K'Dath is a semi-legendary city supposedly located in a plain located in far eastern Essos.


K'Dath is east of the Bleeding Sea and north of the Land of the Shrykes. Farther to the southwest are the Five Forts. To the southeast of K'Dath are Bonetown and the Dry Deep, while to the northeast is the Grey Waste.[1]


The inhabitants of K'Dath claim the city is the first and oldest in the world.[2] It is said that K'Dath is the site of unspeakable rites performed to slake the hunger of mad gods and that even the Shrykes that dwell in the lands south of the city fear it.[3]

Behind the Scenes

K'Dath has not yet been mentioned in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, only appearing in The Lands of Ice and Fire and A World of Ice and Fire. Its name is a reference by George R. R. Martin to Kadath, a fictional place in the works of H. P. Lovecraft.[4]
