    I would estimate that in the fjnal season dany had 100k tyrells 20 to 30 k dornishmen. 8000 unsullied some 70000 dithraki as well as greyjoy ships tbe masters ships and the redwyne fleet. So how did danys conquest go so shite

    With those numbers a United Westeros could field over 250,000 men. The Unsullied and Dothroki would have not been able to overcome that especially after it was found large Scorpians could defeat a dragon.

    Some say ned or robb caused the down fall of the starks, others blame the freys and boltons. Hell you might even put the blame on neds older brother who was trained to lead being killed by the mad king. But it truely was little finger who started the downfall of the north. He started everything because he convinced the starks that the lannisters wanted to kill brann, if it wasnt for littlefinger there would have been a good chance that robbs army could have doubled or even trippled in number due to the vale joining the war for the tullys and starks. Lets say that with the knights of the vale hed have about 45000 men in his army down in the riverlands, and lets say robb still executes karstark and doesnt marry the frey girl hed have something in the 35000 range of man most of whom would be expert cavalry. With his new army robb could probably have done a type of blitzkrieg and maybe have recaptured jamie and maybe even have dealt with tywin. All of this meant that there would have been no red wedding since he wouldnt need the freys. Robb could have won like that, he could have gone north and deal with the iron born and wildlings and protect his new realm (maybe the ruverlands and vale included) hed be in a strong enough position that the freys, boltons, lannisters and even baratheons couldnt touch him.

    Tl;dr: blame little finger for robbs death

    If you were Wondering, according to this video could before the start of the War of the Five Kings in the books Westeros gather up to 456 000 men. But I guess Bronn and 20 good men are enough.

    I think the largest empires would have been on Essos.

    I believe the North has the strongest army. When they march south in the aftermath of the Dance of the Dragons, all the other kingdoms refused to take up arms against them fearing the ferocity of the northern warriors. Then the Starks took control of King's Landing in what became known as the hour of the wolf when no one else would challenge them.

    Where were the Tully's 45,000 men during the war? I know their forces joined Robbs but it seems like they were greatly depleted by then. They're forces are never said to be significant in the books, maybe they stay to garrison their castles against The Mountains raids.

    How do they judge time (days, seasons) if the length of sunshine doesn't show the time of year they're at?
