seller had only 3 golden coins, the rest of his money were in silver and copper, that's why only part of what he had to pay to Dunk he gave in dragons, and the rest he gave in whatever currency he had left. It was explained in the books that Robert was very generous with those prizes. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Currency#Examples_of_currency_rates Robert offered 20.000 to the runner-up in the joust in 298. In 212 at Whitewalls runner-up's prize money was 30 dragons. With yearly inflation of 6-8% in 298AC Whitewall's runner-up would have got 154-206 dragons. But that was a minor level tournament, not the Hand's Tournament hosted by a ridiculously generous King. Though Robert's generosity was selective, he was Ok with paying 90.000 dragons as a prize money for tournament, but was not OK with paying 1.000 for Nymeria's pelt. Because paying for Cersei's whims wouldn't have earned for him everyone's admiration and respect, unlike him giving a generous prize to tournament's champions. That gave him fame and favour. He was that kind of person, he wanted to be liked and admired, and was willing to pay for that a lot of money. So the prizes were a bit over the top. For example this - "In 120 AC Lord Corlys Velaryon offered a reward of 10,000 gold dragons to any man who could lead him to Ser Qarl Correy, who had killed Corlys's heir, Laenor Velaryon, in a quarrel." and this "King Maegor I Targaryen, during his war against the Faith of the Seven, paid one golden dragon for the head of any unrepentant Warrior's Son, and a silver stag for the scalp of a Poor Fellow." That was in 46 AC, and Maegor brought with him two thousand skulls from his campaign against the Faith back to KL. He paid for them 2.000 dragons. Edmure offered 1.000 for capturing Jaime, when he escaped from Riverrun. The ferry passage in 212 costed 3 pennies per person, and 10 for a horse, so it seems to be a generous tip that Cat gave 1 silver stag to people that ferried her to Riverrun (the passage in 298 would have costed 15-20 pennies). So it seems that only HT's prizes are a bit over the top, their prices for various goods and services are not high. Anguy just went on a spending binge, and got rid of his prize money ridiculously fast. If he wasn't such an idiot, then that amount of money could have lasted for a lifetime. Wrong. It's not easy to train a horse. Especially if it's a horse for riding in battles or jousts, not just for transportation/basic riding. A slaver isn't required to provide clothes for his merchandise, he can sell them in whatever clothes they were, when they got captured. Their new master will provide them with everything. Also a slaver can afford not to feed his slaves for several days, because they won't die from hunger after several days of not eating. Though a horse, if it won't be fed twice per day, will be seriously misbehaving, and during the trading process that sort of behaviour will negatively influence its price. Trading in slave market requires from a slaver lesser expenses than to trade horses. First the horse needs to be either captured in the grasslands (if it's a wild horse) and then "domesticated", or born and raised at a stable, and then after several years of feeding and growing it, trained, and only then sold. A horse have to be 3-4 years old, when you can begin saddle break it, teach it to carry a rider. You can't just place a saddle on back of a baby-horse, and expect that you will ride on it just like that. Thus selling horses takes more time and more resources than to sell slaves. So it's reasonable that a well trained horse costs more than a slave.
  9. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Currency#Values "Specific values of each of the coins have not yet been mentioned in any of the canon works of A Song of Ice and Fire. The semi-canon A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game by Green Ronin has placed the value of the coins as represented in the table". That's according to a roleplaying game, which has nothing to do with GRRM and his writing.
  10. Rosey is not a premium hooker. The kind of hooker that would have costed 1000$+ is Johanna Swann the Black Swan of Lys, or the Black Pearl of Braavos, or Saera Targaryen. Rosey's price as 100$ seems more reasonable. Ten thousands dollars as a ransom for a noble's son, and 100 thousands for Jaime seems reasonable, if we will keep in mind that GRRM was writing AGOT in 80s and 90s. The crown's debt of 600 millions $ would have been considered as a big enough by standards of 1990s. The Hand's tournament with prizes 4 and 1 million$ is also reasonable, based on prices in 90s. In 209 Dunk sold his horse for 7,5 dragons, with their level of inflation (based on what he said in The Mystery Knight, 6-8% per year), that horse in 300 would have costed 40-54 dragons, in dollars that would be 750$ in 209 and 4000-5.400$ in 300. Seems a reasonable price. Tyrion and Penny's starting price at a slave auction was 300 silvers. If silver coins in Essos are similar/equal to silver stags of 7K, then 300$ as a starting price for a pair of untrained ungifted slaves also seems reasonable. They were sold for 5000$. Jorah was sold for 300$. The price of horses is higher than the price of svales, which is also reasonable, because to raise a horse it costs money, while to catch and enslave someone will be less costly, or won't cost to a slaver nothing at all. To feed them for a few days between their capture and the sale wouldn't cost a lot, much lesser than to feed and train a horse for several years.
