A Song of Ice and Fire

The Entire History of A Song of Ice and Fire Explained in 9 Maps

BY THE VARIOUS GODS! Reddit user HotbrownDoubleDouble has created a series of maps based on the known history of the world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire which tracks the movement of the various groups and Houses in the series, from the millennia-old Children of the Forest and the First Men all the way to present day.

The whole thing is pretty bad-ass and is totally spoiler-free, so anyone curious about the series or the Game of Thrones TV show can dive in and wonder at the various back and forths of the families and beings that come in to play throughout the story.

It also provides a wonderful illustration of the cyclical nature of the characters and societies within the series, where vengeance seemingly piles on top of vengeance and peace never truly arrives. What is Daenerys’ claim to power against the Others, or the Children of the Forest? What is anyone’s claim to power, really? It’s a question that stands at the heart of the books and show, and it’s fascinating to see how that question has been answered continually throughout the history of Westeros and the Lands Beyond.

You can see the entire progression of maps here.

You can also combine this map geek-out with this geographical geek-out for some ultimate Game of Thrones geeking out.
