April 24th, 2016 was a big deal for me as a Game of Thrones fan. Not only was the show premiering its sixth season, but the Game of Thrones concept album SEVEN became available. Finally!

This post will be discussing various royal characters in the HBO show Game of Thrones. How spoilery could this post be? Probably very. If you are behind on your show watching, let me first call you a clown, and then request that you watch the show and come back.

Yes. Do go watch me win.

Game of Thrones takes place primarily in the Seven Kingdoms, where in the show’s early seasons┬ávarious kings contested for the Iron Throne (while other kings attempted to secede from the multi-kingdom hegemony.)

This post will be discussing some of the major plot points of HBO’s excellent series Game of Thrones, a solid adaptation of George RR Martin’s unfinished book series A Song of Ice and Fire.

It would also be fair to say uneasy rests the rear that sits on an iron throne, but this blog post is about fashion not furniture. It’s time to talk about crowns.

This article will be discussing characters and plot points from the first three seasons of HBO’s excellent series Game of Thrones. If you are caught up on the television show (or have read up through roughly 2/3rds of the way A Storm of Swords) then there won’t be any spoilers here.