  11. AGOT, Ned III - " The queen raised her voice. "A hundred golden dragons to the man who brings me its skin!" "A costly pelt," Robert grumbled. "I want no part of this, woman. You can damn well buy your furs with Lannister gold." " For a Queen to offer something like 100$ for a direwolf's pelt would have been too cheap. So one dragon is most likely more than 1$. I doubt that Robert would have minded if Cersei offered to pay 1.000$. Though if it was something closer to 10.000$, then Robert's reaction and his comment that Cersei will have to pay for it from her own money, seems reasonable. Thus, 100 dragons = 10.000$. 1 golden dragon = 100$. 1 silver stag = 1$. 1 copper penny = 1c. Dunk's meal in 209 costed a bit less than 1stag-1$, in 300 it costed ~5-7$. For example, burger at McDonald's costed 21c in 1960, 75c in 1996 (when GRRM wrote AGOT), 2,64$ in 2018. In the real world price of burgers in span of 58 years rose in 12,5 times, while in ASOIAF's world prices in span of 91 years rose 5-7 times. So they have lower level of inflation than in the real world. Thus everything there costs lower than it would have costed in the real world. 40.000 dragons ~ 4 million $. Anguy's 10.000 is equal to 1 million $. And he spent that amount of money in less than one month.
  12. Whether 40 thousands dragons is a lot of money or not, I think it depends on who will be spending them and on what. If whoever won those money in tournament would have spent them moderately like Dunk, eating good but not fancy food, not spending money on whores, wine and gambling, then 40.000 would have lasted for a lifetime, even Anguy's 10.000 would have.
  13. From The Hedge Knight novel: "The lamb was as good as any he had ever eaten, and the duck was even better, cooked with cherries and lemons and not near as greasy as most. The innkeep brought buttered pease as well, and oaten bread still hot from her oven. This is what it means to be a knight, he told himself as he sucked the last bit of meat off the bone. Good food, and ale whenever I want it, and no one to clout me in the head. He had a second tankard of ale with the meal, a third to wash it down, and a fourth because there was no one to tell him he couldn't, and when he was done he paid the woman with a silver stag and still got back a fistful of coppers." He bought a big meal and four tankards of ale, and all of that costed less than one silver stag. There are copper pennies, silver stags, and golden dragons. 100 pennies - 1 stag, 100 stags - 1 dragon. "If it's not too rusted, I'll take it and armor you for six hundred." Dunk could beseech Pate to give him the armor on trust, but he knew what sort of answer that request would likely get. He had traveled with the old man long enough to learn that merchants were notoriously mistrustful of hedge knights, some of whom were little better than robbers. "I'll give you two silvers now, and the armor and the rest of the coin on the morrow." The armorer studied him a moment. "Two silvers buys you a day. After that, I sell me work to the next man." " Six hundred coppers is equal to six silver stags. ""I need armor for the tourney,"" "How much?" "Eight hundred stags, for I'm feeling kindly." - price of used armor - 8 golden dragons. Price of not very highbred but good horse - "Henly liked the look of Sweetfoot well enough until he heard Dunk wanted to sell her. Then all the stableman could see in her were faults. He offered three hundred silvers. Dunk said he must have three thousand. After much arguing and cursing, they settled at seven hundred fifty silver stags." - Horses are expensive. 750 silver stags - 3 golden dragons and 450 silver stags - "He could live a year on this much money" "The stableman gave him three gold pieces and the rest in silver. Dunk bit one of the gold coins and smiled. He had never tasted gold before, nor handled it. "Dragons," men called the coins, since they were stamped with the three-headed dragon of House Targaryen on one side. The other bore the likeness of the king. Two of the coins Henly gave him had King Daeron's face; the third was older, well worn, and showed a different man. His name was there under his head, but Dunk could not read the letters. Gold had been shaved off its edges too, he saw. He pointed this out to Henly, and loudly. The stableman grumbled, but handed over another few silvers and a fistful of coppers to make up the weight. Dunk handed a few of the coppers right back, and nodded at Sweetfoot. "That's for her," he said. "See that she has some Oats tonight. Aye, and an apple too." With the shield on his arm and the sack of old armor slung over his shoulder, Dunk set out on foot through the sunny streets of Ashford town. The heft of all that coin in his pouch made him feel queer; almost giddy on one hand, and anxious on the other. The old man had never trusted him with more than a coin or two at a time. He could live a year on this much money." From The Mystery Knight - a tent costed 1 silver stag - " "We have no coin for beds." "We have twenty-two pennies, three stars, one stag, and that old chipped garnet, ser." Dunk scratched at his ear. "I thought we had two silvers." "We did, until you bought the tent. Now we have the one." " Cost of