And I think that is also the fact for the Crownlands, tho at a lesser extent, that is why I put the Crownlands so far up my list and migth actually be higher in my mind. the Crownlands is pretty small, I mean the Riverlands is twice the size and more fertile 4 minutes ago, Vaegon the dragonless said: Like I said, I think the North is just that much more empty then you think it is, but that is only a point of view. I believe that both are quite a bit more populated then the Westerlands, I would say maybe the Riverlands have only a little more population density but they are quite put down by the fact they are in the middle of conflicts, but after a long period of peace and in summer I would say that the Riverlands have maybe 1,5 to 2 times the population of the Westerlands. The Reach is most likely absolutly massive, I mean to field 80 000 men, the base population must be pretty massive, I would say that the Reach as at least 2 times the population of the Riverlands. I wouldn't be surprised if The Riverlands did have twice the population of the Westerlands given that its over a third larger the Reach has double the population of the Riverlands at the minimum just from the difference in size plus a little bit more fertile lands due to not getting devastated all the time Which is nuts, the Reach probably has half the people in the Seven Kingdoms in it.
