The Weeping Town is a market town in the stormlands. Lying on the southern shore of Cape Wrath, along the Sea of Dorne,[1] it has a thriving port which handles much of the stormlands' trade.[2] It contains a seat, possibly known as the Weeping Tower.[3][4] It is ruled by House Whitehead.[5]

The town has stout wooden walls, peaked roofs, and crooked alleys. It is large enough to support three inns: the Broken Shield, the Loon, and the Drunken Dornishman.[5]

History

It is known as the Weeping Town because it is where the corpse of Daeron I Targaryen was first brought after the king was murdered in Dorne,[2] remaining there for three days.[5]
