Gods Eye is a large lake located between the borders of the Riverlands, who hold the northern and western shores, and the Crownlands, who hold the southern and eastern shores. A tributary of the Blackwater Rush runs out of the lake down to the sea.


Small holdfasts and villages dot the shores of the lake, and fishing takes place there. At the centre of the lake is the Isle of Faces, the alleged stronghold of the greenseers. Outsiders tend to steer clear of the island due to its reputation as a place of fell magic.

The mightiest stronghold on the lake is Harrenhal, which is located on the north shore.
