Born amidst salt and smoke- Just off the Long Island Expressway- Beneath a bleeding star...

#TPTWP return to the abyss that is the tiny grey area of interest between the super-hit television adaptation and the source material fantasy novels- an abyss that forges these two mediums together and creates a glob of chit-chatting that interests both book-readers and show-watchers the same. If anyone can do it, it be The Princes That Were Promised.

The Wardens of Long Island return to tackle the Prelude to The War of the Usurper that is Rickard Stark and his Southron Ambitions. Are the Southron Ambitions a enormously complex plan to overthrow the Targaryen dynasty? Or are they simply Rickard Stark's desire to travel South during the really rough parts of Winter because his bones are aching and he doesn't quite feel as young as he used to and he would like to see some hot Dornish ladies in the medieval equivalent of bikinis before his idiot son (and heir) does something stupid with that old-gods-damn juvenile temper and complete lack of foresight and the tempertantrum in question puts Rickard in a position where he has to deal with problems he believed he was done dealing with once BenJen was chamberpot-trained?

Join John and SeannieWan as they metaphorically tear the roof off the son of a bitch that is the Stark Men!

The artwork for this episode of #TPTWP is titled ‘Brandon Stark- The Wild Wolf' and was created by Mike Hallstein. More of Mr. Hallstein’s incredible work can be found- Right The F’ Here…

The Princes That Were Promised are John and SeannieWan. Every week they tear apart Westeros and sift through the pieces to bring their Leal and Loyal Subjects the history of the Realm and The Known World from both George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones.

The Tourney at Harrenhal

Pomp, Circumstance, The High Lords, and The Knight of The Laughing Tree

#TPTWP Royally Recorded this episode shortly after the conclusion of Season 6 of Game of Thrones. The material that tells us the story of both The Tourney at Harrenhal and The Knight of The Laughing Tree, however, can only be found in the source material, specifically A Storm of Swords.

While there are a plethora of clues both large and small that point to Jon Snow being the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, the story of the infamous (and... famous) Tourney at Harrenhal and The Knight of The Laughing Tree were the best source to the romance between The Prince of Dragonstone and The Lady of Winterfell. That is, they were until HBO's adaptation, Game of Thrones, came out and told viewers that R + L = J was both true AND a legit and lawful marriage, making Jon Snow a legit and lawful heir to the Iron Throne.

The cover art for this episode is titled The Knight of The Laughing Tree and was created by Austrailian artist Modji-33. Find more fantastic work HERE

The Most Promising Promise of All Promises

Lyanna said 'Promise me, Ned,' and Ned was like, 'Awwww mannn.'

The Royal Vacation From Recording and Editing of 2017 is nearly at its conclusion. The Princes That Were Promised are well-rested and eager to dive back into their Royal Responsibilities.

As #TPTWP prepare the next series of podcast episodes, including the Game of Thrones Season 7 Retrospective, another Classic episode from the Royal Archives will help see you through the night... For the night is dark and full of terrors...

This episode was part of #TPTWP series covering Lord Eddard Stark, The Lord of Winterfell, and The Warden of The North. It covers The Promise that Ned made to his sister Lyanna as she lay dying and what that promise ultimately meant to his life. In addition, a Royal candle is held up to the details and mechanics surrounding The Promise.

R + L = J In a World Where R + L = J, Part 2

The 2nd Part to an Unnecessary Argument

R + L = J has been the really bad cover for the biggest spoiler in A Song of Ice and Fire as well as HBO's adaptation. While clues were hidden thoughtfully throughout #GRRM's saga, and #GRRM has yet to finish a book that would have prevented a television show from spoiling his greatest reveal, the television show had to take a far more subtle approach. That approach was little to no mention of any clues audibly, and some background visual clues that are very difficult to pick up.

John and SeannieWan return well over a year ago... so Back to the Past... to finish up their in-depth, detail-oriented study of The Theory that became The Assumption, that was The Truth.

Cover art is Winter Is Coming by Dame DeBrume. Check out more of her work.
