    asoiaf - a simple question to which i cannot find an answer

    i've only read the first three books, so no spoilers, please.

    how many named characters are in "a song of ice and fire" so far (after five books)?

    i don't need to know the exact number. in fact, an answer like "about 400" or "over a thousand" is sufficient.

    The writers of the World of Ice and Fire book had to count them. Between the five novels and first three prequel novellas, I believe the count was between 1,200 and 1,300.

    Obviously that's everyone who gets a name, even if they just appear for two seconds and then get decapitated

    Wheel of Time is even bigger. It had well over 1,700 characters by Book 11 and should top 2,000 by the end of Book 14.
