What to do when you want to add to this page?
  • Is the calculation necessary?
    • Several years of birth or death are specifically stated in the canon work. Is your character not in there? Then he/she is a candidate.
  • Make certain you always put in references when you add something.
  • When you add a calculation, add your results to the character's wiki-page.
  • Does your addition replace the first name underneath a navigation box? Go to the template page to adjust the navigation box, to keep the interlinking up to date.
  • You don't want to add, but you still think a character is missing in the list? Go here and share your thoughts!

Due to editing issues caused by the length of the calculations, the list is divided into four pages. Use the navigation box, or navigate here to page 1, page 3 or page 4. You are currently on page 2.


In the main series and novellas, George R.R. Martin does not state specifically in which year a character has been born or has died. This page lists the calculations to determine such years, years of birth mostly, but also years of death at times, as specific as is possible, for all characters for all this is possible. This information then can be used in articles and serves to give a more complete image of the world of A Song of Ice and Fire.

The Method: The calculations have been made with a few simple rules.

  • 1: A character, both male and female, will be at least 13 years old at the birth of his or her first born child. This age is chosen because of the marriages known in A Song of Ice and Fire (Maegor I got married at the age of 13, Princess Helaena Targaryen was 13 years old, Sansa Stark, though still 12 years old, would turn 13 in only a few days, placing her marriage in the year she would turn 13) and because of simple biology, looking at the fertility of both boys and girls.
  • 2: When discussing siblings, it is assumed that there will be more than 9 months in between the births. Though technically siblings can differ only 9 months in age, this would require the mother to become pregnant within days of having given birth. It is assumed that the mother was allowed a short period of recovery after having given birth, and thus that siblings will be born at least 1 year (12 months) apart. This is only when discussing full-blood siblings. Siblings with the same father, but with a different mother, won't have this issue.


The characters are listed alphabetically, using full names. Maesters (like Maester Aemon), will also be listed alphabetically under their first names, but not under their last names, since they set aside their family name upon becoming a maester. Their full names as they had received at birth will be behind their Maester name between parentheses. Names that belong to several characters (for example, the name Walder Frey) will be listed alphabetically, but will have their nickname listed after their birth name, so they can be distinguished.


For calculations on placings of events, see Calculations of Events.


Eddara Tallhart

Birth

Eddara was 9 years old in 299AC.[1][2]

  • 8 turning 9 in 299AC, placing her birth in 290AC
  • 9 turning 10 in 299AC, placing her birth in 289AC


No further specifications can be given. Eddara was thus born in either 289 AC or 290 AC.

Eddard Stark

Birth

Ned Stark is 35 years old in 298 AC[3]. That gives Ned two options:

  • 34 turning 35, placing his birth in 263AC
  • 35 turning 36, placing his birth in 262AC


In addition, Eddard Stark is known to haven been 18 years old in 281 AC, the Year of the False Spring,[4] giving Eddard the same options as above:

  • 17 turning 18, placing his birth in 263AC
  • 18 turning 19, placing his birth in 262AC


No further specifications can be given. Eddard was born in either 262 AC or 263 AC.

Death

Eddard Stark was still alive when the Battle of the Whispering Wood was being fought. This battle occured in 299AC (see War of the Five Kings (Battle of the Whispering Wood) and War of the Five Kings (Execution of Eddard Stark). Since Ned was still alive during this battle, his death occured after.

Eddard thus died in 299 AC

Edmund Blackwood

Birth

Edmund is 12 years old in 300AC.[5] This gives Edmund the following options:

  • 11 turning 12 in 300AC, placing his birth in 288AC
  • 12 turning 13 in 300AC, placing his birth in 287AC


No further specifications can be given. Edmund was thus born in either 287 AC or 288 AC.

Edmure Tully

Birth

Edmure is the youngest child of Hoster Tully. He is younger than both his sisters, Catelyn and Lysa. Lysa was younger than Catelyn, and was born in 266AC the earliest (see Lysa Tully). This means that Edmure, being younger than Lysa, cannot have been born before 267AC. 267AC is thus Edmure’s earliest possible year of birth.

In 282AC, Edmure was a squire to Brandon Stark in his duel against Petyr Baelish.[6] It is known that, while squire's are usually somewhat older, even boys as young as 5 or 6 can be a squire in certain occasions (with as example Duncan the Tall as the squire of Ser Arlan of Pennytree). This shows that Edmure would have been born no later than 277 AC (282 – 5 years of age = 274 AC).


No further specifications can be given. Edmure was thus born in or between 267 AC and 277 AC.


Note: In 299AC, upon seeing her brother, Catelyn Tully remarks how Edmure is still a young man. With Edmure being born in between 274 AC and 267 AC, he would be between the ages of 25 and 32 in 299 AC. Catelyn’s remark seems to push Edmure’s age closer to 25 than to 32 in 299 AC, though Edmure’s exact age cannot be said with certainty, since his sister Lysa, at the age of 33, is also still considered young.

Edric Dayne

Birth

Edric is guessed by Arya Stark to be 10 or 12 in 299 AC.[7] Edric admits that he is indeed 12 years old in 299 AC.[8] That gives Edric the following options:

  • 11 turning 12 in 299AC, placing his birth in 287AC
  • 12 turning 13 in 299AC, placing his birth in 286AC


In 300AC, Edric is still 12 years old.[9] That shows that Edric cannot have been 12 turning 13 in 299AC, eliminating option 286AC, and thus confirms that Edric was 11 turning 12 in 299AC, placing his birth in 287AC.


Edric was thus born in 287 AC.

Edric Storm

Birth

Edric Storm is said to be “around Bran’s age” in 298 AC[10], when Bran has already turned 8.[11] In 299 AC, Edric is said to have been seven or eight years old.[12]

Edric Storm was conceived during the wedding of Stannis Baratheon and Selyse Florent[13]. Since Shireen Baratheon was born during the marriage, Edric would thus be at least Shireens age, if not older. Shireen Baratheon was born in 289AC (see Shireen Baratheon). This means that Edric was born in 289AC the latest as well, if not earlier (it is unknown when Stannis and Selyse got married, and how many years into the marriage Shireen was conceived).


Devan Seaworth is older than Edric Storm.[14] Devan was born in either 287AC or 288AC (see Devan Seaworth). This means that the earliest that Edric could have been born, was the same year as Devan’s earliest option, but only later in the year. This would make 287AC the earliest that Edric could have been born.


Edric is stated to have been 12 years old in 299AC.[2] That would give him the following options:

  • 11 turning 12 in 299AC, placing his birth in 287AC
  • 12 turning 13 in 299AC, placing his birth in 286AC


Since Edric having been born in 286AC would make him older than Devan Seaworth, that option isn’t a possibility, and is thus eliminated. The only option that remains is 287AC.


Edric was thus born in 287 AC.

Edwyn Frey

Birth

Edwyns father Ryman Frey was born in either 246AC, 247AC or 248AC (see Ryman Frey). Ryman would have been at least 13 years old when Edwyn was born. With 246AC as the earliest possible year of birth for Ryman, Edwyn was born no earlier than 13 years later, in 259AC.

