"A Thousand Eyes, and One" is a song about one of the Great Bastards, Brynden Rivers.[1]

The name of the song comes from a traditional saying of his time as Hand of the King: How many eyes does Lord Bloodraven have? A thousand eyes, and one. The saying is a reference to Rivers' extensive network of informants (a thousand eyes), and the loss of one of his own eyes to his halfbrother, Ser Aegor Rivers, making it "a thousand eyes, and one".[2]
