VOLANTIS OF ESSOS


Volantis was the first of the Free Cities founded by the Valyrian Freehold in western Essos. It lies on the southern coast of Essos, where the mighty Rhoyne River meets the Summer Sea. It was founded as a colony of Valyria many centuries ago and is a great port. People from Volantis are known as Volantene. Four centuries ago, Valyria was destroyed by a massive volcanic cataclysm known as the Doom, and the empire fractured. In the present day, Volantis remains one of the more powerful of the Free Cities, and has the largest population of any of them.

R'hllor Red Priest

Talisa was born in the Free City of Volantis. She decided that when she came of age, she would not waste her years dancing with other nobles, and that she would never live in a place where slavery was legal. To this end, she sought and obtained medical training and relocated to Westeros. On a battlefield between Robb Stark's army and the Lannisters, she met Robb. They soon fell in love and got married despite Robb's oath to wed one of Walder Frey's daughters, which resulted in tragedy for the newly wedded couple.

Kinvara is a Red Priestess, one of the high-ranking leaders in the faith of R'hllor, the Lord of Light. Her full title is "High Priestess of the Red Temple of Volantis, the Flame of Truth, the Light of Wisdom, and First Servant of the Lord of Light". Kinvara is sure that Daenerys is the one who was promised, using her freeing of the slaves and her dragons as examples of her claim; she is thus happy to assist Daenerys's associates however she can.

Belicho Paenymion is a prominent noble of Volantis, and a member of the "Old Blood", descendants of the original Valyrian settlers of the city. Like most of the Volantene nobility, Belicho is involved in the slave trade. He acts as a representative of the Triarchs of Volantis.

Zanrush is a Red Priest of R'hllor, based in the city of Meereen. Zanrush preaches his message to a crowd of Meereenese freedmen. The Red Priest wants the populace to follow Daenerys' example in her absence and free themselves from the tyranny of the masters.


Without central leadership, Valyria's surviving colonies were torn apart in a period of chaotic civil wars known as the Century of Blood. As the oldest and most populous of the Free Cities, Volantis attempted to conquer the other remaining colonies and rebuild the Freehold under its own rule. It failed when all of the other Free Cities united against Volantis. The only thing that could unite all of the other Free Cities was their determination not to be forcefully united under the rule of the Volantenes.

Long Bridge Prostitute

This unnamed woman was a slave of apparently eastern origin. According to the Volantene tattoo on her face, she was trained as a prostitute. It seems that she was eventually bought by the Red Temple in Volantis, or was freed by some other means and joined the Red Temple thereafter. She was eventually ordained as a Red Priestess based in Volantis.

This unnamed woman (played by Melanie Liburd) is a Red priestess based in Meereen. She is seen preaching on the streets of Meereen to a crowd of townspeople about Daenerys Targaryen. Her presence (and the fact that she pointedly mentions Daenerys's advisers) is likely the result of the agreement between Kinvara and Tyrion Lannister.
