The 21st century has witnessed an unprecedented rise in science and technology. These advances have helped bring fantasy to life. The last decade saw the bar for quality TV shows getting raised to never-before-seen heights. Game of Thrones played a major role in raising that bar even higher. Scientists have researched the show’s incredible success, relating it to real life. Once again the series proved that it still rules the heart of the audience. Game of Thrones was voted as the Greatest TV Show of the 21st century by Digital Spy readers. Not long ago, Century Link compiled a list of the 25 most iconic Game of Thrones characters. They then looked at the Google Trends search volume for each over the past five years, breaking it down by states in the US.

The result was a reasonably authoritative and very entertaining graphic cataloguing which states search most for which character. In other words, which Game of Thrones character is beloved in each state.

Quite surprisingly, Joffrey Baratheon is the most searched character in four different states. Although it may not be quite as surprising as finding out that only Massachusetts likes Jon Snow. Daenerys is the favourite in 17 states, including big ones like Texas, California and New York. All hail the Dragon Queen!

Also interesting that major characters like Cersei and Jaime Lannister are nowhere to be found on this list, and that Khal Drogo still comes in second to Daenerys despite only being on the show for one season. Littlefinger appeared in most search results in Hawaii, Indiana, New Jersey and West Virginia.

Game of Thrones’ Hafthor Björnsson (The Mountain) and Eddie Hall have been long time rivals now, ever since they faced each other in the World’s Strongest Man championship. Their upcoming fight has been dubbed ‘The Heaviest Boxing Match in History’. Every competitive sportsman is involved in taunting their opponent to generate hype for their big event. And the Mountain is full of them for his rival, Hall.

Bjornsson continued his course into the boxing world with a tussle against Commonwealth Games Champ Simon Vallily in Dubai. Bjornsson and Vallily were said to have been “extremely respectful” of each other after trying to knock each other into oblivion. Although the same cannot be said of the rookie’s attitude towards Hall.

He said, “Eddie Hall, you better be training because I’m coming for you and I’m knocking you out,” promised blustering Bjornsson. “I respect you as an athlete but I’m going to knock you out. See you soon.”

“Simon was a good opponent for me and it was good to test my chin, as well as my ability to fight in the ring with a professional. He gave me some good shots that landed well, so thanks to him for coming here for this exhibition.”

Turner didn’t provide a further explanation concerning the speculation about her sexuality. Last year, Kit Harington also talked about his gender-fluid upbringing.

Game of Thrones is a show that is intense at times, and it has its set of emotionally harrowing scenes throughout the show. The show has broken our hearts multiple times over the years, but one scene still remains at the top of this list: the Red Wedding. On 2nd June eight years ago, the world was left shocked and devastated by the Red Wedding, which took place in season three of Game of Thrones.

For those who need a recap, the Red Wedding is a massacre at the wedding feast of Edmure Tully, Lord of Riverrun, and Roslin Frey during the War of the Five Kings.

Taking place in the penultimate episode of season three, titled The Rains of Castamere, fans were presented with one of the most jaw-dropping 10 minutes of television they had ever seen.

What led to the happenings of this episode was Robb Stark meeting and falling in love with Talisa in season two. This was a major issue, as he was promised to a daughter of the cruel Walder Frey, which was an alliance that would give him a tactical advantage in the War of the Five Kings.

However, Robb broke this promise and married Talisa instead. To supposedly keep the Stark/Frey alliance going, the Starks conceded to Walder Frey’s fresh demands that Lord Edmure Tully, brother to Catelyn Stark and uncle to Robb, marry his daughter Roslin Frey instead. All of this all came to a head in the penultimate episode, where we saw the wedding between Edmure and Roslin.

After the wedding, when Edmure and Roslin had left the party to consummate their marriage, Roose Bolton and his men positioned themselves tactfully around the room in which the wedding feast was still ongoing.

Even though Walder swore a sacred oath that Robb, Catelyn and the then-pregnant Talisa would all be safe under his roof for the wedding, he, along with Roose and with the backing of Tywin Lannister, betrayed the Starks, and Bolton and his men killed all three.

Roose said the now-famous phrase ‘the Lannisters send their regards’ to Robb right before he stabbed him in the heart. Not only were the three Starks murdered, but most of Robb’s men who were either attending the wedding or celebrating outside the castle were brutally killed as well.
