Bran the Blessed Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

Go fish! Bran's often thought to be the inspiration for the Arthurian figure of the Fisher King. (Source)

Bran hopped on the Christian train early on. Some say he was the first ever Christian ruler in England. That's what gave him the nickname of "the Blessed." (Source)

Bran's so tall he waded across the Irish Sea rather than swimming. Remind us not to compete against him in the next triathlon. (Source)
