    Gigantic AsoIaF Family Tree

    LINK FIX (I hope (let me know if not)): For PC: the original link works fine. For tablet: It's too big to display properly or something. Your options are... 1. Download the imgur app. It works then. 2. Use the dropbox link. It seems to display fine on tablet in the browser.

    Gigantic AsoIaF Family Tree

    I do wonder if it's a tablet issue. I'm on PC. Anyone else having trouble also on tablet? Or a 'tablet in conjunction with browser' issue? Can I ask, did you try downloading the image and viewing? Or the dropbox link? (This is very frustrating.)

    Here's a dropbox link. That any better?

    Gigantic AsoIaF Family Tree

    That's bizarre. It opens fine for me. It's zoomed out to fit the window because it's very big, so I have to click it to zoom in, if that helps. If your browser won't display it, maybe save and open in your preferred image viewing program. Or you can download from here and do the same. Is anyone else having this problem?
  5. So, I did a thing. A gigantic AsoIaF family tree thing. (There's also a key/legend/whatever. Feel free to ask if you're still confused.) (NOTE: Apparently the pic doesn't display well on in browsers on tablet, so either view with the imgur app, or use this dropbox link instead. I should hopefully work.) Yeah, I know it's been done before but... Some backstory: A while ago (last year? the year before?) I was mucking around with fictional family tree making. I started with Harry Potter, followed by P&P, and hobbits occupied me for a while. Then I decided to try something even more ambitious: AsoIaF. A little googling for picture references to get started (I was looking for the 'The World of Ice & Fire' appendix lineages) and I stumbled over El-Daddy's tree. (If you're interested, and you should be, google "El-Daddy's AsoIaF tree" and you'll probably find it. It's on this forum. Also reddit?) Anyway, it was basically exactly what I was going to do. Even with the same software. My interest sort of fizzled. It had already been done (and was awesome) so why bother. But time passed and I noted some things I'd do differently, more than a few people and families I'd add in. And my OCD decided it would be lovely if the individuals were all kinda evenly spaced? So yeah, I did the thing. I had mercy on myself and limited it a bit. I started with contemporary members of the Great Houses of each region of Westeros, plus the Targaryens. From there, I included anyone I could connect via known kinship, be it parent, child, sibling, cousin, spouse, or an non-married relationship if I thought it was significant enough. (Though do note that 'cousin' doesn't necessarily mean first cousin.) The 'Wiki of Ice and Fire' was an invaluable resource. Full credit goes to the aforementioned El-Daddy's tree for the idea of colour-coding individuals by region. Because visually it's really helpful, so I stole-- ahem, borrowed the idea. (I really hope they aren't mad. At that specifically, and my picking up the family tree idea in general.) I changed the Targaryens/Crownlands to purple though, because it was too similar to the Westerlands red. And for some reason my brain tells me purple is a royal colour? *shrugs* Also, since I stole purple away, there was only one option left for Essos and other foreigners... which is why Khal Drogo of all people is in baby pink. So yeah. What do you think? Feel free to let me know if you see any mistakes, be it in spelling, colour, family links, nicknames, people omitted... With a tree this big, human error has almost certainly entered into it somewhere. Probably multiple times. (Also, If you're a Chrome user and the pic's kinda... jagged? Try zooming out twice. It works for me.)

    How have you started reading the aSoIaF books?

    Probably I shouldn't admit this, (most people treat it as a dirty little secret), but for me it was fanfic that got me into the series. Some author I liked (can't remember who) wrote a crossover fic with a fandom I read. I took a chance, got hooked, read other crossovers, and eventually transitioned to pure GoT/ASoIaF fic. I loved it so much I went and bought the ebooks. This is actually how I get into a lot of books/shows/movies/etc. The one downside is that I was beyond spoilered plot-wise before I even read the first page of the proper books.
  7. If it says this somewhere, I'm fairly certain it isn't the prologue. I just finished rereading that, and no mention. Maybe later in the story? Especially since Ser Waymar had less than half a year's experience in the Night's Watch to Gared's forty. Either the meritocratic party line is empty rhetoric, or... Gared was super incompetent? It doesn't really jive.

    Okay, yeah, that makes sense.

    Mostly I was thinking that if the ~50 figure it usable for others, we could calculate a minimum birth year for pretty much any mother character whose youngest (or any, really) child has a birth date (specifically a year of birth, or a minimum year). For example: Lyarra Stark (Ned's mother). Her youngest, Benjen, was born in or after 267 AC. Taking 50, we could vaguely pinpoint her birth to in or after ~217 AC. Also, is that a go ahead for minimum marriage age at 12? Or does it only apply to conceptions and births? Because if it's usable as a marriage figure, there's a few characters who we could pin a date for, just by the fact that their spouse has a death date (or a maximum possible death date). For example: Robyn Ryswell married Jonnel 'One-Eye' Stark. He died between 157-209 AC, meaning they wed in 209 AC at latest. With a minimum marriage age of 12, Robyn would've been born in or before 197 AC.

    Hi, I'm new here. I just wanted to clarify some things before I tried adding stuff to the calculations pages. Rule #1 says 13 for a firstborn was chosen because of in-story marriage ages. Does this mean '13 at marriage' can be used for calculations? I can only find one entry (Lanna Lannister) that's used it. Also, is there a final world whether we're sticking with 13 or changing it to 12? Don't want to add anything if it'll be wrong shortly. (Also, if it is changing, should my former question be: can '12 at marriage' be used for calculations?) Finally, the Donella Hornwood entry uses ~50 as the limits of childbearing age. Can that figure be used in calculations for others, or is it just a one-off?
