Game of Thrones isn’t just one of the most well-known series on television — it’s one of the most revolutionary TV shows ever made. Since 2011, the epic fantasy about the battle for power in Westeros has completely captivated both fans of George R. R. Martin’s book series and newcomers. And the fervor for the series only seems to grow with each passing season. Some of us have been along for the entire ride. Others are just now catching up on the sixth season of Game of Thrones. But one common thread seems to run through all GOT fans an obsessive need to know every detail about the show. Part of it comes out of necessity how else can you keep all of the characters, feuds, and locations straight? But it’s also because the series is so addictive that you always find yourself wanting more.
We wait with bated breath for a new season and mourn the loss of the series after each finale even if our favorite characters have managed to survive intact. Here are some lesser-known facts about the show to tide you over until it returns.