Edwyn himself was at least 13 years old when his daughter was born. His daughter Walda was born in either 290AC or 291AC (see Walda Frey). With 291AC as the last possible year of birth for Walda, Edwyn would have been born at least 13 years prior, in 278AC


No further specifications can be given. Edwyn Frey was thus born in or between 259 AC or 278 AC.

Elder Brother

Birth

Elder Brother is known to have been 44 years old in 300 AC.[15] That gives the following options:

  • 43 turning 44 in 300AC, placing his birth in 256AC
  • 44 turning 45 in 300AC, placing his birth in 255AC


No further specifications can be given. Elder Brother was born in either 255 AC or 256 AC.

Eldon Estermont

Birth

Eldon is roughly 70 years old in 300 AC,[16] which indicates he was roughly between the ages of 68 and 72. This places his birth in or between 228 AC and 232 AC.

Eleanor Mooton

Birth

Eleanor is 13 years old in 300AC.[9] That gives her the following options:

  • 12 turning 13 in 300AC, placing her birth in 287AC
  • 13 turning 14 in 300AC, placing her birth in 286AC


No further specifications can be given. Eleanor was thus born in either 286 AC or 287 AC.

Eleyna Westerling

Birth

Eleyna is near Sansa Starks age in 299 AC.[17] Sansa, at that time, is 12 years old, making Eleyna around 12 years old as well in 299AC. It is known that Eleyna is 12 years old in 299AC as well.[2] That gives her the following options:

  • 11 turning 12 in 299AC, placing her birth in 287AC
  • 12 turning 13 in 299AC, placing her birth in 286AC


Eleyna is still 12 years old in 300AC.[9] This eliminates the second option (with her birth in 286AC), leaving only the option of 287AC as Eleyna’s birth year.


Eleyna was thus born in 287 AC.

Elia Martell

Birth

Elia Martell was a year oldern than her brother Oberyn.[18] Doran Martell was 9 years old when his sister Elia was born, and has mentioned that their brother Oberyn was born 10 years after him.[19] That between Oberyn and Doran are exactly 10 years, shows that between Doran and Elia are exactly 9 years. Doran Martell was born in either 247AC or 248AC (see Doran Martell). This gives Elia the following options:

  • With Doran born in 247AC, Elia was born in 256AC
  • With Doran born in 248AC, Elia was born in 257AC


No further specifications can be given. Elia Martell was thus born in either 256 AC or 257 AC.

Death

Elia died during the Sack of King's Landing. The Sack of King's Landing occured in 283 AC (see Sack of King's Landing). Elia thus died in 283 AC.

Elia Sand

Birth

Elia Sand is mentioned to be 14 years old during 300 AC.[20] That leaves two options for Elia:

  • 13 turning 14 in 300AC, placing her birth in 286AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 300AC, placing her birth in 285AC


No further specifications can be given. Elia was thus born in either 285 AC or 286 AC.

Elinor Tyrell

Birth

Elinor is known to be close to Sansa Starks age.[21] Sansa Stark was born in 286 AC. This places Elinors birth roughly around 286 AC as well.

Ellendor

Birth

Ellendor was close to 90 year old when was chosen as Grandmaester. [22] He died a little less than a year later,[22] in either 258 AC or 259 AC (see below, under “death”). That means Ellendor was with certainty almost 90 years old (but not yet 90 years old), a year before, in either 257AC or 258AC. That gives him the following options (assuming that “nigh on 90” can be from 86 to 89):

  • 86 turning 87 in 257AC, placing his birth in 170AC
  • 86 turning 87 in 258AC, placing his birth in 171AC
  • 87 turning 88 in 257AC, placing his birth in 169AC
  • 87 turning 88 in 258AC, placing his birth in 170AC
  • 88 turning 89 in 257AC, placing his birth in 168AC
  • 88 turning 89 in 258AC, placing his birth in 169AC
  • 89 turning 90 in 257AC, placing his birth in 167AC
  • 89 turning 90 in 258AC, placing his birth in 168AC


No further specifications can be given. Ellendor was thus born in or between 167 AC and 171 AC.

Death

Ellendor died within a year of being raised to the office, which caused Merion to be named to the office of Grandmaester. Merion was send to King’s Landing, but he died on the journey over there. That was when Pycelle was raised, in 259AC.[22] With Pycelle having started in 259AC, that means that Merion died in 259AC. Merion died on the way to King’s Landing, which means he was named Grandmaester either in 259AC or in 258AC (it is unknown how long the journey takes exactly, or in which part of the year this all occurred).This means that Ellendor died in either 258 AC or 259 AC.

Elmar Frey

Birth

Elmar was 9 years old in both 299AC and 300AC.[1][2][9][23] Being 9 years old in both 299AC and 300AC means Elmar was 8 turning 9 in 299 AC, and 9 turning 10 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 290 AC.

Elwood Meadows

Birth

Elwood Meadows is known to have been 20 years old in 299 AC.[24] That gives Elwood the following two options:

  • 19 turning 20 in 299AC, placing his birth in 279AC
  • 20 turning 21 in 299AC, placing his birth in 278AC


No further specifications can be given. Elwood was thus born in either 278 AC or 279 AC.

Elyana Vypren

Birth

Elyana was at least 13 years old when her son Rickard was born. Rickard was born in 295AC (see Rickard Wylde), placing Elyana's last possible moment of birth in 282AC.

Elyana's mother Lythene was born in 251AC the earliest (see Lythene Frey). Lythene would have been at least 13 years old when Elyana, her eldest child, was born, placing Elyana’s earliest possible moment of birth in 264AC


Elyana was thus born in or between 264 AC and 282 AC.

Emberlei Frey

Birth

Emberlei has been mentioned to have been 2 years old in 299 AC[1][2] and 3 years old in 300 AC.[9] Being 2 years old in 299 AC and 3 years old in 300 AC, gives the following options:

  • 1 turning 2 in 299AC, and 2 turning 3 in 300AC, placing her birth in 297AC
  • 2 turning 3 in 299AC, and 3 turning 4 in 300AC, placing her birth in 296AC


No further specifications can be given. Emberlei was born in either 296 AC or 297 AC.

Emma

Birth

Emma is at least 40 years old in 300 AC.[25] Being at least 40 years old in 300AC would place her birth no later than 260AC.


No further specifications can be given. Emma was thus born in 260 AC or earlier.

Emmon Frey

Birth

Emmon Frey was 14 years old when Genna Lannister was 7 and Tywin Lannister was 10.[26] This occurred in 253AC (see Tywin Lannister and Genna Lannister). With Emmon being 14 years old in 253AC, this leaves the following options:

  • 13 turning 14 in 253AC, placing his birth in 239AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 253AC, placing his birth in 238AC


Emmon is 60 years old in 300 AC.[26] This gives the following options:

  • 59 turning 60 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 240AC
  • 60 turning 61 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 239AC


The only overlapping year is 239AC. This shows that Emmon was born in 239AC, and that he will be turning 61 in 300 AC. It also shows that Emmon had turned 14 the year he was betrothed to Genna Lannister.

Eon Hunter

Birth

Eon Hunter is known to have been older than Jon Arryn.[6] Jon Arryn was born in 221 AC the latest, roughly speaking (see Jon Arryn), showing that Eon Hunter was born at least one year before, meaning he was born in 220 AC or before, roughly.

