Lannisport , lying near Casterly Rock, is the chief settlement of the region and one of the great ports and cities of Westeros.
Bastards in the westerlands are given the surname Hill. The crownlands are lands ruled directly by the Lord of the Seven Kingdoms.
These lands include King's Landing and the surrounding areas, including Duskendale and Rosby. The crownlands are south of the Vale, southeast of the riverlands, and northeast of the Reach, and north of the stormlands.
Bastards in the crownlands are given the surname Waters. The Reach is the largest region except for the north; it encompasses a region of the most fertile part of Westeros and numerous well-populated villages and towns.
The Reach is ruled by House Tyrell from Highgarden. Bannermen of the Tyrells frequently fight with the Dornishmen of the south.
The most prominent city in the Reach is Oldtown. It is the oldest city in Westeros, home to the maesters ' Citadel , and the Starry Sept , the previous seat of the Faith.
Bastards in the Reach are given the surname Flowers. The stormlands, located south of King's Landing , stretch down to the Sea of Dorne and are bordered by Shipbreaker Bay in the east and the Reach in the west.
It is one of the smaller regions of Westeros, a land of harsh mountains, stony shores, and verdant forests. Before Aegon's Conquest they were ruled by the Storm Kings , and afterwards by the Baratheons ; their founder, Orys Baratheon , was rumored to be a bastard relative of the Targaryens.
The Dornish Marches are mostly located within the stormlands, having been ruled by the Storm Kings since time immemorial,  and are ruled by marcher lords.
The marches were common battlegrounds between the stormlands, the Reach, and Dorne until the last century, when Dorne joined the Seven Kingdoms.
Bastards in the stormlands are given the surname Storm. Dorne is the southernmost region of Westeros. It stretches from the southern Red Mountains near the Dornish Marches to the southern coast of the continent.
It is the hottest kingdom in Westeros and features the only desert on the continent. Dornishmen have a reputation for hot-bloodedness as well.
They differ both culturally and ethnically from other Westerosi due to the historical migration of the Rhoynar on ten thousand ships. Their food, appearance, and architecture resemble those of Mediterranean cultures such as Greece and Turkey more than the Western European feel of the other kingdoms.
They have adopted many Rhoynish customs as well, including equal primogeniture. Dorne was the only kingdom in Westeros to successfully resist Aegon's Conquest.
This accomplishment has allowed Dorne to retain a small measure of independence. The ruling Martells still style themselves " prince " and "princess" in the Rhoynish fashion rather than " lord ".
Bastards in Dorne are given the surname Sand. Westeros's climate shifts from arid and dry desert climate in the furthest south to cold and harsh winters in the north and icy wasteland in the Lands of Always Winter in the farthest north.
Westeros and Essos both experience extremely long seasons of varying length, usually lasting at least a couple of years each.
The maesters try to predict the length of the seasons, monitoring the temperature and days length, to advise on when to plant and when to harvest and how much food to store.
However, given the random nature of the seasons, this is not something that can be relied on. At the beginning of A Game of Thrones Westeros has enjoyed an unusually long decade-long summer of peace and plenty and many fear that an equally long and harsh winter will follow.
The end of the long summer comes at the outset of A Feast for Crows , with the arrival of the white ravens from the Citadel.
The official announcement of winter comes at the end of A Dance with Dragons. Days are longest in summer, shorter in other seasons,   and shorter in the far north.
Martin has stated that the explanation for the world's unusual seasons is not scientific in nature and would be revealed by the end of the series.
Some species of animals inhabiting the planet are very similar to Pleistocene megafauna of Earth or even historical animals. Other animals appear to be altered versions of contemporary animals or have no real-world equivalent.

Princess Gael Targaryen is born during winter, and named the Winter Child. Princess Gael Targaryen dies, supposedly of summer fever.
Laena and Laenor Velaryon died during this year. Unknown - AC. Winter began during the middle of the Dance of the Dragons , creating brutal conditions in the realm, which was already ravaged by the civil war.
The winter was cruel and long, lasting six years. During this season, the Great Spring Sickness spread across the realm.
It is followed by a short autumn and a terrible long winter. The winter started in AC. The exact start of the summer is unknown.
The exact date of the start of this autumn is unknown. So, well spotted op! Can we get more from this observation? Any conclusions or new info to draw from it?
The first thing i did was compare city's to the one's in Westeros, and sometimes locations do compare but usually not.
Climate and terrain is also diffferent, youll find mountainranges that you wouldn't find in England and ireland. Ireland doesn't exactly have mountain ranges which would compare to those of the Vale or on the borders with Dorne.
So the first impressions seems to be that GRRM needed a semi realistic contours to a landmass, and took inspiration from putting his atlas upside down and make some fusing, and that there might not be more to it.
I do want to mention though that GRRM takes a load of inspiration from the Brittisch isles in his books, probably not so surprizing, but otoh it's worth taking note of Brittisch legends and history.
The contours of the south versus a upside down ireland are rather striking, however it seems that particullary Dorne looks out of place in that picture.
So are the mountains of Dorne not really somethign for that area. But maybe this is giving a hint that Dorne only got stuck to the rest of the landmass at a later time.
That you have a mountainrange as border there might give additional suggestion of the addition of Dorne being the result of continental drift.
Or maybe Dorne is the result of continental drift, it does have the mountainrange there where it should have connected. GRRM once said the easiest thing you can do to create realistic fantasy maps is to take real maps and turn them upside down.
I think it was at some con panel about fantasy writing, trying to find it right now We can put something of a check on that regardless of the fact that it's more up north and in the wrong island, i agree that the simmilarity's are significant enough to warrent attention.
Thats 1 city though. Now you need to find a few other one's which can be connected, medieval english city's of note, and youll e convincing me that GRRM drew inspiration for his city's from Brittisch city's.
And then, if it is like that, that GRRM drew inspiration for the rough geaographical location or circumstances of a certain city from Brittisch city's, then we still need to determine the significance of it, was it only inspiration or is there more to it?
Eitherway, youre observations as they are are very good, regardless if it might not bring us any further as to getting answers for some of the mysteries of the series.
Eitherway, keep up the good work. I would say Dorne was expanded to allow the Stepstone's Arm, which is relevant for the plot and the invasion of the First Men.
I've always seen some resemblance to GB in the map of Westeros but that part about Ireland completely blew my mind.
However, I don't think the locations of the cities can be compared that easily because the topography and bodies of water etc.
I haven't taken a close look at that before but might be interesting to do that as well. Here , for instance. Now, mind you, for every place in the series you'll find vastly different opinions regarding real world analogies.
GRRM took examples from our world and gave them a new twist, a different spin.
