    I think he drank more aggressively on the wedding night than other nights. But he still drinks a lot

    You did well, for the information you had. However, if you had knowledge from the books, your video would be different. In them, the nobles do not drink the strongest wines all the time, or even normally. In fact, they refer to what they drink normally as wine and what only a few characters ever touch (rarely) as "strongwine", one word like that. There is no mention of distilled spirits at any point, so it seems likely that "strongwine" is the 22% stuff you refer to. What the Lannisters are drinking is probably closer to what we drink today, somewhere between 8 and 13%. With what was said about the wine Robert Baratheon was given being triple normal strength, it would seem to be closer to 8%, or perhaps as low as 7%.
    In fact, it is revealed in the book that the Lannister cousin who supplied Robert with wine on the hunt (I can't recall his name) slowly mixed ordinary wine with this "strongwine", mixing more and more as Robert became drunker and drunker.
    I'd go with the aggressive estimate on drinks at the wedding, with my lower estimate for ABV, leaving Tyrion between .27 and .50, likely closer to the lower end based on the comment on the strength of Robert's drinks the day he died.

    One Small Question...
    (Comments-Section, please don’t go crazy on me for critiquing)
    According to the previous video about game of thrones, aren’t all proportions of things in their world 2x as big, so wouldn’t this be believable but not ludicrous?
    Just wondering, I’m honestly curious...

      If he's 8 the volume (which is what happens if you double the lengths) the the goblet he's drinking is also 8x the volume, so it cancels out.

    They had to drink wine and beer back then because water was filled with disease and bacteria.

    If everyone in the game of thrones universe is taller as you said in an other game of thrones theory Tyrion's chance of surviving the wine is much bigger.

    • Joe Thomas
      Joe Thomas 4 days ago

      The amount of wine he's drinking would also be significantly bigger, so it cancels out.

    It's gotta be taken into consideration that podrick, a man 3 times the drawf's size, cannot keep up with his intake.

    you overlooked the fact that the liver removes 0.5 ml to 0.75 ml per hour. According to your heavy use of 3000 ml in a day that would be about 52.8 ml of pure alcohol per 8 oz (240 ml). Actually that sounds like a lethal level and even more so for a woman considering fat is not water soluble.

    This would all be resolved if your theory about everything in Westeros being physically much larger than stuff in our world is correct, making this theory airtight. Nice job Matpat👏👍😊
