The Dragon Demands Posted January 20, 2018 Share Posted January 20, 2018 I was working on some of the calendar dates given in the Princess and the Queen (for once, we actually get internal dating within a year):http://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Maiden's_Day Someone probably asked before, but I'm confused: Caraxes fought Vhagar above Gods Eye on "the twenty-second day of the fifth moon of 130 AC". ...and Rhaenyra died "on the twenty-second day of the tenth moon of 130 AC" ...meaning that a full five months passed between the Battle Above the Gods Eye, and Rhaenyra's death on Dragonstone? Second Tumbleton happens, two bastard-born dragonriders betray Rhaenyra. While the Green army dithers about at Tumbleton divided on how to proceed, Rhaenyra grows distrustful of bastards and tries to arrest the other dragonseeds - but Addam Velaryon escapes King's Landing on his dragon, causing her to arrest Coryls Velaryon, causing the Velaryon fleet to abandon the city, leading to panic and the eventual storming of the Dragonpit and riots that oust Rhaenyra from the city. Around the same time Rhaenyra tried to arrest Addam Velaryon, she sent a letter to Maidenpool demanding Nettles's head, which makes even Daemon abandon her, instead seeking death fighting Aemond on Vhagar. It took some time for the letter to reach Maidenpool, and Daemon waited at Harrenhal for two weeks before Aemond arrived. Rhaenyra flees King's Landing due to riots, goes overland - albeit slowly - from KL to Rosby to Stokeworth to Duskendale, then takes a ship to Dragonstone. I don't see how that adds up to five months of time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
