In the above image from Histories & Lore: Robert's Rebellion, we see six Targaryen kings. I would like to determine which king is which before adding images of individual kings to articles. Based on their similarities to portraits by Amoka on the Wiki of Ice and Fire (which are based on descriptions provided by George R.R. Martin himself) I'm pretty sure the first is Aegon I Targaryen, the fifth is Maekar Targaryen and the sixth is Aegon V Targaryen. I'm not sure if the fourth is Baelor Targaryen or Aerys I Targaryen, and I have no idea who the second and third ones are.
Any input would be appreciated.Read more >
The Season 3 deleted scenes were very underwhelming this year compared to Season 2, which included a lot of Loras scenes mourning Renly which were sorely lacking from the main episodes.
Well that's a bit unfair: the Tywin-Pycelle deleted scene is amazing, but it already premiered at San Diego Comic-Con last summer.
The deleted scenes are:
- Tywin and Pycelle (deleted)
- Jon Snow considers fleeing
- Jon Snow meets Mance Rayder (extended)
- Robb, Northern lords, and the Tullys at Riverrun (extended)
- Small Council discusses the wildling threat (deleted)
Well, we've seen the Tywin-Pycelle stuff - it's great, doesn't really add any "new" information but adds some firm interaction between the two. Also very well filmed (Tywin is fishing and clubbing the fish de…Read more >
Shorter than the first one and with less new material.
Expected I guess: the original was the first Game of Thrones content we had in months, they wanted a big impact. This trailer feels more like part of a series of trailers.
Not much new info, but things I've noticed:
- Arya never met Melisandre in the books so she never added her to her hitlist. She didn't even do anything too bad to Gendry (that Arya knows of).
- First look at Styr, Magnar of the Thenn: the most advanced, disciplined, and dangerous of the wildling tribes. He just happened to be bald in the books - the TV series added the ritual scarification.
- Meereen, last and largest of the cities in Sla…
The 15 minute "Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing" preview for Season 4 was just posted.
- Forging two swords at the beginning.
- During the fast opening montage, there's a shot of Ramsay Snow hunting...with an apparently happy girl running behind him. That will turn dark.
- IMPORTANT: There's blink-or-you'll miss shot of riders holding banners, showing off some new Heraldry of previously unseen Houses from Dorne.
- The trailer clearly establishes that Jaime will be training with Bronn now. In the books, when Jaime gets back home he starts trying to retrain himself to use a sword left-handed, and he does it with Ilyn Payne (who, having had his tongue cut out, can'…
We finally have details on the extras in the Season 3 Blu-ray, being released February 18th. Particularly, we now have a list of what the next set of "Complete Guide to Westeros" videos (a full hour of content) will be:
Deleted and Extended Scenes - Five scenes are available:
- "Jon Meets Mance"
- "Edmure, Robb and The Blackfish"
- "Tywin and Pycelle"
- "Small Council Discusses Wildling Threat"
- "Jon Thinks About Escaping"
Well, I was really hoping for deleted scenes showing that Loras is really mourning Renly, and just "drowning his sorrows" with Olyver - Bryan Cogman said that he actually *scripted* such scenes but they were cut for time. I had hoped they'd filme…Read more >

Not much to report here, but a few things stood out:
- There's a shot of Tywin sitting down on the Iron Throne with apparently the full assembled Small Council - including Oberyn Martell at his right, Cersei to Oberyn's right. On Tywin's left away from the camera is more difficult to see...nonetheless, sitting immediately on Tywin's left we have our first semi-good image of Mace Tyrell. Margaery and Loras as to their father's left, not sure who is to Loras's left.
- There are stay shots here and there of characters we know but in slightly different costumes, i.e. Jaime, Brienne, Cersei, one or two new shots of Oberyn, etc. Best one was a very good closeup of Margaery's ornate wedding h…

HBO has posted a few small teasers for Season 4 through several Vines. Entertainment Weekly has posted them to their site.
They are pretty quick, but do you see anything that stands out? I have to admit, the last one intrigues me.

