Tyria is a ruined city in Essos. It lies across the Smoking Sea from Oros and is connected by Valyrian road to the city of Valyria, which lies to the south of the island.[1]

History

Tyria was founded by the Valyrian Freehold. Although rich and glorious, it did not have self-rule and was instead governed by men and women sent from Valyria to rule in the name of the Freehold.[2]

The ruins of Tyria are still inhabited to some extent after the Doom of Valyria, although it is not clear whether by descendants of its original inhabitants. The few stories told of these latter-day dwellers tend towards the malign.[3]
