Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while an ancient enemy returns after being dormant for thousands of years.
In the pilot episode, as the three boys are preparing for the King's welcome, Alfie Allen, Richard Madden, and Kit Harington tried to one-up each other in their shirtless scene by flexing and doing push-ups right before they went on-camera.
The opening pictures on the revolving metal rings show part of the history of Westeros. It begins with the conquest of Westeros by Aegon the Conqueror of House Targaryen, followed by Robert's Rebellion (where the Targaryens are deposed), and ending with the crowning of Robert Baratheon as King of the Seven Kingdoms.
