The narrow sea is the sea between the continent of Westeros to its west and the continent of Essos to its east. The sea is relatively narrow and easy to cross, but large enough to make large-scale invasions and military incursions between the Siedem Królestw and the Wolne Miasta difficult. There is regular trade across the narrow sea between the two continents.
The narrow sea can be rough in autumn, when storms are common. In winter, the storms are worse but less frequent. The Krainy Burzy are especially hit hard by storms which develop in the warmer waters of the Summer Sea to the south. It is suggested that a journey from the Shield Islands to the far side of the narrow sea is so hazardous in autumn that two-thirds of a fleet might be lost in the attempt. Trading galleys are sometimes better off crossing in the safety of the Stopnie.
The narrow sea connects the Shivering Sea in the north, the Sea of Dorne in the west, the Sea of Myrth in the east, and the Summer Sea in the south, which it is separated from by the island chain known as the Stopnie.
The narrow sea begins along the eastern coast of northern Westeros. The nearby Shivering Sea is generally held to begin north of the Mur, but it is also described as reaching Skagos in the Bay of Seals and the Grey Cliffs. Settlements near the two seas along the eastern coast of the Północ include Wschodnia Strażnica, Widow's Watch, and Ramsgate.
Located in or near the Bite are the Three Sisters, Biały Port, and Oldcastle. Settlements of the Vale of Arryn along the sea include Old Anchor, Runestone, and Gulltown. Across the Bay of Crabs to the south is Crackclaw Point with the Whispers in the Włości Korony.
The Gullet separates the narrow sea from Blackwater Bay, upon which are located Królewska Przystań and Duskendale. Lords of the narrow sea sworn to Smocza Skała include House Celtigar of Claw Isle, Ród Velaryonów of Driftmark, House Sunglass of Sweetport Sound, and House Bar Emmon of Sharp Point. Further south is Massey's Hook with Stonedance.
The isle of Tarth and the Straits of Tarth separate the narrow sea from Zatoka Rozbitków. Located on Tarth is Evenfall Hall. South of Tarth on Cape Wrath in the Krainy Burzy are Rain House near the Deszczowy Las and the Weeping Town, and nearby is Greenstone on the isle of Estermont.
The Pierwsi Ludzie of antiquity crossed the Arm of Dorne from Essos to Westeros. According to legend, however, the hammer of the waters shattered the land bridge and created the Stopnie between the narrow sea and the Summer Sea. During the Inwazja Andalów, Andalowie sailed in longships across the narrow sea from Andalos to the east coast of Westeros. When Andals attacked the Północ, King Theon Stark retaliated by raiding the coast of Andalos. The Wolf's Den was built to protect the White Knife from raiders from the east.
After conquering the Old Empire of Ghis, the Valyriańskie Włości expanded west and established several colonies, which are now called the Wolne Miasta. These included Pentos and Myr along the narrow sea and Tyrosh, which was founded to control trade in the Stepstones. Refugees from Valyrian slavery founded Braavos where the narrow sea meets the Shivering Sea.
Overcoming the resistance of the local lords of the narrow sea, Smocza Skała was raised as the westernmost outpost of the Valyrian Freehold. The Targaryens controlled the skies above the narrow sea with their dragons, while the fleets of their Valyrian allies, the Velaryons and Celtigars, controlled the middle region of the sea.
Prince Daemon Targaryen claimed to be King of the Stepstones and the Narrow Sea, but he was opposed by the Kingdom of the Three Daughters. King Viserys II Targaryen encouraged greater trade across the narrow sea during his brief reign. Exiled in Essos, the Blackfyre Pretenders plotted to cross the narrow sea and claim the Żelazny Tron.
In the aftermath of Rebelia Roberta, the fleet of House Targaryen at Dragonstone was destroyed by a fierce storm. Viserys and Daenerys Targaryen were smuggled across the narrow sea by Ser Willem Darry before the assault on Dragonstone. Daenerys spent much of her childhood fleeing across the sea from one city to the next.

|“||Robert: This Khal Drogo is said to have a hundred thousand men in his horde. What would Jon say to that?
Eddard: He would say that even a million Dothrakowie are no threat to the realm, so long as they remain on the other side of the narrow sea. The barbarians have no ships. They hate and fear the open sea.
|“||Autumn in the narrow sea could often be wet and rainy, he remembered from years past.||”|

|“||Words are wind, and the wind that blows exiles across the narrow sea seldom blows them back.||”|
