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.<ref>[[So Spake Martin]]: [http://www.westeros.org/Citadel/SSM/Entry/1319 TO BE CONTINUED (CHICAGO, IL; MAY 6-8) (MAY 6, 2001)]</ref> 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.

Background

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.[1] 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.[2] 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."[3]
  • 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."][4] 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."]),[5] 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.").[6]

Fire & Blood

Reign of the Dragon - The Wars of King Aegon I

  • It's indicated that "every castle" in Dorne was burned thrice in the Dragon's Wroth, including Sunspear, and that Visenya had burned it earlier,[7] but the ancient keep of House Martell, Sandship, didn't show any signs of burning.[8][9] George R. R. Martin agreed this was an issue, and expanded on it by providing the maesters several speculative explanations for why the Targaryens left Sunspear alone, as explained in The World of Ice & Fire.[10] However, when "Fire & Blood" was published, old drafts were used for this part, so Sunspear was also burned. The error may be corrected in later editions.[11]

Three Heads Had the Dragon - Governance Under King Aegon I

  • Adjudicated is misspelled as ajudicated once in the UK version (UK hardcover, page 44. The error is not present in the US version).[12]

The Sons of the Dragon

  • While the novella The Sons of the Dragon says "Though half a dozen hatchlings had been born amidst the fires of Dragonstone in the later years of Aegon’s reign.",[13] Fire & Blood states "Though a dozen hatchlings had been born amidst the fires of Dragonstone in the later years of Aegon's reign".[14]
  • The World of Ice & Fire states that the Kingsguard Ser Raymont Baratheon saved Aenys I Targaryen from a murder attempt by two Poor Fellows. However, name of the Kingsguard who saved Aenys is not given in Fire & Blood.[14]
  • House Myatt is removed from the pious houses that Maegor burned the seats of in the westerlands.[13][14]
  • It is said that no Dornish lords supported the Vulture King during the Second Dornish War, but Lord Walter Wyl is known to have supported him.[14]
  • It is claimed that Jaehaerys Targaryen, instead of Aerea Targaryen, was "the rightful heir by all the laws of the Seven Kingdoms".[14] However, a daughter comes before an uncle according to customs.[15] In the novella version, the expression is that Jaehaerys was "felt by many to be the rightful heir".[13]

Prince into King - The Ascension of Jaehaerys I

  • It is said the dungeons of King's Landing were emptied in 48 AC, following the end of Maegor I's reign.[16] However, when Jaehaerys Targaryen emptied the dungeons again in 50 AC, there were still men imprisoned by Maegor I.[17]

The Year of The Three Brides - 49 AC

A Time of Testing - The Realm Remade

  • When describing the seven speakers that Jaehaerys sends to preach Exceptionalism, the septons are described with a contradiction for Septon Alfyn, as he is called a "young septon", but in the same sentence also "fierce old Septon Alfyn": "Three were young septons; cunning Septon Baldrick, learned Septon Rollo, and fierce old Septon Alfyn".[17]
  • It is stated "the year (51 AC) continued without further crisis or test as Jaehaerys and Alysanne settled in to rule".[17] However, Alysanne was almost killed in Maidenpool at the end of 51 AC in next chapter.[20] In fact, this chapter was supposed to happen in 50 AC in the draft.[21][22]

Jaehaerys and Alysanne - Their Triumphs and Tragedies

  • "Cove" is misspelled as "cover" once in the text: "this was a vessel meant for deep waters, not bays and covers and inland shallows."[23]

The Long Reign - Jaehaerys and Alysanne: Policy, Progeny, and Pain

  • When discussing Corlys Velaryon and the wealth of House Velaryon, House Velaryon is said to have become the wealthiest house of the Seven Kingdoms for a while following the first voyage.[24] Later on, it is stated that House Velaryon became the wealthiest house following Corlys's ninth voyage.[25]
  • Prince Gaemon Targaryen was born in 73 AC and died "died a few days into the new year, not quite three moons old".[24] However, the context suggested he died at the same year.
  • The name of Prince Valerion Targaryen is once misspelled as "Velarian" (US hardcover, page 305), which is corrected in the kindle version.
  • Prince Vaegon Targaryen is called the third son of Jaehaerys I and Alysanne Targaryen, while he actually is the fourth son of the king and queen, having two older living brothers (Aemon and Baelon) and one deceased older brother, Aegon.
  • Princess Rhaenys Targaryen is said to have learned that she was pregnant shortly before the ninth day of the third month of 92 AC.[24] That would suggest that the child would be born, following a nine month pregnancy, in 92 AC as well. However, the child, Laena Velaryon is specified to have been born in 93 AC.[25]

