Dagger Lake is a large lake formed by the confluence of the rivers Rhoyne and Qhoyne in western Essos.[1] At Dagger Lake the Qhoyne comes rushing in, full of gold and amber from the Axe and pine-cones from the Forest of Qohor.[2] Northeast of Dagger Lake are the ruins of Ar Noy, while along its western banks are the Golden Fields.[3]

Dagger Lake is full of islands where pirates lurk in hidden caves and secret strongholds, such as Urho the Unwashed and Korra the Cruel on Hag's Teeth.[4]


The War on Dagger Lake was one of the Rhoynish Wars between the Rhoynar and the Valyrian Freehold.[5]

During the Century of Blood, Qohor and Norvos broke Volantene power on the Rhoyne in a battle involving fire galleys on Dagger Lake.[2]
