Game of Thrones' Background Summary

Game of Thrones series unveils in seasons lasting a few years each, where a battle of kings ensues for the Iron Throne. The events continue across time and the land called the Seven Kingdoms, where Westeros reside.

The Seven Kingdoms were united by Aegon Targaryen, who then ruled from the Iron Throne for three hundred years with the help of his dragons until the civil war erupted following the kidnapping of Lyana Stark, the daughter of the King of the North of The House of Starks. The Starks ruled the northermen, sometimes referred as wolves living between the Wall and the Neck for thousands of years.

Robert Baratheon, who along with Eddard 'Ned' Stark led the uprising, defeated the Targaryens, ceasing the rule of the Kingdom, and married Cersei Lannister. Other houses also aspire to rule that sometimes simply means to survive.

The most mysterious and dangerous area in the Seven Kingdom is north of the Wall made of ice that separates the land of the Wildlings and creatures called the White Walkers from the rest of the Seven Kingdoms. The Wall has The Night's Watch, guarding against the unbeatable and cruel White Walkers.

Will, a scout from the Night's Watch witnessed some murdered bodies arranged in a ritualistic manner, realizing the supernatural power behind the killing. When he deserts, the warden of the North, Eddard punishes him by killing him. It is hard to survive in the North and betrayals are met with death.

Eddard Stark, the ruler of the North has four sons, Bran, Robb, Rickon, an illegitimate son, Jon and two daughters, Arya and Sansa. When his son, Bran witnesses Cersei and her brother Jaime having sex while being guests at Winterfell, it is the beginning of the fall of the House of Starks.

Although Game of Thrones is fantasy, there is symbolism involved in various events such as religious powers. Also, the kingdoms joined together can be compared to the joining of continents that, according to science, is to happen with our continents in a distant future.

Game of Thrones events occur during eight seasons, mostly when winter is coming. When it eventually arrives, it spells the beginning of the end.

Game of Thrones Season 7 release date is when it premiers on HBO on 16 July 2017 .

      @Vantis: I know I avoid series as well but this is something different - I accidentally picked it up and it is interesting, but can be both addictive and involving.

      I'm just planning to read the books. If I like them, I will watch the series too. Great lens you have here, but I just don't like series. They take too much time... Maybe this one worth it, who knows?
