Error in the index?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else notice in the back of the book, where the list all the different houses and stuff that they messed up on Joffrey? Said he was 12 at the time of his death, even though he had his 13th name day at the beginning of Clash. Idk if it was just my edition, but anyone else notice this in their book?

Unless it has been corrected in a later printing, I think that it might not be an error. They may count the day of birth as the first name day (literally the day you are named). If Joffrey had passed twelve birthdays (by our system) he would have had thirteen name days at twelve years old. It's been awhile since I've read the whole thing from the beginning, so I can't remember if they specify years or not when they talk about his age.
