Jump to: navigation, search

Yi Ti is a nation in Essos located east of Qarth and the Bone Mountains and bordered by the Jade Sea to the south. Nearby islands in the Jade Sea are Leng and the Isle of Whips. North of Yi Ti are the Great Sand Sea, the Shrinking Sea, and the Bleeding Sea; a great river runs south from the Bleeding Sea through Yi Ti to the Jade Sea. Located east of Yi Ti are the Mountains of the Morn, the Shadow Lands, and Asshai.[1]



The land of Yi Ti has thick, green patchwork farmland and a verdant rainforest.[2] Rumors have it that basilisks roam the jungles of Yi Ti.[3] Known cities in Yi Ti include Yin and Jinqi, along the Jade Sea coast, and Tiqui further to the north near the Great Sand Sea. The city of Asabhad is located at the western boundary of Yi Ti near the Bone Mountains and the Jade Gates. There is a trade route from Asabhad to Yin along the coast of the Jade Sea.[1]

Yi Ti is ruled by a god-emperor, but true power may reside within the region's various princedoms. It has had various ancient capitals, including Tiqui.[4] The Lion of Night is a god in Yi Ti. One of their major exports is saffron.[5] Yi Ti is also known for its wine.[6]


Men from Yi Ti are bright-eyed and wear monkey-tail hats.[7] The people of northern Leng in the Jade Sea are descended from Yi Ti.[4]
