George R.R Martin at Edinburgh’s International Book Festival
August 20, 2014 By Jon Somers
Theories about the Game of Thrones ending are nearly as popular as the series itself, with fans of all ages debating what will happen at the climax of the international sensation. George R.R Martin revealed in an interview with Sky that on reading some fan theories in the earlier years of Game of Thrones – a select few had actually managed to guess the ending to his creation. Thankfully he didn’t reveal which theory it was, saying he no longer reads those kinds of forums and posts. So let the speculation wars continue.
Martin also talked about the inspiration behind some of his locations. Speaking about the wall and the idea behind the North and South divide Martin said: “Standing in Hadrian’s Wall on a cold day – not quite cold and grey as this day – I stared off into Scotland and tried to imagine what it was like to be a Roman legionary. It was a profound feeling.”
Seasons 1-4 and the original books that act as their source certainly manage to capture this isolated feeling of standing on the wall looking into the unknown. As season 5 approaches it will be interesting to see what other real-life inspirations from history appear to captivate us.
What other historical nods do you see in Game of Thrones? Let us know in the comments.
And for all those who know their theories L + R = J (you know what this means….)
