Lady Blizzardborn Posted December 17, 2016 Share Posted December 17, 2016 54 minutes ago, SFDanny said: I'd say the most likely age range for Ashara is about the same as Ned or Brandon. which puts Ashara either 37 or 38 in year 300 when Tyrion estimates Lemore's age. Given Lemore's history of living for many years on a Riverboat it isn't hard to see Tyrion being mistaken in his age estimation. It's is a much harder life living outdoors on the Rhoyne river, than it is living at court with servants on hand to do all your chores for you and fetch and cook your meals. Only if the author completely ignored the customs of the society he was writing. Ned and Brandon were both in their 20s at the time of the Harrenhal tourney. If Ashara was in her 20s at Harrenhal she would have to have been either unmarriageable--which we have no reason to assume--or a widow--which we know she wasn't. Or if the author completely ignored the customs of the society he was writing...which he may have done. We just don't know yet. I'm pretty sure at least some of the mystery surrounding Ashara will get cleared up before the end of the series. Maybe we won't know everything, but the big questions will likely be answered. There's too much deliberate baiting of the readers with House Dayne tidbits for GRRM not to follow through and produce some info for us. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