transportation by a ferry across the lake - "The last time he had crossed the lake, the ferry cost only a few coppers, but that had been six years ago, or maybe seven. Everything had grown more costly since then." " "Do you know how much he asks?" "Three pennies for each of you, and ten for your horses." ""Last time I came this way, it was only two pennies, and six for horses." - in six years the price of passage for a passenger rose from 2 pennies to 3, and for horses from 6 to 10. If approximate inflation in span of 6 years is 40-50%, then the yearly inflation is 6-8%. Events in The Hedge Knight and The Mystery Knight were happening in 209-211, and current events in the main series are happening in 298-300, 87-91 years after events in D&E novels, so the kind of meal that Dunk ate in 209, in 300 would cost 5-7 silver stags, and a yearly amount of provisions (that in 209 would have costed 750 silvers) in 300 would cost 4095-5460 silver stags, or 40-54 golden dragons <- this would have been a price of Dunk's horse in 300 (in 209 he sold it for 7,5 golden dragons). Used armor in 209 costed 8 golden dragons, in 300 it would have costed 43-58 dragons. So yes 40 thousands golden dragons is a lot of money. For this amount of money in 300AC you can buy 1000 horses (though not anything fancy or highbreed), or a yearly food supply and lodging for 800 people, or to buy used armor for 650+ soldiers. Though this amount of money wouldn't be enough to build or to buy a castle, even if it will be a small castle. But it will be enough to build or buy a moderately sized furnished house, to hire several servants and houseguards, and you will still have enough money to feed all of them and your family for dozens of years. So, for a knight or a small lord, that's a lot of money.
  14. Thru Euron Greyjoy and Bloodraven. First of all, Quaithe is definitely Shiera Seastar. In ADWD Dany noticed that Quaithe's mask is made of starlight, and the stars in that "dream" were whispering in a woman's voice, and Dany recognized that voice as Quaithe, also because the voice was saying the same thing as Quaithe previously said to Dany when they met in flesh. In that dream in ADWD Dany was flying, same as in her fevered dream in AGOT, and in both dreams there were whispering and smiling stars. Now try to visualise what is going on here (skip the sex parts, GRRM used them to distract readers): "Drogo held her in strong arms, and his hand stroked her sex and opened her and woke that sweet wetness that was his alone, and the stars smiled down on them, stars in a daylight sky. "Home," she whispered as he entered her and filled her with his seed, but suddenly the stars were gone, and across the blue sky swept the great wings, and the world took flame." <- It's obvious that Drogo didn't had sex with Dany, because at that time he was half dead. So what Dany saw and what was actually happening are two different things. There was no stars in a daylight sky, because Dany's labour started during nighttime, and during daytime stars are not visible, also stars don't smile, and they don't whisper. So the stars, that Dany saw in that dream, was Quaithe, who was wearing her starlight mask. Then suddenly the stars were gone, and across the blue sky swept the great wings, and the world took flame <- the stars were gone because Quaithe took off her starlight red mask and her black hooded cape, and Dany saw that this person is a dragonseed, with Valyrian brand looks, that's why the visual of stars was replaced with "across the blue sky swept the great wings, and the world took flame" <- it's a metaphor for a dragonseed, big wings and fire. Next what Dany saw was a person with mismatched green-blue eyes, with a glass candle in her hands, and red-black clothes in traditional coloring of Targaryen court - "Ghosts lined the hallway, dressed in the faded raiment of kings. In their hands were swords of pale fire. They had hair of silver and hair of gold and hair of platinum white, and their eyes were opal and amethyst, tourmaline and jade. "Faster," they cried, "faster, faster." She raced, her feet melting the stone wherever they touched. "Faster!" the ghosts cried as one," <- the ghosts cried as one is a clue that it was ONE person, not many. Her clothes were "faded raiment of kings" not in a sense that she was wearing some rags, but in a sense that her clothes were red-black, traditional colors of Targaryen court, and Targaryens are a kings of the past, kings that are long gone, replaced by Baratheon-Lannisters with their black-gold and red-gold court attire. When Shiera Seastar was young, her hair was silver-gold, now when she is over 100 years old, her hair partially became platinum-white. She's alive and looks much younger than her actual age, because she's a user of blood magic, same as her mother, Serenei of Lys (who was actually Larra Rogare). Opal, amethyst, tourmaline and jade are blue-green gemstones. Most common colors of jade is green and blue. There are tourmalines of all sorts of coloring, including green and blue. And tourmalines have a peculiar quality - there is a bi-colored blue-green variety of them. Amethysts are purple colored gemstones, though they have a secondary hue, and it's either red