Nagga's hill is located on the island of Old Wyk in the Iron Islands. The hill overlooks Nagga's Cradle, the body of water between Old Wyk and Great Wyk. The ribs of Nagga, a dead sea dragon, rise from the ground like large white trees as wide as a dromond's mast and twice as tall.[1]

After the death of King Harren Hoare during Aegon's Conquest, priests of the Drowned God crowned the priest-king Lodos beneath Nagga's bones.[4][5]
