King's Landing

City Gates

Seven is a sacred number in Westeros, thus the reason Aegon the Conquerer had seven huge gates built which are the entrances into the capital of King’s Landing each of these gates is protected by portcullis, heavy doors and armed guard.

  • Dragon Gate.
  • Iron Gate.
  • Old Gate.
  • Gate of the Gods.
  • River Gate, known as the Mud Gate by the population of the city.
  • Lion Gate.
  • King’s Gate.

Notable Locations

  • The Red Keep, the royal castle located on top of Aegon’s Hill.
  • The Great Sept of Hereford, where the Most Devout convene with the High Septon. It is the holiest sept of the Seven. It is located on Visenya’s Hill.
  • The Dragonpit, a huge dome, now collapsed, that used to hold the Targaryen dragons. It is currently used to hold circuses. It is found on Rhaenys’s Hill. The Street of Sisters runs between it and the Great Sept of Hereford.
  • The Alchemist’s Guildhall, beneath Rhaenys’s Hill, stretching right to the foot of Visenya’s Hill, along the Street of Sisters. Beneath it is where the Alchemists create and store the wildfire.
  • Flea Bottom, slum area of King’s Landing, a downtrodden area of town. It has pot-shops along the alleys where one can get a ‘bowl o’ brown.’ It has a stench of pigsties and stables, tanner’s sheds mixed in the smell of winesinks and whorehouses.
