The Iron Islands and the location of Old Wyk

Old Wyk is one of the islands that make up the Iron Islands, located in Ironman's Bay and inhabited by the ironborn. It is home to the noble houses Stonehouse, Goodbrother of Shatterstone, and Drumm.[1] It is west of Great Wyk on the edge of the Sunset Sea.



The ironborn consider Old Wyk to be the holiest of all the Iron Islands. The Grey King slew a legendary sea dragon, Nagga, upon its shores, and it is the place where kingsmoots took place for thousand of years. It is on Old Wyk where the First Men found the Seastone Chair, the traditional throne of the Iron Islands.[1]

Windy hills and cruel black mountains make up much of Old Wyk, and Nagga's hill is located on it.[2]
