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 2 or page 4. You are currently on page 3.


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.


Kaeth

Birth

Kaeth was 80 years old when he was raised to the office of Grandmaester.[1] This occurred in either 256 AC or 257 AC (due to his death, less than a year later, having occurred in either 257AC or 258AC, see below under "death"). If Kaeth was 80 years old in either 256AC or 257AC, that gives him the following options:

  • 79 turning 80 in 256AC, placing his birth in 176AC
  • 80 turning 81 in 256AC, placing his birth in 175AC
  • 79 turning 80 in 257AC, placing his birth in 177AC
  • 80 turning 81 in 257AC, placing his birth in 176AC


No further specifications can be given. Kaeth was thus born in either 175 AC, 176 AC or 177 AC.

Death

Kaeth died within a year of being raised to the office of Grandmaester, after which he was replaced. His replacement, Ellendor, also died within a year of being raised to the office, which cause another replacement, Merion, to be send to King’s Landing, who died on the journey over there. That was when Pycelle was raised, in 259AC.[1]

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 258AC or 259AC. With Kaeth dying a little less than a year before Ellendor, places Kaeth’s death in either 257 AC or 258 AC.

Kerwin

Birth

Kerwin is judged to be 22 years old in 300AC.[2] That gives Kerwin the following goptions:

  • 21 turning 22 in 300AC, placing his birth in 278AC
  • 22 turning 23 in 300AC, placing his birth in 277AC


No further specifications can be given. Kerwin was born in either 277 AC or 278 AC.

Kevan Lannister

birth

Kevan Lannister was 55 years old in 300 AC.[3] This leaves two options for Kevan:

  • He was 54 turning 55 in 300AC, placing his birth in 245AC
  • He was 55 turning 56 in 300AC, placing his birth in 244AC


No further specification can be given. Kevan was thus born in either 244 AC or 245 AC.

Note: Genna Lannister was born in either 245 AC or 246 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 Genna was born in 245 AC, Kevan will have been born in 244 AC. If Genna was born in 246 AC, both options remain open for Kevan.

Khrazz

Birth

Khrazz is roughly 40 years younger than Barristan Selmy,[4] who was born in 237AC (see Barristan Selmy). That means Khrazz was born roughly speaking in 277 AC.

Kyra

Birth

Kyra is known to have been 18 years old in 299 AC.[5] This would give Kyra the following two options:


No further specifications can be given. Kyra was thus born in either 280 AC or 281 AC

Kyra Frey

Birth

Kyra would have been at least 13 years old when her eldest child was born. Her eldest child, Walder, was born in 290AC (see Walder Goodbrook), meaning that Kyra’s last possible moment of birth was 13 years prior to 290AC, in 277AC.

Kyra’s father Jared would have been at least 13 years old when his firstborn child was born, and thus at least 14 when his second born child, Kyra, was born. Jared’s earliest possible year of birth in 248AC (see Jared Frey), meaning that Kyra’s earliest possible year of birth was 14 years later, in 262AC.


Kyra was thus born in or between 262 AC and 277 AC.



Lady Frey (Walder Frey's sister)

Birth

Lady Frey was 15 years old when she got married in 212AC.[6] That gives her the following options:

  • 14 turning 15, placing her birth in 197AC
  • 15 turning 16, placing her birth in 196AC


No further specifications can be given. Lady Frey was thus born in either 196 AC or 197 AC.

Lancel Lannister

Birth

More than 6 months into 298 AC, Ned Stark guesses Lancel to be 15 years old.[7] Being 15 more than 6 months into 298 AC, and 16 in the first half of 299 AC,[8][9] Lancel would have either turned 16 in the last few months of 298 AC, or in the first half of 299 AC.

  • Turning 16 in 298AC, placing Lancels birth in 282AC
  • Turning 16 in 299AC, placing Lancels birth in 283AC


In the first half of 299 AC, Lancel is 16 years old. In early 300 AC, Lancel is 17 years old. Lancel has turned 17 by the beginning of 300 AC.[3] Already being 17 in early 300 AC, eliminates the possibility of Lancels nameday falling further in the year.

Ned Stark guesses Lancel to be 4 years older than his cousin Tyrek, who was born in 286AC (see Tyrek Lannister). If Ned is correct in his guess, Lancel was indeed born in 282AC.

Lanna

Birth

Lanna is 14 years old in 300 AC.[10] That gives the following options:

  • 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. Lanna was thus born in either 285 AC or 286 AC.

Larence Snow

Birth

In 299AC, Larence is known to be 12 years old.[11] Larence Snow was near 12 during the Harvest Feast in 299 AC.[12] In late 299AC, Larence has turned 13.[13] In 300AC, Larence is stated to have been 13 years old.[14] With Larence having been both 12 and 13 in 299AC, and with Larence being 13 years old in both 299AC and 300AC, he was thus 12 turning 13 in 299AC and 13 turning 14 in 300AC. This places his birth in 286 AC.

Layna

Birth

Layna was estimated to have been 18 years old in 298 AC by Chiswyck, but 13 by Rafford.[15] Lyana’s youngest option is turning 13 in 298 AC, which would place Layna’s birth in 285 AC. Lyana’s eldest option is being 18 turning 19 in 298 AC, which would place Layna’s birth in 279 AC.


Layna was thus born in or between 279 AC and 285 AC.

Leaf

Birth

Leaf claims to have seen 200 years in 300AC.[16] That would place her birth in 100 AC, if she’s being specific.

Leana Frey

Birth

Leana was not yet born in late 299AC,[13] but has been born by early 300AC.[14] No further specifications can be given. Leana was born in either 299 AC or 300 AC

Leathers

Birth

Leathers is well past 40 in 300AC, with sons and grandsons of his own.[17] That places his birth before 259 AC. No further specifications can be given.

Lem (Standfast)

Birth

Lem was 50 if he was a day in 211AC.[18] He had been old enough to fight in the Blackfyre Rebellion in 196 AC. Being around 50 years old means that Lem was born around 161 AC.

Lemore

Birth

Lemore is past 40 in 300 AC.[19] This gives her the minimum age of 41 in 300AC, placing her birth no later than 259 AC.

