The Merchant's Melancholy Daughter is a performance play put on by mummers in Braavos.


In this play there is a scene where the fat merchant shats on the Sealord's head as he passes underneath in his gold-and-purple barge. Only in Braavos could something like that happen, it was said, and only in Braavos would Sealord and sailor alike howl with laughter to see it.

Izembaro loves to give the Sealord's speech from this play, part of which goes:

“here the last Titan yet stands, astride the stony shoulders of his brothers.”
