    Planetos Timekeeping

    True but thats the only time schedule in hours in the books were we know of. so my best guess is that there are no 24 hour count schedule, but only the nature one.

    In the books they talk about hour of some animal for example "hour of the bat or the owl". I think thats a nature thing and came into modern world by the old gods and the children. I suppose that its every day the on the same hour. So maybe owl in the summer is at 00.00 and in spring it on 21.00. So i think there is a possibility that the hours are not always on the same earth-times, but appears just every day on a time during the day.

    Golden Company Exiles

    We allready see in Mereen that she is not fit to rule, but i can see a dance-like scenario, where she defeats or banish Aegon and sit the throne like Rhaenery as a bitter lady. Maybe she ends roughly the same way with dragon fire, maybe through Aemon (Jon).

    I am a believer that Aegon will first sit the throne before Daenaerys and in the end Aemon (Jon Snow) So it will end in tears.

    I think so, but giving ancient castles away will not be appreciated by all the lords of westeros. Its also the question if this are really exciled lords or people who uses these names or take advantage of those names. This can cost some big problems i think!

    Interesting, but the weather plays a very big role in population, but there are also very long summers. it works both ways!

    Yet another Demography Thread

    I agree with most what you are saying and the harsh climates and wars play a big part in these societies. I think between 294 AC and 300 AC could be a difference of 6 million over Westeros.

    I think its not right to compare it to US. George had midevil europe in mind and even the expansion of the roman empire. So you have to compare KL to London and london has 500.000 between 1350 and 1500, so in midevil europe. The size of armies and everything adds up to a european origin. if you know how many people live in the cities, you can guess how many will live in the rural areas and the whole of westeros. I think 60 million people is a better guess. The reach has an army of 100.000 and that is around 1%-1,5% of total population. So the reach has between 7 and 10 million people. This also depend on a lot of other factors like pre or post-war times.
  9. I have the book in dutch so maybe they translated it a bit wrong about twice as many as any other house. But still the Andal invasion seems not that long ago as they mention in the beginning.
  10. In the book its said there are 38 Greyiron kings that ruled after Andal Invasion and they are 2/3 of all kings so that makes it around 57. Can be 1 more 1 less. You make one fault: If king A is 20 he has a son of maybe 2, when the king is 40 and dies his son B would be king at 22. If B has a son with 22 and dies at 90. The son would be king at 68. SO you count the year of the lifespan of a king not the years he rules. But we both agree that with an invasion of 4000 years ago the avarage age of a king would be 70 and thats not possible, but 35 seems reasonable!! If it took a 1000 years to conquer the iron islands what seems strange(could be also not true) than they were 52 avarage. We allready know many king that got quit old and some died young not as teenager but young, so everything between 35 en 52 seems normal. If it was 4000 years it just seems too much of a stretch. But read first the episodes in the worldbook carefull about the Greyirons who came with the Andals!

    Heredity laws of westeros

    I agree with you, there is noway a high lord like the Arryns can be replaced by a Hardyng. Thos lords like Stark, Arryn and Lannister etc were the first every Lords of this much land.
  12. C "There is many evidence and quotes of george rr martin that the timeline is not the correct one. My own main evidence is the grey king in the world of ice and fire, who was the first high king of the iron island, after him 38 men of house greyiron ruled the iron islands till the Andals came and the half more of other houses, makes a total of 57. so before the Andals came 57 high kings were chosen in the kingsmood.When the greyking really lived 10.000 years ago, than those high kings lived inhumanly long. 2000/57 avarage of 35 years would be more logical. When the Andals came, the greyirons were extinct. If all the stories of the greyirons were 10.000 years ago, ther is now way we got so detailed information of them. There is more evidence, that the time line at least is much shorter. Durrandon had not lived for thousand of years, i think there is only one and that is the first. Durran and a first men warrior king that build a keep that later became storms, So also here the timeline is much shorter. The same with the other houses with a strange history if you put it in time perspective. But with the Iron Born the world of ice and fire give us more inside information in how many kings has ruled the islands. " This is what i wrote some months ago about the arriving of the Andals, sorry for my bad english.

    Its true that speaking out your grace is to show Dany she is queen, but she meant it it some sarcastic. That said its also a reference to king Robert in season 1 were Ned Stark sai the same line :" Winterfell is yours your grace". Also the arriving of Sandor and the Line of Jon "Where is Arya" is the same as Cats. So i think that was the most important reason. The problem i see with boats is that the food will be gone at one moment and the NK is not stupid to let his wights die on the coast he just wait. Yes Throughout history only Male Targaryans can sit the throne, thats decided in the great council. But its kinda stupid for the show, because Olenna Tyrell, Allyria Sand and Yaya Greyjoy all have been rulers of their regions, sow why suddenly is the kingship different. Even Cersei sits on the throne!

    Prince Nymor's letter (slight crackpot)

    Some people say that they give tge body of rhaenys back or give her a quick dead. If that was true aegon could have pick up his arms the very next week, so that is no reason for peace!
