    There's this from Nimble Dick. Not the most reliable of narrators, but he seems to know what he's talking about.

    Thanks @Lost Melnibonean and @zionius. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if this lordling plays into Tyrion's storyline in the future.

    Do we know who this river lord is from ACoK, Tyrion IV?

    Catelyn never actually sees any of the Frey girls when she treats with Walder Frey. When she returns to Robb, she tells him that he can pick whichever girl meets his fancy. After that, she doesn't return to the Twins until the Red Wedding.

    In AFFC, Jamie reflects that he was younger than Peck when Crakehall sent him to Riverrun to deliver a message, which was just a pretext to introduce him to Lysa. So both he and Lysa would have been around 14 or 15 years old. I don't think Lysa became pregnant until a couple of years later by which time Jamie was in the Kingsguard.

    There's this from ACOK Tyrion VI (Chapter 25) And then later in ACOK Tyrion VIII (Chapter 36).

    I have a question from the chapter where Theon and the Spearwives attempt to break Jeyne out of Winterfell (ADWD, Theon 1). I noticed that one of the (unseen) serving girls is named Maisie. Has GRRM ever outright stated that she was named for Maisie Williams? And, do we know if Jez was named after someone in real life?

    The only painter we meet that I can remember is the woman in Duskendale who repaints Brienne's shield. She also painted the doors of her home. She seems to be a commoner and not in service to any house. It's not mentioned if she does any other kind of paintings, e.g. oil on canvas. Aside from that, the painting in the locket that Renly shows to Ned is described as "a miniature painted in the vivid Myrish style." Maybe fine art painting is an activity that's primarily done by craftsmen from across the Narrow Sea, just like how the best glassblowers and armourers come from the Free Cities.

    In the real world, the British heir apparent is named the Prince of Wales. Also, the next-oldest brother of the prince is traditionally given the title of Duke of York.

    I think if It's a proxy for any sword, it would Oathkeeper. Aside from the fact that Brienne is a "just maid" herself, it's one of the few swords in the story for which we know it's entire history. After Twyin had it forged from Ice, he gave it to Jaime who never used it and instead passed it to Brienne. Brienne never wore the sword, but kept it hidden in her bedroll. She has taken it out to use just twice, once against Pyg and Timeon at The Whispers and once at the inn to kill Rorge. It suggests to me that there may yet be a third (and final?) time that Oathkeeper is used. No idea what it would be though. Any number of possibilities come to mind such as a dragon, or an Other, or even Lady Stoneheart? I do think it will be something epic.

    It's not clear that Falia is really an "acknowledged" bastard. It's more likely that her parentage is an open secret, like for example Mya Stone. Mya is baseborn and although she's apparently treated well, she's still just part of Nestor Royce's household at the Gates of the Moon with no special privileges or rights. If Hewitt impregnated a commoner in his household, it's not surprising that the child would grow up and become a servant, regardless of who her father may be. And of course, in real life, there were many plantation slaves who were actually fathered by their masters yet still kept in servitude.

    That was interesting. Thanks for the link.

    Actually I just found it...It wasn't Luwin, it was Lord Commander Mormont in conversation with Tyrion.

    You wouldn't happen to know the quote, would you? I've seen references to a line that Maester Luwin says, but I haven't been able to find it.

    On Planetos, are the days longer in the summer and shorter in the winter? Or do they change with the year because of the planet's axial tilt?
