Martin set out to make the story feel more like historical fiction than contemporary fantasy, with less emphasis on magic and sorcery and more on battles, political intrigue, and the characters, believing that magic should be used moderately in the epic fantasy genre.
In early seasons, under the influence of the A Song of Ice and Fire books, main characters were regularly killed off, and this was credited with developing tension among viewers.
Although the series' first season closely follows the events of the first novel, there were significant changes made for later seasons.
According to Benioff, the TV adaptation is "about adapting the series as a whole and following the map George laid out for us and hitting the major milestones, but not necessarily each of the stops along the way".
A principal inspiration for the novels is the English Wars of the Roses — between the houses of Lancaster and York , reflected in Martin's houses of Lannister and Stark.
The A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels was popular before Game of Thrones. Martin received multiple fantasy writing awards and nominations, including a World Fantasy Award and multiple Locus Awards , for the series.
In January , David Benioff had a telephone conversation with Martin's literary agent about the books he represented.
Having been a fan of fantasy fiction when he was younger, he became interested in A Song of Ice and Fire , which he had not read.
The literary agent sent Benioff the series' first four books. Weiss , and suggested that they adapt Martin's novels into a television series; Weiss finished the first novel in "maybe 36 hours".
According to Benioff, they won Martin over by knowing the answer to his question, " Who is Jon Snow's mother? Martin, author .
Before being approached by Benioff and Weiss, Martin had had meetings with other scriptwriters, most of whom wanted to adapt the series as a feature film.
Martin, however, deemed it "unfilmable", saying that the size of one of his novels is as long as The Lord of the Rings , which had been adapted as three feature films.
Benioff added, "a fantasy movie of this scope, financed by a major studio, would almost certainly need a PG rating. That means no sex, no blood, no profanity.
Fuck that. The series began development in January The intention was for each novel to yield a season's worth of episodes. Although HBO liked both drafts,  a pilot was not ordered until November Nina Gold and Robert Sterne were the series' primary casting directors.
The only exceptions were Peter Dinklage and Sean Bean, whom the writers wanted from the start; they were announced as joining the pilot in The role of Catelyn Stark was played initially by Jennifer Ehle , but the role was recast with Michelle Fairley.
Although many of the cast returned after the first season, the producers had many new characters to cast in each of the following seasons.
Because of the large number of new characters, Benioff and Weiss postponed introducing several key characters in the second season and merged several characters into one, or assigned plot functions to different characters.
Game of Thrones used seven writers over its six seasons. Benioff and Weiss wrote most of each season's episodes. Martin wrote one episode in each of the first four seasons.
Martin did not write an episode for the later seasons, since he wanted to focus on completing the sixth novel The Winds of Winter.
Cogman, initially a script coordinator for the series,  was promoted to producer for the fifth season. Cogman, who wrote at least one episode for the first five seasons, was the only other writer in the writers' room with Benioff and Weiss.
Dave Hill joined the writing staff for the fifth season after working as an assistant to Benioff and Weiss. Benioff and Weiss sometimes assigned characters to particular writers; for example, Cogman was assigned to Arya Stark for the fourth season.
The writers spent several weeks writing a character outline, including what material from the novels to use and the overarching themes.
After these individual outlines were completed, they spent another two to three weeks discussing each main character's individual arc and arranging them episode by episode.
Cogman, who wrote two episodes for the fifth season, took a month and a half to complete both scripts. They were then read by Benioff and Weiss, who made notes, and parts of the script were rewritten.
All ten episodes were written before filming began since they were shot out of order by two units in different countries.
They then passed the drafts back and forth to make notes and do rewrites. After Game of Thrones story line began outpacing the published novels in the sixth season, the series was based on a plot outline of the future novels provided by Martin along with original content.
The first two seasons adapted one novel each. For the later seasons, its creators saw Game of Thrones as an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire as a whole rather than the individual novels,  enabling them to move events across novels as the screen adaptation required.
Principal photography for the first season was scheduled to begin on July 26, ;  the primary location was the Paint Hall Studios in Belfast , Northern Ireland.
The first season's southern scenes were filmed in Malta , a change in location from the pilot episode's Moroccan sets. Angelo and St. Dominic monastery all used for scenes in the Red Keep.
The Walls of Dubrovnik and Fort Lovrijenac were used for scenes in King's Landing, though, exteriors of some local buildings in the series, for example, the Red Keep and the Sept of Baelor, are computer-generated.
Dominic monastery in the coastal town of Trogir , the Rector's Palace in Dubrovnik, and the Dubac quarry a few kilometers east were used for scenes set in Qarth.
Third-season production returned to Dubrovnik, with the Walls of Dubrovnik, Fort Lovrijenac and nearby locations again used for scenes in King's Landing and the Red Keep.
