As a young and fledgeling series, Game of Thrones is still a bit lacking in related online material, although the amounts are growing pretty much every day. As of course material is still a bit thin on the ground, I decided to collect as many maps, charts and info graphics as are currently available into this post so as to make it easier for everybody to access them, especially those who have better things to do than spend half an hour researching Game of Thrones Inforgraphics, charts and maps. There aren’t any spoilers by the way, except for some potential spoilers in entry 4. I made them a bit small so you’ll have to open them up separately by clicking on the image – less risk that way.
Well, here you go:
1. Number one is a colourful world map of A Song of Ice and Fire. I had to include this since it pretty much covers the whole GoT World.
2. The second entry in the list is a set of maps of Westeros, the westernmost island in the World of A Song of Ice and Fire. This is where a good chuck of the action takes place, though by no means all of it. The author is the same as the one above, and the details and colourfulness of these maps work really well with their medieval/cartoonish style. They remind me a lot of illuminated manuscripts somehow.
3. Next up, families. After all, what’s the story without its characters? This chart shows the main characters filling up the world of Game of Thrones, including relationships and faces.
4. Another infographic showing the relationships between different characters. What this one loses in faces, it makes up for in detail. It comes in two versions as well : A basic illustration of the different houses in the games and a second infographic adding the different relationships between the characters on top of the basic family ties.
5. Another Map of Westeros and the Land across the Narrow sea. It’s not as lovely looking as the other maps in the post, but in simplicity lies its strength.
An Extra for those of you who speak Portuguese, a nice looking infographic on the history of Westeros, The Wall, a description of the Hand of the King and its/his functions, and the main Houses in GoT. Quite and interesting read.
