The Stormlands and the location of the kingswood


The kingswood is a large forest that lies across the Blackwater Rush from King's Landing. It is in the southern Crownlands and the northern Stormlands and is traversed by the kingsroad.[1] Originating from a narrow lake in the forest, the Wendwater is the largest river in the kingswood.[2] Felwood is located in the southern outskirts of the forest.[1]

The kingswood contains a private hunting area for the King of Westeros. However, some smallfolk live in the forest. Although it is rainy, the region is fertile enough.[3]
