This blog is written by an avid Song of Ice and Fire fan and history buff for other Song of Ice and Fire fans who may be interested in the real-world history that inspired the Song of Ice and Fire characters and events. My primary qualification is my own passion and research. I don’t claim to be an authority; merely a fan eager to share my theories and insights in a manner I hope will be constructive for everyone. I’m so excited that you decided to check out my blog, and I hope that you will stay awhile and make yourself at home!