Erena Glover

Birth

Erena was 1 year old in 299AC.[1][2] That gives her the following options:

  • 0 turning 1 in 299AC, placing her birth in 298AC
  • 1 turning 2 in 299AC, placing her birth in 297AC


No further specifications can be given. Erena was thus born in either 297 AC or 298 AC.

Erik Ironmaker

Birth

Erik is mentioned to be 88 years old in 300 AC.[27] This gives the following options:

  • 87 turning 88 in 300AC, placing his birth in 212AC
  • 88 turning 89 in 300AC, placing his birth in 211AC


No further specification can be given. Erik was born in either 211 AC or 212 AC.

Ermesande Hayford

Birth

Ermesande was barely a year old when she married Tyrek Lannister mid 299 AC.[28] This places Ermesande’s birth in 298 AC.



Falia Flowers

Birth

Falia Flowers is 17 or 18 years old in 300 AC.[29] That gives her the following options:

  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC
  • 17 turning 18 in 300AC, placing her birth in 282AC
  • 18 turning 19 in 300AC, placing her birth in 281AC


No further specifications can be given. Falia was born in either 281 AC, 282 AC or 283 AC.

Falyse Stokeworth

Birth

Falyse Stokeworth is older than her sister Lollys by at least one year. Lollys was born in 266 AC the latest (see Lollys Stokeworth), placing Falyse’s birth no later than 265 AC.


Falyse was thus born in 265 AC or before.


Note: Since Falyse has been married for roughly 10 years by 300AC, it seems unlikely that she was born much earlier than 265AC. If Falyse was born in 265AC, she would have been 25 years old when she married around 290AC. Though the 10 years of Falyse's marriage is a rough indication (she could have been married for 12 years in reality, for example), it does show that Falyse got married around her early twenties at the earliest. If Falyse was born many years before 265AC, that would push her age closer to 30 when she got married for the first time, something which, though possible, seems rather unlikely. Concluded can be that Falyse won't have been born that many years before 265AC, though a specific birth year, or a specific time frame, cannot be given.



Galazza Galare

Birth

Galazza Galare is at least 20 years older than Barristan Selmy is in 300AC.[30] Barristan was born in 237AC (see Barristan Selmy), meaning that the Green Grace was born roughly 20 years before, placing her birth roughly in 217 AC.

Galladon of Tarth

Birth

Galladon of Tarth was 8 when Brienne of Tarth was 4 years old.[15] Brienne was born in 280 AC (see Brienne of Tarth). That means Brienne was 4 years old in both 284 AC (3 turning 4) and 285 AC (4 turning 5). This gives Galladon the following options:

  • 7 turning 8 in 284AC, placing his birth in 276AC
  • 8 turning 9 in 284AC, placing his birth in 275AC
  • 7 turning 8 in 285AC, placing his birth in 277AC
  • 8 turning 9 in 285AC, placing his birth in 276AC


No further specifications can be given. Galladon was born in either 275 AC, 276 AC or 277 AC.

Death

Galladon died when he was 8 years old.[15] Galladon's possible birth years give the following options for him having been 8 years old:

  • If born in 275AC
    • 7 turning 8 in 283AC
    • 8 turning 9 in 284AC
  • If born in 276AC
    • 7 turning 8 in 284AC
    • 8 turning 9 in 285AC
  • If born in 277AC
    • 7 turning 8 in 285AC
    • 8 turning 9 in 286AC

When Galladon died, his sister, Brienne, was 4 years old. Brienne was born in 280AC (see Brienne of Tarth). Brienne was thus 4 years old in either 284AC (3 turning 4) or 285AC (4 turning 5). This eliminates the years 283AC and 285AC as possible years of death for Galladon, as his sister cannot have been 4 years old during those 2 years.


No further specification can be given. Galladon thus died in either 284 AC or 285 AC.

Gared

Birth

Gared has been on the Wall for 40 years, in 297AC (see 297AC), meaning he joined in 257AC. It is mentioned he has been a man and a boy during those 40 years.[31] Gared, in 297AC, was past 50,[31] meaning he was at least 51 years old, and thus born in 246AC or before.

Gared was near as old as Lord Commander Jeor Mormont[32], who was born in 230AC (see Jeor Mormont). This means that Gared was almost as old as Jeor, but did not have the same age, meaning he was born in 231AC or later.


No further specifications can be given. Gared was thus born in or between 231 AC and 246 AC.

Death

In 298 AC, Sansa Stark, during the Tourney of the Hand, remembers how Ser Waymar Royce had visited Winterfell on his way to the Wall. The Tourney of the Hand takes place minimally 6 months into 298 AC (Joffrey’s nameday, two weeks later Jon Arryn dies, a 2 month travel to Winterfell, a minimum of 1 month stay, traveling back for 2 months, having been at King’s Landing for some time when the Tourney begins), so when Sansa remembers how Royce visited 2 years ago, she is thinking about an event roughly halfway through 296AC.

During the ranging, Will remarks how Ser Waymar has not yet been on the Wall for half a year. With Waymar being at Winterfell halfway through 296AC, and with the journey from Winterfell to Castle Black having taken at least one month, but most likely more, since there are several castles in between Winterfell and the Wall, Waymar would have been at the Wall for close to half a year in early 297AC.

Gared died during the ranging where Waymar had not yet been at the Wall for half a year (which suggests that he was close to being at the Wall for half a year, placing the ranging in early 297AC), and thus died in 297 AC.

Garlan Tyrell

Birth

Garlan is noted to be 5 years older than his brother Loras.[33] Loras Tyrell was born in 282 AC (see Loras Tyrell). With Garlan being 5 years older than Loras, Garlan was born in 277 AC

Gawen Glover

Birth

Gawen Glover was 3 years old in 299AC,[1] and 4 years old in 300AC.[34] That gives him the following options:

  • 3 turning 4 in 300AC, placing his birth in 296AC
  • 4 turning 5 in 300AC, placing his birth in 295AC


No further specifications can be given. Gawen was born in either 295 AC or 296 AC

Gawen Swann

Gawen Swann was older than Arlan of Pennytree in 209AC.[35] Arlan of Pennytree was born in or between 149AC and 153AC (see Arlan of Pennytree). This means that Gawen Swann was born in 152 AC or before. No further specifications can be given.


Note: That Duncan the Tall can tell that Gawen is older than Arlan from a distance, suggests that Gawen is at least several years older.

Gendry

Birth

Gendry is mentioned in 299AC to be 5 years older than Arya Stark, who, at that time, is 10 years old. This makes Gendry 15 in 299AC, giving him the following options:

  • 14 turning 15 in 299AC, placing his birth in 284AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 299AC, placing his birth in 283AC


Since the War of the Usurper lasted from 282AC until 283AC, and Robert Baratheon, Gendry’s father, was nowhere near King's Landing, Gendry’s place of birth,[36] until the very end of the Rebellion in 283AC, Gendry cannot have been conceived in 282AC, and thus he cannot have been born in 283AC (the Rebellion ended roughly halfway through the year, meaning that Gendry cannot have been conceived and born in the same year). This eliminates the option of 283AC, and confirms that Gendry was thus born in 284 AC.

