Street of Silk
The Street of Silk is a street of King's Landing located on the Hill of Rhaenys leading up to the Dragonpit by the west. The street is known for its brothels of varying expense, including Chataya's brothel, the Blue Pearl, and Mother's.
Before departing King's Landing to marry old Lord Theomore Manderly in White Harbor, Princess Viserra Targaryen visited the brothels of the Street of Silk with her companions for "one last night of laughter". She died that night in a drunken horse race, however.
Prince Daemon Targaryen was a known patron of the brothels of the Street of Silk, and he was in one of them when he referred to his short-lived nephew, Baelon Targaryen, as the "heir for a day". Mushroom claims Daemon smuggled his niece, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, to go observe the sex workers. Daemon's paramour, Mysaria, was known to have been a dancing girl in King's Landing, so she may have worked in one of the brothels along the Street of Silk.
Dance of the Dragons
According to Mushroom, Ser Hugh Hammer celebrated his knighthood by visiting the brothels of the Street of Silk. He beat to death one of Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen's household knights after quarreling over the maidenhood of a woman.
Amid the riots of King's Landing, Gaemon Palehair was raised up as king by whores at a brothel on the Street of Silk. Gaemon's supporters were based out of the House of Kisses atop Rhaenys's Hill.
According to the rumors of the Maiden's Day curse, the "three Jeynes" (Jeyne Smallwood, Jeyne Mooton and Jeyne Merryweather) visited the brothels along the Street of Silk. The following year, other rumors claimed Lady Larra Rogare also visited the brothels.
