He’s moreover acknowledged to have had 100 sons, which is fairly potential considering how loads the boys of Westeros are more likely to sleep spherical, and it’s assumed these have been all to utterly completely different women.

Dwelling Hoare of Orkmont dominated the Iron Islands sooner than the Greyjoys. When Aegon conquered the Seven Kingdoms and took down the ruling family of the Iron Islands, he allowed the Ironborn to select their new chief and they also chosen Vickon Greyjoy of Pyke. This was the beginning of Dwelling Greyjoy ruling the Iron Islands correct by way of to the current sequence as everyone knows it.
In meaning, the Iron Islands are additional of a democracy than lots of the areas in Westeros, which is odd to think about considering the rest of Westeros tends to view them as backwards. And true, not every new ruler is elected, nevertheless the Greyjoys have been initially.
Eight Yara’s Title Is Asha
She wasn’t unnoticed of the current, per se, nevertheless she was absolutely modified. Asha Greyjoy throughout the books was modified to Yara Greyjoy throughout the current, the writers saying that Asha sounded too similar to Osha and different folks could get confused between the characters. It’s wise, nevertheless that wasn’t all they modified. Although George R.R. Martin firmly says that Asha is heterosexual, Yara Greyjoy is certainly not since she reveals attraction within the route of women all by the current. She’s a carefully altered character, possibly bringing some much-needed LGBTQA illustration to Sport Of Thrones.
Can’t fault the writers for that one.
7 Balon Wished Her As Heir
Although Balon’s relationship with Theon is depicted as pretty harmful throughout the current too, the entire extent of it is unnoticed simply because we don’t see very lots of Balon and resulting from this reality, don’t see how he actually feels about Theon. Pressured to supply his son up as a hostage to the Starks after the Greyjoy stand up, he’s left resenting Theon deeply throughout the books no matter Theon bearing no responsibility for this consequence. He actively wants Theon was lifeless so he can declare his daughter, Asha, heir of the Iron Islands and be executed with all of it.
Yikes. Poor Theon. It’s easy to see why the person’s a bit tousled in any case this.

5 As Was Victarion
Victarion is a brother of Balon Greyjoy, and has been decrease from the current altogether.
He was very loyal to Balon throughout the books, seemingly supporting his rule over the Iron Islands whatever the discord ceaselessly present throughout the family. He was very religious and fought throughout the Greyjoy stand up. Like a lot of the Ironborn, he used an axe when it acquired right here to battles, although he was skilled with a longsword too. It could be safely assumed he was a fairly superior warrior, so it’s a shame we didn’t get to see him do his stuff on-screen.
He moreover had a fairly troubling feud collectively along with his brother Euron…
4 Meaning Euron And Victarion’s Earlier Isn’t Talked About

three The Historic previous Of The Silence…
Speaking of Euron being tousled.
His ship often known as The Silence and although it’s not exactly decrease from the current, the crew nearly are. Euron sailed spherical Essos and is alleged to have gone even extra on this ship, accumulating artifacts and secrets and techniques and strategies. The rationale Euron is shrouded in loads thriller is because of his crew retains his secrets and techniques and strategies. He makes sure of it. How? By decreasing out their tongues.
That’s correct. Every crew member on his ship is minus one tongue. Someway, it doesn’t seem worth to pay to sail spherical with Euron. Nevertheless it should appear they didn’t get loads choice throughout the matter.
2 Euron’s Magical Horn
The ruins of Valyria is one place that Euron is alleged to have gone, and to the kingsmoot, he launched with him one factor he found there: a dragon horn.
It’s apparently known as Dragonbinder. The place Daenerys expert her dragons with a rope and a whip, Euron acknowledged this might presumably be used to control dragons. Daenerys did say that the dragonlords of Valyria used sorcerous horns to control their dragons, so it seems as if this one could also be legit. It’s under no circumstances been talked about throughout the current, so it more than likely gained’t play a element in controlling any dragons in season eight. Nonetheless, throughout the books, it merely could.
1 And His Dragon Egg
As if Euron didn’t have adequate treasures, one different issue he claims to have is a dragon egg.
He apparently found this too in Valyria nevertheless when questioned if he nonetheless has it, says he threw it into the ocean in a match of rage. This isn’t questioned loads extra, because of Euron is unstable, nevertheless throughout the books he’s painted as a far more manipulative, clever man – spawning theories from followers that he might have used the egg for one factor else (want to pay for Balon’s assassination).
Alas, we’ll more than likely need to attend for The Winds Of Winter to hunt out out if these theories keep any weight.