Genna Lannister

Birth

Genna Lannister was 7 years old when she was betrothed to Emmon Frey, who was 14 at the time. Emmon is 60 years old in 300 AC.[26] For Emmon, this gives the following possibilities:

  • 59 turning 60 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 240AC
    • This means Emmon was 14 years old in 254AC (13 turning 14) and 255AC (14 turning 15)
  • 60 turning 61 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 239AC
    • This means Emmon was 14 years old during 253AC (13 turning 14) and 254AC (14 turning 15)


Emmon thus could have been 14 in three different years: 253AC, 254AC and 255AC. For Genna, this creates the following options:

  • She was 7 when Emmon was 14 in 253AC
    • 6 turning 7 in 253AC, placing her birth in 246AC
    • 7 turning 8 in 253AC, placing her birth in 245AC
  • She was 7 when Emmon was 14 in 254 AC
    • 6 turning 7 in 254AC, placing her birth in 247AC
    • 7 turning 8 in 254AC, placing her birth in 246AC
  • She was 7 when Emmon was 14 in 255 AC
    • 6 turning 7 in 255AC, placing her birth in 248AC
    • 7 turning 8 in 255AC, placing her birth in 247AC

This leaves the options of being born in 245AC, 246AC, 247AC and 248AC for Genna.


During these same events, Genna’s brother Tywin was 10 years old. Tywin was born in 242AC (see Tywin Lannister). Being born in 242AC leaves the following options for Tywin being 10:

  • 9 turning 10 in 252AC
  • 10 turning 11 in 253AC


This shows that the only moment when Tywin was 10 while Genna was 7 and Emmon 14, happened in 253AC. Therefore, Genna was 7 years old in 253AC, showing she was either 6 turning 7, placing her birth in 246AC, or 7 turning 8, placing her birth in 245AC.


No further specifications can be given. Genna was thus born in either 245 AC or 246 AC.


Note: Kevan Lannister was 55 years old in 300 AC,[37] placing his birth in either 245 AC or 244 AC. Kevan and Genna will be at least one year apart in age. About neither can multiple specifications be given, which means that for both 2 options will remain until more information is given about either one of them.

This does mean that if Kevan was born in 245 AC, Genna will have been born in 246 AC. If Kevan was born in 244 AC, both options remain open for Genna.

Geremy Frey

Birth

Geremy Frey was born after Merrett Frey, and before Raymund Frey. Merrett Frey was born in 262AC (see Merrett Frey). Merrett, Geremy and Raymund were all children of Amarei Crakehall, Lord Walder Frey’s third wife. According to Walder Frey, Amarei died before Catelyn Tully was born. Catelyn Tully was born in 264AC (see Catelyn Tully), making 264AC the last possible moment for Amarei to have died, and thus to have given birth.

Amarei gave birth to Merrett Frey in 262AC, and Geremy and Raymund are not stated to have been twins, it can be assumed they were born a year apart.

With Geremy having been born at least one year after Merrett, who was born in 262AC, and at least one year before Raymund, and with only 2 years (263AC and 264AC) remaining until Amarei dies, Geremy can only have been born in 263 AC.

Death

The first reference to Geremy's death occurs in 299AC.[1] Since it is not stated how long Geremy has been dead, 299AC is thus the first possible year of death for Geremy, theoretically.

Geremy's youngest child is Cynthea Frey, who was born in 290AC (see Cynthea Frey). This means that Cynthea's conception could have taken place in 289AC the earliest. Since Geremy would only need to have been alive during the conception, and not the actual birth, the year 289AC is the first possible year for Geremy to have died.

Geremy thus died in or between 289 AC and 299 AC.

Gerold Dayne

Birth

Gerold Dayne is in his late twenties,[38] so in or between the ages of 26 and 29. Gerold is introduced in 300 AC. Being 26-29 in 300 AC gives him the following options:

  • 25 turning 26 in 300AC, placing his birth in 274AC
  • 26 turning 27 in 300AC, placing his birth in 273AC
  • 27 turning 28 in 300AC, placing his birth in 272AC
  • 28 turning 29 in 300AC, placing his birth in 271AC
  • 29 turning 30 in 300AC, placing his birth in 270AC


No further specifications can be given. Concluded can be that Gerold was born in or between 270 AC and 274 AC.

Gerris Drinkwater

Birth

Gerris Drinkwater is 6 years older than Quentyn Martell,[39] who was born in 281AC (see Quentyn Martell). This places Gerris' birth in 275 AC.

Gilly

Birth

Gilly is judged to be 15 or 16 in 299 AC.[40] This gives Gilly the following options:

  • 14 turning 15 in 299AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 299AC, placing her birth in 283AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 299AC, placing her birth in 282AC


No further specifications can be given. Gilly was born in either 282 AC, 283 AC or 284 AC

Gilwood Hunter

Birth

Gilwoods age is judged to have been closer to 50 than to 40 in 300 AC.[41] Being closer to 50 than to 40 would make Gilwood 46 years old at least. It also means that he has not yet turned 50, though it is possible he will be turning 50 later in the year. This gives Gilwood the following options:

  • 45 turning 46 in 300AC, placing his birth in 254AC
  • 46 turning 47 in 300AC, placing his birth in 253AC
  • 47 turning 48 in 300AC, placing his birth in 252AC
  • 48 turning 49 in 300AC, placing his birth in 251AC
  • 49 turning 50 in 300AC, placing his birth in 250AC

No further specifications can be given. Gilwood was thus born in or between in or between 250 AC and 254 AC.

Girl General

Birth

The Girl General cannot be more than 16 years old in 300 AC, according to Quentyn Martell.[42] That gives her the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 6 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC


No further specifications can be given. The Girl General was born in either 283 AC or 284 AC.

Glendon Ball

Birth

Glendon was 16, 17 or 18 years old in 212AC. Glendon’s father, Quentyn Ball, died before Glendon was born. Quentyn Ball died in 196AC. Being either 16, 17 or 18 years old in 212AC gives the following options:

  • 15 turning 16, placing his birth in 196AC
  • 16 turning 17, placing his birth in 195AC
  • 17 turning 18, placing his birth in 194AC
  • 18 turning 19, placing his birth in 193AC


Glendons father died in 196AC, before Glendon’s birth. This means that Glendon’s first possible moment of birth is also 196AC. This eliminates the three options of 195AC, 194AC and 193AC, thereby confirming that Glendon was born in 196 AC.

Glendon Goode

Birth

Glendon was 20 years old in 130AC. [43] That gives him the following options:

  • 19 turning 20 in 130AC, placing his birth in 110AC
  • 20 turning 21 in 130AC, placing his birth in 109AC


No further specifications can be given. Glendon was thus born in either 109 AC or 110 AC.

Gormond Goodbrother

Birth

Gormond is judged to be no older than 16 in 299 AC.[44] Being 16 years old in 299AC gives him the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 299AC, placing his birth in 283AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 299AC, placing his birth in 282AC


No further specifications can be given. Gormond was born in either 282 AC or 283 AC.

Gregor Clegane

Birth

Gregor Clegane was 17 years old in 283AC.[10] Being 17 in 283AC gives the following options:

  • 16 turning 17, placing his birth in 266AC
  • 17 turning 18, placing his birth in 265AC


No further information about Gregor is known. Gregor was thus born in either 265 AC or 266 AC.

