Descendant of Dunk?

There is speculation that Brienne of Tarth is a descendant of Ser Duncan the Tall.

Supporting Evidence

  • The author mentioned that A Feast for Crows would feature a descendant of Dunk.
  • In A Feast for Crows, Brienne recalls a shield she saw as a child in her father’s armory. Its description matches Dunk's own shield.
  • Both Dunk and Brienne are uncommonly tall and strong.
  • Author confirmed we will learn how Brienne descends from Dunk "eventually" at Balticon 2016.

The word uttered, previously unknown

The word she utters at her last scene in A Feast for Crows is "sword" (in response to the choice of "noose" or "sword")

Supporting Evidence

  • GRRM confirmed it during Miscon 2012. He also explained that her main motivation was sparing Podrick Payne's life.
