An awesome little infographic that compares the history of the GoT world, with ours.

Who isn’t a GoT fan? Even the haters I know, watch it. They watch every single episode, every season! Did you know that in 2012, about 160 babies in the US alone were named ‘Khaleesi’ - after Daenerys’ title. It’s also the first TV series to be screened in IMAX theaters.

Game of Thrones, it’s something that our herd cannot escape - Yes, the sex is that good! Throw cliffhangers, gory deaths, and coming-back-to-life scenarios into the mix and you’ve got a winner-winner-chicken-dinner on your hands. Minus the snafu of the books never being published on time, of course. GRRM did not write his ritualistic one-episode-per-season script for the fifth, and the sixth season, because he wanted to complete the sixth book of the series - ’The Winds Of Winter’. Hopefully it won’t longer than it took ‘A Dance With Dragons’ to be published; which was five years of wait, without a TV series to boot!

Obviously since we’re almost midway into the newest season, I thought of riding the bandwagon with everyone out there. But, as I can’t come up with any shareable, original content to publish here in this post, I am just going to share this awesome infographic I found while I was browsing on reddit.

Game Of Thrones VS. Actual Human History

A very interesting, and telling infographic this one. It’s by the awesome people over at It compares the history of the world of Game of Thrones, with the real-life history of our world. Oh, and just a heads up - the map of our world is not accurate, it’s just made so that it can look similar to the world of GoT.