Grenn

Birth

Grenn was 16 years old in 298 AC.[45] Being 16 in 298 AC gives the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 298AC, placing his birth in 282AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 298AC, placing his birth in 281AC


No further specification can be given about Grenn. He was born in either 281 AC or 282 AC.

Gulian Swann

Birth

Gulian is “well past 40” in 300 AC. [46] That gives him the minimum age of 41 in 300AC, placing his birth in 259 AC or later. No further specifications can be given.


Note: The term “well past” suggests that Gulians actual year of birth is somewhat earlier than 259AC, but it cannot be stated exactly how much.

Guyard Morrigen

Birth

Guyard was said to have been a babe during the Siege of Storm’s End during Robert’s Rebellion.[47] The Siege of Storm’s End during Robert’s Rebellion began in 282 AC and ended in 283 AC. Since Rickon Stark is still called a babe at the age of 4,[48], Guyard could have been up to 4 years old during the Siege.

Being 4 years old during 283AC, means that Guyard could potentially have been 4 turning 5 in 283AC, placing his birth in 278AC. Guyard won’t have been born any earlier.

Guyard would also have been a babe during the Siege if he had been born during the Siege. Since the Siege ended in 283AC, this is the latest he could have been born.


Guyard was thus born in or between 278 AC and 283 AC.

Gwayne Hightower

Birth

Gwayne is at least one year younger than his older sister Alicent.[49] Alicent was born in either 87 AC or 88 AC (see Alicent Hightower). That means that Alicent was born in 87 the earliest, meaning that Gwayne was born in 88AC or later.

Gwayne had been knighted by 111AC. [49] With the minimum age of 15[50], Gwayne would not have been younger than 14 turning 15 in 111AC, giving him the minimum birth year of 96AC.


No further specifications can be given. Gwayne was thus born in or between 88 AC and 96 AC.

Gwyneth Yronwood

Birth

Gwyneth is 12 years old in 300 AC.[39] That gives her the following options:

  • 11 turning 12 in 300AC, placing her birth in 288AC
  • 12 turning 13 in 300AC, placing her birth in 287AC


No further specifications can be given. Gwyneth was born in either 287 AC or 288 AC.



Hagen's daughter

Birth

Hagen's daughter is 17 years old in 300 AC.[34] That gives her the following options:

  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC
  • 17 turning 18 in 300AC, placing her birth in 282AC


No further specifics can be given. She was born in either 282 AC or 283 AC.

Halder

Birth

Halder is 16 years old in 298 AC.[51] That gives the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 298 AC, placing his birth in 282AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 298 AC, placing his birth in 281AC


No further specification can be given. Halder was born in either 281 AC or 282 AC.

Harwin (Winterfell)

Birth

Harwin heard the tale of Eddard Stark and Ashara Dayne when he was no older than 10.[8] Eddard Stark and Ashara Dayne met each other in 281 AC. That means this year is the first time Harwin could have heard about it. This makes Harwins earliest year of birth 271 AC. Harwin was thus born in 271 AC or later.

Harwin Strong

Birth

Harwin had been knighted by 105AC. [49] With the minimum age of 15[50], Harwin would have been 14 turning 15 in 105AC the youngest. This would place his birth in 90AC. It is possible, however, that Harwin had been older ib 105AC.


No further specifications can be given. Harwin was thus born in either 90 AC or before.

Harys Haigh

Birth

Harys would have been at least 13 years old when his son Walder had been born. Walder was born in 295AC the latest (see Walder Haigh), meaning that Harys was born at least 13 years prior, in 282AC.

Harys was the eldest child of Perriane Frey. Perriane was born in 241AC the earliest (see Perriane Frey), meaning that Harys was born the earliest 13 years later, in 254AC.


Harys was thus born in or between 254 AC and 282 AC.

Hazzea

Birth

Hazzea was 4 years old in 300 AC.[52] That gives her the following options:

  • 3 turning 4 in 300AC, placing her birth in 296AC
  • 4 turning 5 in 300AC, placing her birth in 295AC


No further specifications can be given. Hazzea was born in either 295 AC or 296 AC.

Helicent Uffering

Birth

Duncan the Tall judged Helicent to be about 40 years old in 211AC.[53] This would place Helicents birth around 171 AC.

Henly (Old)

Birth

Henly is well past seventy in 299 AC.[54] Being “well past seventy” in 299AC would place Henly’s birth “well past” 229 AC. The description of Henly’s age suggests that he has not yet turned 80. Henly could thus be anything between 71 and 79, placing his birth in or between 220 AC and 228 AC.


Note: “Well past seventy” would most likely mean that Henly is not 71, or 72, which is both close to seventy. However, without any specifications on that, it cannot be said with certainty how far from 70 Henly is, thus, the minimum of an age of 71 is taken.

Henly (Young)

Birth

Henly is well past fifty in 299 AC.[54] Being “well past fifty” in 299AC would place Henly’s birth “well past” 249 AC. The description of Henly’s age suggests that he has not yet turned 60. Henly could thus be anything between 51 and 59, placing his birth in or between 240 AC and 248 AC.


Note: “Well past fifty” would most likely mean that Henly is not 51, or 52, which is both close to fifty. However, without any specifications on that, it cannot be said with certainty how far from 50 Henly is, thus, the minimum of an age of 51 is taken.

Hobert Hightower

Birth

Hobert was 60 years old in 130AC. [43] That gives him the following options:

  • 59 turning 60 in 130AC, placing his birth in 70AC
  • 60 turning 61 in 130AC, placing his birth in 69AC


No further specifications can be given. Hobert was thus born in either 69 AC or 70 AC.

Holly

Birth

Holly is judged to be 15 or 16 years old in 300AC.[55] This gives Holly the following options:

  • 14 turning 15 in 300AC, placing her birth in 285AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC


No further specifications can be given. Holly was thus born in either 283 AC, 284 AC or 285 AC.

Hosteen Frey

Birth

Hosteen is younger than his brother Luceon by at least one year. Luceon was born the earliest in 249AC (see Luceon (Frey)), meaning that Hosteens earliest possible year of birth is 250AC.

Hosteen is older than his younger sister Lythene by at least one year. Lythene was born in 259AC the latest (see Lythene Frey), meaning that Hosteen was born no later than one year before, in 258AC.


Hosteen Frey is described to have been twice as old as Loras Tyrell in early 298 AC.[56] Ser Loras was born in 282AC (see Loras Tyrell), and would have been 16 or 15 during the tourney, where he unhorsed Hosteen. Being exactly twice as old as 15 or 16 would make Hosteen 30 or 32 years old in early 298 AC. Yet, Lord Walder doesn’t mention that he is being specific, giving Hosteen a range.

Looking at Hosteens possibilities (in or between 250AC and 258AC), it seems that Hosteen was between the ages of 40 and 48. With Loras Tyrell’s age in mind, this quote from Lord Walder would suggest that Hosteens is closer to 40 than to 48.


Hosteen was thus born in or between 250 AC and 258 AC, though most likely closer to 258AC than 250AC. More specifications cannot be given.

Hostella Frey

Birth

Hostella Frey was not yet born in late 299 AC, but has been born by early 300 AC.[9] No further specification can be given. Hostella was born either late 299 AC, or early 300 AC.

