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.