or blue. And opal is a bi-colored stone with blue and green mixed together, like on this picture - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opal GRRM had specifically chosen those four gemstones to describe eye-color of those mysterious ghosts in Dany's fevered dream, because all four of those stones are either blue or green or bi-colored blue-green/gree-blue, and he wrote that those ghosts cried as one, because it was one person, one person with blue-green eyes in red-black clothes of Targaryen court, a Valyrian with silver-gold and platinum-white hair. And there was only one Targaryen with mismatched blue-green eyes, and it is Shiera Seastar. So Quaithe is Shiera Seastar, that's one of the reasons why "her mask is made of starlight". And she's a user of glass candles - "In their hands were swords of pale fire". Now in a sample chapter from TWOW we have this: "When he laughed, his face sloughed off, and the priest saw that it was not Urri but Euron, the smiling eye hidden. He showed the world his blood eye now, dark and terrible. Clad head to heel in scale as dark as onyx, he sat upon a mound of blackened skulls as dwarfs capered around his feet and a forest burned behind him. “The bleeding star bespoke the end,” he said to Aeron. “These are the last days, when the world shall be broken and remade. A new god shall be born from the graves and charnel pits.” Then Euron lifted a great horn to his lips and blew, and dragons and krakens and sphinxes came at his command and bowed before him. “Kneel, brother,” the Crow’s Eye commanded. “I am your king, I am your god. Worship me, and I will raise you up to be my priest.” " "He saw his brother on the Iron Throne again, but Euron was no longer human. He seemed more squid than man, a monster fathered by a kraken of the deep, his face a mass of writhing tentacles. Beside him stood a shadow in woman’s form, long and tall and terrible, her hands alive with pale white fire." Shadow in woman's form - shadowbinder Quaithe, and she's holding glass candle in her hands, same as in AGOT in Dany's fevered dream. Euron has mismatched eyes, blue and black. His blue eye is a smiling eye, but his black eye for some reason is a blood eye (blood is red, not black), and he ususally keeps that eye covered. And his nickname is the Crow's Eye. And he knows a lot about magic, and also about the Long Night prophecy he has an insider information. And Quaithe warned Dany that in the house of Urrathon Nightwalker in Qarth glass candles are burning. This Urrathon guy is Euron. In the past history of Westeros there was Urrathon Goodbrother, his story with his nephew, Torgon Greyiron, repeats Euron's story with Theon Greyjoy. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Urrathon_IV_Goodbrother Thus, Euron is Quaithe's ex-apprentice (same as Mirri Maz Duur and maester Marwyn), she is the Three-Eyed Crow, and he learned magic from her, and thru his blood eye he is connected to her with blood magic (she can see what he sees with that eye), that's why his black eye is a "blood eye", and why his nickname is the Crow's Eye, and why he usually keeps that eye hiden (to prevent his ex-teacher from spying after him), and why Quaithe warned Dany against him/Urrathon - he used Quaithe, learned magic from her, and then betrayed her, and now is using his knowledge to become the victor in the Long Night, and to get the Iron Throne, and to become a god. Also, what happened to Bloodraven seems to be a parallel to what happened to wizard Merlin. Merlin's lover, Nimue, binded him with magic to a tree, and left him to die in a cave. Nimue was a water fairy, and Shiera is a star of the sea, and a sorceress, so she's also sort of like a water fairy. Furthremore, Merlin had two women that he loved, one of them was Nimue, and she fought off his advances and refused to have sex with him. And his other paramour was Morgan le Fay, she did had sex with him (they even had a child, if I'm not mistaken). Shiera allowed Bloodraven to get into her bed, but she refused (over 50 times) to marry with him. So Shiera is a mix of Morgan and Nimue. "Mor" in Morgan's name from Old Welsh means "the sea", similar to Shiera's Sea Star name. Also Morgan is associated with a character from Welsh and Irish mythology - Morrigan. This Morrigan is a queen of phantoms (phantoms are shadows), and she was able to transform into a crow. A shadow-queen, with a sea-themed name, whose avatar is a crow, and whose lover was a wizard binded to a magic tree - doesn't it sounds familiar? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgan_le_Fay#Etymology_and_origins https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_of_the_Lake#In_Le_Morte_d'Arthur https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Morrígan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badb And GRRM is aware of those myths and legends, because there's a House Morrigen in his books, and their castle is called the Crow's Nest. https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/House_Morrigen https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Crow's_Nest Thus, the Three-Eyed Crow is Quaithe, also she is Shiera Seastar, and her "third eye" is Euron Greyjoy, nicknamed the Crow's Eye.