Hoster Blackwood

Birth

Hoster is 16 years old in 300AC.[5] This gives Hoster the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing his birth in 284AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing his birth in 283AC


No further specifications can be given. Hoster was born in either 283 AC or 284 AC

Hoster Frey

Birth

Hoster has been mentioned to have been 12 years old in 299 AC[1][2] and in 300 AC.[9] Being 12 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means he was 11 turning 12 in 299 AC, and 12 turning 13 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 287AC.


Hoster was thus born in 287 AC

Hoster Tully

Birth

Hoster Tully was 5 years older than his brother Brynden.[57] Brynden was born in or between 242AC and 246AC (see Brynden Tully). This would place Hosters birth in or between 237 AC and 241 AC.


Note: This aligns with the Lords Tully of the past generations. Lord Walder Frey, born in 208 AC, has lived through 5 Lords Tully’s of Riverrun.[58] Lord Medgar Tully has died between 209 AC and 211 AC,[35][53] and that his heir, an unnamed Lord Tully, was a boy of 8 in 211 AC,[53] placing his birth in either 202 AC or 203 AC , depending on whether he had turned 8, or was 8 turning 9 that year. This unnamed Lord Tully would be Lord #2 that was Lord of Riverrun whilst Walder Frey lived. It is known Edmure Tully is #5,[58] so Hoster Tully would be #4, meaning that the unnamed Lord Tully mentioned in the Hedge Knight and the Mystery Knight was Hosters grandfather. This means that there’s still one Lord Tully in between, Lord #3. With Lord #2 born in either 202 AC or 203 AC, and with Lord #4 born in or between 237 AC and 241 AC, that leaves a gap of 34 to 39 years, giving an average age of 17 to 19,5 years for Lord # 3 to have his first child. Seeing as how this age gap seems to be a normal age for a Westerosi Lord to have his first child, Hosters’ possible birth years seems a perfect fit.

Hother Umber

Birth

Hother had been send to Oldtown, roughly 50 years prior to 300 AC. That put’s Hothers age in 300 AC at at least 59, since the Citadel accepts students as young as 9 years old.[59] This would place Hothers birth no later than 241 AC. It is unknown how old Hother actually was when he went to the Citadel. No further specifications can be given. A minimum year thus cannot be stated.


Hother was born in 241 AC or before.

Humfrey Wagstaff

Birth

Humfrey was 65 years old when Brienne of Tarth was 16.[60] Brienne was born in 280 AC (see Brienne of Tarth). This would make Brienne 16 years old in both 296 AC and 297 AC. That gives Humfrey the following options:

  • 64 turning 65 in 296AC, placing his birth in 231AC
  • 65 turning 66 in 296AC, placing his birth in 230AC
  • 64 turning 65 in 297AC, placing his birth in 232AC
  • 65 turning 66 in 297AC, placing his birth in 231AC


No further specifications can be given. Humfrey was thus born in either 230 AC, 231 AC or 232 AC.



Illifer

Birth

Illifer is described as having been at least 60 years old in 300 AC.[61] This would place Illifer’s birth in 240 AC or before.

Irri

Birth

Irri is 15 years old in 299AC.[2]That gives her the following options:

  • 14 turning 15 in 299AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 299AC, placing her birth in 283AC


In 300Ac, Irri was 16 years old.[9] That gives her the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC

No further specifications can be given. Irri was thus born in either 283 AC or 284 AC.



Jaehaerys I Targaryen

Birth

Jaehaerys ascended the Iron Throne in 48AC at the age of 14. He died in 103AC at the age of 69.[49][62] That gives Jaehaerys the following options:

  • 13 turning 14 in 48AC, placing his birth in 34AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 48AC, placing his birth in 33AC


In addition:

  • 68 turning 69 in 103AC, placing his birth in 34AC
  • 69 turning 70 in 103AC, placing his birth in 33AC

No further specifications can be given. Jaehaerys was thus born in either 33 AC or 34 AC.

Jaehaerys II Targaryen

Birth

Jaehaerys Targaryen was 39 years old when he died in 262AC.[63] This gives Jaehaerys the following options:

  • 38 turning 39 in 262AC, placing his birth in 223AC
  • 39 turning 40 in 262AC, placing his birth in 222AC


No further specifications can be given. Jaehaerys was born in either 222 AC or 223 AC.

Jaime Frey

Birth

In late 299 AC, Jaime has not yet been born. In early 300 AC, Jaime has been born. No specifications can be given, meaning he was born either in late 299 AC, or early 300 AC.

Jaime Lannister

Birth

Eddard Stark was 35 years old in early 298 AC, leaving two options for his nameday:

  • 34 turning 35 in 298AC, placing his birth in 263AC
  • 35 turning 36 in 298AC, placing his birth in 262AC

When Ned was 18 (Tourney at Harrenhal), Jaime Lannister was 15.[64][46] There are a few possible moment when Ned could have been 18:

  • If born in 262AC
    • 17 turning 18 in 280AC
  • 18 turning 19 in 281AC
  • If born in 263CA
    • 17 turning 18 in 281AC
    • 18 turning 19 in 282AC


This means that there are a few possible years in which Jaime could have been 15 whilst Ned was 18:

  • 14 turning 15 in 280AC, placing his birth in 265AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 280AC, placing his birth in 264AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 281AC, placing his birth in 266AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 281AC, placing his birth in 265AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 282AC, placing his birth in 267AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 282AC, placing his birth in 266AC

So Jaime’s birth falls in either 264AC, 265AC, 266AC or 267AC.


It is also known that Robert’s Rebellion ended in 283AC.[23] Jaime, at this point, was 17 years old.[65] This gives the following options:

  • 16 turning 17 in 283AC, placing his birth in 266AC
  • 17 turning 18 in 283AC, placing his birth in 265AC

This cuts away two of the four options found above. The only two possibilities left (with Jaime being 17 in 283AC and with Jaime being 15 when Ned is 18) are that Jaime was born in either 266AC or 265AC.


After the Battle of the Blackwater, Tyrion remarks to himself that it has been 18 years since Jaime joined the Kingsguard.[66] We know these of Tyrions musings happened in the year 299AC. So in 299AC, it has been 18 years since Jaime joined the Kingsguard. However, in the year 300AC, Jaime remarks to himself that the Kingsguard cell that had been his during all his years of service, had been his for 18 years.[46]

So both brothers remark that Jaime joined the Kingsguard 18 years prior, only one does so in 299AC, and the other does so in 300AC. In a land where they don’t seem to be working with dates as is done in the real world (naming the months, numbering the days etc.), it seems more logical that both brothers were thinking about the age Jaime had when making the remark, and the age Jaime had while joining the Kingsguard. Even though the remarks aren’t made that far apart (only a few months at maximum), it does involve the changing of the year. The fact that it has been 18 years since Jaime was 15 in 299AC, and that it has also been 18 years that Jaime has been 15 in 300AC, shows us that Tyrion makes the remark after Jaime’s nameday that year, and that Jaime makes his remark before Jaime’s nameday that year. This leaves only one option:

  • With it having been 18 years in 299AC since Jaime joined the Kingsguard at the age of 15, and with Jaime’s nameday at that point in time in 299AC already having passed, Jaime was 33 years old at the time of the remark. He would have been 32 turning 33 in 299AC.

