The Crownlands and the location of Driftmark

Driftmark is an island west of Dragonstone in Blackwater Bay. The seat of House Velaryon in the Crownlands, it has a long point.[1] The Gullet separates Driftmark from Massey's Hook to the south.[2]

During the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen there were at least three settlements in Driftmark: High Tide, Hull, and Spicetown.[3]


When King Viserys I Targaryen brought his court to Driftmark for the funeral of of Ser Laenor Velaryon in 120AC, the number of dragons gathered on the island led Septon Eustace to call it the New Valyria.[4]

The dragon Sheepstealer was known for grabbing sheep from flocks in Blackwater Bay from Driftmark to as far as the Wendwater.[3]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Lord Corlys Velaryon, the Sea Snake, launched black ships from Hull and Spicetown to block access to Blackwater Bay. High Tide and Spicetown were burnt in the Battle in the Gullet, the latter so severely it was not rebuilt.[3]
