Carcosa is a legendary city in far eastern Essos. It is located on the southeastern shore of the Hidden Sea within the Mountains of the Morn; the City of the Winged Men is situated on the northwestern shore.[1] The sorceror lord claiming to be the 69th yellow emperor of Yi Ti lives in exile at Carcosa.[2]

Behind the scenes

Carcosa and its yellow emperor are references by George R. R. Martin to Carcosa, a city in "An Inhabitant of Carcosa" by Ambrose Bierce, The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers, and the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft.[3]