The third season also returned to Morocco including the city of Essaouira to film Daenerys' scenes in Essos. The sixth season, which began filming in July , returned to Spain and filmed in Navarra , Guadalajara , Seville, Almeria , Girona and Peniscola.
Northern Ireland Screen , a UK government agency financed by Invest NI and the European Regional Development Fund , helped fund Game of Thrones.
Tourism organizations elsewhere reported increases in bookings after their locations appeared in Game of Thrones. Between and , Hotels.
Each ten-episode season of Game of Thrones had four to six directors, who usually directed back-to-back episodes.
Weiss have directed two episodes together but were credited with only one each, which was determined after a coin toss.
Michele Clapton was the costume designer for Game of Thrones ' first five seasons before she was replaced by April Ferry. At the beginning of the fourth season, Engelen's team was replaced by Jane Walker and her crew, composed of Ann McEwan and Barrie and Sarah Gower.
The designs for the series' costumes were inspired by several sources, such as Japanese and Persian armor. Björk 's Alexander McQueen high-neckline dresses inspired Margaery Tyrell's funnel-neck outfit, and prostitutes' dresses were designed for easy removal.
About two dozen wigs were used by the actresses. Applying the wigs was time-consuming; Emilia Clarke, for example, required about two hours to style her brunette hair with a platinum-blonde wig and braids.
Other actors, such as Jack Gleeson and Sophie Turner, received frequent hair coloring. For characters such as Daenerys Clarke and her Dothraki, their hair, wigs and costumes were processed to appear as if they had not been washed for weeks.
For the large number of visual effects used in the series, HBO hired British-based BlueBolt and Irish-based Screen Scene for season one.
Most of the environment builds were done as 2. Because the effects became more complex in subsequent seasons including CGI creatures, fire, and water , German-based Pixomondo became the lead visual effects producer; nine of its twelve facilities contributed to the project for season two, with Stuttgart the lead studio.
HBO added German-based Mackevision to the project in season four. Additional producers for season four included Canadian-based Rodeo FX , German-based Scanline VFX and US-based BAKED FX.
The muscle and wing movements of the adolescent dragons in seasons four and five were based largely on those of a chicken. Pixomondo retained a team of 22 to 30 people focused solely on visualizing Daenerys Targaryen's dragons, with the average production time per season of 20 to 22 weeks.
The series' title sequence was created for HBO by production studio Elastic. The map is projected on the inside of a sphere which is centrally lit by a small sun in an armillary sphere.
Accompanied by the title music , the names of the principal cast and creative staff appear. The sequence concludes after about 90 seconds with the title card and brief opening credits detailing the episode's writer s and director.
Its composition changes as the story progresses, with new locations replacing those featuring less prominently or not at all. Ramin Djawadi composed the series' music.
Daenerys Targaryen's theme was simple and became more complex after each season. At first, her theme was played by a single instrument, a cello , and Djawadi later incorporated more instruments into it.
The Westerosi characters of Game of Thrones speak British-accented English, often but not consistently with the accent of the English region corresponding to the character's Westerosi region.
Although the common language of Westeros is represented as English, the producers charged linguist David J.
Peterson with constructing Dothraki and Valyrian languages based on the few words in the novels. Game of Thrones was broadcast by HBO in the United States and by its local subsidiaries or other pay television services in other countries, at the same time as in the US or weeks or months later.
On January 23, , the last two episodes of season four were shown in IMAX theaters across the United States, the first television series to be shown in this format.
The ten episodes of the first season of Game of Thrones were released as a DVD and Blu-ray box set on March 6, The box set includes extra background and behind-the-scenes material but no deleted scenes, since nearly all the footage shot for the first season was used.
The series also set an HBO-series record for digital-download sales. A paperweight in the shape of a dragon egg is included in the set.
DVD-Blu-ray box sets and digital downloads of the second season became available on February 19, The home release also included behind-the-scenes footage and cast commentary.
Game of Thrones has been widely pirated , primarily outside the US. In , to combat unauthorized downloads, HBO said it intended to make its content more widely available within a week of the US premiere including HBO Go.
Observers, including series director David Petrarca and Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes , said that illegal downloads did not hurt the series' prospects; it benefited from " buzz " and social commentary, and the high piracy rate did not significantly translate into lost subscriptions.
Series co-creator D. Weiss had mixed feelings, saying that the series was expensive to produce and "if it doesn't make the money back, then it ceases to exist".
However, he was pleased that so many people "enjoy the show so much they can't wait to get their hands on it. Game of Thrones , particularly the first seven seasons, received critical acclaim, although the series' frequent use of nudity and violence has been criticized.
The series has an overall rating of 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. First-season reviewers said the series had high production values, a fully realized world and compelling characters.
