George R. R. Martin has created a vast world in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series. That world has translated nicely to the "Game of Thrones" television series on HBO. A writer's muse can draw from many different places, and Martin has shown that his extensive research can bring a lot of great storylines. When it comes to writing medieval fantasy, you have to know how societies work, and it's clear that Martin had a great understanding of societal structures and how a title can make or break someone's life. He's put that information on the page in such a way that readers don't necessarily have to understand feudalism to understand that a lord outranks a ward, but a king outranks a lord, and these titles can shape the fates of each of these people.
If you understand the societal structure of Westeros, you're probably wondering where you would fall in the areas of birthright and bloodlines. You've probably even asked yourself if you would be a king, lord, ser or ward and what this would mean for you and your family.
