Belicho was one of the ruling triarchs of the Free City of Volantis.


Belicho was a renowned Volantene patriot whose famous exploits are recorded in the series The Life of the Triarch Belicho. His unbroken succession of conquests and triumphs ended rather abruptly when he was eaten by giants.[1]

Behind the Scenes

Belicho is named after Bill Belichick, a head coach of the New England Patriots football team.[2] George R. R. Martin has referred to Belichick as Evil Little Bill.[3] The Patriots went undefeated in the 2007 regular season, but lost to the New York Giants, Martin's favorite team, in Super Bowl XLII.