Lollys Stokeworth

Birth

Lollys Stokeworth was 33 years old during 299 AC.[20] Being 33 years old in 299 AC gives two options:

  • 32 turning 33 in 299AC, placing her birth in 266AC
  • 33 turning 34 in 299AC, placing her birth in 265AC

Lollys is also known to have been 34 years old in 299AC.[13] This shows that Lollys was 33 turning 34 in 299AC, eliminating the option of 266AC, placing her birth in 265AC.


Lollys was thus born in either 265 AC.

Loras Tyrell

Birth

Ser Loras is described as being 16 years old during the Hand’s tourney in 298 AC,[21] and later also when Eddard Stark sends men after Gregor Clegane.[22] Catelyn Tully, upon seeing Loras in 299 AC, thinks he cannot have been more than two years older than Robb, who was, at that moment, 15, while also thinking how Loras could not yet have reached his second nameday wen Robert Baratheon won his crown in 283 AC.[23] When Tyrion is speaking with Ser Loras after the Battle of the Blackwater, but before Margaery’s and Joffrey’s wedding, thus in 299 AC, Loras is mentioned to be 17 years old.[24] This could give the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 298AC, 16 turning 17 in 299AC, and 17 turning 18 in 300AC, placing his birth year in 282AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 298AC, 17 turning 18 in 299AC, and 18 turning 19 in 300AC, placing his birth year in 281AC

On the day of Margaery’s wedding to Tommen, in the year 300 AC, when Margaery herself is noted to be 16 years old, Cersei notes that Loras is one year older than her.[25] With Margaery still being 16 years old, that would make Loras 17 years old in 300 AC, meaning that Loras was born in 282AC, as the other option would not be possible, compared to Cersei’s quote.

In addition, Jaime Lannister mentions that Loras is 17 years old in 300 AC,[26] confirming that Loras was 17 in both 299 AC and 300 AC, placing his birth in 282 AC.

Lorcas

Birth

Lorcas has been an acolyte for 50 years in 300 AC.[27] Students at the Citadel seem to start their studies with 9 as a minimum age.[28] That gives Lorcas a minimum age of 59 in 300 AC, indicating that he was born in 241 AC or before.

Loreza Sand

Birth

Loreza Sand is 6 years old in 300 AC,[29][30] and is mentioned to have turned 7 later on in 300 AC. Being 6 turning 7 in 300AC means she was born in 293 AC.

Lothar Frey

Birth

Lothar is the eldest son of Lord Walder Frey with his fourth wife, Alyssa Blackwood. Lothar’s first elder brother is Raymund Frey, the youngest son of Walder Frey by his third wife, Amarei Crakehall. Raymund was born in 264AC (see Raymund Frey). This means that Lothar cannot have been born earlier than one year after Raymund, especially since Amarei Crakehal, Lord Walder’s third wife, has died in 264AC (see Amarei Crakehall). This makes Lothars first possible birth year 265AC.

Lothar's first younger sibling, Jammos, was born no later than 267AC (see Jammos Frey). Lothar would have been born at least one year before, making 266AC the last possible year of birth for Lothar.


No further specifications can be given. Lothar was thus born in 265 AC or 266 AC.

Luceon (Frey)

Birth

Luceon is younger than his brother Jared by at least one year. Jared was born the earliest in 248AC (see Jared Frey), meaning that Luceons earliest possible year of birth is 249AC.

Luceon is older than his younger brother Hosteen by at least one year. Hosteen was born in 258AC the latest (see Hosteen Frey), meaning that Luceon was born no later than one year before, in 257AC.


No further specifications can be given. Luceon was thus born in or between 249 AC and 257 AC.

Lucos Chyttering

Birth

Lucos is 16 years old in 299AC.[13] That 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

Lucos is also 16 years old in 300AC.[14] That eliminates the option of having been 16 turning 17 in 299AC, leaving only one option for Lucos’ birth year: 283AC.


Lucos was thus born in either 283 AC.

Luthor Tyrell

Death

Lord Randyll Tarly went to Highgarden to bend the knee to Lord Tyrell, and took Samwell with him.[31] With Mace Tyrell already being in charge of the Siege at Storm’s End during Robert’s Rebellion, this suggests that Mace became the Lord of Highgarden after Samwell’s birth (since Samwell was born before the Rebellion), and thus that Luthor died after Samwell’s birth. Samwell was born in 283 AC, placing Luthors death in either 283 AC or after.

Lyanna Mormont

Birth

Lyanna Mormont is mentioned to be “ten, or near enough to make no matter” in 300 AC.[32] This shows that Lyanna is either still 9, to be turning 10 later in the year, or she already had turned 10 in 300 AC. This places Lyanna’s birth in 290 AC.

Lyanna Stark

Birth

Lyanna had been 16 years old when she died in 283AC[33]. For Lyanna, this gives the following options:

  • 15 turning 16 in 283AC, placing her birth in 267AC
  • 16 turning 17 in 283AC, placing her birth in 266AC


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

Death

Lyanna died shortly after the Sack of King’s Landing. The Sack took place in 283AC, around the time of the birth of Robb Stark. Since the year continues for a few more months after Robb’s nameday, Lyanna thus also died in 283 AC.

Lyman Darry

Birth

Lyman is 8 years old in 299AC.[11] That gives Lyman the following options:

  • 7 turning 8 in 299AC, placing his birth in 291AC
  • 8 turning 9 in 299AC, placing his birth in 290AC


No further specifications can be given. Lyman was born in either 290 AC or 291 AC.

Lyonel Corbray

Birth

Lyonel is 40-odd years old in 300 AC.[34] This indicates that he was born around 260 AC

Lyonel Frey

Birth

Lyonel Frey is the second son of Emmon Frey and Genna Lannister. That means he is at least one year younger than his older brother Cleos, who was born in 258AC the earliest (see Cleos Frey). This would make one year later, 259AC, the first possible year of birth for Lyonel.

Lyonel will have been older than his younger brother Tion by at least a year. Tion was born no later than 284AC (see Tion Frey), meaning that Lyonel was born no later than 1 year before, in 283AC.


Lyonel was thus born in or between 259 AC and 283 AC.

Lyra Mormont

Birth

Lyra Mormont will have been at least one year younger than her older sister Alysanne, who was born in 276AC the earliest (see Alysanne Mormont). This means that Lyra was born in 277AC the earliest.