Fully produced by the pay cabler and already a global phenomenon after only one season, the fantasy skein was a gamble that has paid off handsomely.
Entertainment Weekly praised its "vivid, vital, and just plain fun" storytelling  and, according to The Hollywood Reporter , the series made a "strong case for being one of TV's best series"; its seriousness made it the only drama comparable to Mad Men or Breaking Bad.
The critical response for season three was also positive. Matt Fowler of IGN said the series was "still quite marvelous" praising the character development.
Time criticized the repetitive story lines early in the season, however, its reviewer praised the " Battle of the Bastards " episode as "one of the show's very best".
The show's final two seasons, especially season eight, received more criticism. Season seven was praised for its action sequences and focused central characters, but received criticism for its pace and plot developments that "defied logic".
A petition on Change. The cast performances were praised throughout the show's run. Peter Dinklage's "charming, morally ambiguous, and self-aware"  portrayal of Tyrion, which earned him Emmy and Golden Globe awards, was noted.
Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly gave the series a 'B' rating, saying that it was ultimately "okay".
With both "transcendent moments" and "miserable phases", it was "beloved enough to be criticized by everyone for something".
Franich described seasons three and four as "relentless", seasons six's ending having a "killer one-two punch", while seasons seven and eight were "indifferent".
Alan Sepinwall , writing for Rolling Stone , placed the series on his "50 Best TV Shows of the s" list, saying its "ability to most of the time keep all of its disparate threads feeling vital and tied to one another, remains a staggering achievement".
Despite its otherwise enthusiastic reception by critics, Game of Thrones has been criticized for the amount of female nudity, violence, and sexual violence it depicts, and for the manner in which it depicts these themes.
Martin responded that he felt obliged to be truthful about history and human nature, and that rape and sexual violence are common in war; and that omitting them from the narrative would have rung false and undermined one of his novels' themes , its historical realism.
The amount of sex and nudity in the series, especially in scenes incidental to the plot, was the focus of much of the criticism aimed at it in its first and second seasons.
Stephen Dillane, who portrays Stannis Baratheon, likened the series' frequent explicit scenes to "German porn from the s".
The episode " The Bear and the Maiden Fair " in the third season featured the lengthy torture and eventual emasculation of Theon Greyjoy prompted criticism.
According to Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times , the scene caused outrage, in part because of comments by director Alex Graves that the scene became "consensual by the end".
Club wrote that the series' choice to portray this sexual act, and a similar one between Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo in the first season—both described as consensual in the source novels—as a rape appeared to be an act of "exploitation for shock value".
In the fifth season's episode "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", Sansa Stark is raped by Ramsay Bolton. Most reviewers and publications found the scene gratuitous and artistically unnecessary.
The lighting, or lack of light, in darker scenes has been a recurring point of criticism since season six of the series.
In a interview, Robert McLachlan , a cinematographer working on the show, explained the lack of lighting as an artistic choice saying "we're trying to be as naturalistic as possible".
Although Game of Thrones was dismissed by some critics,  its success has been credited with an increase in the fantasy genre's popularity.
The series' popularity led to increased sales of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels republished in tie-in editions , which remained at the top of bestseller lists for months.
The success of the genre has been attributed by writers to a longing for escapism in popular culture, frequent female nudity and a skill in balancing lighthearted and serious topics dragons and politics, for example which provided it with a prestige enjoyed by conventional, top-tier drama series.
Game of Thrones has added to the popular vocabulary. A first-season scene in which Petyr Baelish explains his motives or background while prostitutes have sex in the background gave rise to the word "sexposition" for providing exposition with sex and nudity.
In , singer-songwriter Taylor Swift told Entertainment Weekly that several songs on her album Reputation were inspired by Game of Thrones characters and plots.
In the novels and the TV series, "khaleesi" is not a name, but the title of the wife of a "khal" warlord in the Dothraki language, held by Daenerys Targaryen.
Game of Thrones has also become a subject of both academic and scientific inquiry. In , Australian scientists conducted a survival analysis and examined the mortality among important characters during the first seven seasons of Game of Thrones.
A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones have a broad, active international fan base. In Vulture ranked the series' fans as the most devoted in popular culture, more so than those of Lady Gaga , Justin Bieber , Harry Potter or Star Wars.
BBC News said in that "the passion and the extreme devotion of fans" had created a phenomenon, unlike anything related to other popular TV series, manifesting itself in fan fiction ,  Game of Thrones -themed burlesque routines and parents naming their children after series characters; writers quoted attributed this success to the rich detail, moral ambiguity, sexual explicitness and epic scale of the series and novels.
As of [update] , about 58 percent of series viewers were male and 42 percent female, and the average male viewer was 41 years old.
