The Riverlands and the location of the Gods Eye

The Gods Eye is a large lake south of the Trident in the southern Riverlands. The great castle of Harrenhal and its town, Harrentown, sit astride its northern shore, while an unnamed town is along the southern shore.[1] At its center is a lone island, the Isle of Faces, which was where the Pact between the children of the forest and the First Men was created. The warm water of the Gods Eye is blue and green.[1] Among its feeder streams is the Rippledown Rill.[2] Black swans live in the vicinity.[3]

The Gods Eye feeds a river that flows south to the Blackwater Rush.[4][5] The holdfast of Briarwhite is south of the lake and east of the river.



During the Dance of the Dragons, the Battle by the Lakeshore was fought along the western shore of the Gods Eye, while the battle at the stony ridge occurred south of the lake. Princes Aemond and Daemon Targaryen and their dragons, Vhagar and Caraxes, fought to their mutual deaths above the Gods Eye.[6]

The setting sun made the tranquil surface of the water shimmer like a sheet of beaten copper. It was the biggest lake she had ever seen, with no hint of a far shore.[1]
