Detailed ASOIAF timeline v. 2

Frankly, I'd rather chalk up Tyrion's travel times as an obvious error and ignore it for all other purposes.

 

Even placing stuff like it currently is, he's making 80+ miles each day for a month. Without changing horses, no less. No way in hell. That's a very decent speed for a two-day endurance riding competition. Horses literally die out of exhaustion after four or five days keeping up such speed.

What solution do you suggest?

 

Because the update won't make it any better, I'm afraid..

 

ETA: Update is almost done and ready for publication though, fixed a few more problems this evening.

Robb's nameday did move up in the update..

Just ignore Tyrion's travel time there altogether. It has been a problem from Errant Bard's timeline in 2008 until now and we've never been able to explain it away. GRRM simply made a mistake.

 

Everything else works out more or less, but that one problem is just unsolvable.