Lyra’s next sister, Jorelle, is at least one year younger than her. Jorelle was born in 289AC the latest (see Jorelle Mormont), showing that Lyra will have been born in 288AC the latest.


No further specifications can be given. Lyra was thus born in or between 277 AC and 288 AC.

Lysa Tully

Birth

Lysa Tully was two years younger than her sister Catelyn.[35] Upon reminiscing about her youth, Catelyn Tully notes how she was just as old as her daughter Sansa, while Lysa was not yet as old as daughter Arya.[36] Sansa and Arya Stark differ about 2 years and a few months in age, showing that in reality, Catelyn and Lysa differ a bit more than 2 years in age, if not a few months more, but less than 3 years in age.

With Catelyn Tully having been born in 264AC (see CatelynTully), Lysa Tully was thus born in 266AC.


Note: With a difference of about 2,5 years, Lysa’s nameday will fall in the beginning of the year, and Catelyn’s in the end of the year, reflecting the situation of Sansa and Arya Stark.

Lythene Frey

Birth

Lythene is younger than her brother Hosteen by at least one year. Hosteen was born the earliest in 250AC (see Hosteen Frey), meaning that Lythene’s earliest possible year of birth is 251AC.

Lythene is older than her younger brother Symond by at least one year. Symond was born in 260AC the latest (see Symond Frey), meaning that Lythene was born no later than one year before, in 259AC.


No further specifications can be given. Lythene was thus born in or between 251 AC and 259 AC.



Mace Tyrell

Birth

Mace Tyrell is no more than 10 years older than Cersei Lannister,[3] who was born in 266AC (see Cersei Lannister), indicating that Mace was born in 256 AC. Any later seems unlikely, since that would make Mace’s mother Olenna relatively old during the birth of her first child (see Olenna Redwyne).

Maege Mormont

Birth

Maege’s youngest daughter is 10 years old. After about the age of 50, after menopause has taken place, women can no longer give birth. This shows that when Lyanna Mormont (aged 10 in 300 AC, born in 289-291AC) was born, Maege was not yet 50. If Lyanna was born as the last child Maege could possibly have birthed, Maege would have been born around 50 years prior, around 239-241AC. This earliest Maege could have been born.

Maege's eldest daughter Dacey was born no later than 277AC (see Dacey Mormont). Maege will have been at least 13 years old when giving birth to Dacey. This places the last moment of birth for Maege in 264AC.

Maege tells Robb Stark, who is 15 years old at that moment, that he was young enough to have been her grandson.[37] With each generation of women being at least 13 years old at the birth of their first child, and with Robb Stark having been born in 283 AC, Maege would have thus been born no later than 23 years prior to Robb, placing her birth in 257AC the latest.


Maege Mormont was thus born between 239 AC and 257 AC.

Maegelle Frey

Birth

Maegelle will be at least one year younger than her older brother Aegon Frey. Aegon was born in 248AC the earliest (see Aegon Frey (Jinglebell)), meaning that Maegelle was born no earlier than 249AC.

Maegelle’s second child is a squire, meaning he would have the minimum age of 5 in 299 AC,[38] making the last possible year of birth of Walder Vance 291AC (see Walder Vance). Maegelle would have been at least 13 years old when giving birth to her firstborn child, and thus 14 years old when giving birth to her second born child. With Maegelle having the minimum age of 13 when birthing Walder, and with Walder having been born in 293AC the latest, Maegelle was born no later than 280AC.

Concluded can be that Maegelle Frey was born in or between 249 AC and 280 AC.

Maegor I Targaryen

Birth

Maegor was 5 years younger than his brother Aenys. Aenys was born in either 6AC or 7AC (see Aenys I Targaryen), meaning that Maegor was born in either 11 AC or 12 AC.

Maekar I Targaryen

Birth

Maekar was the fourth born son of Daeron II. Maekar’s eldest son, Daeron, was born in 191AC the latest (see Daeron Targaryen). Maekar would have been at least 13 years old at Daeron’s birth. This means that 178AC is the latest possible year of birth for Maekar.

Maekar’s eldest brother Baelor was born in 169AC the earliest (see Baelor Targaryen). Between Baelor and Maekar are two other brothers. This means that Maekar was born at least 3 years after Baelor, making the first possible year of birth for Maekar 172AC.


Maekar was thus born in or between 172 ACAC and 178 AC.

Malwyn Frey

Birth

Malwyn has been mentioned to have been 15 in 299 AC[11][13]. This gives Malwyn the following options:

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


Malwyns older brother Robert was born in 283AC (see Robert Frey). Due to Robert being still 16 in the first months (or so) in 300 AC, and taking in account the amount of time that his mother would need to recover for a new pregnancy, this rules out that Malwyn was born in the same year as his older brother, thus ruling out the option of 283AC.


Malwyn Frey was born in 284 AC.

Marei

Birth

Marei is older than Shae.[9] Shae was born in either 280AC or 281AC (see Shae). This means that Marei was born in 280 AC the latest, though possibly before.

Margaery Tyrell

Birth

Margaery Tyrell is described as a maid of 14 years in 298 AC,[7][39] as a girl “no older than Robb” (who is 15 years old at that moment)[23] in 299AC and later as a girl of “15 or 16 years” old during 299AC.[40] She is described as being 16 when she arrives in King’s Landing, also in 299AC,[41] and she is still 16 years old on her wedding day, the first day of 300AC.[42] This means that whilst the year turns from 299AC into 300AC, Margaery stays 16, indicating that she was 15 turning 16 in 299AC, and 16 turning 17 in 300AC.


This concludes that Margaery was born in 283 AC.

Marianne Vance

Birth

Marianne Vance was the eldest child of Maegelle Frey. Maegelle was born no earlier than 249AC (see Maegelle Frey), and would have been at least 13 years old when Marianne was born. This means that Marianne was born no earlier than 262AC.

Marianne would be at least one year older than her younger brother Walder, who was born no later than 294AC (see Walder Vance), meaning that Marianne would be born no later than 1 year before, in 293AC.


Marianne was thus born in or between 262 AC and 293 AC.

Note: Marianne is mentioned to still be a maiden unwed in 299 AC and 300 AC, suggesting that she is closer in age to her cousin, Fair Walda, who was born in either 280AC or 281AC.

