Meereenese Valyrian is a language created by David Peterson for the HBO series Game of Thrones. The language is derived from the High Valyrian language, which was based on material from George R. R. Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The language is an a posteriori language in the truest sense, being a daughter language of High Valyrian, with some grammatical and lexical elements held over from the yet to be created Ghiscari language. Meereenese Valyrian is intended to be the language used in Meereen, a city in Slaver's Bay, an area that had previously been conquered by the Valyrian Freehold in A Song of Ice and Fire. Meereenese is one dialect of the Slaver's Bay variety, the other two being Yunkish and Astapori. For more information about the language, use the links provided below:
