Thanks to a comment by Elio and Linda of Westeros.org we have now found a news story published by the Edinburgh News through which he reveals to us that George R. R. Martin goes to train as a specific information of the fortress of Edinburgh. And is that your voice can be current within the new audio-guides of the monument.
According to the scotsman, George says the next on this audio:
The scottish historical past is surprisingly bloody, darkish and twisted, full of betrayals and battles, in order that has been a fantastic supply of inspiration.
The Wedding Red, which is maybe essentially the most well-known scene of my books, is impressed largely by two occasions from scottish historical past: the Dinner Black right here in Edinburgh, the place the duke of Douglas and his brother had been massacred at a dinner by order of the King, and the bloodbath of Glencoe, through which the Campbell’s murdered the MacDonalds.
I mixed them each and put them in a marriage and so he got here to the Wedding Red.
