Rhaenys_Targaryen Posted December 17, 2015 Share Posted December 17, 2015 Thanks i guess i somehow read over that, but are there any other mentions of Brandon the daughterless i thougt he was part of the list of statues named by Bran but i just checked and he is not, this could mean that Brandon the daughterless did not exist at al. Afterall Bael's existens is questioned in twoiaf since he is not present in the records of Winterfell.If that is the case shouldend that be mentioned on the wikipage of Brandon altough it already says "supposedly" it to me at least was not weary clear.but again thanks for the quote.The supposedly seems to be about the timing of the events. Brandon is called a Lord, and the Kingsroad is mentioned, suggesting that Brandon the Daughterless lived after the Conquest. However, Bael's son was skinned by one of his lords who wore his skin, a description of House Bolton, but they are stated to have last skinned a Stark lord a thousand years ago (700 years BC), which is contradictory. So the "supposedly" means that Brandon supposedly was the Lord of Winterfell, (as per Ygritte's story), even though the part about skinning indicates that the legend of Bael took place before the Conquest, when the Starks were not Lords, but the Kings of Winter.