Marillion

Birth

Marillion is judged to be 18 years old in 298 AC.[43] If Catelyn’s judgement is correct, that gives two options for Marillion’s birth:

  • 17 turning 18 in 298 AC, placing his birth in 280AC
  • 18 turning 19 in 298 AC, placing his birth in 279AC


No further specifications can be given. Marillion was born in either 279 AC or 280 AC.

Marissa Frey

Birth

Marissa has been mentioned to have been 13 years old in 299 AC[11][13] and in 300 AC.[14] Being 13 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means she was 12 turning 13 in 299 AC, and 13 turning 14 in 300 AC, placing her birth in 286AC.

Marissa was thus born in 286 AC.

Maron Greyjoy

Birth

Maron Greyjoy was the second born child of Balon Greyjoy. He was born at least 1 year before his sister Asha, though most likely he was somewhat older, since he had command of his own ship during the Greyjoy Rebellion in 289AC.

Being at least one year older than his sister, would mean Maron was born at the latest in 275AC (see also Asha Greyjoy). Having been born in 275AC would have made him 14 during the Greyjoy Rebellion, which might not be old enough to be commanding your own ship during a war. Seeing as how the Ironborn follow strength above all, they might not have followed a 14 year old boy.


For Maron this means that he was born in 275AC the absolute latest, but possibly (and most likely) some years before.

Note: Aeron Greyjoy remembers that his older brother Balon commanded his own longship at the age of 17, and hints that this is exceptional. If both Rodrik and Maron already commanded their own longship before their deaths, they most likely were both older than 17, being 18 years old at least, though most likely older. This would make Rodriks latest possible year of birth 270AC, and Maron’s 271AC.

Maron Volmark

Birth

Maron was 16 years old in 300 AC.[44] That gives 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. Maron was thus born in either 283 AC or 284 AC.

Matarys Targaryen

Birth

Matarys was the younger brother of Valarr Targaryen. He was younger by at least a year, and since Valarr’s first possible year of birth is 183AC (see Valarr Targaryen), this means that Matarys was born in 184AC the earliest. No maximum birth year can be given.

Mathis Frey

Birth

Mathis has been mentioned to have been 5 years old in 299 AC[11][13] and in 300 AC.[14] Being 5 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means he was 4 turning 5 in 299 AC, and 5 turning 6 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 294AC.

Mathis was thus born in 294 AC.

Meera Reed

Birth

Meera Reed is 15 years old during the Harvest Feast at Winterfell, which takes place in 299 AC, after the Red Comet has appeared in the sky.[45] Meera has turned 16 before 299AC ends.[46] Meera being both 15 and 16 during 299AC, places her birth in 283 AC.

Megga Tyrell

Birth

Megga is known to be close to Sansa Starks age.[41] Sansa Stark was born in 286 AC. This places Megga’s birth roughly around 286 AC as well.

Melara Hetherspoon

Birth

Melara was 11 years old in 276 AC or 277 AC.[1] That gives the following options:

  • 10 turning 11 in 276AC, placing her birth in 265AC
  • 11 turning 12 in 276AC, placing her birth in 264AC
  • 10 turning 11 in 277AC, placing her birth in 266AC
  • 11 turning 12 in 277AC, placing her birth in 265AC


Melara is described as to be older than Cersei. Cersei was born in 266 AC (see Cersei Lannister), so if Melara had been born in that year, just a few weeks earlier, Cersei most likely would have described her as having been the same age. This rules out 266AC as Melara’s birth year.


Melara was thus born in either 264 AC or 265 AC.

Mellario of Norvos

Birth

Mellario of Norvos is known to be younger than her husband, Doran Martell.[47] Doran Martell was born in 247 AC the earliest (see Doran Martell). This means that Mellario was born in 248AC or later.

Mellario gave birth to her first child, Arianne, in 276 AC (see Arianne Martell). Mellario would have been at least 13 years old at Arianne’s birth, meaning that Mellario was born in 263AC the latest.

Mellario was born in or between 248 AC and 263 AC.

Merianne Frey

Birth

Merianne has been mentioned to have been 11 years old in 299 AC[11][13] and in 300 AC.[14] Being 11 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC means she was 10 turning 11 in 299 AC, and 11 turning 12 in 300 AC, placing her birth in 288AC.

Merianne was thus born in 288 AC.

Meribald

Birth

Meribald was no older than Podrick Payne, thus 12 years old, when he went off to war, to the War of the Ninepenny Kings.[48] The War of the Ninepenny Kings took place in either 259 AC, 260 AC, or 261 AC (see War of the Ninepenny Kings). With Meribald no older than 12 in one of these years, that gives Meribald the following options:

  • 12 in 259AC
    • 11 turning 12, placing his birth in 247AC
    • 12 turning 13, placing his birth in 246AC
  • 12 in 260AC
    • 11 turning 12, placing his birth in 248AC
    • 12 turning 13, placing his birth in 247AC
  • 12 in 261AC
    • 11 turning 12, placing his birth in 249AC
    • 12 turning 13, placing his birth in 248AC

Meribald states in 300 AC that it will be 40 years “soon”, since he has been walking through the Seven Kingdoms, which he started doing after the War of the Ninepenny Kings.[48] Had it been exactly 40 years in 300 AC, the War would have taken place in 260 AC. However, Meribald states that the War of the Ninepenny Kings was almost 40 years ago, placing the War of the Ninepenny Kings in 261 AC.

This would eliminate the years 246 AC and 247 AC as possible birth years, leaving only the possibilities 248 AC and 249 AC.

Merion

Birth

Merion was 66 years old in 259AC.[1] That gives him the following options:

  • 65 turning 66 in 259AC, placing his birth in 193AC
  • 66 turning 67 in 259AC, placing his birth in 192AC

No further specifications can be given. Merion was born in either 192 AC or 193 AC.

Merrett Frey

Birth

Merrett Frey mentions in 300 AC that he will be 40 years old in “less than 3 years”,[49] meaning that he will thus be turning 38 in 300 AC, 39 in 301AC and 40 in 302AC, making it less than 3 but more than 2 years before Merrett turns 40.

Turning 38 in 300 AC means that Merrett was born in 262 AC.

