Ready to enter Westeros? Here’s a dummy's guide to the Game of Thrones universe

Haven’t watched Game of Thrones yet? Don’t emerge from under that rock until you have. All three seasons, while you’re at it. 

The fourth season premiere raked in 6.6 million viewers on Sunday night – the highest for HBO since the finale of The Sopranos in 2007 (11.9 million viewers). And HBO has just greenlit seasons 5 and 6 too. 

If the phrases “Red Wedding”, “Winter is coming” and “White Walkers” don’t make sense, you’ve been missing out on some serious medieval action.    

Before you go down the FOMO spiral, read our (rather unhelpful) beginner’s guide to GoT above. And for more of the same, watch this (unofficial) trailer. And take heart, you have a few days to catch up. 


Game of Thrones season 4 premieres on April 13 on HBO Defined.