  15. Even though I am very interested in finding out what happened at Summerhall, if we will have only three more novels, then I would rather prefer them not to cover events at Summerhall. Because there are other ways in which we can find out what happened then. Shiera Seastar either was present at Summerhall during the burning, or she was somewhere away but she was observing thru glass candle what was happening. And because she is a character in the main series, Quaithe, GRRM can reveal thru her what happened then. Barristan Selmy also was there. Furthermore, Sam could find at the Citadel information about those events, for example something like a diary of Summerhall's maester, the one who was helping Rhaella during Rhaegar's birth, when the castle was burning. About the Peake Uprising, Aenys Blackfyre's execution and how Egg became the King and Bloodraven got sent to The Wall, we can find out from Bloodraven himself, if he will tell Bran what happened to him prior the Cave. I think that the Ghost of High Heart is Rohanne Webber-Lannister, and that Jenny of Oldstones was her daughter and Varys' mother. Rohanne and Dunk had a brief semi-relationship, and Brienne, who is Dunk's descendant, is now somewhere in that area where the Ghost resides. If they will meet, then the Ghost, who will know (because of her magical abilities) who Briennne is, will tell her a story how Prince Duncan the Small fell in love with Rohanne's Jenny, and how Duncan the Tall, Brienne's ancestor, burned to death trying to save them at Summerhall (both Duncans died, and Jenny got kidnapped by Blackfyres, because of her magic blood inherited from Rohanne). Varys and members of Golden Company can reveal motivations and causes of all Blackfyre Rebellions, so it will be a waste to depict those events in D&E novels. One novel, the next one, we already know what it will be about - Dunk and Egg at Winterfell, shortly after events depicted in the previous novel. I think that that's when Dunk will have a relationship with Old Nan, whom I think to be Alysanne Stark and Brienne's great great grandmother. So, there's only two novels left. Thus, if those events that I mentioned above (Egg becoming the King, Jenny, Summerhall) will be revealed thru some other sources, not thru D&E novels, then the two remaining novels I want to be about Dunk and Egg's first coming to Targaryen court, and about Dunk finding out that he's a Blackfyre. Second novel should cover Dunk's interactions with Targaryen courtiers, their reaction to him (that will be really entertaining ), Dunk's interactions with Daemon II Blackfyre (who's supposed to be there at court for the next five years after he got captured. He has a gift of foresight, he knows that Dunk will become a Kingsguard. Maybe he died because he found out that Dunk is his half-brother, so Shiera killed him to prevent him from revealing this information to Dunk), interactions between Bloodraven and Shiera Seastar, Dunk getting into troubles and Egg saving his neck. And the third novel should reveal how did Daemon II died and the Third Rebellion started. Dunk and Egg took active part in the battle of that Rebellion. That's when Blackfyre-sword disappeared. I think that when Bittersteel was seized in that battle and then sent to The Wall, Dunk was escorting him there, and the sword was also there. I think that the piece of chipped garnet that Dunk has, is a stone from Blackfyre's pommel, and that by that stone Bittesteel will recognize that Dunk is Daemon I's lost child. I think that Dunk's parents is Daemon Blackfyre and Daenerys Targaryen, and that Dunk was born at Water Gardens in Dorne, and then sent to KL to Daemon. And Dunk was the real reason why Daemon rebelled against his brother King Daeron, because Daeron refused to legitimize Daemon's bastard born by Daenerys. It's likely that Bittersteel revealed to Dunk who he is, and then Dunk let him escape, and then became a Kingsguard, to abdicate from any ancestral rights that he could have had as a son of a Blackfyre. If, by giving Blackfyre-sword to Daemon, Aegon IV chose him as his heir (not his firstborn Daeron), and then, by giving to Duncan a piece of gemstone from that sword's pommel, Daemon had chosen Duncan as his heir, then Duncan is the rightful King of 7K, Daemon I and then Duncan, not Daeron, Maekar, Egg and the other Targaryens. Thus, if I can have only three D&E novels, then I want them to be about - 1. D&E at Winterfell, 2. D&E at Targaryen court, 3. Third Blackfyre Rebellion, the ending of it.