Mirri Maz Duur

Birth

Mirri Maz Duur is said to have been 40 years old in either late 298 AC or early 299 AC.[50] This gives Mirri the following options:

  • 39 turning 40 in 298 AC, placing her birth in 258 AC
  • 40 turning 41 in 298 AC, placing her birth in 257 AC
    • This option is only valid if Daenerys meets Mirri Maz Duur in 298 AC
  • 39 turning 40 in 299 AC, placing her birth in 259 AC
    • This option is only valid if Daenerys meets Mirri Maz Duur in 299 AC
  • 40 turning 41 in 299 AC, placing her birth in 258 AC.

No further specifications can be given. Mirri was thus born in either 257 AC, 258 AC or 259 AC.

Missandei

Birth

Missandei is judged to be “no older than 10” in 299AC[51] and is known to be 11 years old in 300AC.[52] That gives her two options:

  • 9 turning 10 in 299AC, and 10 turning 11 in 300AC, placing her birth in 289AC
  • 10 turning 11 in 299AC, and 11 turning 12 in 300AC, placing her birth in 288AC

No further specifications can be given. Missandei was born in either 288 AC or 289 AC.

Monterys Velaryon

Birth

Monterys Velaryon was 6 years old in 299 AC.[53] In 300AC, Monterys is still 6 years old.[14] Being 6 years old in both 299AC and 300AC shows that Monterys was 5 turning 6 in 299AC and is 6 turning 7 in 300AC. This places his birth in 293 AC.

Moreo Tumitis

Birth

Moreo had been sailing the Narrow Sea for 30 years in 298 AC.[54] This indicates Moreo started his sailing in 268AC, or around this time. Since it is unknow how old Moreo was when he started sailing, so the year 268 AC is the maximum birth year for Moreo. Moreo was thus born in 268 AC or before.

Mors Martell

Birth

Mors was born after Doran Martell, but before Elia Martell.[55] Doran was born in 247AC the earliest (see Doran Martell), and Elia Martell in 258AC the latest (see Elia Martell). Mors would thus have been born at least one year after Doran, but one year before Elia, placing his birth in or between 248 AC and 257 AC.

Death

Mors died in the cradle, before the birth of Elia Martell.[55] That places his death in or between 248 AC and 258 AC, since Mors could have died in the same year that Elia was born.

Mors Umber

Birth

Mors Umber is said to have been older than the father of Lady Donella Hornwood.[12] Lady Donella is known to have been passed her childbearing years, placing her birth no later than 249 AC (see Donella Hornwood). Donella's father would have been at least 13 years old at her birth, since it is unknown if Donella had older siblings and Donella could thus potentially have been her fathers firstborn child. This would place Donella's fathers birth no later than 236 AC.

Since Mors Umber is said to have been older than Donella’s father, Mors would have been born in 235 AC or earlier.

Note: Donella could very well have been older in 299 AC than she is estimated here. But since Donella’s age cannot be estimated, the numbers for Donella, her father, and Mors Umber are absolute minimums.

Morya Frey

Birth

Morya Frey is younger than Whalen Frey by at least one year. Whalen was born no earlier than 267AC (see Whalen Frey), meaning that one year later, 268AC, is the first possible birth year of Morya.

Morya is older than her sister Tyta Frey by at least one year. The last possible birth year for Tyta is 270AC (see Tyta Frey), making Morya's last possible year of birth one year before, in 269AC.

No further specifications can be given. Morya was thus born in either 268 AC or 269 AC.

Mya Stone

Birth

Mya Stone was noted to be 17 or 18 years old by Catelyn Tully in 298 AC.[35] In addition, Ned Stark remembers, in 298 AC, that Mya Stone was 17 or 18 years old, and that Robert Baratheon had been younger than that when he fathered her.[7] Being 17 or 18 years old in 298 would give Mya the following options:

  • 16 turning 17 in 298AC, placing her birth in 281AC
  • 17 turning 18 in 298AC, placing her birth in 280AC
  • 18 turning 19 in 298AC, placing her birth in 279AC


Robert Baratheon was born in 263AC (see Robert Baratheon). The three possible birth years for Mya would then give the following options:

  • Mya was born in 279AC, placing her conception in 278AC
    • Robert Baratheon would have been 15 years old
  • Mya was born in 280AC, placing her conception in 279AC
    • Robert Baratheon would have been 16 years old
  • Mya was born in 281AC, placing her conception in 280AC
    • Robert Baratheon would have been 17 years old

Since it is stated that Robert was younger than 17 when fathering, thus conceiving, Mya, the year 281AC as a possible birth year for Mya is eliminated. It can now be stated that Mya was born in either 280 AC or 279 AC.


The appendix of a Storm of Swords notes Mya to be 19 years old.[13] Since it’s unknown whether this appendix indicated Mya is 19 in 299AC or whether it indicates that she was 19 in 300AC, (the appendix usually lists characters as the age they have in the beginning of the book, however, Mya isn’t mentioned, nor does she appear, until after the turning of the year, creating the insecurity in her specific case) several options are left for Mya:

  • Being 19 in 299 AC
    • 18 turning 19 in 299AC, placing her birth in 280AC
    • 19 turning 20 in 299AC, placing her birth in 279AC
  • Being 19 in 300 AC
    • 18 turning 19 in 300AC, placing her birth in 281AC
    • 19 turning 20 in 300AC, placing her birth in 280AC

Concluded can be that Mya was born in 280AC or 279AC, though it has been disproven that Mya could have been born in 281AC, since Robert would then not have been younger than Mya was when fathering her.


No further specifications can be given. Mya was thus born in either 279 AC or 280 AC.

Note: Both options also align with the fact that Mya is able to remember Robert,[34] something which she wouldn´t have been able to do if she had been born in 281 AC, since humans cannot remember something that happened when they were only 1 year old. Robert left the Eyrie in 282AC to go to war, and has not been mentioned to have visited Mya afterwards.

Mycah

Birth

Mycah, the butchersboy, is mentioned to have been one year older than Joffrey Baratheon[56], who was born in 286 AC (see Joffrey Baratheon), and several years older than Arya Stark[56], who was born in 289 AC (see Arya Stark). Being one year older than Joffrey means Mycah was born in 285 AC, which would make him several years older than Arya as well.

