  1. The texts of TWOIAF and F&B mention "Jaehaerys and Jaehaera", while the family trees in the books have Jaehaera to the left and Jaehaerys to the right (which might mean birth order or might be for better presentation with Jaehaera's marriage with Aegon III).

  3. Gregor attacks Roose's host as they try to cross the Trident, and Roose leaves Ronnel and Kyle to hold the northern shore: Gregor crosses the Trident after the Red Wedding: Jaime meets northern captives at Harrenhal while traveling toward Riverrun: Maybe these captives only include men taken during Gregor's attack on the Trident prior to the Red Wedding (since only Wylis is named), or maybe they include some of Ronnel and Kyle's men (if that force tried to hold the river against Gregor after the Red Wedding). Regarding the Twins:

  5. How about Day Month Year (6 August 1996)?
  6. Do we have a standard for real life date formatting? The article for AGOT mentions a publication date of "6 August 1996", ASOS has "August 8, 2000", AFFC has "October 17 2005", TWOIAF has "October 28th, 2014", TLOIAF has "30 October, 20120" in the infobox, etc. Since GRRM is American, my personal preference would be Month Day Year without the ordinal (August 6, 1996).
  7. I removed my addition, since there's indeed nothing concrete linking the two.
  8. Pindado's image of Doran and Arianne could be added to AFFC Chapter 2. Other images to consider for Doran which aren't used in other articles include: https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/File:Doran_Martell_Cristina_Vela.png https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/File:T_Jedruszek_Doran_M.jpg
  9. While Maege and Galbart are aware of Robb's intentions and can inform Howland, I would be surprised if either has a copy of the will.
  10. It should be rephrased. On the list of tourneys page, it is placed between 276-281.
  11. Most of the Redwyne fleet is now returning to the Reach, but some ships are probably still near Storm's End.
  12. I haven't found a clear statement either. Maybe it's an assumption based on Arya's descriptions? Ran doesn't have personal arms listed for Amory at the Citadel, just that House Lorch uses "A black manticore on white, beneath a crimson chief with three gold coins". https://www.westeros.org/Citadel/Heraldry/Other/2/ https://www.westeros.org/Citadel/Heraldry/Houses/6/
  13. I updated the two articles. Earl Harlaw is one of Asha's fighters, at least, so House Harlaw could be included for Deepwood.
  14. I would suggest the removal of all those houses from the infobox, since all Balon says is "you shall take thirty longships of picked men".
  15. That's my interpretation of the text as well.
  16. What makes it difficult is that some of the ancient history is contradictory. Luwin and Yandel agree that the Pact separated the Dawn Age from the Age of Heroes. Yandel writes that House Stark have been in Winterfell since the Dawn Age, and mentions the Long Night. According to Jon, however, Bran the Builder was from the Age of Heroes. Yandel also writes that Bran the Builder is connected with legends from the Age of Heroes. Yandel's chapter for the Long Night (after which Bran supposedly built Winterfell and the Wall) is placed after the chapter for the Age of Heroes. So, should the section on Winterfell instead have: "The greatest castle of the North is Winterfell, the seat of the Starks since the Dawn Age Age of Heroes"?
  17. I don't see the thread for app corrections in the TWOIAF subforum anymore, but the actor for Mord is listed in his app entry as Ciaran Birmingham instead of Ciaran Bermingham.
  18. While it hypothetically could be different Lords Staunton, GRRM's phrasing in those chapters suggest to me that it is the same individual (who is unfortunately not given a first name). We could always add a disclaimer, of course.
  19. The maps within TLOIAF are inconsistent. "The West" places Godsgrace on the southern shore of the eastern Vaith, just west of its juncture with the Scourge to form the Greenblood. "The Known World" and "Journeys" place an unlabeled castle (presumably Godsgrace) between the Vaith and the Scourge. The more detailed "Westeros", however, places Godsgrace on the northeastern shore of the juncture. This latter location is also used in the map of Dorne in TWOIAF, as well as the maps of the south from AFFC & ADWD.
  20. When I try to see https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/File:Marc_Simonetti_rich_lands_and_a_keepII.jpg, it gives the following error message:
  21. We don't know if GRRM envisions the same for Westerosi clans, however.
  22. User Igra prestola once uploaded some images of a few locations: The Deepwood picture has no artist listed, and the wolfswood does not appear to be visible in the image. The Three Sisters picture has no artist listed, and appears to depict a mountainous, forested setting. The Runestone and Lannisport pictures have a krassenka mentioned in the file name. I found a blog page at https://krassenka.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/a-song-of-ice-and-fire/ with several fantasy pictures (included the aforementioned pictures associated with the Three Sisters, Runestone, and Lannisport), but none are attributed to artists. One of the pictures shown there is a depiction of the Shadow Tower by Franz Miklis, and another is a screenshot of the Eyrie from s1e5 of Game of Thrones. Any objections to the removal of these four images, since they are by unknown artists and do not seem to actually depict ASOIAF content?
  23. My suggestion would again be "struggle for power after Dalton Greyjoy's death", since "struggle for power" is used twice by GRRM for the article's subject matter. Additionally, The Vale article could thus be called "struggle for succession after Jeyne Arryn's death". Another alternative for the Iron Islands article could be "struggle for succession after Dalton Greyjoy's death" (since GRRM has used "struggle" three times for that topic).
  24. I still think we should defer to GRRM's phrasing for titles whenever possible if he hasn't given us a proper name. Twice Gyldayn uses "struggle for power" to reference the aftermath of Dalton's death, and GRRM hasn't used that phrase for any other event from what I can find. "Struggle for power following Dalton Greyjoy's death" would be more faithful to GRRM's phrasing, at least.
