    So Robert takes the throne in 283, Stannis builds a new fleet and takes Dragonstone in 284, and Robert grants castles to his brothers in 286/287 (if ACOK begins in 299)?

    Winterfell, the castle, questions about

    I couldn't find mention in either RPG. The Guardians of Order book says, "Up until a thousand years prior to the rule of Lord Eddard Stark, the Bolton family was a major antagonist of the Kings in the North. The Boltons were best known for their tendency to flay the flesh off their enemies and wear the skins as cloaks. Many a Stark's skin was worn by the lords of the Dreadfort before they bent the knee a thousand years ago. Since the Boltons swore fealty to House Stark, this practice has theoretically stopped, but it is said they still have a room in the Dreadfort where the skins of their enemies hang. The Lord of the Dreadfort during King Robert Baratheon's reign is Roose Bolton. His only surviving child is a bastard named Ramsay Snow." The Green Ronin campaign book says, "East of Winterfell and situated along the Weeping Water is the ancient Dreadfort, the fortress-castle of House Bolton. It's rumored the Dreadfort contains a room where they keep the skins of their enemies on display."

    Small Questions v. 10106

    AGOT has Jaime leading one army along the river road while Tywin and Kevan lead another army from the south (gold road?) toward the kingsroad and Harrenhal. After Jaime defeats Edmure, Tywin and Kevan begin subduing the castles of the river lords. Stone Hedge, Pinkmaiden, and Harrenhal are all south of the Red Fork. Jaime attributes the devastation in Blackwood Vale to his father. AFFC and ADWD don't indicate a location for Raventree in the riverlands. The Journeys map from TLOIAF shows Jaime as traveling north from Riverrun (to Raventree) and then east toward the Blue Fork (to Pennytree). If that is correct, then either Tywin/Kevan detoured north to personally subdue Raventree before arriving at the crossroads inn, or Tywin/Kevan remained south of the Red Fork and had smaller Lannister detachments travel north and capture Raventree in their name.

    "Under the Regents - The Hooded Hand", when Rhaena's future is discussed.
  7. FYI, Winterfell is believed to be older than the Wolf's Den. Winterfell was allegedly built by Bran the Builder, the founder of the Stark dynasty. One of his descendants, Jon Stark, built the Wolf's Den thousands of years ago. Around a thousand years ago (sources differ), the Starks granted the Wolf's Den to the Manderlys, who developed White Harbor around the castle.

    Would it make sense to mention each on the other's page? Something like: "Ser Gyles, better known as Gyles Greycloak, was a member of the Kingsguard. It is possible he was the same person as Ser Gyles Belgrave." "Ser Gyles Belgrave was a knight from House Belgrave and a member of Aegon II Targaryen's Kingsguard. It is possible he was the same person as the Kingsguard knight called Gyles Greycloak."
  10. There are other northern towns, but they haven't been named yet.

    AFFC Jaime II FAB Aftermath - The Hour of the Wolf @Ran, would it be safe to assume these are the same individuals so we can merge "Gyles" and "Gyles Belgrave"?

    Thanks! Do you think it would be better to have separate pages or one page listing the differences?

    Big Question regarding Inheritance

    Yandel considers the Baratheons to be a new dynasty ("Soon thereafter he ascended the Iron Throne himself as Robert I Baratheon, the progenitor of a glorious new dynasty"), and the AGOT Appendix calls the Targaryens "The Old Dynasty". Targaryen ancestry was used to support Robert's claim to the throne, of course.

    @Ran, just checking if you have any newer info regarding the Shetts. The Citadel's heraldry page lists House Shett of Gull Tower as "Three golden wings, bendwise, on checkered white and black". SSM from 2000 suggests the Shetts share control of Gulltown with the Graftons. The AFFC Appendix lists Damon Shett as the Knight of Gull Tower. TWOIAF confirms the Shetts controlled Gulltown prior to the Graftons. The Alayne sample, however, introduces Uther, the first Shett to appear in the story: "The pimply-ginger lad countered with nine white seagulls on a field of brown, which marked him for a Shett of Gulltown." The wiki currently assumes there are two branches, Gulltown and Gull Tower.
