HBO’s Game of Thrones is without a doubt, the most popular show on television. In fact, it’s one of the most popular shows in television history. It’s full of layered characters with complex backstories, intricate narratives and speculator action that is willing to kill off anyone it sees fit. Oh – and there’s also massive dragons. It’s a land full of magic and wonder; despite the grounded approach to politics and character interactions, but it’s those latter points that draw from the real world. Game of Thrones, and the book series A Song of Ice and Fire may be fictional, but they draw heavy inspiration from some real-world events.

So naturally, they want to continue to explore the history of Westeros and all it’s complicated families.
