    For those going thru Game of Thrones withdrawal, there are tons of online resources that contain background information on the history of Westeros and other made up lands.

    The first four videos here are Youtube compilations of bonus features found on the first three season blu ray sets.

    "The Complete Guide to Westeros is a series of short videos that appear in the Game of Thrones Season Blu-ray sets. Actual cast members, in-character, narrate the major events of the 12,000 year long history of Westeros. The "Complete Guide" for each season has a combined running time of 60 minutes, thus each functionally constitutes a full-length "bonus episode" of sorts. The featurettes were written by series staff writer Bryan Cogman. The illustrations in the Complete Guide are created by the TV series' storyboard artist, William Simpson.

    The goal is that viewers new to the TV series that are not familiar with author George R.R. Martin's books are given within the space of an hour a thorough crash-course on all of the vital things one needs to know about the backstory of the world of Westeros.

    Similar to the theme of the books, each of the characters gives their own perspective on historical events. For example, Robert Baratheon is filled with self-righteous fury when he describes the Sack of King's Landing, while Viserys Targaryen stresses what a betrayal it was and how the Targaryen children were butchered. The House Stark characters are horrified by the bloodshed in the Sack of King's Landing, while Tywin Lannister considers it to have been a necessary evil.

    The Complete Guide to Westeros is broken into two groups of featurettes: "Houses" featurettes are in full-color limited animation and explain the specific history of main Great Houses of the Seven Kingdoms; meanwhile, "History and Lore" explain the nature of institutions, cultural aspects, and historical events of the Seven Kingdoms, and are presented in charcoal-style drawings."


    These youtube videos are NOT broken up into subgroups, but rather compiled into one long video.

    Next there are some video from Comicbookgirl19. She's pretty easy on the eyes :gig: and has some really good videos that dissect the show (think Wrap Up Show for Game of Thrones) as well as a series of "Epic History" videos that cover the main families of Westeros.

    EPIC HISTORY: House Stark
