Thus all dates are "BC" for "Before Conquest" or "AC" for "After Conquest".
Territories and their rulers: House Stark, the North (white); House Arryn, the Vale of Arryn (dark grey); House Frey, the Riverlands (dark blue); House Greyjoy, the Iron Islands (dark yellow); House Lannister, the Westerlands (dark red); House Tyrell, the Reach (green); House Durrandon, the Stormlands (yellow); House Martell, Dorne (orange) House Targaryen, the Crownlands (brown); Night King (formerly the Free Folk), Beyond the Wall (light blue); Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, the Gift and the Wall (black) The debt crisis with the Iron Bank of Braavos reaches a breaking point: with far less confidence in Cersei than Tywin, the bank starts calling in its loans - which the Iron Throne cannot possibly repay.
A few other hour names have been mentioned in passing: The timeline of the books is broadly similar to that of the TV series, with several minor differences.
Several younger characters - most notably Jon Snow, all of the Stark children and Daenerys Targaryen - are two to three years older than their book equivalents, which has required the date of Robert's Rebellion to be pushed back from fifteen to seventeen years before the events of the series begin.
At the time of the novels, Westeros has been using a calendar system based on the year of Aegon's Landing, which occurred three centuries before.
As explained above, calling it "Aegon's Landing" (AL) is somewhat anachronistic given that the "landing" happened at the beginning of the conquest but the calendar system only begins two years later, at the end of the conquest - more recent in-universe historical texts have been shifting to the alternate name "After Conquest" (AC).
Other characters are older (Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon are ten years older than their book counterparts) or younger (Ser Vardis Egen is decades younger than in the book, while Theon is two years younger), though for the most part this has no bearing on the timeline.
The oldest written histories in Westeros were made by the Andal invaders, and they depicted themselves in a positive light as they killed or conquered the First Men of the south.
Many of the events before 6,000 years ago in Westeros, during the Age of Heroes, are half-legendary, and some of the more fanciful tales of these times probably have little basis in reality.
Still, all legends and oral histories may have some kernel of truth behind them. Martin himself, is that as the saying goes, history tends to be written by the victors.
Each "day" apparently consists of a 24 hour period - simply so that Martin would not confuse readers when he referred to a certain amount of hours in the narrative.
People in Westeros apparently just apply colloquial names to each hour of the day, i.e., the "hour of the wolf" is the darkest time in the middle of the night.
