Latest Game of Thrones Histories and Lore video talks about the conflict between the Children of the Forest & the First Men

The world of Game of Thrones is an extremely intricate one and it is filled with so many stories that most of the people barely have any idea about them. Prominent among such stories are the ones that happened before the time period from where the story in books or the TV series begins. Luckily, Game of Thrones has made sure that the fans get to know as much about the past as possible with their Histories and Lores videos.

Every Game of Thrones Blu-Ray set comes with a History and Lore section and one of the video from season 6 talks about the war between the Children of the forest and the First men. Take a look the video that has just been released.

The greatest part of the video is that it has been narrated by the Three-Eyed Raven (Max von Sydow).

What is even more fascinating is that this box-set comes with a lot other short videos, giving a background allegory.

These include :

  • The Old Way: narrated by Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)
  • The Kingsmoot: narrated by Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)
  • The Sunset Sea: narrated by Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)
  • War of the Ninepenny Kings: narrated by Brother Ray (Ian McShane)
  • The Great Tourney at Harrenhal: narrated by Meera Reed (Ellie Kendrick)

  • Vaes Dothrak: narrated by Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen)

  • Northern Allegiances to House Stark: narrated by Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)
  • Brotherhood Without Banners: narrated by Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye)
  • Oldtown: narrated by Grand Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover) and Qyburn (Anton Lesser)
  • House Dayne: narrated by Young Ned Stark (Robert Aramayo)
  • The Little Birds: narrated by Lord Varys (Conleth Hill)
  • Knights of the Vale: narrated by Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish (Aidan Gillen)
  • House Tarly: narrated by Randyll Tarly (James Faulkner)

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

George R. R. Martin is one of the most famous fantasy writers of present times. If not for him, we wouldn’t be having the amazing world of Game of Thrones, HBO’s fantasy epic based on his A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Though much of his fanbase has grown weary of him, for making them wait for the next book in the series ‘Winds of Winter’, he is still a coveted literary figure, and no one can deny his importance in the entertainment industry.

Martin turned 73 on Monday, September 20, 2021, and birthday wishes have been pouring in for the veteran writer. He shared a nice poem about getting old on his blog Not a Blog:

George R. R. Martin shares a poem with fans on his 73rd birthday

I grow old… I grow old…

I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?

I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

((with thanks to T.S. Eliot))”

It is true that Martin is getting old, and many fans are worried if he’ll ever get to finish his novels. However, it is also true that he has been promising fans he will deliver the much-awaited books, while he is still working on other projects. We can only hope he is true to his word.

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

When you watch Game of Thrones, you always swear allegiance to a particular House or two, be it Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, or Greyjoy. But when it comes to ice creams, it becomes a really tough choice. And one particular shop in Cornwall is not making it easy for Game of Thrones fans at all. A Game of Thrones ice cream shop, Game of Cones, located in Fowey, Cornwall, UK, is making your dreams come true, in the form of your favourite sweet and icy dessert.

Have a look at a Game of Cones for Ice cream lovers!

The dessert shop in Cornwall sells your favourite ice creams and milkshakes with a Game of Thrones twist. Over 33 flavours are available on their menu for you to choose from, each sharing name with a character on HBO’s epic fantasy. There’s also a House of Dragons cabinet for people to sit and enjoy their delicacy. It sounds awfully similar to the name of HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel!

We know that Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is being filmed at various locations in Cornwall, as many pictures have been leaked online with the cast in costume. Game of Cones will surely make a huge profit if the prequel lifts off.
