New Ghis is a city in the Gulf of Grief, in Essos. It is located on a small island south of Ghiscar and separated from the continent by the Ghiscari Strait, putting it to the south of Astapor and the rest of Slaver's Bay. It is named after the ruined capital of the fallen Ghiscari Empire
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, New Ghis is located near the larger island of Ghaen. Much like Volantis once tried to do with the Valyrian Freehold, New Ghis seeks to rebuild the Ghiscari Empire under its leadership.
New Ghis has a powerful army and fleet, and uses elephants in battle. Its legions draw inspiration from the Unsullied warrior-eunuchs, but while the Unsullied are slaves the troops of New Ghis are free men who serve for three-year terms.
On "A Dance with Dragons", New Ghis joins the coalition of Yunkai and other cities against Daenerys, sending six legions, a total of 36,000 soldiers.
