Mantarys Pin

A map showing the location of Mantarys on the continent of Essos.

Mantarys is a city-state located northeast of the Free City of Volantis and northwest of Slaver's Bay, due north of fallen Valyria. It is located at the northeastern tip of the Sea of Sighs.

Mantarys is the only overland waystop of any note for travelers and merchants taking the land route from the Free Cities to Slaver's Bay. The people of Mantarys are known as Mantari.


Season 4Edit

Grand Maester Pycelle states that the manticore venom used by Oberyn Martell on his spears during his duel against Ser Gregor Clegane is of Mantari origin.[1]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Mantarys used to be a city of the Valyrian Freehold. Although it survived the Doom of Valyria, it has since gained a foul reputation as a city of "monsters", assassins, and poisoners. The only character from Mantarys to appear in the narrative, briefly, is a two-headed slavegirl in a freakshow at Yunkai.

The road from Volantis to Slaver's Bay is called the "demon road" and is shunned by most travelers, who prefer to take the sea route south around the Valyrian Peninsula. It is not considered to be one of the Free Cities, nor apparently part of "Slaver's Bay", likely due to its isolated nature and unpleasant reputation.

Mantarys is the principal surviving city of the Lands of the Long Summer, an area lying immediately north of the Valyrian Peninsula which used to be one of the heartlands of the empire.
