Illustration Errors

Recommended Posts

So Viserys I wore the seven-jeweled crown of his grandfather Jaehaerys and Aegon V wore the gold band of Aegon I and Viserys II. How come they're both depicted as wearing the Valyrian Steel circlet with square rubies of Aegon the Conqueror? A mistake by the illustrator?

While we have been told that Viserys I wore his father's crown, I guess that in some ocasions he could have used the Conqueror's Valyrian steel crown with square rubies. He surely had access to this crown, as his son Aegon II would eventually use it.

But having Aegon V with it, in all likelihood, a mistake. The crown seems to have disappeared a century ago with Daeron I in Dorne, and warrior-like kings such as Maekar would have worn it if it was available.
