    Small Questions v. 10105

    Thanks for that one. Do you have any insights one the 195 AC date for the First Blackfyre Rebellion? Why did people assume it started then so long and where did the 196 date come from?

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Not sure about that. Was it not mentioned that the stories trump the history books? By the way, I think the starting date for the rebellion could be an error as well. For years people (even Ran himself) thought the rebellion started in 195 AC, and the "If it was truly all for the love of Daenerys, how is it that eight years passed before the rebellion bloomed?" line seems to support this assumption. I think the easiest way to solve the issues would be to place the start of the First Blackfyre Rebellion in 195, the Redgrassfield in 196, the Sword Sword in 211 and the Mystery Knight in 212.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    @Rhaenys_Targaryen Does the Mystery Knight not take place in 212 AC? I know the Worldbook states 211, but as you pointed put earlier, there are some issues with the "16 years after the Blackfyre Rebellion" line.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    So it is based on a contradicting statement by GRRM? Seems a bit unsatisfactory. I would add it as source anyway.

    The ASOIAF wiki thread

    What is the source for Blackfyre being a hand-and-a-half longsword/bastard sword?

    Secrets best left buried (Fire & Blood)

    If you had liked to kill off the nobility of the Roman Republic, you would have been quite successful in it by blowing off Rome itself. You would have missed some guys in the provinces, but Rome was the center of their empire and most guys had no reason to be elsewhere. If a family had decided to move to another area for some time, they would have lost a lot of influence. I think it is the same with Valyria.

    The Pact of Ice and Fire

    Why did GRRM spend (waste) so many pages on Coryanne Wylde when it did not lead anywhere at all? Mushroom claims unbelievable stuff all the time, I think this is GRRM's way to muddle his histories.

    The Fossoways of Cider Hall

    At least you are allowed to post links to the wiki, the host is the same. And I know it is on the wiki, but the Knight of New Barrel thing is never mentioned anywhere and the landed knight thing is a bit ambigous (although I would consider the hairy bear's interpretation of the appendix the most likely one).

    The Fossoways of Cider Hall

    Where is it confirmed that the Fossoways of New Barrel are landed knights and hold the title Knight of New Barrel? I remember this was put forth in earlier discussions, but I do not know any source stating that. For the Fossoways of Cider Hall at least there is the entry of Cider Hall in the app. I think Elio once stated that GRRM did not give them the name of Lyonels's mother, so looks like an invention of the MUSH.

    At which point is it possible to know that one is pregnant?

    The Wiki-Timeline Project v2

    I do not want to sound rude at all, but to be honest I am a bit surprised that you do not seem to be familiar with the timeline of the books while stating things like "everyone is influenced by their opinions". There are timelines based on proper calculations and I would recommand to have a look on them before discussing things further. Of course there might be some inaccuracies, but at least the years of each book are commonly accepted (AGOT 298/299, ACOK 299, ASOS 299/300, AFFC 300, ADWD 300). This one is quite good and gives you a nice overview.

    The Wiki-Timeline Project v2

    The story starts in 298 AC for sure. We get Joffrey's 13th nameday in A Clash of Kings and it is right in Sansa's first chapter, so very early in 299 AC. Jon Arryn dies two weeks after Joffrey's 12th nameday.

    The Wiki-Timeline Project v2

    @Rhaenys_Targaryen Impressive. Would it be possible to get a proper date for the Battle of Bells by using Robb's birthday?

    [Spoilers] Fire and Blood Errata

    What I meant is Ran was asked about Munkun when he and even GRRM himself thought the book would be published in one volume, so F&B would have given the answer. I do not know if GRRM has already written about it (and Ran knows the answer) or GRRM has not written about it (and Ran just expects the matter to be adressed), but there was some stuff cut from the later kings as well. I seem to remember a word count of 20000.

    Back in 2014 Ran also did not know they would split the book in two parts.