HBO will also premiere the first trailer for “Game of Thrones” Season 4 on Sunday, before the premiere of “True Detective!” We can't wait to see what the trailer has to offer and we definitely are excited to see Season 4, especially with the casting news that we've been seeing so far!

While perusing the article for the 2012 game on this site, I came across the following:
"Although using actors, music and imagery from the TV series, the computer game also references events from the Song of Ice and Fire novels that do not take place in the TV series. In addition, the visual representation of locations such as the Red Keep and Castle Black differ from the TV series in many respects. For this reason, it is assumed that the computer game is not to be considered canon for either the TV series or books, but as its own self-contained entity. For this reason, information on the houses and characters from the game should not have its own entries on this wiki."
This is quite odd to me. The TV series differs greatly from the books in…Read more >
I've been toying around with a conjectural language tree:
Factors that need to be considered for Low Valyrian are:
1 - We have no idea just how much Rhoynish influenced them. The Rhoynar were sort of like the Greeks to the Valyrian's Romans: they were already flourishing six thousand years ago. The Rhoynar are the ones who taught the Andals how to forge iron. I suspect that it had greater influence in the northern Free Cities, which are along the rivers.
2 - Volantis, Lys, Myr, and Tyrosh are all fairly similar due to being politically unified for so long - first by Volantis, then under the "Kingdom of the Tree Daughters".
3 - Tyrion can speak Braavosi, but can't speak Pentoshi -- which indicates that they actually aren't very s…

First news update on the Season 3 Blu-ray box set: http://winteriscoming.net/2013/11/season-3-box-set-details-and-bonus-feature-clip/
No specific word on the "Histories and Lore" featurettes, aka the "Complete Guide to Westeros", which will be included. But each of the past two season box sets came with a full hour of those.
The report also said there will be five major deleted scenes included. One of these is that Pycelle and Tywin scene. Interesting news I heard in a recent interview with Julian Glover is that he said the producers like that scene so much that they're mulling the idea of actually editing it back into a Season 4 episode (consider that it's two skilled, veteran British actors giving a really great performance). Yeah there's …Read more >

The Dance of Dragons is the name given to the devastating civil war between two rival branches of House Targaryen, which lasted for three years from 129 to 131 AL, during which most of the Targaryen dragons were killed. So few dragons survived that they could not maintain a stable breeding population (i.e. maybe two or three). The last two dragons were sickly, stunted creatures not much bigger than large dogs, which died only a few years after the Dance ended. Ultimately, the Dance resulted in the believed extinction of the entire species of dragons - for about a century and a half, that is, until Daenerys Targaryen hatched three live dragons.
The events surrounding the Dance with Dragons have on…Read more >
The "Sons of the Dragon" era is the period between the War of Conquest, and Aegon I's subsequent rule until his death in 37 AL, and the ascension to the throne of King Jaehaerys I in 48 AL.
Aegon I Targaryen (sometimes known as "The Dragon") had two sons, one by each of his sister-wives: Aenys I, son of Rhaenys, and Maegor the Cruel, son of Visenya. This era was dominated by a long string of anti-Targaryen rebellions, hoping to overthrow their recent conquest. These culminated in the Faith Militant uprising, the largest of these rebellions, which dragged on for many years and was the dominant military conflict of this historical era.
Aegon I was survived by his sister-wife Queen Visenya, her son Maegor, and his bastard half-brother Orys Baratheo…

Aegon I Targaryen, "Aegon the Conqueror", was crowned King by the High Septon when he entered Oldtown in the year 2 AL.
The naming of the "After Aegon's Landing" (or "AL") dating system is inherently a misnomer, as Aegon I himself counted the years of his reign as starting from the end of his conquest, when he entered Oldtown and was blessed by the High Septon, which occurred two years after Aegon and his army first landed on the mainland at the mouth of the Blackwater Rush. It would have been more accurate to call it "AC" for "After Conquest". Aegon originally declared himself king when he first landed at the mouth of the Blackwater, but in later years he counted the years of his reign as beginning with his crowning by the High Septon. Per…Read more >
Recopied from the Wertzone blog: http://thewertzone.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-full-story-of-targaryen-conquest-in.html
The Valyrian Freehold expanded into the western coastal reaches of Essos some two centuries before the Doom. They colonised the island of Dragonstone in the Narrow Sea, establishing a stronghold there (presumably from which they could trade with the Seven Kingdoms). The Freehold was ruled by the Lords Freeholder, powerful noble families. The most powerful of these were the Dragonlords, those families which controlled and rode dragons in battle. The Targaryens were Dragonlords, but far from the most powerful.
Twelve years before the Doom of Valyria, Lord Aenar Targaryen's daughter, Daenys, had a powerful prophetic dream that V…

