"In the Shadow Lands beyond Asshai, they say there are fields of Ghost Grass, with stalks as pale as milk that glow in the night, murders all other grass. The Dothraki believe that one day, it'll cover everything, that's the way the world will end."
―Ser Jorah Mormont[src]

The Shadow Lands are a location on the continent of Essos, located thousands of miles far to the east of Westeros and even the Free Cities, beyond the fabled land of Asshai.


Season 1

Illyrio Mopatis gives Daenerys Targaryen a wedding gift of three dragon eggs, said to be from the Shadow Lands beyond Asshai.[1]

On their travel east, Ser Jorah Mormont tells Daenerysthat the Shadow Lands are said to be covered by "ghost grass", a form of grass that, in Dothraki mythology, will overrun the green grass of the Dothraki Sea and spell the end of the world.[2]

Season 2

During her stay in Qarth, Daenerys encounters Quaithe, a mysterious woman hailing from the Shadow Lands.

In the books

The Shadow Lands lie beyond Asshai. To go to Asshai is sometimes described as to "pass beneath the shadow". It's unclear what "the Shadow" is.
