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 main title sequence was designed by the company Elastic, and was conceived as a three-dimensional map of the show's world, created by "a mad monk, in a tower somewhere" who is keeping track of all the action. As a rule, four locations are always shown in the main title sequence, regardless of whether the episode has scenes set there: King's Landing, Winterfell, the Wall, and wherever Daenerys is. King's Landing is always shown first, with the crowned stag of House Baratheon. Winterfell is shown first in the hands of House Stark, then sacked and torched, and later with the House Bolton sigil. The Wall is the last main shot before the camera pans to Essos. Furthermore, no specific animation is used for locations that are only seen a few times in the series, so the capital of that region is shown instead: e.g. the Eyrie represents most actions occurring in the Vale. Due to time constraints, the sequence can only shows up to six locations, with certain animations sped up to allow the camera time to pan around the map.
Any man who must say "I am the king" is no true king.
During the opening credits, each cast member's name is accompanied by the insignia of his/her character's house.