With it having been 18 years in 300AC since Jaime joined the Kingsguard at the age of 15, and with Jaime’s nameday still to come at that point in time in 300AC, Jaime was still 33 years old at the time of the remark. He would have been 33 turning 34 in 300AC.


This means that Jaime was born in 266 AC, having been 33 years old in both 299AC and 300AC.


In addition to all this, Ran has confirmed that in Feast, Jaime was 34 years old with a certainty of 99,5%.

Jammos Frey

Birth

Jammos Frey is younger than his brother Lothar Frey by at least one year. Lothar was born no earlier than 265AC (see Lothar Frey), meaning that 266AC is the earliest that Jammos could have been born.

Jammos Frey is older than his brother Whalen Frey by at least one year. The last possible year of birth of Whalen is 268AC (see Whalen Frey), making Jammos' last possible year of birth one year before, in 267AC.


No further specifications can be given. Jammos Frey was thus born in either 266 AC or 267 AC.

Janei Lannister

Birth

Janei is 2 years old in 299AC.[2] She’s 3 years old in 300AC.[9] That gives her the following options:

  • 1 turning 2 in 299AC, and 2 turning 3 in 300AC, placing her birth in 297AC
  • 2 turning 3 in 299AC, and 3 turning 4 in 300AC, placing her birth in 296AC


No further specifications can be given. Janei was thus born in either 296 AC or 297 AC.

Janos Slynt

Birth

Janos Slynt was 40 years old at the most in 300 AC, no older.[67] Being maximally 40 years old in 300AC would place Janos’ birth no earlier than 260 AC.

Janos has 4 children. His youngest son, Danos, is a page.[2] Children become pages from the age of 6 at the youngest.[68]. Danos has two elder brothers, Mattos and Jothos, who are both squires. Mattos, as the eldest of the three boys, would be at least two years older than Danos, and thus have the minimum age of 8. Janos also has a daughter, but it is unknown how old she is, and whether she was born before Mattos, or after.

With Janos’ eldest son at the minimum age of 8 in 299 AC, the boy would have been born in 291 AC the latest. Janos would have been at least 13 years old at the birth of his firstborn child, which would place his birth no later than 13 years prior to 291AC, thus in 278AC.


No further specifications can be given. Janos Slynt was thus born in or between 260 AC and 278 AC, though, since Janos' age is judged to be "40 or younger", it seems to be suggested that Janos' birth took place closer to 260AC than to 278AC.

Jared Frey

Birth

Jared is younger than his sister Perianne by at least one year. Perriane was born the earliest in 241AC (see Perriane Frey), meaning that Jareds earliest possible year of birth is 242AC.

Jared is older than his younger brother Luceon by at least one year. Luceon was born in 257AC the latest (see Luceon (Frey)), meaning that Luceon was born no later than one year before, in 256AC.


Jared was thus born in or between 242 AC and 256 AC


Further specifications can be given: Jared is said to have been “a stooped man of fifty years” in early 299 AC.[56] This gives Jared the following options:

  • 49 turning 50 in 299 AC, placing his birth in 249AC
  • 50 turning 51 in 299 AC, placing his birth in 248AC


Jared was thus born in either 248 AC or 249 AC.

Jax

Birth

Jax is well past 40 in 300AC, with sons and grandsons of his own.[69] That places his birth before 259 AC. No further specifications can be given.

Jeor Mormont

Birth

Jeor Mormont notes in 298 AC that “in two years time” he’ll turn 70.[32] This shows that he would have turned 70 in the year 300 AC, and has thus been born in 230 AC.

Jeyne Goodbrook

Birth

Jeyne has been mentioned to have been 6 years old in 299 AC[1][2] and in 300 AC.[9] Being 6 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means she was 5 turning 6 in 299 AC, and 6 turning 7 in 300 AC, placing her birth in 293 AC.

Jeyne Heddle

Birth

Jeyne was judged to have been 16 years old in 300AC by Brienne of Tarth.[{Ref|aFfC|42}} Brienne is not good at judging ages, but would Brienne have been correct, it would give Jeyne the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC


It is also stated that Jeyne was 18 years old during 300AC,[9] suggesting that Brienne had judged Jeyne’s age wrong. Being 18 years old in 300AC would give the following options:

  • 17 turning 18 in 300AC, placing her birth in 282AC
  • 18 turnign 19 in 300AC, placing her birth in 281AC


No further specifications can be given. Jeyne was born in either 281 AC or 282 AC.

Jeyne Westerling

Birth

Jeyne is known to have been 16 years old in 299 AC.[70] Jaime judges her age to have been 15 or 16 in 300 AC.[71] Being 16 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC places Jeyne’s birth in 283 AC.

Jhiqui

Birth

Jhiqui is 14 years old in 299AC.[2] That gives her the following options:

  • 13 turning 14 in 299AC, placing her birth in 285AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 299AC, placing her birth in 284AC


In 300Ac, Jhiqui was 16 years old.[9] That gives her the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing her birth in 284AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 300AC, placing her birth in 283AC


284AC is the only overlapping year. Jhiqui thus born in 284 AC.

Jhogo

Birth

Jhogo was 16 years old in either late 298 AC or early 299 AC.[72] This gives him the following options:


No further specifications can be given. Jhogo was thus born in or beteen 281 AC and 283 AC.

Joffrey Baratheon

Birth

Joffrey Baratheon is 12 years old in 298 AC.[73] On the day of his wedding, the first day of the first moon of the year 300 AC, Joffrey is 13 years old.[74] Since Joffrey’s 13th nameday is depicted as occurring on another day as his wedding, and since his wedding occurs on the first day of 300AC, it is known that the first day of 300AC is not the day that Joffrey turns 13. In fact, it shows that Joffrey turned 13 in the year 299 AC, and would be turning 14 in 300AC. That places Joffrey’s birth in 286 AC.

Joffrey Caswell

Birth

Joffrey was 20 years old in 212AC.[75] That givens him the following options:

  • 19 turning 20, placing his birth in 192AC
  • 20 turning 21, placing his birth in 191AC


No further specifications can be given. Joffrey was thus born in either 191 AC or 192 AC.

Joffrey Lonmouth

Birth

Joffrey was knighted by 114AC,[43] meaning the youngest he could have been that year was 14 turning 15. That places his birth in 99AC the latest.

No further specifications can be given. Joffrey was thus born in 99 AC or before.

Jojen Reed

Birth

Jojen is 13 years old in 299 AC.[76] in 300AC, Jojen is still 13 years old.[9]. Being 13 in both 299AC and 300AC gives 286 AC as only option for Jojen’s birth year.

Jon Arryn

Birth

Jon Arryn is mentioned to have been 20 years older than Hoster Tully.[77] Naturally, this doesn’t mean Hoster is exactly 20 years younger than Jon, but about 20 years, meaning that Jon Arryn is roughly 20 years older than Hoster Tully. Hoster Tully was born in or between 237AC and 241AC (see Hoster Tully). That means that Jon Arryn was born roughly in or between 217AC and 221AC, with the possibility of his birth having occurred a few years before or after.

