Throughout the series, a large number of characters have gone missing. Some have run off of their own accord, others perhaps seized against their will. Some we last saw in great danger while others, well, they’re not so easy to categorize. This episode is dedicated to those characters who have been on the pages but don’t have known locations, let a…

“How often do you think about the Roman Empire?” is a fun question that went viral in 2024, but in this episode we’re concerned more with how often GRRM thought about Rome (and not just the empire) when writing ASOIAF. We’ll also take a few minutes to talk about how HBO’s Rome was pivotal to the making of HBO’s GoT. Rize: https://rize.io/u/westeros…

DUNE is one of the most successful sci fi creations of all time, and GRRM is absolutely one of the many who was influenced by it.

There are NO spoilers for Dune 2 the movie in this episode - but look out for part 2 of this episod…

Aegon and Visenya faced no true threats to their reign from the outside, but the biggest problems can start from within, and even the first House of the Dragon was troubled by such. An abundance of Targaryen births late in the Conqueror’s reign set off issues of succession, marriage, dragon-bonding and other matters of power and status. Meanwhile K…

The First Dornish War was Aegon the Conqueror’s last war. For the rest of his reign he was largely concerned with peace. However, enforcing peace in warlike Westeros is no easy thing. Did Aegon actually rule well, or was everyone just afraid of him? Did his policies lead to the many civil conflicts that came less than a generation after his death? …

A strange but true fact about the First Dornish War: by far the longest and most brutal phase came after the Conqueror declared victory and took most of his troops home. We break down the assassinations, bounties, raids and other shameful acts of intrigue that came to define the conflict more than battles ever could. You get 1 month for free, when …

Last time we discussed the first few years of Aegon’s reign. The final subtopic we covered was the peaceful attempts to bring Dorne into the realm. We wondered what kind of offers and/or threats were made… regardless, though, they didn’t work.

No character represents the concept of revenge or the blood feud like the Red Viper. It is ironic, and quite intriguing that his paramour Ellaria Sand is quite likely the character who best represents opposition to these cycles of violence... and unlike Oberyn, she's still alive and still fighting for peace, while one of her daughters, named Elia f…

Who knows about it? Who have they told and who will they tell? and when?? How might it impact House Stark, the Night's Watch, Stannis, Roose, and the rest? There are so many players, and none of them have the full picture. Robb's will has the potential to supercharge the North at a time when so much is already happening, and winter is coming... Few…

Most bent the knee to the overwhelming might of the dragons. This may have made Aegon overconfident, as he assumed the submission of Dorne and a few other holdouts. That they defied the Conqueror makes them all the braver, or perhaps all the more foolish. Bonus Eps & More - www.patreon.com/historyofwesteros Shirts & Stickers - historyofwesteros.thr…

With Harrenhal a smoking ruin and the largest army ever seen in Westeros defeated with ease, many rulers decide, at last, that they have no choice but to bend the knee to Aegon the Conqueror. We examine the events of the time as well as how these legends appear to the characters and how they manifest within ASOIAF ~300 years later. Use code 50weste…

The largest army Westeros has ever seen vs. Vhagar, Meraxes and Balerion - the only time the three fought together. It's shock and awe with dragons... but it's not the battle that we consider the best part of this story. He wasn't taking on a hated tyrant, rather quite the opposite. The Gardeners were the most famous family in Westeros, and the Lan…
