The wars that inspired Game of Thrones #SciFiSunday
Fun video from TedEd on the historical personalities and family feuds that are the basis for much of the drama on Game of Thrones.
Beginning around 1377, medieval England was shaken by a power struggle between two noble families, which spanned generations and involved a massive cast of characters, complex motives and shifting loyalties. Sound familiar? Alex Gendler illustrates how the historical conflict known as the Wars of the Roses served as the basis for much of the drama in Game of Thrones.
