Think you know the Seven Kingdoms?
“Game of Thrones” is the story of nine noble families fight over the mythical seven kingdoms of Westeros while an ancient enemy returns after being gone for thousands of years. The show is based off the critically-acclaimed book series called “A Song of Fire and Ice” by American novelist, George R.R. Martin. HBO’s hit series has had several seasons and will be concluding with the eighth season this April. Since the first season premiered back in 2011, the show has earned numerous awards and recognition for its groundbreaking set and, of course, brilliant performances. Peter Dinklage has won a Golden Globe for his performance as the intelligent and witty dwarf, Tyrion Lannister, who has managed to escape death more than once or twice through out the show. Lena Headey who plays the cut-throat Cersei Lannister has earned Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal of the vengeful queen who now sits on the Iron Throne. Head writers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have received so much praise for their work that they are signed up to write the prequel show which will explore the times of The Mad King’s reign leading up to Robert Baratheon’s rebellion. "Oh, my sweet summer child. What do you know about fear? Fear is for the winter, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides for years and children are born and live and die all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little Lord, when the white walkers move through the woods. Thousands of years ago there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts. And women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and wept and felt the tears freeze on their cheeks. So is this the sort of story that you like?"
