Our latest episode on Summerhall is out! You can access the audio & video on our website here, or iTunes if you prefer that.
The Tragedy of Summerhall was a spectacular attempt by Aegon V to
hatch dragon eggs, and it failed spectacularly, killing most to all of
the participants plus at least some, probably most of, the witnesses.
Summerhall has some really surprising aspects to it, and explains quite a
lot more than we could’ve hoped it would, despite so much of it still
remaining mysterious. Not just in what happened, but in how it impacts
the more recent, and even the current, ASOIAF storyline.
This episode will have a second (shorter) part focusing on the aftermath of Summerhall, examining the effects on Aerys, Rhaegar, and the realm.
The primary topics in this first episode:
- History of Summerhall
- The Realm of Aegon V, Treason & Turmoil
- Dragon Dreams
- Enablers: The Wisdom & the Ghost
- The Ritual
