A Map of Ice and Fire
Like all great and epic fiction, Game of Thrones is downright confusing.
Fantasy masterminds like George R. R. Martin, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Brandon Sanderson are known for their boundless imaginations and creativity that have given us immense universes and worlds that even their characters have not fully explored.
If you’re like me, before setting out on a new adventure in a book, you want to know as much as possible about the geography of the strange and foreign lands in order to better understand the characters and events of the novel, but that isn’t always easy to do. Luckily for fans of The Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire series, maps have typically been included within the books. Even the HBO adaptation Game of Thrones starts off each episode with a moving map to help us understand where the episode’s events will take place. Even so, if you’re not paying close attention, it’s easy to get lost.
Thanks to the dedicated Game of Thrones fans of the world, there are now plenty of resources to help you understand perfectly (and in beautiful detail) just where in the world the books’ and shows’ plots take place. Just click on any of them to make them larger!
