Game of Thrones: George RR Martin reveals where he would live in Westeros or Essos
The fantasy book series is full of bustling cities, towns and settlements all created by Martin’s imagination.
But given the choice, just where would the Game of Thrones author choose to live?
Perhaps King’s Landing, Winterfell or even Volantis to the East? But surely not The Wall?
Now Martin has revealed the location of his choice in a new interview.
Speaking with the New York Times, Martin said: “Oh, I would probably — the free city of Braavos in Essos would be a cool place to live.”
According to the Game of Thrones Wiki, Braavos is “is the northern-most, the richest, and arguably the most powerful of the Free Cities.
“Described as a city of seafarers and master swordsmen, Braavos consists of hundreds of tiny islands connected by stone bridges.
“Its main landmarks include the Titan of Braavos, the House of Black and White and the city’s famed Iron Bank.
“Braavos is heavily inspired by some Renaissance Europe’s mercantile republics, of which Venice is the most famous.”
Martin continued: “And the people in Westeros are fighting their individual battles over power and status and wealth.
“And those are so distracting them that they’re ignoring the threat of ‘winter is coming,’ which has the potential to destroy all of them and to destroy their world.
“And there is a great parallel there too, I think, what I see this planet doing here, where we’re fighting our own battles.
“We’re fighting over issues, important issues, mind you — foreign policy, domestic policy, civil rights, social responsibility, social justice.”
