Who’s Who – Game of Thrones Graphic
During the most recent Game of Thrones Episode, Ned is seen flipping through a book that contains the chronology of all of the houses in Westeros. During this scene, NNAR’s Chris rightly commented, ‘Sweet book – also known as the appendix.’ For those of us who have read the books, we know that the complexity and density of the story line is largely due to the sheer number of characters and the relationships that they have with each other, all of which is laboriously outlined in the ever-growing appendices of each book.
I have recently found myself explaining to viewers (who have not read the books) who is who, what house they are from, who they are betrothed to, and how everyone fits together. I stumbled upon this excellent diagram, which takes the ream of appendix pages and puts it all together in an easy to follow and organized graphic. It goes no further than the most recent HBO episode, so no worries about any spoilers. Click on the image to expand.
