George R.R. Martin’s series, A Song of Ice and Fire and the HBO show Game of Thrones is filled with tons of references and callbacks to real-life historical events. From the houses Lannister and Stark, some seminal events of the book and show, to actual physical geography of the world, discover all the connections George R.R. Martin packed into his series from the real-life history of Britain and Europe. This presentation will be a look at the Game of Thrones saga from a historical perspective and show that sometimes real history is even crazier than fiction.
