Queenscrown is a settlement in the Gift, the lands south of the Wall administered by the Night's Watch. It is located south of the Nightfort. Queenscrown was once a thriving town and holdfast, but is now abandoned.
In the booksEdit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels Queenscrown was renamed after Queen Alysanne Targaryen stayed there. The tower's merlons were repainted in gold in honor of her visit.
Queenscrown consists of a single tall tower located on an island in the midst of a lake. There is a causeway located just under the water, but its location is difficult to see. This makes attacking the holdfast difficult. A small village and inn used to lie on the shores of the lake near the holdfast. The holdfast has been abandoned out of fear of wildling raids from the north. Whilst the village has long-since fallen into disrepair, the tower remains relatively intact.
