    Let's talk about some of the awful art on the wiki

    Who would have to be contacted for such permissions precisely, do you know?

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    @Ran Errata question: In TWOIAF, Laenor Velaryon is called "Prince Laenor" twice when discussing the Great Council of 101 AC in the chapter The Stormlands: House Baratheon, and Baela and Rhaena are described as "princess" once in The Targaryen Kings: Aegon III. This contradicts Gyldayn's work (and the remainder of Yandel's own work), in the sence that Laenor is otherwise always referred to as Ser, and Rhaena and Baela always as "Lady". Can we count the usage of "Prince" for Laenor and "princesses" for Baela and Rhaena as an errata? Do you know if this had been changed in later prints?

    Small Questions v. 10106

    Could someone help me find the quote that says that Aemon the Dragonknight took his vows of the KG shortly after Aegon and Naerys were wed? All I can find are the quotes that say Aemon was seventeen when he took his vows, and that Aegon and Naerys were wed in 153 AC (the year Aemon turned 17). Looking specifically for the "shorty after the wedding" quote. Help would be much appreciated!

    Nothing more recent as far as I am aware.

    All possible. However, if it was indeed a person from KL who provided Ned with the information, why did Ned first go to lift the siege of Storm's End, instead of sending another to do the task while he himself went to retrieve Lyanna? Entire threads can be filled with speculation about this

    We don't know. Readers have suggested Ethan Glover, originally a companion of Brandon but at the end of the war among Ned's companions. Other readers have suggested one or more of the loyalists at Storm's End provided Ned with the information when he came to lift the siege. It is also possible he heard rumours and managed to piece it together. Or someone else told him. At the moment, we can only speculate.

    Basilisk Isles have "mud-and-blood towns"

    TWOIAF provides this explanation: Unsurprisingly, Sothoryos is thinly peopled when compared to Westeros or Essos. A score of small trade towns cling to the northern coast—towns of mud and blood, as some say: wet and humid and full of misery, where adventurers, rogues, exiles, and whores from the Free Cities and the Seven Kingdoms come to make their fortunes. Could you tell me which page exactly you read this term on?

    Done, Falena's page, the House Stokeworth page, and the calculation have been adjusted

    It is always possible it is a bit of loose wording, of course, but if Daemon had been Lord at the time of Aenys's death, I would expect it to read "her lord brother's castle" or "her brother's castle" or something to that effect. So, I personally think that, until other confirmation, we should take it to mean Aethan was still alive. After all, that Alyssa, her brothers, and her cousins went to King's Landing to do homage and not Aethan does not have to mean Aethan had already died. He could have send his children to KL but stayed at home himself (for example because of his age or health). It is not stated anywhere? Unless we can get confirmation, it should not be there. Perhaps @Ran knows whether the six year old daughter of Lord Stokeworth is supposed to be a young Falena? As to the discrepancy between FaB and TWOIAF, "ten years his elder" might not have been precise (although I always assume it is until there is evidence to the contrary). And even so, being six in 130 AC and, 8 in 133 AC, and 24 in 159 AC is possible. It would only mean that, in the second two instances, her age is stated as it was at the time of the event (so she would still have to celebrate her nameday those years), which could again point to loose wording on Yandel's part ("ten years his elder"), while for Gyldayn it would only be a slight deviation from his usual writing style (he does not state the age a character would turn that year in all instances of his story, although the exception is usually limited to monarchs, as far as a quick analysis tells me. A mistake made in editing, clearly. Hmm.. while I agree it is highly likely that Quenton is Leowyn's son, I agree that there are too many other possibilities that we cannot exclude, as mentioned by @The Wondering Wolf. So I vote for not depicting them as father and son i the family tree, unless we can get some confirmation somewhere.

    The three Kingsguard were loyal to Rhaegar, not Aerys.

    Ok thanks! Sorry, I misread your post. Thank you for the clarification!

    The three Kingsguard were loyal to Rhaegar, not Aerys.

    But Lysa never gave birth, did she? The child was aborted using moon tea, Lysa tells us: I would have given you a son too, but they murdered him with moon tea, with tansy and mint and wormwood, a spoon of honey and a drop of pennyroyal. As Catelyn does not seem to have realized at the time that Lysa was pregnant, I would guess that she had not been all that far along, as she apparently hadn't been showing yet. At least not enough for Catelyn to notice. (Plus, Catelyn might have been preoccupied with her own grief over Brandon, I suppose, which couls have caused her to have been less perceptive than usual).

    No. We only know he was knighted at the age of seventeen, but not who had knighted him.

    We don't know, and as such, cannot use it for any calculations. With regards to the birth/death years project, we have this thread to discuss anything regarding the project figured you might like to know.

    We don't know where it came from. The dagger was, is Ned's mind, proof of the assasination attempt on Bran. So he kept it. He is last described as having it in Eddard 13, carrying it at his waist. Although not explicitly stated, Baelish later uses the dagger Ned carries at his waist to arrest him. Presumably, it is the Valyrian steel daggar, meaning Baelish likely has it now himself. The dagger is, as far as I am aware, not described as appearing anymore later on. Possibly Baelish still carries it around and uses it on a daily basis, perhaps he has it hidden away. But at least our most recent information tells us that most likely Baelish took possession of it during Ned's fall in KL.
