The Wondering Wolf Posted July 30, 2021 Share Posted July 30, 2021 47 minutes ago, Nittanian said: While it hypothetically could be different Lords Staunton, GRRM's phrasing in those chapters suggest to me that it is the same individual (who is unfortunately not given a first name). I mean it would make sense for sure, but question remains if this is enough to state it as fact. One of the issues of the book is that it introduces a lot of characters with their given names only stated later or not at all. I've already mentioned the case of Lord Darklyn, but there are also several references to Lord Tully in the Sons of the Dragon chapter and in my opinion there are good reasons to assume they refer to at least two different Tully lords. So I think it's just impossible to tell if the Lord Staunton who stayed with Maegor is the same who died of the Shivers in 59 AC. 59 minutes ago, Thomaerys Velaryon said: Yeah, it is possible to have several Lords Staunton with such close set of dates. I don't think there were more than two, but even if that was the case, it would be impossible to tell where to make the cut between them. 1 hour ago, Thomaerys Velaryon said: I don't know how to prove it one way or the other, however. Sure, but I think the wiki should present only things we can prove. Otherwise we would open Pandora's box. 1 hour ago, Thomaerys Velaryon said: Do you want to create up to 4 Lords Staunton at that time ? Of course not. I would delete the article and put the content into House Staunton's page, one paragraph dealing with the Staunton stuff from 48 to 59 AC, stating something like "It is not clear whether these Lord Stauntons were one or more individuals" after the last footnote.