Mycah was thus born in 285 AC

Mylenda Caron

Birth

Mylenda Caron was three times as old as her husband, Petyr Frey, when they got married.[57] During their wedding, Petyr Frey was 10 years old,[57] making Mylenda roughly 30 years old. Petyr was born in 281AC (see Petyr Frey), and was thus 10 years old in either 291AC, or 292AC. This means that Mylenda was roughly 30 years old in either 291AC or 292AC.

Roughly 30 years old in 291/292 AC indicates she was between the ages of 27 and 33, in either 291AC or 292AC. This would place her birth in or between 258AC (if she was turning 33 in 291AC, her oldest possible option) and 265AC (if she was turning 27 in 292AC, her youngest possible option).

Note: Mylenda is mentioned to be twice as old as her husband in in 300 AC.[49] Petyr, in 300 AC, is 19 years old. This would make Mylenda roughly 38 years old in 300 AC. Being about 8 years older than she was at her wedding, which took place 8 or 9 years prior, yields no further information.

Myles Toyne

Death

Myles is mentioned to have been dead for 4 years in 300 AC.[58] That places his death in 296 AC.

Myranda Royce

Birth

Myranda is of an age of Mya Stone, in 300 AC.[34] Mya Stone was born in either 279 AC or 280 AC (see Mya Stone). Myranda will have been born around those years as well.

Myrcella Baratheon

Birth

In 298 AC, during the welcoming feast in Winterfell, Myrcella was 7 years old[59]. Myrcella was 9 years old when she was betrothed to Trystane Martell in 299 AC,[60] and 10 years old in 300 AC, when she was spending time at Sunspear.[29] Being 7 in 298AC and 9 in 299AC gives only one option: Myrcella was 7 turning 8 in 298AC, 8 turning 9 in 299AC and 9 turning 10 in 300AC. Myrcella was thus born in 290 AC.



Naerys Targaryen

Birth

Naerys Targaryen was the only daughter of Viserys II, and it is unknown if she was born as a first child, as a second child, or as a third child. If she was born as a first child, she would have been born no earlier than 135AC, the first possible year for her father to have been 13 years old, since Viserys was born in 122AC.[61]

Naerys’ son and eldest child, Daeron II, was born in or between 152AC and 157AC (see Daeron II Targaryen). Naerys would have been at least 13 years old when he was born. With 157AC as Daeron’s last possible year of birth, Naerys’last possible year of birth would have been 13 years before, in 144AC.


Concluded can be that Naerys Targaryen was born in or between 135 AC and 144 AC.

Nymeria Sand

Birth

The uncertain factor of not knowing the place of Nymeria’s conception has been taken into account. Nymeria is described as being 25 years old in 300 AC.[55][14] This leaves the following options:

  • 24 turning 25 in 300AC, placing her birth in 275AC
  • 25 turning 26 in 300AC, placing her birth in 274AC

In addition to Nymeria’s age in 300 AC, we also know she was born to a noble woman from Volantis. For her father Oberyn to visit Volantis, he would have to travel to the Free Cities.

Oberyn was born in either 257 AC or 258 AC (see Oberyn Martell). At the age of 16 he was temporarily exiled to Lys.[62] From there, he travelled. Oberyn would have been 16 either in 273 AC (15 turning 16 when born in 257AC) 274 AC (15 turning 16 when born in 258AC, 16 turning 17 when born in 257AC) or 275 AC (16 turning 17 when born in 258AC).

With Oberyn’s first chance of reaching Volantis in 273 AC, this suggests that Nymeria cannot have been conceived before, and was thus born in 274 AC, 9 months later. This would make her 25 turning 26 in 300 AC.

With Oberyn’s last chance of reaching Volantis in 275 AC, this suggests that Nymeria was either born in late 275AC (if Oberyn reached Volantis 9 months prior, in 275 AC as well), or in 276AC. Having been born in 276 AC cannot make her 25 years old in 300 AC, and having been born in late 275 AC cannot make her 25 years old in the first half of 300 AC.

Nymeria was born in either 274 AC or 275 AC, if her place of conception was the Free City of Volantis.

Had the noblewoman from Volantis been in Westeros at the time of conception, however, Oberyn’s last chance of conceiving Nymeria would have been either 274 AC or 275 AC (before Oberyn turned 17, since he was exiled at the age of 16). This would put Nymeria’s year of birth either in:

  • 274AC (if the conception happened in 273AC)
  • 275AC (if the conception happened in 274AC)
  • 276AC (if the conception happened in 275AC)

As stated, the year 276 AC for Nymeria’s birth is not possible, since that would make it impossible for her to be 25 years old in 300 AC.

Nymeria was born in either 274 AC or 275 AC, if her place of conception was Westeros.



Obara Sand

Birth

Obara is described as being 28 years old in 300 AC.[14] This leaves the following options:

  • 27 turning 28 in 300AC, placing her birth in 272AC
  • 28 turning 29 in 300AC, placing her birth in 271AC

No further specifications can be given. Obara was thus born in either 271 AC or 272 AC.

Obella Sand

Birth

Obella Sand is mentioned to be 12 years old during 300 AC.[63] That leaves two options for Obella:

  • 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. Obella was thus born in either 287 AC or 288 AC.

Oberyn Martell

Birth

When Tyrion Lannister had just been born, Oberyn Martell, according to his own account, was 14 or 15 years old. With Tyrion born in either 272 AC or 273 AC (see Tyrion Lannister), that leaves several options for Oberyn Martell to have been 14 or 15 years old:

  • 13 turning 14 in 272AC, placing his birth in 258AC
  • 13 turning 14 in 273AC, placing his birth in 259AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 272AC, placing his birth in 257AC
  • 14 turning 15 in 273AC, placing his birth in 258AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 272AC, placing his birth in 256AC
  • 15 turning 16 in 273AC, placing his birth in 257AC

This gives the years 256 AC until 259 AC as options.


Doran Martell was born in either 247AC or 248AC (see Doran Martell). Oberyn is known to have been born 10 years later than Doran, which would give two options: either Oberyn was born in 257AC or in 258AC. This eliminates several possibilities, namely 256AC and 259AC.

