Just curious, has anyone done an in-depth thread about the some of the obvious correlations between real history and the some of the Characters, events, places, etc.. in GOT?  I don't mean the obvious similarities from Brit history, but others.   Just a few I've noticed:  r

​​1.  The Lannister use of "Greek Fire" during the siege. 

​2.  Bravos is said to have a Titan over the harbor, thus obviously it's meant to be equated to Rhodes in some way.

3.  The Dothraki are clearly based on the Mongol Golden Horde.

I can think of at least 50 more , but I assume there  is an exhaustive thread of page somewhere already.  Can anyone direct me to it?

No replies?  I suggest that you visit the "A Song of Ice and Fire" wikia pages.  Your question feels more book related than TV series related.  For my two cents worth, I think Westeros looks like Great Britain, and there once was an actual wall built across Britain to keep out northern invaders.
