Maps of Westeros and Essos - Game of Thrones Modern Maps
If you love the world of Game of Thrones as much as we do, we're sure you have some idea where the different towns and castles are located. But for real fans, we recommend having a look at one of the many maps available out there. Because where exactly did George R.R. Martin put Dragonstone in relation to King's Landing? How far is the ride from Winterfell to Castle Black? And how far did Daenarys sail her Dothrakis to get to Westeros?
Take a look at these maps showing famous locations from Game of Thrones
The capital of the Seven Kingdoms turns out to be awfully close to anyone setting up base in Dragonstone. You can see the geographics of the Battle of Blackwater Bay as well as Tarth, Brienne's home island.
Andalos lies on the western coast of Essos and used to be the homeland of the Andals. To the north you can find the richest of the Free Cities, Braavos. Other Free Cities on the map are Lorath, Pentos, Norvor and Qohor.
On a offshoot from the Kingsroad, you'll find Winterfell, home to the Starks and the Warden of the North. Continue north to reach Castle Black at The Wall. To the west you'll find Bear Island, home to House Mormont (Lyanna and Ser Jorah) and Deepwood Motte, home to House Glover. To the east is The Dreadfort, the stronghold of Ramsay Bolton & Co as well as Karhold, home of the Karstarks.
One of the great trading cities of Essos is Qarth, located in the eastern parts of the continent.
Bay of Dragons
Formerly known as Slaver's Bay, this was the area where Daenarys liberated the slaves from their masters. The most known and most powerful city is Meereen in the north, famous for its pyramids and previous base of Miss Targaryen. A bit further south is Yunkai, whose main export are bedslaves and furthest south is Astapor, where Dany freed and acquired the Unsullied.
The first of the Free Cities lies on the southern coast of Essos where the Rhoyne meets the Summer Sea. Founded by the Valyrian Freehold.
The Iron Islands
Home of the Greyjoys is the Iron Islands, with Pyke being the name of the main island as well as the Greyjoys castle. To the east you can find The Twins and Riverrun.
To get to The Eyrie and see the moon door you have to pass through the Bloody Gate. Famous home to House Arryn. Another famous spot is Harrenhal, the largest castle in Westeros. This is for example where Arya, Gendry and Hot Pie were taken prisoners. Again here you can find The Twins, home to House Frey and the Red Wedding.
In the southernmost part of Westeros lies Dorne, the kingdom that is home to the Dornish. On the eastern side you'll find Sunspear, home to House Martell. In the west is Blackmont, a holdfast and home of House Blackmont. You can also spot Highgarden, home of House Tyrell and the capital of the Reach.
The ancestral stronghold of House Lannister is Casterly Rock. A major gold mine is located right under it and provides the Lannisters with their wealth. The main city of the region is Lannisport. Close by is Clegane's Keep, and you guessed it, home of House Clegane.