When Tyrion meets Oberyn Martell in 299AC, he described Oberyn as a man past forty, not as a man of forty.[64] This shows that Oberyn, in 299AC, is at least 41 years old, if not older. The youngest Oberyn could be at that time, was 40 turning 41 prior to meeting Tyrion in 299AC, meaning that he was born in 258AC or before (since Oberyn being older than 40 turning 41 in 299AC would place his nameday earlier in the century). This cannot further specify Oberyn’s year of birth.

No further specifications can be given. Oberyn was thus born in either 257 AC or 258 AC.


Note: Oberyn gives several accounts of having met Tyrion Lannister shortly after Tyrions birth. He states that Jaime and Cersei Lannister were “8 or 9 years old”,[64] but with Tyrions two options of 272AC and 273AC, combined with the birth of Jaime and Cersei in 266AC, it can be seen that in truth, Cersei and Jaime would have been either 5 years old (5 turning 6 in 272AC), 6 years old (5 turning 6 in 272AC or 6 turning 7 in 273AC) or 7 years old (6 turning 7 in 273AC). This shows that Oberyn’s account is rather untrustworthy, and cannot be used to narrow down his own age. Other discrepancies in Oberyn’s account can also be found. Oberyn tells he was “14 or 15, thereabouts”, showing that doesn’t even recall how old he was when he visited Casterly Rock. He also states that between the twins and him and Elia were 5 or 6 years,[65] but at another moment, he states that while Jaime and Cersei were 8 or 9, he was 14 or 15, and thus Elia 15 or 16, giving age differences from 5 to 8 years.

Olenna Redwyne

Birth

Olenna is said to have been in her sixties in 299 AC.[66] This means she was between the age of 61 and 69 years old, placing her birth between 238AC and 230AC.

No further specifications can be given. Olenna was thus born in or between 230 AC and 238 AC.

Olyvar Frey

Birth

Olyvar is 2 years older than Robb Stark,[67] and is known to have been 18 in 299AC.[11][13] Olyvar was 17 years old in 299 AC as well. With Olyvar having been both 17 and 18 in 299AC, Olyvar was thus 17 turning 18 in 299 AC, which places his birth in 281 AC.

Olyvar Martell

Olyvar was born after Doran Martell, but before Elia Martell.[55] Doran was born in 247AC the earliest (see Doran Martell), and Elia Martell in 258AC the latest (see Elia Martell). Olyvar would thus have been born at least one year after Doran, but one year before Elia, placing his birth in or between 248 AC and 257 AC.

Death

Olyvar died in the cradle, before the birth of Elia Martell.[55] That places his death in or between 248 AC and 258 AC, since Olyvar could have died in the same year that Elia was born.

Osmund Frey

Birth

Osmund is mentioned to be 2 years old in both 299AC and 300AC.[11][13][14] Being 2 years old in both 299 AC and 300 AC, means Osmund was 1 turning 2 in 299 AC, and 2 turning 3 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 297 AC.

Ottyn Wythers

Birth

Ottyn is known to have been of an age with Jeor Mormont,[68] who was born in 230 AC (see Jeor Mormont). “Off an age with” doesn’t mean that Ottyn was born in the same year as Mormont, but around the same time, possibly differing a few years. No further specifications can be given about Ottyn. His birth is thus placed in roughly in the year 230 AC.



Pate (King's Landing)

Birth

Pate is 8 years old in 300AC.[14][69] That gives him the following options:

  • 7 turning 8 in 300AC, placing his birth in 292AC
  • 8 turning 9 in 300AC, placing his birth in 291AC

No further specifications can be given. Pate was thus born in either 291 AC or 292 AC.

Pate (Novice)

Birth

Pate has been at the Citadel for 5 years in 300 AC,[70] indicating that he arrived in 295 AC. Pate is known to have been 13 years old upon his arrival at the Citadel, [70] which gives him the following options:

  • 12 turning 13 in 295AC, placing his birth in 282AC
  • 13 turning 14 in 295AC, placing his birth in 281AC

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

Pate (Standfast)

Birth

Pate was old enough in 211AC to have been fighting in the Blackfyre Rebellion in 196AC.[18] Fighting is usually done from the age of 15 years old or older[18], so Pate will have been 15 years old in 196AC, meaning he had been born by 181AC at least. In 211AC, people older than 50 were not wanted for the upcoming fight. This means that Pate could not have been older than 50 in 211AC, meaning that he was born the earliest in 161AC.

Pate was thus born in or between 161 AC and 181 AC.

Patrek Vance

Birth

Patrek is at least one year younger than his brother Walder. Walder was born in 263AC the earliest (see Walder Vance), meaning that Patrek cannot have been born earlier than one year later, in 264AC.

Patrek is not mentioned to have been a babe during 299 AC or 300 AC, meaning he was at least 5 during the events of 299 AC[71]. This would make Patrek turning 5 in 299 AC the minimum of his birth range, placing his birth no later than 294AC.

Patrek was born in or between 264 AC and 294 AC.

Penny

Birth

Tyrion Lannister guessed Penny to be “17, 18, no more than 19” in 300AC.[72] That gives Penny 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. Penny was born in either 281 AC, 282 AC or 283 AC.

Perra Frey

Birth

Perra Frey has been mentioned to have been 5 years old in 299 AC[11][13] and in 300 AC.[14]} This would mean she was 4 turning 5 in 299 AC, and 5 turning 6 in 300 AC, placing her birth in 294 AC.

Perra Royce

Birth

Perra Royce birthed her first child in either 233AC or 234AC (see Stevron Frey). She would have been at least 13 years old when Stevron was born, which means she was born no later than 221 AC.

Death

Perra’s last child was born in 241AC the earliest (see Perrianne Frey). Perra’s husband, Walder Frey, had remarried by at least 249AC, since his eldest child with his second wife was born in 249AC the latest (see Jared Frey).

This means that Perra had been married to Lord Walder Frey at least from 234AC until 241AC. They might have gotten married earlier, there are no further indications for that. Since her husband had remarried by 249AC, this year is the last possible year for Perra to have been alive.

Concluded can be that Perra died in or between 241 AC and 249 AC.

Perriane Frey

Birth

Perianne is younger than her brother Aenys by at least one year. Aenys was born the earliest in 240AC (see Aenys Frey), meaning that Perianne’s earliest possible year of birth is 241AC.

Perianne is older than her younger brother Jared by at least one year. Jared was born in 249AC the latest, meaning that Perianne was born no later than one year before, in 248AC.

