Northern sers

Jorah Mormont is a ser, does it mean that he doesn't believe in the old gods? The faith of the seven is necessary, or is it possible that a northern man can become a ser? --Exodianecross (talk) 23:38, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

knighthood can also be bestowed as a reward, as was the case of jorah mormont, regardless of faith.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 23:53, April 30, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, I understand! That's why northern men like Jorah or Rodrik Cassel have this title! --Exodianecross (talk) 00:27, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

Possible Coincidence?

In Medieval Italy, "Ser" was a contraction of the word "Signore". Though it didn't specifically refer to anyone with a knighthood. Just a form of address for a nobleman, more akin to "milord".

The English word sir and the Italian word signore both derive from the Latin senior. OrbFu (talk) 21:42, September 8, 2017 (UTC)
