Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while an ancient enemy returns after being dormant for thousands of years.
The 6 foot 3 inch Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) has stated that the most grueling scene she ever had to play in the series was in Game of Thrones: The Children (2014) when she fought sword-to-sword with 6 foot 6 inch Rory McCann ('The Hound'). She spent 2 months training, 3-4 days a week with swordmaster C.C. Smiff, just to build up the required stamina for her fight scene.
If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.
During the opening credits, each cast member's name is accompanied by the insignia of his/her character's house.
