  1. The Wondering Wolf

    The Wiki-Timeline Project v2

    @Peach King Arya had to scamper to keep up. Gendry was five years older and a foot taller than she was, and long of leg as well. (A Clash of Kings - Arya V) Arya spends a lot of time with Gendry and the wording does not indicate that she just guesses his age, so I would propose to take this statement as fact rather than assumption. Besides, after your changes the calculation does not add up anymore. There is a section that says he can not have been born in 283 AC, but you ignore that in your conclusion, so please fix that.

    Clothes worn by dragon-riders; "falling off the dragon"

    Did not see it was used before, that makes it even clearer. Androw offers Rhaena his support and wants to accompany her on her way to KL, but she refuses him, asking him what else he could do than falling off her dragon. Apparently Androw is deeply insulted by that and refers to Rhaena's words in his last moments when he says he could have done a lot for her and not just fallen off her dragon.

    Clothes worn by dragon-riders; "falling off the dragon"

    Androw refers to the fact that Rhaena never took him with her when she flew her dragon, although she did with her friends. He claims she never believed in him, his statement is meant to be understood from Rhaena's point of view. Then he goes on and claims she was wrong with her assesment and he could have done a lot more for her than falling off the dragon.

    Besides, it would have been odd if Jaehaerys had trusted one of the guys who played a significant role in his brother's downfall, so I doubt it was Prentys, as well. I would remove the entire part from Prentys's entry and raise the uncertainty at House Tully's page.

    Prentys Tully is stated to have fought at the God's Eye in 43 AC, but I can not find any evidence for that. Although a Lord Tully is mentioned, we do not learn his given name.
  6. As proposed by @Ran, I searched through the wiki and categorised all images of uncertain permission. I guess I missed quite a few, but at least it is a beginning. Most of them were made by Mike S. Miller, Douglas Wheatley, Magali Villeneuve, Ted Nasmith, Marc Simonetti and some more Worldbook contributors. Mike S. Miller contributed heavily to the graphic novels of the main books and the Hedge Knight novels. Neither he nor the graphic novel publisher seems to have been asked for permission. Douglas Wheatley contributed heavily to Fire and Blood and to a lesser extent to the Worldbook as well. Neither he nor the publisher seems to have been asked for permission. Magali Villeneuve, Ted Nasmith and Marc Simonetti contributed to the Worldbook, one of the ASOIAF calendars respectively, and to the 20th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of A Game of Thrones. Marc also created some cover art for foreign ASOIAF editions. While Magali seems not to have been asked, Ted and Marc were asked. Marc was fine with it, Ted as well, but pointed out that he did not own the copyright for some of his artwork. So we can use the images he did for FFG, but we would need to get permission for his other works first. Apparently that did not happen either. Ted has an important point there. Usually (I can not speak for every artist) an artist who draws for living does not maintain the copyright for his work but sells it to the company that ordered the work (otherwise he could sell it over and over again and many different companies could make money with it). So it is nice that Marc gave his permission, but I am not sure it matters at all. We would need to get the permission from Marvel, Random House, Bentam or whoever published the graphis novels, books, and calendars. It might even be possible that GRRM himself owns some of the copyrights, that depends on the contracts. So I think the next step would be to get in contact with some of the publishers and ask for permission.

    While I do not think it means a person's nameday has to take place within the same year, I believe it takes place within a rather short amount of time (in this case less than half a year). But since it is impossible for me to prove that, two given possibilities seem like a good compromise to me.

    The chapters themselves summarise a lot, so I am not sure what a summary on the wiki would look like.

    The Wiki-Timeline Project v2

    The MUSH was not my main argument anyway. But even if you do not think 'on the cusp of' means that a person has his or her next nameday very soon, Jacaerys shows it is at least possible, so there should be two possibilities for Lyonel (and Samantha).

    The Wiki-Timeline Project v2

    Any idea for the timing of Second Tumbleton or Aegon's II death? Something else: Lyonel Hightower is described as a fifteen year old youth "on the cusp of manhood" (i. e. his sixteenth birthday) at the time of his father's death. First Tumbleton took place in the first half of 130 AC. The only other time the term "on the cusp of" is used refers to Jacaerys Velaryon late in 129 AC ("on the cusp of his fifteenth nameday"), and he becomes fifteen later that year. So I think we can assume Lyonel became sixteen later that year, as well, and thus was born in 114 AC (and Samantha Tarly in 112 then). The MUSH states these dates, too.

    In 130 AC: More rivermen turned up the next day, led by Ser Garibald Grey, Lord Jon Charlton, and the new Lord of Raventree, the eleven-year-old Benjicot Blackwood. Also in 130 AC: Benjicot Blackwood, the twelve-year-old Lord of Raventree, had come forth, as had the widowed Sabitha Frey, Lady of the Twins, with her father and brothers of House Vypren. In 131 AC: To him gathered Benjicot Blackwood of Raventree, already a seasoned warrior at three-and-ten; Also 131 AC: Bloody Ben, as his men had taken to calling him, was only thirteen, an age at which most highborn boys are still squires, grooming their master’s horses and scouring the rust from their mail. So at the time of the Battle by the Lakeshore early in 130 he was 11, at the time of Second Tumbleton in the middle of 130 AC he was 12, when Elmo Tully calls his banner early in 131 AC, Benjicot is 13 and he is still 13 in the middle of the year. This just works with Benjicot being born early in 118 AC (as the MUSH states as well). Then we can conclude that Elmo died in 131 AC (as the MUSH states), because he called his banners after Aegons II campaign in the crownlands early in 131 AC. I am not sure if we can tell when Grover died though. We would need the rough timing for Second Tumbleton and Aegon's II death.

    The last sentence is not part of the chapter. It just reads: All this pleased King Jaehaerys, but none of it pleased him half so much as the gift that Queen Alysanne gave him as the year turned to an end, when she told him she was with child. Jaehaerys and Alysanne were devided for almost half a year in the German edition, as well.

    Can not look it up now, will do it later. Sure, and actually it is just the other way around (the German version has him 12, the English one 11).

    I had to save my entry before finishing it, but I added some more stuff. The Clegg issue is part of the German translation. Maegor is still eleven at the time Visenya proposes a betrothal with Rhaena (and not twelve as would be correct). Then it says Alyssa Velaryon's father was among the oldest supporter of Aegon I instead of her grandfather. Alyn Bullock is called Adam two times. And there is some weird stuff going on with the timing of the events around Saera. I do not think there is a thread for that kind of stuff, feel free to start one if you like.