No further specifications can be given. Perianne was thus born in or between 241 AC and 248 AC.

Perwyn Frey

Birth

With his elder sister Tyta having been born in 269AC the earliest (see Tyta Frey), Perwyn cannot have been born earlier than 1 year later, thus 270AC.

Perwyn’s younger brother Olyvar was born in 281 AC (see Olyvar Frey). Between Perwyn and Olyvar are two brothers, meaning that Perwyn’s latest possible birth year is 278AC, three years before Olyvar.

No further specifications can be given. Perwyn was thus born in or between 270 AC and 278 AC.

Petyr Baelish

Birth

When Petyr Baelish was “scarcely 15”, Brandon Stark was 20 years old.[54] It is known that Brandon Stark died at the age of 20 in 282 AC.[73] This means that Brandon Stark was either

  • 19 turning 20 in 282AC, placing his birth in 262AC
  • 20 turning 21 in 282AC, placing his birth in 261AC

Petyr Baelish was described as “still shy of 30” in 298 AC.[54] This shows he was still 29 years old, leaving the options:

  • 28 turning 29 in 298AC, placing his birth in 269AC
  • 29 turning 30 in 298AC, placing his birth in 268AC

Note: “Still shy of 30” could suggest Petyr was even younger than 29. That would place his birth more recently in the timeline. Below will become clear why this is not an option.

When the sentence “scarcely 15” is used, is suggests that Petyr might not have actually been 15 years old, indicating that 14 is a possibility for the age Petyr had during his duel. If Petyr was indeed 14 years old, he would have been 14 while Brandon was 20. The possibilities for Brandon to have been 20 are:

  • When born in 261AC
    • 19 turning 20 in 281AC
    • 20 turning 21 in 282AC
  • When born in 262AC
    • 19 turning 20 in 282AC
    • 20 turning 21 in 283AC

Since it is known that Brandon dies in 282AC, the last option (20 turning 21 in 283AC) is immediately eliminated as a possible date for the duel. It is now known that Brandon could have been 20 during 281AC and 282AC.

So Petyr was 14 years old during the duel. His options of being 14 are:

  • If born in 268AC
    • 13 turning 14 in 282AC
    • 14 turning 15 in 283AC
  • If born in 269AC
    • 13 turning 14 in 283AC
    • 14 turning 15 in 284AC

The duel took place prior to Brandon’s death in 282AC, so in either 281AC or in 282AC, eliminating both the options of 283AC and 284AC. This completely eliminated the possibility that Petyr was bornin 269AC, or any later (and thus had been younger than 28 when Catelyn met him in 298AC). The only time when Petyr is 14 in either 281AC or 282AC is when he is 13 turning 14 in 282AC (if born in 268AC). This showes that Petyr was 14 while duelling Brandon Stark, and that he was born in 268AC.

Concluded can be that Petyr Baelish was born in 268 AC.

Note: Should Petyr have been younger than 29 during 298 AC, his nameday would have occurred later (269, 270 etc.). As seen above, it would not be possible for Petyr to be either 14 or 15 during the time Brandon was 20 if this was the case, since it would lead to Petyr being turning 14 after Brandon had already died.

Petyr Frey

Birth

According to Edmure Tully, Petyr is a year or two older than Robb Stark,[57] who was born in 283AC (see Robb Stark). Being one year older than Robb Stark would place Petyrs birth in 282AC, being 2 years older would place his birth in 281AC.

Petyr has a daughter, who was born in 294AC (see Perra Frey). With the minimum age of 13 at the birth of a firstborn child, this would place Petyr’s birth in 281AC or before.

Concluded can be that Petyr was born in 281 AC.

Podrick Payne

Birth

Podrick Payne was 12 years old in 299 AC.[74] That gives Podrick the following options:

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

No further specifications can be given. Podrick was thus born in either 283 AC or 287 AC.

Pycelle

Birth

Pycelle mentions he was 42 years old when he was chosen as King Aegon V’s Grandmaester.[1] He also mentions he served King Aegon V for a few short months, until Aegon’s death in 259 AC.[1] Pycelle was 84 years old in 300 AC.[1]

  • 41 turning 42 in 259AC, placing his birth in 217AC
  • 42 turning 43 in 259AC, placing his birth in 216AC

And

  • 83 turning 84 in 300AC, placing his birth in 216 AC
  • 84 turning 85 in 300AC, placing his birth in 215 AC

The only overlapping year is 216AC. This shows that Pycelle was born in 216 AC.

Pylos

Birth

Pylos is mentioned to have been no older than 25 in 299 AC.[75] Being 25 years old in 299AC gives the following options:

  • 24 turning 25 in 299AC, placing his birth in 274AC
  • 25 turning 26 in 299AC, placing his birth in 273AC

No further specifications can be given. Since Cressen is not certain whether Pylos is actually 25 years old in 299AC, but gives 25 as a maximum age for Pylos in 299AC, we can assume that Pylos is absolutely no older than 25 at that moment, but might be a few years younger. Thus it can be concluded that Pylos was born in either 273 AC or 274 AC, possibly a few years later.



Quentyn Martell

Birth

Quentyn Martell mentions he is 18 years old during 300 AC.[76] This leaves the options:

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

Quentyn received his knighthood at the age of 18.[77] This cannot have happened in 300 AC, since Quentyn refused his uncle Oberyn to knight him, accepting knighthood from Lord Anders Yronwood instead.[29] Oberyn Martell travelled away from Dorne in late 299 AC[64] and did not return alive, showing that Quentyn was knighted in 299 AC. If Quentyn was 18 in 299 AC as well as in 300 AC, Quentyn was thus 17 turning 18 in 300 AC and 18 turning 19 in 300 AC, placing his birth in 281 AC.

Quort

Birth

Quort was judged to be no older than 14 years old in 299 AC. He already has conceived a child.[78]. Since boys become fertile from the age of 12, Quort will have been between the ages of 12 and 14 in 299 AC, placing his birth in or between 285 AC and 287 AC.

Qyburn

Birth

Qyburn is mentioned to not be as old as Pycelle.[79] Pycelle was born in 216 AC (see Pycelle). This places Qyburn’s birth no earlier than 215 AC, but most likely later. No further specifications can be given.
