50 Things You Didn't Know About A Song Of Ice And Fire

Realising that we don't all share his encyclopedic memory, George R. R. Martin's inclusion of a lengthy appendix at the end of each of his Song of Ice and Fire novels has been a life saver for many fans lost amongst the great houses of Westeros. We find ourselves digging through it after almost every chapter. However, a new tool has arrived to help us put together a richer picture of Martin's storied world. 

The World of Ice and Fire, written by George R. R. Martin, Elio M. García, Jr and Linda Antonsson is a vast tome that gives the untold history of Westeros and the Game of Thrones. Full of facts and family trees, it is the definitive companion volume to Martin's universe. Using this book, we've put together a list of 50 astonishing facts you might not have known about the war for the Iron Throne. Happy reading. 

The World of Ice and Fire, published by Harper Voyager, is out now
