Hi, I don't think the word "extincted" exists. The right term is "extinct". Have a look here: extinct at Cheers!--Mad queen 15:50, 23 July 2007 (CDT)

Naming Targ Kings

Hey, I see you've been creating articles for the Targ kings. I think putting the name "Targaryen" in the title is redundant. There aren't any other dynasties with Valyrian names in the book, and general naming conventions call for kings to only go by their first name and their number, such as "Henry VIII" instead of "Henry VIII Tudor". Keeping the names shorter will make them easier to read and type. What do you think? -Crawdad 12:11, 24 April 2007 (CDT)

Acabo de leer tu mensaje en es.wikipedia :) no sabía que también estabas por aquí. Bueno, aquí por ahora lo único que he hecho ha sido mi página de usuario y rapiñar algunos textos, jeje. A ver si me pongo a colaborar también, que esta wiki está muy necesitada. --Fernando estel 15:55, 17 May 2007 (CDT)

Estermont family tree in error

Posted this on the article talk page, but you are the only one doing anything with these house pages, so I think it is prudent to post it here too. The family tree on that page is wrong, though that is understandable because the Estermont thing confused the Hell out of me at first too. Basically, Eldon Estermont is Cassana's brother not her father. Now, I know what you are thinking, AFFC appendix gives us Lord Eldon Estermont, Lord of Greenstone, and that is certainly true, but the crucial missing piece of information that GRRM has not, for some odd reason, deigned to tell us is that old Lord Estermont, first name never given, grandfather to Stannis, died at some point during ASOS or just after. Want some proof? Take a look at the appendix for A Storm of Swords under "The King on the Iron Throne." Part way down the first page you have Ser (as opposed to Lord) Eldon Estermont listed as Joffrey's grandmother's (Cassana's) brother. His son is given as Ser Aemon, so we know we are talking about the same person here. Under "The King in the Narrow Sea," we get Stannis's maternal uncle (Cassana's brother) Ser Lomas Estermont. Any uncle of Stannis is a brother of Joffrey's grandmother, so Lomas and Eldon are both brothers of Cassana and therefore sons of the Lord Estermont that ACOK and ASOS make clear is Stannis's grandfather. Confusing? Yes. Obvious when all laid out in one place? I think so. Indrian 13:01, 14 June 2007 (CDT)

I have posted again on the Estermont talk page and wanted to make sure you saw it. Indrian 22:19, 18 June 2007 (CDT)

Houses without info

Hey hairy bear, What should we do for houses of which little is known? For example House Jast and House Hetherspoon. Even with the non-canon info of Westeros on Coat of Arms and Words there is very little info. I think we should do something because there are a lot of links to them. (See at Special:Wantedpages). Basically the choice is:

  • Make a separate article for each house even thought there is not yet a lot of info
  • Gather all little known houses in one article (per region) with a separate headings for each house.

What is your opinion?
