A Song of Ice and Fire

George R.R. Martin’s Westeros vs. Europe

Ever wondered just how large Westeros really is? Adam Whitehead at The Wertzone has posted up a comparison between the continent of Westeros from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series and the continent of Europe.

The result? BIG. The fantasy kingdoms would stretch from northern Africa up past the northern edge of Europe. (The map above is slightly inaccurate in this regard, which Whitehead explains.) Fittingly enough, the established climates in each area of Westeros fit this area nicely if the planet in Martin’s series is Earth-sized.

For larger version of the above map, as well as a gorgeous rendition of Westeros, visit Whitehead’s blog at the above link.
