    Someone posted that recently in a thread called something like "LF Channeling GRRM?" It's a nice theory, though.

    Nice catch. I looked at Lancaster and thought of the similarity with "Lannister" and the location to the west, but didnt think further of it. York/Stark is also a bit similar. Interesting to note: There is an area to the north in England called Northumberland.

    I always found Westeros to be somewhat similar in shape to Great Britain. Also, there is a wall in northern England called "Hadrian's wall", built by the romans for unknown purposes apparently. The text says the economic viability of constructing and constantly manning a 72 mile long boundary along a sparsely populated border to stop small-scale raiding is dubious. Which is similar to something I believe Lord Commander Mormont says "You don't build a wall 700 feet high to keep out raiders." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadrian%27s_Wall Westeros being England would further support the theory about the english king reference with Aegon the Conqueror.
