History

See also: Images of Isle of Faces

At the end of the Dawn Age, following many centuries of fighting between them, this island is where the First Men and the children of the forest signed the Pact ending their wars against each other. In celebration, every weirwood on the island was given a face, so that the gods would witness the pact. [2]

With the signing of the Pact, the order of the Green Men was formed, to tend the last remaining weirwoods in the south.[3]

During the Dance of the Dragons, Addam Velaryon was said to have landed on the Isle of Faces and taken counsel with the Green Men.[4]
