Which structures do you think Bran the Builder really designed/built? Or are all extraordinary structures simply added to his list as an explanation for their existence? I see shades of Arthur’s stories, the conquering of Dacia especially, where Arthur seems to conquer every land people have heard of. Storm’s End seems to fit as an apparent “Dacian-like” embellishment but it’s size and magical properties say otherwise. Thanks!

In a normal setting, I think you’d be right. But in ASOIAF, “when the fact becomes legend, print the legend.”
