According to the appendices of my two UK copies of AGoT, Arya is nine years old at the start of the book, whilst her birthday and her turning ten years old is mentioned briefly in the text of A Clash of Kings. Just getting confirmation that her age wasn't changed to eight in the revised edition of AGoT (which has never been published in the UK).--Werthead 19:30, July 1, 2010 (UTC)
Grammar corrections Edit
Rules say use American English. OED says "whilst" is "chiefly British." The American English word is "while." Furthermore, "she also a sword" is obviously not grammatically accurate. WikiYar 15:47, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
- "Whilst" might be chiefly British, but is being used by George R.R. Martin in his A Song of Ice and Fire books as well. Ausir(talk) 16:47, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

- I removed it. It has never been established in the TV series.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 16:33, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
Willem, not William Edit
I can't edit this page, but in the "Book" section, it refers to Willam as the person murdered by Yoren. I believe that should be Willem.
Arya's Death List Edit
The list is in, but I have a question: although the list obviously refers to her death prayer, do the people that she wished Jaquen to kill also count? They were technically never part of her nightly "death prayer", but they were people she explicitly wanted dead. In the show, this would mean adding the Tickler, Ser Amory Lorch and technically also Tywin —the first two were killed by Jaqen, the last wasn't, but he remained in Arya's death prayer, and he's already on the list as currently written. So, should we add the Tickler and Amory Lorch or not? I get the sense that they technically don't count, but I'd like other people to pitch in before changing anything. —ArticXiongmao (talk) 21:48, October 24, 2014 (UTC)
=Last episode of season 4Edit
Arya clearly sails north, as the East Coast of Westeros is seen to her left, and not to Braavos, where she would've be sailing away from the coast to her back in to open sea.
- Except that the ship is sailing out of a long narrow bay towards the sea. After they clear the bay, they'd still have to head north, because that's where Braavos is. Depending on the prevailing wind, they'd have to tack, which means they could end up heading south as well. Navigation is a tricky thing.126.96.36.199 00:15, January 30, 2015 (UTC)
Bother to look at a map before posting nonsense.
...Do you think the coast of Westeros is a straight line running directly north to south?
Arya was at Saltpans, which is at the mouth of the Trident River. Meaning that her ship has to sail directly east past the entire southern coast of the Vale to get to Braavos (which is due east from the Eyrie). The land you see on Arya's left is the southern coast of the Vale, because she's at the head of a large bay and sailing out to the sea.
This has nothing to do with prevailing winds.
