Errata of The Lands of Ice and Fire
This page contains the errata for The Lands of Ice and Fire.
In his A Song of Ice and Fire series, George R. R. Martin uses the "unreliable narrator". As such, not all inconsistencies in the books that are mistakes. However, Martin has expressed that accidental mistakes can distract from the planned inconsistencies, making them less effective. As such, the pages indexed here represent a collection of gathered possible and confirmed mistakes and, if possible, their confirmed corrections within Martin's series.
What you will not find on this page are discussions of information from the So Spake Martins which contradicts with more recently released printed material, contradictions found in sample chapters from unreleased books (e.g. The Winds of Winter), or speculations about possible solutions.
Examples of what will not be found on the errata pages include:
- According to Osha, "the blue star in the rider's eye" of the constellation the Ice Dragon points north. However, when Bran Stark later recalls Osha's statement, he does so incorrectly: "The blue star in the dragon's eye pointed the way north, as Osha told him once."
- Differences in views on certain events. While the "commonly told story about the Battle of the Bells" apparently states that Robert I Baratheon and Jon Connington did not come face to face during the battle (as stated by Maester Yandel ["Rightly famed is Robert's grand victory at Stoney Sept, also called the Battle of the Bells, where he slew the famous Ser Myles Mooton—once Prince Rhaegar's squire—and five men besides, and might well have killed the new Hand, Lord Connington, had the battle brought them together."] and Harwin of Winterfell ["Robert came out of hiding to join the fight when the bells began to ring. He slew six men that day, they say. One was Myles Mooton, a famous knight who'd been Prince Rhaegar's squire. He would have slain the Hand too, but the battle never brought them together."]), Connington himself recalls it rather differently ("Bells and battle followed, and Robert emerged from his brothel with a blade in hand, and almost slew Jon on the steps of the old sept that gave the town its name.").
The Lands of Ice and Fire
- Sisterton is specified as being located on the island Sweetsister. The map of the north of Westeros from A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons places Sisterton on the middle island of the Three Sisters. However, The Lands of Ice and Fire portrays the islands Littlesister and Sweetsister in the incorrect order; While the map correctly places Sisterton upon the middle island, it incorrectly labels the middle island as Littlesister, and the eastern island as Sweetsister.
- Tower of Joy is not marked as a ruined castle. 
- Barrowtown and Old Ghis are incorrectly marked as cities in some maps.
- Ebonhead is marked as either a town or a city in different maps.
- Lotus Point is called "Lotus Port" in The Lands of Ice and Fire. Lotus Point is the correct name.
- The city Sathar is stated to be located at the juncture of two branches of the Sarne. On the maps of The Lands of Ice and Fire Sathar is not located on the Sarne, but on a separate river that flows north into the Bay of Tusks. The maps from The Lands of Ice and Fire show two rivers replacing the dried up sea mentioned in The World of Ice & Fire. The Lands of Ice and Fire is in error.
- Kingdom of the Ifequevron is misspelled as "Kingdoms of the Ifeqevron".
- Ghardaq is misspelled as "Ghazdaq" in the Slaver's Bay map.
- Titan of Braavos holds a broken sword in one hand and rests the other atop the ridge to his left, but the map shows it holding a spear in one hand and a shield in the other. 
- The door of the House of Black and White is white on the left side and black on the right, but the map shows the opposite.
- Eel Alley is described by Catelyn Stark as being on Visenya's Hill, but the map of King's Landing depicts the alley near Aegon's High Hill.
- Arya's journey map has her travelling from King's Landing to Harrenhal by the eastern shore of Gods Eye. However, she reached Gods Eye town on the southern shore. Then they travelled along the western shore of the lake, where they were captured by Gregor Clegane's men. They reached Harrenhal from the west side.
