Its proximity would make it vulnerable to Dothraki attack, and shortly after the fall of [[Valyria]] (of which empire Qohor was an outpost) the Dothraki indeed attempted to sack it. However, the governor purchased three thousand [[Unsullied]], warrior-eunuchs from Astapor in [[Slaver's Bay]], to help bolster the garrison. The Dothraki lost thousands upon thousands of men and horses upon the Unsullied shield-wall, including their ''[[khal]]'' and most of his bloodriders. Though they reduced the Unsullied to a handful of men, the remaining Dothraki honored their achievement and spared the city. Since that time Qohor has been guarded by an Unsullied garrison and the Dothraki have not attempted to attack it again.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Soon after the Doom of Valyria, four hundred years before the War of the Five Kings, Valyria's outlying colonies in Essos were thrown into chaos. As the colonies formed into the modern Free Cities, without the Valyrians and their dragons to hold them in check anymore, the Dothraki mounted hordes burst forth from the central plains of Essos, rampaging across the continent. Khal Temmo led his khalasar numbering in the tens of thousands towards Qohor, intending to raze the city completely. However, the horde was decisively defeated in the resulting Battle of Qohor, by 3,000 Unsullied warrior-eunuchs purchased from Astapor. Temmo himself as well as his sons were killed, and Qohor was saved.

Qohor is still the closest of the Free Cities to the Dothraki Sea, but ever since Temmo's defeat it has been guarded by a standing garrison of Unsullied purchased from Slaver's Bay.

Season 1Edit

The khalasar of Khal Drogo passes close to Qohor during their journey to Vaes Dothrak. Ser Jorah Mormont takes advantage of their proximity to procure more supplies, but in reality, to also send word to Varys that Daenerys Targaryen is pregnant.[3]

Ned Stark visits the forge of the blacksmith Tobho Mott, a Qohorik master-armorer who moved to King's Landing many years ago.[4]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Qohor lies east of Pentos and Norvos, close to the edge of the Dothraki Sea and in a vast area of woodland and grassland known as the Forest of Qohor. The city is also located on the River Qhoyne, a tributary of the vast Rhoyne, and Qohorik warships control the territory south to Dagger Lake.

Qohor is famed for its blacksmiths, craftsmen and metal-workers. Its citizens worship a deity known as the Black Goat.

"Qohor" is pronounced "Kwoh-hor", as opposed to "koh-hor" (Jorah pronounces it "kwoh-hor": if it was "koh-hor" it would have just been spelled "Kohor" with a "K").

LocationEdit

Qohor is shown in the incorrect location on the Season 2 Viewer's Guide map. This map has Qohor north-west of its proper location, on the wrong tributary of the Rhoyne (and much further away from the Forest of Qohor). However, the "Areas of Control" map for Season 2 puts Qohor in its correct location, matching that of the novels.
