What’s west of Westeros?

by birtanpublished on August 24, 2020

In season six of Game of Thrones ayah says she wants to go west of Westeros to see the edge of the world west of Westeros is where all the maps stop no one knows what's beyond the sunset sea but some have tried to find out one of I is ancestors Brandon the shipwright

Sailed west across the sunset sea and he was never seen again his tomb in Winterfell is empty some crazy Ironborn on the island of lonely light believe there's a paradise in the West land without winter or want but all

They've ever found his boundless Gracie one of Daenerys his ancestors Queen Rainey's Targaryen plans to fly her dragon across the sea but she and her dragon died before she could try so the sunset sea is a mystery but there's one

Person who went further west than anyone else 250 years ago Alyssa farmen was the daughter of the Lord of Fair Isle an island off the westerland's by the sunset sea ELISA was kind of like Arya a rebellious wild

Spirited girl she was an archer and a singer loved horses and dogs but a great love was sailing she spent most of her childhood on ships as a teenager she sailed her own boat voyaging north to Bear Island and south to the Yabba but a

Dream was to sail west and find strange lands beyond the sunset sea Alyssa's brother Andrew married Rena Targaryen a widowed queen of two different kings it was weird that a queen would marry into a minor noble family like the farm uns

And Andrew was a pretty unimpressive husband Raina didn't seem that into him she was closer with Alyssa it's hinted that Reyna was gay and the she and Alyssa were in love so for a year Reyna and Alyssa and friends lived

On Fair Isle there were the center of court life and went on joy rides on rayna's dragon dream fire but the Lord of Fair Isle got sick of reina dominating his Island and of her dragon eating his shape so he asked her to

Leave he wanted Alyssa to stay and get but like Arya Alisa didn't want to marry some Lord so she left home with Raina for a month they mooched off the Lannisters of Casterly Rock and enjoyed the

Hospitality of the wealthiest house in Westeros but it turned out shockingly that the Lannisters were scheming so Rana and ko left the rock and toured the westerland's and Riverlands for a while as the young daughter of a minor noble

Family ELISA got to travel across Westeros with her love the dragon queen but eventually Reyna settled on Dragonstone the Targaryen island and ELISA wasn't happy there she wanted to build a ship

And returned to her wide Western seas Raina refused and that relationship broke down so ELISA left Dragonstone and on her way out she stole three of rayna's dragon eggs ELISA went to Pentos and Braavos and

Sold the eggs to the Sealord of Braavos she used the money to build the ship of her dreams the Sun chaser designed for deep waters and long voyages ELISA planned to sail west the Targaryen meanwhile lost their

Shit the theft of their eggs meant that someone outside their family could get dragons which is like someone outside your country getting nukes they hope that without the heat of Dragonstone their eggs will turn to stone

That way some spice monger and pentose will only have three very costly stones hundreds of years later in book one of Game of Thrones Illyrio mopatis a cheese monger of Pentos gives an heiress three dragon

Eggs which he says have turned to stone three stone eggs from a manga in Pentos the language is the same hinting that Danny's eggs are the same eggs that ELISA stole hundreds of years ago Daenerys is whole story might not have

Happened if it weren't for ELISA Farman but no author George Martin does say that this is meant to be ambiguous not certain but ELISA built her ship the Sunchaser and from Braavos she sailed down the

Narrow Sea dodging pirates went around dawn and came to Old Town the city of the city and the Hightower oh listen you that the tug Aryans were hunting her for their eggs but she needed a crew people who

Believed in her mission to find new lands in the West which was difficult because many people believe that the world just ends in the West with walls of fire and boiling sea saw black fogs that go on forever but the maesters and

North Georgia Martin say that the world of Game of Thrones is round like ours so if the West must eventually connect to the Far East to the lands of VT and a shy Western trade route to these places would be worth a fortune in silks and

Spices but Alyssa's dream was bigger than money she believed that the world was far larger and far stranger than the maesters imagined she envisioned new undiscovered lands in between Westeros and Essos with Sundering rivers and

Plains green Islands strange beasts and golden Cities beneath strange stars Westeros is kind of like Britain esos is like Europe and Asia and Sethe oreos like Africa so maybe there's a continent to the west like America ELISA hoped to

Find it as she looked for a crew Eustace and Norman Hightower came to question her but ELISA convinced them to join her mission adding their ships to hers she gathered a crew and just as the targaryen were closing in ELISA left old

Town with three ships and sailed west three years later one ship returned Eustace and his ship came ragged and exhausted back to old town and Eustace told the story of Alyssa's voyage he said that at first it was smooth sailing

But a month in they were hit by storms Norman's ship was struck by lightning and sank some sailors said they saw a Kraken but Elissa and Eustace ships survived and they found land three small islands farther to the west than any

Known land ELISA named the islands Aegon Visenya and Rey nice so rainy star Garion who died before she got to fly West had an island named for her in the Far sunset sea ELISA explored her new Isle

And found new spices pink fruits and huge gray lizards with a venomous bites ELISA wanted to sail further west to discover more new land but Eustace and his crew was scared and then turned back home he Eustace spent a year stuck on

Sethe oreos and his crew almost all died but some summer Islanders helped them back to old town go watch our video about Sethe oreos and the east as for Alissa she vanished to the west still searching for lands beyond the sunset

Sea she was never seen again except decades later a famous Mariner called Corliss valerian visited a shy in the Far Far East and there he glimpsed an old and weathered ship that he said could only have been Sunchaser Alyssa's

Ship so maybe Alissa made it all the way across the world she could have seen new lands and crossed the Americas before arriving at a shy from the east and one theory goes further in book – daenerys

Meets quaithe a shadow binder from a shy and Quaithe says to go north you must journey south to reach the west you must go east just like Alisa goes west to reach the east so some fans speculate that Quaithe

Is Alyssa that she learned magic in a shy and lengthened her life just like Melisandre of a shy lengthens her life may be the reason why quite felissa helps Daenerys is because she reminds her of Reina the dragon queen who Alisa

Once loved the whole reason why Quaithe comes to Dani in the first place is to see her dragons the Dragons that hatched from the eggs that Alyssa stole so this is just speculation but it's possible that

Alyssa farmen still lives as a two hundred and fifty year old magician with a cool mask and a love for geography it's also possible that Alyssa just died at sea or on some unknown land but what we do know is that Alyssa rebelled

Against her family and loved a dragon Queen she traveled across Westeros and beyond following a dream to see sights yet on and maybe rebellious aiya could do the same like ELISA she could reject the

Life that others chose for her she could escape the violence and horror that she suffered like ELISA aya could sail west chasing the Sun of course circumnavigating the globe takes more than an adventurous spirit naval

Navigation without modern technology involves a lot of math geometry trigonometry astronomy but people have done it for thousands of years the ancient Greeks accurately calculated the size of the earth Columbus and Magellan

Knew that the world was round maybe Elissa farmen did too and that's how she knew there was land to the west maybe Elissa farmen used brilliant brilliant is a learning site with interactive challenges teaching maths
