    Small Questions v. 10105

    Follow-up question: Does this impact the date of the founding of the Golden Company? Is this still 212 AC, or has thus subsequently been moved to 213 AC, in order to still take place one year after Daemon II's failed attempt to claim the throne?

    Thanks! Good to hear!

    Would it be possible to re-instate a link or button on the talk page of a page, so one can go back from the talk page to the page with the text?

    Yeah, the text imo indicates that the story takes place in 212 AC. There are several quotes stating that it has been 16 years since the rebellion ended: Sixteen years ago, a bastard son of King Aegon IV named Daemon Blackfyre had risen in revolt against his trueborn brother By that time Lord Peake and John the Fiddler and their party were no more than a plume of red dust in the distance. It was sixteen years ago. The Pretender died, and those who followed him were exiled or forgiven. Anyway, it has nought to do with me. "What, all of them?" Dunk shook his head. "If it was true, that was a long time ago. The Black Dragon's dead, and those who fought with him are fled or pardoned. And it's not true. Lord Butterwell's sons fought on both sides." "That makes him half a traitor, ser." "Sixteen years ago." As well, we are given the clue that TMK takes place early in the year, as Lord Frey tells us this: "Lady Butterwell, the maiden brick, my darling daughter. May the Mother make her fertile." Frey gave the girl a smile. "I shall want a grandson before the year is out. Twins would suit me even better, so churn the butter well tonight, my sweet." Unless he is expressing an unrealistic expectation here, or is overstating it, the impression is given that there are at least still 9 months left in the year. With the rebellion having ended sixteen years ago, and having ended in 196 AC (and late in the year, as the war began in 196 AC as well and lasted "night on a year"), "sixteen years ago" brings us to 212 AC. Although you could argue that someone might describe the timing of the war's end in early 213 AC as having been "sixteen years ago", at no point in 211 AC such a description should apply. And yet, TWOIAF places the story in 211 AC (specifically stating it), so that is the year we must currently place it in. Perhaps @Ran has had a chance to mention the issue to GRRM for newer TWOIAF prints?

    One more thing with regards to THK timeline. The year the story takes place is the same as the year the Great Spring Sickness began and Daeron II died. Dunk and Egg were in Dorne at the time, so THK must have taken place before the start of the sickness in order for them to have travelled from Ashford to Dorne.

    Not to my knowledge. It would be difficult to do such a thing for F&B, as the only thing we can reasonably say about some events is whether they occurred early in the year, mid-year, or late in the year (perhaps for the Dance a more detailed timeline could be drafted, and it's an idea I've been having for a while, especially now that F&B gives us more detailed information - Although sadly the text also contains some contradicting errors, IIRC from the errata thread). For Dunk & Egg, the stories last only a few days, and placing them exactly in the year is impossible. What we do know, is this: THK takes place in 209 AC, TSS and TMK in 211 AC. In TSS, Dunk states that it has been two years since Arlan has died, and "a good year and a half" since Aegon joined his service, despite these two events taking place shortly after each other. We can gather from that that THK and TSS take place within the span of 1,5-2 years after one another. As Dunk's wounds from TSS have healed by the time TMK takes place, we can gather that at least a few short months have passed, if not more. Which all slightly limits when every events could have taken place, but not by much.

    I'm not sure which thread you are talking about, but google is always a good friend in such situations! You could try that, just add the website name behind yous search terms. Additionally, you could ask your questions here, if there are specific questions regarding the timeline of the rebellion.

    This SSM [Note: Some time later, in separate correspondence, GRRM described Blackfyre as a hand-and-a-half sword rather than a greatsword.]

    I read this as a single day, similar to how Westerosi lords might organize a tourney to celebrate someone's birth, or a wedding, or something like that.

    We don't know either of their ages, so we really can't say. All we know about Mance, is that Jon, in his recollection, described him as "young" when they first met at some point between 283 and 288 AC. But what Jon considers (and more importantly, does not considers to be) young, we don't know. As Craster is described as "well into the winter of his days", he would be quite some years older than Mance. But if I had to guess, I would guess more than twelve years. But as I said, we have nothing definitive on either one of them. Why the specific twelve years?

    Most precise ASOIAF timeline v.3

    @zionius, both chapters have been added. Why Sansa V ACOK was missing I don't know, Jon VIII ADWD missing appears to have been an editor error from a while back. Please let me know if you spot any more mistakes!

    The name of the tree is "Targaryen tree Jaehaerys I", so I figured it was meant to depict Jaehaerys, his parents and siblings, and his children. Which is why I replaced the two girls with "issue". Aerea and Rhaella are still on the tree "Targaryen tree Aegon". If the preference is to have Aerea and Rhaella be placed back into "Targaryen tree Jaehaerys I", than just say so, and I'll put them back!

    Possibly, it indicates that Massey and Darklyn were never officially counted as KG. Possible, I guess, but not confirmed.

    Luwin told that to Jon, not Catelyn. And Catelyn believes that Jon was conceived after she had married Ned, during the year they had spend apart. There is nothing in that quote or any other as far as I am aware saying that she believed Jon looked older. Her "stink eye", imo, was annoyance about the fact that her husband's bastard child, fathered on a woman Ned loved fiercely according to her thoughts, bested the trueborn son she had given birth to. At least that is what Jon is associating it with: It was not Lord Eddard's face he saw floating before him, though; it was Lady Catelyn's. With her deep blue eyes and hard cold mouth, she looked a bit like Stannis. Iron, he thought, but brittle. She was looking at him the way she used to look at him at Winterfell, whenever he had bested Robb at swords or sums or most anything. Who are you? that look had always seemed to say. This is not your place. Why are you here?

    Off topic for this thread, so this question is not meant to start a discussion, but I'm just curious where this is stated? All I recall is Cat giving Jon a "look" whenever he was better than Robb at something.
