      This is HBO getting its moneys worth. Probably sold these for 100 quid a pop as a special feature on a dvd boxset.
      I do wonder what percentage of this goes back to them as royalties? I mean if your an actor for a show you expect to do promotion material does this count?
      So maybe they don't get diddly squat for the effort. These are great but I doubt there is any incentive now for anyone to make more.
      Maybe House of the Dragon guys get a go now they are tied up in contracts for it. But do they even make DVDs anymore?
      Remember when a DVD was like a fucking game? The menus were one big Easter egg for the film and fun to navigate. Remember physical media.
      Head cleaners? Remember needing them? My 5 year old found an old VHS tape of mine the other day and lost his fucking mind at the concept.

      @ubed nizamani I disagree. They were high profile and kind of exciting, but if Starks had somehow begun sitting the Iron Throne, there wouldn’t have been the nonsense that went of with Baratheons. Sense and stability would reign.

      Why wouldn't they do it? I mean as an actor, why wouldn't you want to be part of a world famous show like Game of Thrones? Most actors will go their entire careers without ever even auditioning for a part as tremendous as a part in this show. It can open the door for all sorts of other things too. You'd be a fool not to play your part as well as they required.

    Seems like the show completely removed Robert’s Targaryen blood. In the books, Robert’s grandmother was Rhaelle Targaryen, youngest daughter of King Aegon V the Unlikely. Rhaelle was Daenerys’ aunt, making her and Robert second-cousins. The Baratheons intermarried with the Targaryens on two other occasions as well.
    1. Lord Rogar Baratheon, grandson of Orys One-hand (Aegon the conqueror’s bastard brother), married his cousin Aenys’ widow Alyssa Velaryon. Alyssa had Targaryen blood.
    2. Rogar and Alyssa’s daughter Jocelyn Baratheon married prince Aemon, eldest son and heir to king Jaehaerys I the wise and good queen Alysanne. They had one daughter, Rhaenys.

      @Develyn Seether it doesn't matter, that was why it was called the 7 kingdoms, for the same reason no one counts the Crownlands as one of the kingdoms and why dorne is counted amongst the kingdoms despite only bending the knee a century after the conquest

      To be fair, the only impregnable fortress that was conquered by force was Harrenhall, and quite honestly the only thing ever built by men that might have survived Balerion's fire is the Wall. Every one of the conquered houses in Westeros that claimed to have an impregnable fortress either lost in the field where their walls meant nothing, or capitulated to spare the lives of their people. Only the most arrogant lords would gamble their lives and their family's future to put their walls to the test.

      @Jennifer Brewer To be fair, that's a line that only exists in the show. As it's described in the books you could throw a thousand Bronns against the Eyrie and less than a hundred defenders could hold it indefinitely. Short of dragon fire or an army of the dead, the Eyrie would hold.

    2:30 = It's a shame that Viserys didn't survive the very first season as I would've loved to have witness his reaction to finding out that there is in fact a 3rd person in Westeros who not only has Targaryen blood in him but is also in fact the actual rightful ruler of The 7 Kingdoms instead of him (Viserys)

      @Chaimae ⵣ Rhealla crowned viserys because she assumed that all rheagars children were dead, no one gives a shit about what the mad king did, it's why Robert fears his children because their claim is stronger than his, the only thing Robert achieved with his rebellion is that anyone with a large enough army can claim the iron throne...no right to rule just conquest

    • Nicholas
      Nicholas 3 years ago +3

      @Chaimae ⵣ we don't know if Jon is a bastard or not, there is no evidence to prove he is or isn't, when rheagar died his legitimate sons come before his siblings, it's part of the reason why Dany is fucked if people will actually believe Young Griff is Aegon.

    • Chaimae ⵣ
      Chaimae ⵣ 3 years ago

      @Nicholas so as viserys lol Rhaegar died before Aerys so literally the throne went to viserys .
      Plus there's no way that jon is a legitimate child they made it in the show bcz they cut off young griff the real Aegon

    • Chaimae ⵣ
      Chaimae ⵣ 3 years ago +9

      First of all
      This is just the show version they make jon the rightful heir because they had cut off an important character called young griff the real Aegon Targaryen .
      Secondly viserys had the better than any of Rhaegar's children simply because when Rhaegar died the mad king desinherited Rhaegar's children and named viserys his heir . He even had been crowned by his mother Rhaella in dragonstone .
      Finaly Robert Baratheon dethroned the targaryens so in that point the rightful heir by all means is stannis Baratheon

    I love how nearly all the noble houses are related to eachother by some close or distant relative or ancestor. Obviously the reasons are because of political alliances (through produced heirs), but every major house in Westoros has literally f**ked eachother at some point throughout the last 300 years following Aegon's conquest, with the Targaryen's and Martell's being the most politically promiscuous.
    Take Jon Snow for example. Although he's half Targaryen and half Stark, his great grandfather (Jaehaerys II) was half Blackwood, his great, great grandfather (Aegon V) was half Dayne and his great, great, great grandfather was half Martell (Maekar I), and his ancestor Rhaenyra's Targaryen was half Arryn. And that's merely the lineage of a single main character from a noble house lol

      Emily Ingram Despite how much I love Oberyn and the history of Dorne, I don't want them to seek out their petty vengeance. They kill the innocent Lannister girl as well as their prince and king, who had seen the devastation that war can cause and tried to keep his country safe.
      However, (based on the show, I haven't read the books), apparently he didn't really heed the will of the Dornish, who desired vengeance against the Lannisters.
      Interesting this reminds me of how the anime Fate/Zero explored a king who saved/serves the people vs a king who leads/gets served by his people.

      Technically House Tyrell isn't extinct in the show either. Olenna and Margery commented on all of the cousins they have. Even if they're not from the mainline, there are probably other Tyrells wandering the Reach. Also, considering how everything in Dorne works, I wouldn't be surprised if the Sand Snakes were A. naturalized to become Martells B. allowed to give their male heirs the last name Martell, thus continuing the line. (Hoping they don't all die soon)

    So Little Finger was in RiverRun & left after he healed. Brandon had left to join his family. Lyanna and Rhaegar left the river lands and I believe ran into LittleFinger who then knew Brandon would react. He waited until he got to the fingers to write a letter to Cat who then tore it up without reading it. This is why he said it was built on a lie and why gave that look to Sansa in the crypts when she said Rhaegar raped her aunt. Lyanna prob thought he was joining the wedding party. I think Lysas son is his- a weak, meak boy

    House Velaryon? The most underated house in history? They legit were the MOST influential house after Targaryen untill their fall (Targaryens at some major wars were reliant on Velaryon military power, wealthiest house in Westeros). Also had the rare valyrian looks. And to top all of that, Lord Corlys Velaryon was the greater version of Tywin Lannister (aged death, unkillable, saved Targaryen dynasty in Blacks and Greens war, rode a dragon, his father started the King's guard). This house topped every house except for Targaryen and you're telling me they're not worthy any credit or special mentions in any of the official video content?? Starks - honorable dudes, Lannisters - sneaky rich pricks, Arryns - fancy knights, Tully - budget knights and Martells were pretty badass so I won't mock them

They kept mentioning how this Winter will be a long one, how no one truly remembers because it's been such a long summer. They have a phrase for those who haven't seen a winter. Don't play dumb and just ignore all the foreshadowing. That actually comes true. The payoff was just shit.
