Historical Inspiration for the Iron Bank of BraavosEdit

Both companies loaned money to princes, kings, emperors and popes and also influenced the politics within their own city-states and abroad. --Fenrir51 (talk) 14:03, May 13, 2014 (UTC)
While the Medici Bank may have inspired it's socio-economic role its disign likely draws from Iron Mountain one of the most secure plases in the USA. Like the Iron Bank (IB), Iron Mountain (IM) was an old mine, that was converted to a vault and is used by many of the biggest corprate entites on their respective continent. Also IM is very secretive it is operated by a staff of 100 people and all vault owners are anonymous22.214.171.124 06:46, February 21, 2016 (UTC) Anthony111444
