The Axe

A map showing the location of the Axe on the continent of Essos.

The Axe is a region on the continent of Essos, located to the east of Westeros. It is a large, axehead-shaped peninsular extending northwards into the Shivering Sea.[1]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Axe is a mountainous headland, an extension of the hills and mountains to the south. Norvos maintains mines in this area. Ores are taken by land down to the Darkwash River and thence to Norvos and Qohor.

According to legend, the Andals inhabited the Axe before they migrated further west to Andalos. However, the Axe has changed hands and been recolonized so many times in its history that this is impossible to verify.
