The Vale
  • The Vale, or the Vale of Arryn, is one of the Seven Kingdoms. It was once an independent kingdom, before House Arryn surrendered to Aegon the Conqueror during Aegon's Invasion. The Vale is ruled by House Arryn from their castle called the Eyrie. The Vale is a very mountainous region, located on the eastern shore of Westeros, with some of the tallest peaks on the continent. Glacier fed rivers wind through its open valleys into the sea, creating long fjords with excellent harbors. The Fingers are long, rocky peninsulas that extend into The Narrow Sea. It was on these shores that the Andals first landed in Westeros, taking the Faith of the Seven with them. The Vale has kept close ties with its Andal heritage and are among the most pious in Westeros. The ruling house, House Arryn is one of the oldest lines of Andal nobility in Westeros, though many claim such ancestry. The Vale has always been isolated from the rest of Westeros because the Mountains of the Moon form a natural barrier, with dangerous mountain passes that are impassable in some seasons. These roads are also dangerous because of raids from the mountain clans, descendants of the First Men that have rejected the Arryns and their bannermen and live in the mountains and prey on travellers.
