    The Dragon Demands

    Not much to report here, but a few things stood out:

    • There's a shot of Tywin sitting down on the Iron Throne with apparently the full assembled Small Council - including Oberyn Martell at his right, Cersei to Oberyn's right. On Tywin's left away from the camera is more difficult to see...nonetheless, sitting immediately on Tywin's left we have our first semi-good image of Mace Tyrell. Margaery and Loras as to their father's left, not sure who is to Loras's left.
    • There are stay shots here and there of characters we know but in slightly different costumes, i.e. Jaime, Brienne, Cersei, one or two new shots of Oberyn, etc. Best one was a very good closeup of Margaery's ornate wedding h…

    I've been toying around with a conjectural language tree:

    Factors that need to be considered for Low Valyrian are:

    1 - We have no idea just how much Rhoynish influenced them. The Rhoynar were sort of like the Greeks to the Valyrian's Romans: they were already flourishing six thousand years ago. The Rhoynar are the ones who taught the Andals how to forge iron. I suspect that it had greater influence in the northern Free Cities, which are along the rivers.

    2 - Volantis, Lys, Myr, and Tyrosh are all fairly similar due to being politically unified for so long - first by Volantis, then under the "Kingdom of the Tree Daughters".

    3 - Tyrion can speak Braavosi, but can't speak Pentoshi -- which indicates that they actually aren't very s…

    First news update on the Season 3 Blu-ray box set: http://winteriscoming.net/2013/11/season-3-box-set-details-and-bonus-feature-clip/

    No specific word on the "Histories and Lore" featurettes, aka the "Complete Guide to Westeros", which will be included. But each of the past two season box sets came with a full hour of those.

    The report also said there will be five major deleted scenes included. One of these is that Pycelle and Tywin scene. Interesting news I heard in a recent interview with Julian Glover is that he said the producers like that scene so much that they're mulling the idea of actually editing it back into a Season 4 episode (consider that it's two skilled, veteran British actors giving a really great performance). Yeah there's …

    Okay kid, this is where it gets complicated...

    The Dance of Dragons is the name given to the devastating civil war between two rival branches of House Targaryen, which lasted for three years from 129 to 131 AL, during which most of the Targaryen dragons were killed. So few dragons survived that they could not maintain a stable breeding population (i.e. maybe two or three). The last two dragons were sickly, stunted creatures not much bigger than large dogs, which died only a few years after the Dance ended. Ultimately, the Dance resulted in the believed extinction of the entire species of dragons - for about a century and a half, that is, until Daenerys Targaryen hatched three live dragons.

    The events surrounding the Dance with Dragons have on…

    The Dragon Demands

    The "Sons of the Dragon" era is the period between the War of Conquest, and Aegon I's subsequent rule until his death in 37 AL, and the ascension to the throne of King Jaehaerys I in 48 AL.

    Aegon I Targaryen (sometimes known as "The Dragon") had two sons, one by each of his sister-wives: Aenys I, son of Rhaenys, and Maegor the Cruel, son of Visenya. This era was dominated by a long string of anti-Targaryen rebellions, hoping to overthrow their recent conquest. These culminated in the Faith Militant uprising, the largest of these rebellions, which dragged on for many years and was the dominant military conflict of this historical era.


    Aegon I was survived by his sister-wife Queen Visenya, her son Maegor, and his bastard half-brother Orys Baratheo…