Death

Jon Arryn dies a fortnight after the 12th nameday of Joffrey Baratheon[78]. Joffrey Baratheon is known to have been born in 286AC (see Joffrey Baratheon), meaning that Jon Arryn died in 298 AC.

Jon Brax

Birth

Jon has been mentioned to have been 3 years old in 299 AC[1][2] and in 300 AC.[9] Being 3 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means he was 2 turning 3 in 299 AC, and 3 turning 4 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 296AC.

Jon was thus born in 296 AC.

Jon Connington

Birth

Jon is known to be younger than Prince Rhaegar Targaryen,[79] who was born in 259AC. That places Jon’s birth in 260AC the earliest.

Tywin Lannister is known to have said that when Jon was named Hand of the King in 282AC, he was “too young”.[80] Tywin himself was 20 years old when named Hand of the King, suggesting that Jon was younger than 20 when he was named in 282AC. Being maximally 19 years old in 282AC would place Jon´s birth in 263AC the earliest.

Jon Connington ruled in his own name for several years after his father died.[79] Since Jon ruled until his exiled in 283AC, he had been ruling in his own right since at least 281AC (due to the use of “years”, there is a minimum of 2 years; a maximum cannot be determined). This means that by 281AC at least, Jon had turned 16, otherwise he would not have been ruling Griffin’s Roost on his own. This means Jon Connington was born no later than 265AC.


Jon Connington was thus born in or between 263 AC and 265 AC.


Note: Rhaegar Targaryen visits Griffin’s Roost on his way back from Dorne, when Jon’s father is still alive. Though there are plenty of reasons why Rhaegar could have been in Dorne, it is possible Rhaegar had gone to Sunspear to meet with the Martells for his wedding to Elia Martell. In this case, Rhaegar’s visit to Griffin’s Roost would have taken place in either 278AC or 279AC. This would suggest that Jon’s father died in either 278AC, 279AC, 280AC or 281AC, to make room for Jon ruling in his own name for multiple years before being exiled. Connington mentions Rhaegar had been young, and he himself even younger at this event. If the meeting at Griffin’s Roost indeed took place in 278/279AC, Jon Connington would have been between the ages of 13 and 16, based on the three possible years op birth for Jon.

Rumoured death

Jon Connington is mentioned to have left the Golden Company a dozen years ago in 300AC. Later, this is specified as to actually have been 12 years,[81] placing Jon’s “exile” from the Golden Company in 288 AC, five years after the Rebellion ended. Jon Connnigton had spend five years with the Golden Company.[81] For him to have spend five years with the Golden Company while 283 AC is the first moment he could have joined, and 288 AC is the year he certainly left, it shows that he joined the Golden Company shortly after his exile began, in 283 AC.

Jon Snow

Birth

Jon is 14 years old when the direwolves are found[3] and during the welcoming feast in Winterfell[73]. Both events occur in 298 AC. After he has turned 15, Tyrion Lannister and Yoren start going south. When Yoren arrives at King’s Landing, Arya has just witnessed a conversation between Varys and Illyrio Mopatis, concerning, amongst others, Margaery Tyrell, who is mentioned to still be 14 years old (see Margaery Tyrell) This means that this event still takes place in 298 AC, since it is known that Margaery is 14 turning 15 in 298 AC). This means that Jon is 14 turning 15 in 298 AC, meaning that he was born in 283 AC.

Jonelle Cerwyn

Birth

Jonelle Cerwyn is 30 years old in 298 AC.[82] This gives her the following options:

  • 29 turning 30 in 298AC, placing her birth in 268AC
  • 30 turning 31 in 298AC, placing her birth in 267AC

In 300AC, she’s 32 years old.[9][23] This gives her the following options:

  • 31 turning 32 in 300AC, placing her birth in 268AC
  • 32 turning 33 in 300AC, placing her birth in 267AC

However, Jonelle was also 32 years old in late 299AC.[2] Being 32 years old in both 299AC and 300AC shows that she was 31 turning 32 in 299AC, and 32 turning 33 in 300AC. Jonelle was thus born in 267 AC.

Jonos Frey

Birth

Jonos has been mentioned to have been 8 years old in 299 AC[1][2] and in 300 AC.[9] Being 8 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means he was 7 turning 8 in 299 AC, and 8 turning 9 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 291 AC.

Jorah Mormont

Birth

Jorah Mormont notes that he is thrice the age of Daenerys Targaryen, in 299 AC.[83] [84] Daenerys, at that moment, is 15 years old. That means that Jorah’s age is somewhere close to 45. This aligns with Dany thinking Jorah to have passed 40 in 298 AC,[85] and with Tyrion guessing Jorah had certainly passed 40 or is even older in 300 AC.[86] Jorah had left Westeros in exile 5 years prior to 298 AC, thus in 293 AC. Jorah had been married to Lynesse Hightower after the Greyjoy Rebellion in 289 AC. Prior to his marriage to Lynesse Hightower, Jorah had been married to another woman for 10 years. This would put his age during his first marriage at approximately 25, a normal age for a highborn man, and heir to an house, to marry, in peace time.

Though Jorah won’t mean that he’s exactly three times as old as Daenerys, it is an indication. It can be concluded that Jorah is around 45 years old in 299AC, meaning that he was born around 254 AC.

Jorelle Mormont

Birth

With her younger sister having been born in 290AC (see Lyanna Mormont), Jorelle would have been born no later than 289AC, being minimally a year older.

Alysanne Mormont, Jorelle's older sister, was born in 278AC the latest, and in 276AC the earliest (see Alysanne Mormont). With 276AC as Alysanne’s first possible moment of birth, Jorelle’s first possible moment of birth would be two years later (since there’s another sister in between). This means that Jorelle was born in 278AC the earliest.


No further specifications can be given. Jorelle was born in or between 278 AC and 289 AC.

Josmyn Peckledon

Birth

Josmyn is said to have been no older than 14 during 299 AC, after the Battle of the Blackwater.[33] Josmyn was 15 years old in 300 AC.[26]

Being 14 years old in 299AC and 15 in 300AC, gives the following options:

  • 13 turning 14 in 299AC, and 14 turning 15 in 300AC, placing her birth in 285AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 299AC, and 15 turning 16 in 300AC, placing her birth in 284AC


No further specifications can be given. Josmyn was born in either 284 AC or 285 AC.

Joy Hill

Birth

Joy Hill was 9 or 10 when Jaime Lannister had last seen her, as stated in 300 AC.[71] The last time Jaime could have seen Joy was when he fled to Casterly Rock in 298 AC. Joy is 10 years old in 298AC.[62] In 299AC, Joy has turned 11. In 300AC, Joy is still 11 years old.[9]

Being 11 years old in both 299AC and 300AC, shows that Joy was 10 turning 11 in 299AC, and is 11 turning 12 in 300AC. This places Joy’s birth in 288 AC.


Note: In addition that means that Joy was 9 turning 10 in 298AC, giving an explanation to Jaime’s “9 or 10”, if he did indeed see her while visiting the Rock shortly in 298AC.

Joyeuse Erenford

Birth

Joyeuse is known to have been 16 years old in 299 AC.[56] This gives Joyeuse the following options:


No further specifications can be given. Joyeuse was born in either 282 AC or 283 AC.