will portray the Three-eyed raven]]As the countdown the Season 4 continues, so do the casting updates. While it's no secret that while covering the remainder of the events of A Storm of Swords, the fourth season of Game of Thrones will also feature material from the concurrent novels A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons. Joel Fry and Mark Gatiss have been cast as Hizdahr zo Loraq and Tycho Nestoris, respectively, but this latest announcement is very interesting indeed.
Struan Rodger has been cast in the role of the mysterious Three-eyed raven that has haunted Bran Stark's dreams since the first season. Those who have not read the books are no doubt confused by this, as the raven has already appeared in the show and doesn't appear …Read more >
If you've read A Song of Ice and Fire you know that Dany later has a Meereenese contact named Hizdahr zo Loraq. Hizdahr plays a key part during Dany's time in Meereen, but we won't spoil that for you! Just know that Game of Thrones has found a Hizdahr, and his name is Joel Fry!
Fry will be joining a number of new guest stars on the HBO show, and hopefully he'll play the Meereenese noble just right! What do you think of this casting? Could you see him as Hizdahr zo Loraq? Sound off in the comments below!

If you read the recap for one of the episodes, and want to read the recap for the next one, you have to go back to the episode, then click on the next one, and then go over to the recap. This takes three clicks. Wouldn't it be easier to link each of the episode recaps to the following and preceeding recap? This way, "Valar Dohearis recap" would link to "Valar Morghulis recap" (last recap) and also to "Dark wings, dark word recap" (next recap)

In "Mhysa", I came up with a theory why Ygritte shot Jon. Haven't read the books!
In the previous episode, you book readers knew that she actually didn't defend Jon at the Gift in the books, but she did in the series*. When Jon left her just randomly, she maybe felt like betrayed and heart-broken as if he didn't love her. And now, I think the real reason she shot Jon is because he was the only one she had ever truly loved ("I'm yours, and you are mine") and she was afraid that she would never see him again.
So, according to my theory, I think the reason she shot Jon is because of their love for each other.
What is your opinion about this? And do you have any other suggestions why she shot Jon?
(please don't come with any future spoilers from …Read more >
There has been so much blood and civil war in Westeros lately that made me wonder what started all of this? The bloodshed began with the rebellion of Robert Baratheon. However it was not only the Mad King's action that lead to the uprising of the Houses. Before that was the kidnapping of Lyanna Stark by Rhaegar Targaryen. I have not read the books but it seems that the heir to the Iron Throne was just and kind. Furthermore, since there never really was an explanation to his deed, the abduction, I have come to the conclusion that Lyanna and Rhaegar fell in love with each other during the great tourney at Harrenhal and he took her away because she was betrothed. So perhaps it was true love that began this war?Read more >
Maybe it's because I've been spoiled with the previous two seasons but I was expecting a much more massive and jaw-dropping scene to end Season 3. After all, Season 1 ended with the birth of Dany's dragons and Season 2 ended with Sam's sighting of the White Walkers. I found the climax for Season 3 disappointing though. It was a good scene but it was nowhere near as cliffhanger-ish as the previous two finales. It wasn't even as good as the Sack of Astapor.
Hopefully this will change in the future but right now Dany always seems to get what she wants and it's getting a bit boring to honest. I mean, did anyone have any doubt that the Yunkish slaves were going to greet her with open arms?Read more >
In the spirit of wikia, I've choosen Summer, the direwolf of Brandon Stark as my avatar. At the end of S03E10, Brandon is a surviving son of House Stark, on his way to the North. Its an insurmountable task he is faced with, blessed as he is by the Old Gods with Greensight. We learn from Jojen Reed that their quest is the only hope of the land to turn back the white walkers, the threat of whom is the reason the wall was built. But it is not wall or armies that will defeat them. Having had polio, I identify with Bran, also crippled in his youth, but nonetheless proving himself to the task of hero of the land. His Greensight is leading him into the lands of winter and we wonder about his ultimate fate at the hands of the Old Gods.Read more >
After watching the last episode, I must admit I'm a bit disappointed with the changes the writers have done in regards to army sizes as compared to the book series.
In this episode Yara says that she will take the fastest ship and 50 of the best fighters and move across the narrow sea and the weeping water river into the Dreadford. Assuming that she does this, this voyage would take her through the Lannister, the Tyrrell, the Dorn, the Baratheon and the Arryn fleet, as she would have to sail across most of Westeros. Moreover in episode 7 of the second season Tyrion says that Stannis' fleet is moving from the Stormlands to King's Landing and he would arrive within 5 days- 4 if the wind is to his advantage. I suppose this means Yara's voyage…Read more >

