Regarding the Kingsguard

House of the Dragon, HBO’s next series set in George RR Martin’s Seven Kingdoms (more or less Seven) is now airing, and I’ve been fortunate enough to resume my role as occasional contributor to the Game of Thrones-centric fansite Watchers on the Wall.

The second episode featured the crown’s heir-designate Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, tasked to choose a replacement Kingsguard, to fill in an absence. I felt that this was a good opportunity to talk about the institution of the Kingsguard. Look, this might sound dull, but I’m a funny writer. My dad will back me up.

I don’t want to spoil any details about the article here, just click on the link and check out the article on the Watchers site. If you like it, feel free to leave a comment.

White Cloaks, Black Cloaks, and Politics

If you don’t like the article, I don’t mind you commenting about that either. (But comment about it here on my blog, where no one will see it and it’ll be less traumatic for me.)


(Comments are always welcome. Super welcome! But if you want to talk spoilery Game of Thrones talk with me (also welcome) I’d invite you to visit my Safe Spoilers page on my backup blog. That way my non-book-reading friends won’t be shocked with foreknowledge.)
