AGoT Eddard 1: class

“I swear, women lose all modesty in the heat … they go around in these short gowns, silk if they have the silver and cotton if not…”

Interesting that Martin notes details about the relative prices of women’s clothing (though a bit implausible that Robert would do so).

Another commentary on social class from this chapter:

“Rhaegar lay dead in the stream, while men of both armies scrabbled in the swirling waters for rubies knocked free of his armor.”
