History Behind Game of Thrones


TME calls a small council meeting, with medieval expert Prof. Kelly DeVries & Jamie Adair of, about the true historical events that inspired George RR Martin's storylines and characters. We also explore if fantastical elements like dragons and wildfyre are possible, or just folk lore. Who were the real life inspirations for the Lannisters, Starks, and Targaryens? Which event was the true Purple Weddings? Did Dragons really exist?
