Game of Thrones RQ
The Culture of Westeros
Westeros is a vast continent, each of the Seven Kingdoms a mighty realm in its own right. From the First Men to the Valyrians, invaders have left their mark, and wars and raiding have changed things further. The culture of the lands changes from place to place and over time, sometimes with surprising speed. This living world cannot be trapped in amber.
As a result, this chapter can only deal with general patterns. Probably nowhere in Westeros is everything said here true, and everything said here is likely false somewhere. Still, south of the Wall, not everything here is false, either. This chapter serves to give you a cultural bearing in a complex world.
