    It's too bad. I'll continue without it then. I didn't know the specific thread, thank you.

    Did Lord Beron Stark died in 212 AC ? Hi everyone, I'm currently working on calculating the years of births and deaths for the members of House Stark. If I could confirmed Beron's death in 212 AC, it would give me more information to work on. In The Mystery Knight (which takes place in 212 AC), Beron is said to gather swords to fight the Ironborn. But when Dunk and Egg will arrive in Winterfell at the beginning of D&E 4, Beron will be dying from a mortally wound he took fighting the Ironborn. I don't know how much time Dunk and Egg will take to go from Whitewalls to Winterfell but I'm guessing they will probably arrive in late 212 AC and witness Beron's death and burial. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi everyone, Earlier this month @Gonzalo added the option "issue" to the character infoboxes. I desire to do the same with an option called “betrothed” for betrothals. I started to do it when @Rhaenys_Targaryen pointed out to me I should ask you opinions first. If my felow editors don’t approve, I’ll delete the edits I already did (sorry for not thinking of asking first). Obviously, I intend to only edit the official betrothals in the character infoboxes, not the ones mentioned as a possibility. For example, Brandon Stark & Catelyn Tully, Daryn Hornwood & Alys Karstark or Beric Dondarrion & Allyria Dayne are official betrothals unlike Brynden Tully & Bethany Redwyne or Daven Lannister & Desmera Redwyne. I don't know if pointed out the betrothals that successfully turned into a marriage is really necessary. However, those which didn't succed for a reason or an other (one of the betrothed died prematurely, the betrothal is annulled, ...) could be interesting. Examples: Joffrey Baratheon & Sansa Stark, Viserys Targaryen & Arianne Martell, Robert Baratheon & Lyanna Stark, Theomore Manderly & Viserra Targaryen, ... So what do you think?

    There are several terms in the books to describe a noble woman's entourage : lady-in-waiting, companion and handmaid. Are these terms equivalent ?

    No really. It's just an idea I had while editing some pages and seeing several examples of characters and ships named after other people. I guess it would be a compilation.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Personally I prefer family tree rather than text because I'm more a visual type of person. I had the idea of creating a wiki page about all the namesakes in ASOIAF but I'm not sure if I grasp this concept correctly (English is not my first language). From what I understand, George used it for two different meaning: * Meaning 1: Someone or something (generally ships) who is specifically named after someone else. * Meaning 2: Two characters who share the same first name. Exemples 1) In ASOS, Catelyn III: We learn that Lord Rickard Karstark was named after Lord Rickard Stark. -> Meaning 1 2) In ADWD The Turncloak: When Theon is in the crypt in Winterfell and sees the statue of King Theon "The Hungry Wolf" Stark, Theon thinks of him as his namesake. -> Meaning 2, I don't think Balon Greyjoy named his son specifically after a Stark King, they just happen to have the same first name. So my question is this: Are "named after" and "namesake" interchangeable ? Thank you.

    Hey guys, I was wondering how to best present the conflicts during Aegon III's regency. Should we create a template with all them like for the Dance ? Or shoud we simply add them on the page about the regency ? Off the top of my head, these conflicts are: * The failed attack on Harrenhal by Ser Regis Groves and Ser Damon Darry (132 AC) * Cregan Stark vs Sylas the Grim (133 AC) * Alyn Velaryon and the Velaryon fleet against the fleet of the Sealord of Braavos (133 AC) * Westerlands/Ironborn conflict (130-134 AC) * War of succession after the death of Lord Dalton Greyjoy (133-134 AC) * War of succession after the death of Lady Jeyne Arryn (134-135 AC) * The "Secret Siege" (135 AC)

    @Rhaenys_Targaryen For the Karstark family tree, I added "daughters" to Arnolf Karstark and changed from 3 to 6 grandsons because of this quote from ADWD: I'm new to the wiki editing and I don't know how to respond directly via the wiki yet, so Rhaenys I answer you here. (I hope this is ok)

    Hi, I started to edit some page on the Wiki for the first time today and I saw afterward that people changed it back to what it was before my edit. I'm wondering why ? For Example, @Vaith you deleted the family tree I added to Medrick Manderly. Can I know why ? Was my edit unnecessary ? Thanks for the clarification. Good day to all.

    Ok. I just wanted to mention it so when someone update the wiki page for Cregan Stark, he/she can change that as well. (I don't have access to the edit on the wiki otherwise I would have done it myself.)

    In the wiki page for Cregan Stark, it is mentioned "Cregan Stark was born in 108AC, the only son of Lord Rickon Stark and Lady Gilliane Glover." It should be corrected as "the eldest son of" or "the first son of" since Cregan had a younger brother who died in 119 AC.

    Most likely yes but unfortunately not confirmed.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    Are the 2 sons of Lord Rodrik Arryn the fathers of Lady Jeyne Arryn and Ser Arnold Arryn ? Lord Rodrik is still alive in 82 AC when his second wife, Daella Targaryen, dies in childbirth. In 97 AC, an unnamed Lord Arryn dies along side his sons and he is succedded by his daughter Jeyne Arryn (only 3 years old at the time). I'm guesing Rodrik dies in between 82 - 97, he is succedded by the oldest of his 2 sons (father of Jeyne), then his granddaughter becomes Lady of the Eyrie in 97 AC. Thus making Lady Jeyne Arryn, Ser Arnold Arryn, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (and her 2 full brothers) all first cousin.

    New Wiki Editors

    Hi everyone, I'm new here but a fan of the ASOIAF books for years. I like spending time on the wiki and learning more about the world GRRM has created. I decided to contribute with the editing process (typos, add missing little things here and there, ...) and I created an account in here. Unfortunately, when I tried to login from a Wiki page it didn't work (I tried several times after that). I can log in here without problem but when I go to the a Wiki page I'm not logged in. Am I doing something wrong ? Can somebody tell me what to do, please ? Thank you and good day to all, Thomaerys Velaryon

    [SPOILERS] Family trees and successions

    I'm a bit confused about House Darry during the Dance. * Lord Darry I : dies in 130 AC on the battlements of Castle Darry during Prince Aemond's attack of the castle. * Lady Darry : wife of Lord Darry I * Heir of Darry: heir of Lord Darry I who also dies on the battlements. * Younger children of Lord Darry I who survive Prince Aemond's attack with their mother. Then we have, * Lord Derrick Darry (Lord Darry II) who participated in the the Second Battle of Tumbleton. * Lord Roland Darry (Lord Darry III) who was slained by Lord Borros Baratheon in the Battle of the Kingsroad. Given that this battle occured after Tumbleton II, I'm guessing Lord Derrick died at Tumbleton and Roland became the third Lord Darry during the Dance. * Ser Damon Darry * Rosamund Darry (possibly one of the younger children of Lord Darry I) Do we have any information on how the latter Darrys relate to Lord Darry I ?

    Why wasn't Daeron I married to Daena?

    My bad. I thought I had solved the mystery but in my excitement I misread the passage. Thank you for the welcome Ran.

    Why wasn't Daeron I married to Daena?

    Guys, what about this passage from The World of Ice and Fire: King Daeron I didn't marry Daena because he wanted to marry the Sealord's sister and gain an alliance with Braavos against Dorne.
