Braavosi is a language spoken in the Free City of Braavos. Like the languages of all Free Cities the language is a form of bastard Valyrian.[1][2][3]


Braavosi retains some words and phrases from High Valyrian in its pure form, including valar morghulis (all men must die) and valar dohaeris (all men must serve).[4]
