MightilyOats Posted November 4, 2010 Share Posted November 4, 2010 I'm not sure if this has been done elsewhere (though it likely has, this board seems to have been around for awhile) but I think it'd be fun to list everyone, from tallest to shortest, and give approximate heights if you feel you've got it figured out.For example, Brienne (by Martin's own words) is about as tall as Robert, who was a confirmed 6'6", but slightly shorter than the Hound.So I've always pegged the Hound to be around 6'7"-6'9", but no taller. I'll say 6'8". That's also about how tall I'd say Dunk is. Closer to seven feet than to 6, and quite a bit taller than the vast majority of people he meets. There's also his being taller than even the Laughing Storm, who was so obviously a physical stand-in for Robert it was stupid.Jaime and Renly are both described as tall men, though in both cases shorter than Brienne. So to them, I'd say about 6'2". Martin seemed to think of them as alike in physical size here: http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/Brienne_of_Tarth/ and going off various descriptions that seems roughly accurate.Victarion "towers" over other men, but is himself shorter than Andrik, who is described as a giant of a man. Victation I'd peg at 6'9" and Andrik at 7 feet.Stannis is a weird one. Hes never been compared, directly, to either of his brothers but Jon describes him as towering over him. Stannis I'd say would be about 6'4".So we've got Gregor at the top at a confirmed what, 7'10"?Gregor Clegane - 7'10"Greatjon Umber/Hodor/Andrik - 7'Victarion Greyjoy - 6'9"Sandor Clegane/Ser Duncan the Tall/Bronze Yohn Royce - 6'8"Robert Baratheon/Brienne of Tarth - 6'6"Who can fill in some more blanks? Eddard would have been what, 5'10"? So..."tall" but still in the average range. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
