The Game of Thrones universe is one of the most brilliantly complex and utterly frustrating fictional universes ever created. But it is a fictional universe, and the only rule of a fictional universe is that it is SELF-consistent. It doesn't have to agree with our science, or logic, or even our commonly agreed-upon moral code that says killing people is not a good thing. There is only one god in that universe, and his name is George RR Martin.
But despite that, many things in Game of Thrones can be linked to the real, actual world, drawing inspiration as if through the thirsty roots of a weirwood tree. Many of these connections are interpreted by fans, but some have been verified by the bearded man himself. There are the many competing religious philosophies, the many, many, many similarities to real-life historical characters or the fact that they look like us?
