Dothraki and the Rhoyne

Recommended Posts

Hi, so I was wondering how the Dothraki crossed the Rhoyne, I don't see how they would cross not having boats of any kind, and they seemed to shun their use all together. I can't see the Volantenes allowing them into the city to cross, and I thought the bridges of the Rhoynar cities were destroyed with said cities. Looking at the map they would need to venture far northern Essos near to Braavos, which there has been no mention of. Thanks for any insights anyone could give.

It may have many naturaly shallow crossable points ,the bridges may have been rebuilt or smaller ones dotted across it to improve trade and make travel easier etc

The dothratki threathen the Free Cities on the coast, Pentos we know for sure. Daenerys makes the reverse journey in GoT, (using some internet, I don't have the books and quotes ready). She goes by Norvos, and cross some of the upper tributary rivers of the Royne, maybe the rivers are fordable at this point (this also makes sense for Norvos being in the location it is.) Or there are unmentioned bridges. What is sure is that they are able to do it with a large band of horses, carts and slaves so it's logical to assume there is a ford or a bridge.

Choose whatever fits your interpretation of the story better

I guess that is possible. I always found it strange that the Dothraki threaten Pentos and Myr from their position so far from the Dothraki Sea with the Rhoyne, and Qohor, Norvos, and Volantis in the ways. Also, their conquests since the end of the Century of Blood have been very small, compared to the previous centuries.