Amazing episode 9! While it was clear Cat and Robb were going to die at some point, this part still blew me away (reading the books, but still on book 2)! Very powerful scene, but again you knew Robb's days were numbered...
Great part was Bran figuring out how to control others...this sets it up for the "weakest" member of the Stark family to be the most powerful by being able to control dragons, people, the Others...you name it - he is now a contender and important player in the Game!
Wasn't quite sure why Jon rushed off - he should of realized his brothers were nearby...Read more >
I'm talking of course about the Red Wedding. I watched it half an hour ago and I'm still in utter shock. To the book-readers here, did you all feel the same way when you read it and was it as powerful?
Also, was it Roose Bolton who killed Catelyn too?
And (please no spoilers here!) but last week Stannis used Gendry's blood to curse Robb, Balon and Joffrey. Robb's dead now. I doubt it's a coincidence right?!Read more >

Since the general wikia community has more knowledge and skill at this sort of thing than I do, currently, I have a question. Can anyone tell me why there isn't a "Season 3" category on Ser Jorah's page, considering that both the Khaleesi and Barristan Selmy have one. Yes, I understand thar such a thing would require a lot of work, but given this fandom's competence, I would expect at least a few entries by now. There's probably a good explanation for this, just wanted to field the question.Read more >

As I may have mentioned before in other comments, I am really looking forward to seeing Edmure's wedding in the show. For many reasons I can't explain due to spoilers, but will be able to after the episode airs, it's one of my favorite events in the books. So while watching the preview for "The Rains of Castamere" I was on the lookout for anything that might reveal a hint as to whether or not the wedding would occur. Now, the title of the episode looked promising, but the preview seemed to focus mostly on Bran, Arya and Jon, but if you pause it at 28 seconds, you get a split-second shot: Edmure being carried away by women while laughing. The bedding ceremony. Meaning that the wedding will be in two weeks, and I am really excited.

It feels strange to compliment a bear's acting, but Little Bart, portraying one of the eponymous characters of last night's episode, really impressed me with his performance. A lot of the time when an animal in a movie or on television is supposed to be attacking someone, it's obvious that it isn't really trying to harm anybody and no one is in any real danger. I was pleased to see Little Bart, a trained bear, portraying a vicious wild bear very convincingly. I believed that Jaime and Brienne were in real peril. Kudos to the animal actor, to his handlers, and to Michelle MacLaren.Read more >

Hello everybody, I have been on this wiki for a couple of days now and I'm enjoying reading articles :)
But I have found a problem however....
I saw on the page "policies and guidelines" that this wiki is for the Game of Thrones TV Show and not the Song of Ice and Fire (The books). Then that is suppose to mean that this wiki should be about the SHOW, NOT about the books. Sure there can be some references or something about them on notes (something small) in articles but when I read articles on this wiki, I read almost 30% of the novels in almost every article (I don't care about it). The first thing I look when I start on a new wiki is to look on its policies/guidelines/rules. When I saw it mentioned about the TV-Show and books I thought tha…Read more >
