Re Corbray family
I am one of the guys who would like to get complete family trees for all houses in Westeros, so I can totally understand your wish to connect the known family members to each other.
In this case I think it is really likely that Quenton was Leowyn's son. But as you said it is not stated in the text. So even if we add it back, we need to make sure people know where this conclusion comes from.
Now to your points: While I love the MUSH trees (I think we both discussed MUSH things before F&B was published) and would love to see most of them become canon, F&B made it clear that it does not always reflect the true family relations (the Darrys are one example). So I do not doubt that Quenton's name was provided by GRRM himself, but are the relations the same as in canon? Then you say Leowyn and Corwyn are the two sons of an unknown Lord Corbray. We know they are brothers. I think that's it. We don't even know if Leowyn inherited Hearthome from his father or his mother. I think we don't even know that Leowyn and Corwyn were their parents only sons. Maybe Corwyn was just the third son and Quenton the son of a Corbray who died young. Another thing we don't know is that Quenton was Leowyn's immediate successor, there could have been another Lord Corbray in between. So many possibilities.
So do I think that Quenton being Leowyn's son and heir is the most likely scenario? Yes. Would I put it on the wiki as a fact? Not so sure yet. Maybe we can move the discussion to the forum and get more people involved.
- Hey Thomaerys,
- I just noticed you added 'possibly' to Leowyn Corbray' infobox in regard to his fatherhood of Quenton. With the facts stated on top of Quenton's article, do you see any way he could not be Leowyn's son?
- Personaly no. But haven't we gone through this already ? If I remember correctly after discussions with other editors in the forums, the final consensus was that we can't prove he was Leowyn's son and we had to delete the father-son link between Leowyn and Quenton I originally put when I created the family tree template for them. Am I misremembering ? --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 17:00, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
- I argued against it when I did not have all facts, but that changed. Quenton was a nephew of Corwyn and he was ahead in line of succession, so he must have been a nephew from an older brother. Now it is stated that Corwyn was a second son and younger brother of Leowyn. With that in mind I can see no way Quenton was not Leowyn's son. The Wondering Wolf (talk) 19:14, 23 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi! I see you've added the option "betrothed" to the character infoboxes, but perhaps you could discuss this first in the wiki thread? I definitely see value in mentioning the marriages of a person in the infobox, but for betrothals that did not end into marriages, I personally believe the infoboxes might not be the right place. So perhaps this can first be discussed among the editors on the thread? --Rhaenys Targaryen (talk) 21:54, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
Hi, I noticed you created a bastard shield for House Stark with the colors reversed and added it on the Brandon, Sara, and Lonnel Snow pages. The issue here is that reverse-sigils aren't a default thing for bastards. It's simply just something that bastards may choose to do as a workaround. Unless we know that they chose to use that sigil, it's incorrect. --Potsk (talk) 19:37, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Prince of Winterfell
I don't remember anything in ASoS stating that Karlon Stark was a Prince of Winterfell. Can you give an exact quote? The only mention of him I remember calls him a "a younger son of Winterfell", and the only mentions of "Prince of Winterfell" are by Bran referring to himself as that, and the appendix stating Theon's title. --Potsk (talk) 13:27, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
- I checked and you are correct Karlon is not mentioned as "Prince of Winterfell", only as "a younger son of Winterfell". I will rectify that. --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 17:08, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
Baratheon regnal numbers
Small council position templates
- I created those because we have a Hand of the King template. I think the cumbersome single small council template should be replaced with my new templates, but also with a separate template for each small council roster, so as to keep those memvbers of the council without a fixed title (like Nymeria Sand, Lord Rowan or Janos Slynt)--Gonzalo (talk) 20:29, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
- I agree. I would just add in parentheses the period when the character held the position, like I already did for the Grand Maester template. Maybe the single small council template was useful at the time of its creation, but given the amount of information we have on the subject now, it just became impractical in my opinion. --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 20:39, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
Re Cassella Vaith
While I consider it likely that said Lady Vaith was Cassella, I think the point of Dunk and Egg's talk was the behaviour to noble women in general. And as Yandel shows with the other mistresses, noble women are referred to as ladies. In the end we can not say if she was a ruling lady or not, so we should not state she was. I would prefer it to be clear, but I do not see it. If you want to get another opinion on the topic, you could take it to the wiki thread. The Wondering Wolf (talk) 18:08, 24 April 2020 (UTC)
Hey, I noticed you labled all the 'homage knights' from the graphic novel adaption as hedge knights, but I'm not sure about that. The list I saw does not elaborate on that and only tells they were knights. Did you see another list? The Wondering Wolf (talk) 19:16, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
- They are labeled as knights in the appendix of the graphic novel (see these screenshots). However, I'm not very versed in heraldry rules, so someone more knowledgeable than me could probably improve on what I noted for the coat of arms. Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 19:45, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
- Ser Maynard Plumm (aka Bloodraven) confirmed his presence at the Redgrass Field. He does not state for who Buford fought but he does not like the man, making Buford a Blackfyre supporter more likely. Plus, it is pretty suspicious that a Bulwer of Blackcrown came all the way to Whitewalls for a wedding. Lord Costayne presumably made the same journey as Buford for the wedding (Three Towers and Blackcrown are both close to Oldtown and vassals of the Hightowers) but at least Costayne has a good reason to be at the wedding given that he is the son-in-law of the groom.

- I'm from Wallonia (French-speaking part). I learned Dutch in school but it has been years since I last used it so I forgot a lot. Why? --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 15:09, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Where did you get the information from that the 3000 year old skull is a mistake, as far as i know its the skull of a dragon from before the doom that the targaryens brought with them when they left Valyria. I have even seen speculation that it was the skull of there very first dragon. Is this a confirmed mistake later corrected in newer prints? Or something that you just think is a mistake?--Direpupy (talk)
- The later. I may have jump the gun here. I guess it is possible Aenar the Exile took all the dragon skulls/dragonbone materials they had on Valyria before leaving for Dragonstone. But if so, why is there only nineteen skulls left ? The user "Zionius" on the forums is usually pretty good for everything related to changes in new prints and errata in general, maybe he knows better. --Thomaerys Velaryon (talk) 16:19, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
- I will ask him, unless you have already done that? As to the 19 skulls there are 26 know dragons from the conquest down to the dance of dragons so even if it was only the dragons after the conquest there would be 7 missing. I see no reason there being only 19 skulls means that there are no skulls from before the conquest. However since for know we do not know if the 3000 years is a mistake i am going to change back your changes for now, i hope you don't mind.--Direpupy (talk)
