The Kingdom of Mann and the Isles comparison with the old kingdom of the Iron Islands and the Riverlands in the background history of this series, are a pretty close approximation. It hardly contradicts George R.R. Martin's statement about the ironborn being comparable to the Vikings, since Mann and the Isles was a Viking political creation. --Fenrir51 (talk) 16:29, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
- It was just a bit too specific; "outer celtic fringe of the British Isles" i.e. Pictish raiders works better.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:06, July 12, 2013 (UTC)
"Note: "ironborn" is consistently spelled with a lowercase "i", except when it is the first word in a sentence."
The capital I "Ironborn" is a typo that needs to be fixed when it appears.
