About This Quiz

The end of "Game of Thrones" threw the entire world for a loop. No one saw that final season coming and, for better or worse, we got a new ruler on the Iron Throne even though it may not have been the person anyone expected. The journey to get there was an incredible one, though, with so many twists and turns. But you could tell way back in season one when Ned Stark lost his head this show was not going to be the typical kind of story that just went through the paces of every other show. From the "Red Wedding" to the "Battle of the Bastards," this show went above and beyond in creating intense drama and breathtaking battles with characters we all loved or loved to hate.

Now if you had been in Westeros for the whole story, if you had journeyed with the Starks and traveled beyond the Wall, if you had sailed to Essos or fought the Sand Snakes in Dorne, would you have acquired the skills and powers to claim the Iron Throne for yourself? Could you have united the Seven Kingdoms? It's not too late to find out! Take the quiz! Valar Morghulis!