Heirs of the Dragon - A Question of Succession

The Dying of the Dragons

Aftermath - The Hour of the Wolf

  • When the riverlords entered King's Landing two days after King Aegon II Targaryen's death, they were welcomed by "Ser Gyles Belgrave and four other Kingsguard".[37] However, later during Cregan Stark's trials, it is revealed there were only four Kingsguard in King's Landing: "Three of Belgrave's Sworn Brothers had been present at King Aegon's death and were similarly condemned, though their complicity in the plot could not be proved (the three Kingsguard who were not in the city were judged innocent)."[39]

Under the Regents

  • The son of Lord Borros Baratheon and Lady Elenda Caron is named "Olyver Baratheon" on numerous occasions,[36][37] and said to have been named for Lady Elenda's father. However, Lady Elenda's father is identified as "Royce Caron".[32] Furthermore, elsewhere Olyver's name is misspelled as "Olyvar".[32]
  • It's claimed the Three Widows (Johanna Lannister, Elenda Baratheon, and Samantha Hightower) were the first to leave after King Aegon III's wedding.[32] However, only Johanna could leave at that time, since Elenda didn't come to the wedding, and Samantha's leave was described later.
  • When the council discussed whether Rhaena or Baela should be Aegon's heir, Leowyn Corbray first said "Lady Rhaena would make a splendid queen," then said "Baela flew a dragon, Rhaena only has the hatchling," contradicting himself.[32] It seems the latter claim could be from Manfryd Mooton, the only regent present whose voice was not recorded.
  • It is stated Ser Willis Fell and two other kingsguards died in the Winter Fever, also the naming of Regis Groves' successor was interrupted by the Winter Fever,[32] leaving four empty positions in the kingguard. However, both King Aegon III and Unwin Peake only filled two empty positions later.[40]
  • In 133 AC, Unwin Peake is claimed to "would rule the Seven Kingdoms in all but name for the best part of three years, serving as Lord Regent, Protector of the Realm, and Hand of the King."[40] However, he only ruled as Lord Regent, Protector of the Realm, and Hand of the King for nearly two years, till 134 AC.[41]
  • At one place "gallery" is misspelled as "galley" ("She sparkled," Mushroom says, "and when she smiled, the singers in the galley rejoiced, for they knew that here at last was a maid worthy of a song.").[40]
  • Corwyn Corbray is incorrectly referred to as "Lord Corbray" once.(The court rejoiced when Lady Rhaena announced that she was with child by Lord Corbray) [40]
  • Dalton Greyjoy claimed four of Lord Farman’s daughters as salt wives,[42][30] however, later it says he had only taken two of the late Lord Farman’s daughters.[41]

The Lysene Spring and the End of Regency

  • It is stated Manfryd Mooton is "the last of King Aegon’s original regents".[43] However, Grand Maester Munkun is the last of King Aegon’s original regents.
  • Elenda Caron's given name is two times misspelled 'Elendra'.[43]
  • "Forbearance" is misspelled as "forebearance"("Many and more have wondered at the seeming forebearance of the new Hand and his allies during this stalemate."), and "voluble" misspelled as "voluable".("Ser Gareth Long was the most voluable")[43]
  • Robert Rowan is referred to as "Lord"("High in the Mountains, the unthinkable happened one night as Lord Robert and his men huddled about in their campfires.").[43] However, as Robert's father, Lord Rowan, is still alive, Robert should not have been given the title "Lord".
  • It is stated George Graceford named Ser Victor Risley among the conspirators. However, later it revealed Ser Gareth Long was the "first and foremost of those who had named Risley part of the plot".[43]
