Mossovy, also known as Far Mossovy, is a broad, forested region of northeastern Essos along the shore of the Shivering Sea. It is at the edge of the Known World, east of N'Ghai and north of the Cannibal Sands and the Grey Waste. The Thousand Islands are found north of the grim, grey forest.[1][2]

Culture

Mossovy is said to be a cold and dark land of shapechangers and demon hunters. It is unknown what lies beyond, although some septons claim the world ends beyond the forest.[3]

History

Sarnori ships sailed as east as Far Mossovy in the height of their power.[4]

Upon revealing to Alyssa Velaryon and Rogar Baratheon that she had wed her brother, King Jaehaerys I Targaryen, in 49 AC, Alysanne Targaryen remarked that even if she was sent to the ends of the earth and forced to marry "the King of Mossovy or the Lord of the Grey Waste", she would still find her way back to her new husband.[5]