Game of Thrones has won numerous of awards throughout its run, including 59 Emmy Awards, eight Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Peabody Award ; it holds the Emmy-award records for both most wins for a scripted television series, surpassing the record of 37 wins held by Frasier since , and for most nominations for a drama with Game of Thrones was considered a ratings success for HBO throughout all eight seasons.
The season two finale of Barry had a viewership of 2. Game of Thrones also set viewership records outside the United States on pay-television channels in the United Kingdom with a average audience of more than five million on all platforms  and Australia with a cumulative average audience of 1.
Between season one and season seven, 7-day viewers, the number of both DVR and video on demand views during the week after the episode broadcast, grew from 3.
The series and the novels have inspired several video games. The strategy game Game of Thrones Ascent ties into the HBO series, making characters and settings available to players as they appear on television.
HBO has licensed a variety of merchandise based on Game of Thrones , including games , replica weapons and armor, jewelry, bobblehead dolls by Funko , beer by Ommegang and apparel.
Thronecast : The Official Guide to Game of Thrones , a series of podcasts presented by Geoff Lloyd and produced by Koink, has been released on the Sky Atlantic website and the UK iTunes store during the series' run; a new podcast, with analysis and cast interviews, is released after each episode.

Each season's Blu-ray and DVD set contains several short animated sequences narrated by the cast playing their characters as they detail events in the history of Westeros.
The series focuses on Aegon Targaryen's conquest of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. In May , after years of speculation about possible successor series , HBO commissioned Max Borenstein , Jane Goldman , Brian Helgeland , Carly Wray , and Bryan Cogman to develop five individual Game of Thrones successor series;  the writers were to be working individually with George R.
Martin, who also co-wrote two of the scripts. Weiss and David Benioff said that they would not be involved with any of the projects.
Martin said that all the concepts under discussion were prequels, although he believes the term "successor show" applies better to these projects, as they are not Game of Thrones spin-offs in the traditional sense.
He ruled out Robert's Rebellion the overthrow of Daenerys' father by Robert Baratheon as a possible idea and revealed that some may be set outside Westeros.
On June 8, , HBO commissioned a pilot to a Game of Thrones prequel series from Goldman as showrunner and Martin as co-creator.
Notable events of that period include the foundation of powerful Houses, the Long Night when the White Walkers first descended upon Westeros, and the Andal Invasion when the Andals invaded from Essos and conquered most of Westeros.
Clarkson was announced to direct and executive produce the pilot,  while Naomi Watts was cast as the female lead playing "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret".
In September , Nellie Andreeva of Deadline Hollywood reported that a second prequel from Martin and Ryan Condal that "tracks the beginning of the end for House Targaryen" was close to receiving a pilot order from HBO; the project is not considered an original sixth script, as it builds upon Cogman's idea from The episode series is to be based on material from Fire and Blood , executive produced by Martin, Vince Gerardis, Condal, and Miguel Sapochnik; the latter two are to be its showrunners as well.

Davor war sie ein Nebencharakter der zweiten und dritten Staffel. Sie wird von Gwendoline Christie verkörpert und erscheint zum ersten Mal in der dritten Episode der zweiten Staffel.
Sie stammt aus dem Hause Tarth und ist die einzige Tochter von Lord Selwyn Tarth , dem Lord von Dämmerhall auf der Insel Tarth. Viele Jungen waren dort und wollten mit ihr tanzen und sagten ihr, dass sie wunderschön sei, doch hinter ihrem Rücken lachten sie über Brienne.
Als Brienne das merkte und vom Ball fliehen wollte, hielt Renly Baratheon sie auf und sagte ihr, dass niemand ihre Tränen sehen sollte.
Er tanzte den ganzen Abend nur mit ihr. Ab diesem Tag schwor sie sich, ihm zu dienen und an seiner Seite zu kämpfen, sollte es so weit kommen.
Bei einem Turnier vor König Renly gewann sie den Zweikampf mit Loras Tyrell und bat Renly, ihm in seiner Königsgarde dienen zu dürfen.
Nach Renlys Tod tritt sie in die Dienste Catelyn Starks und wird mit dem Austausch von Jaime Lennister gegen Arya und Sansa Stark betraut, scheitert allerdings.
Danach begleitet sie Jaime in die Hauptstadt und begibt sich auf die Suche nach den Stark-Töchtern. Sie findet Sansa und folgt ihr, zunächst heimlich, nach Winterfell.
Nach ihrer Flucht stellt sich Brienne in Sansas Dienste. Später wird sie von Jaime zum Ritter schlagen, die erste weibliche in der Geschichte der Sieben Königslande.
Nach der Thronbesteigung von König Brandon I. Stark wird Brienne zur neuen Lord Kommandantin der Königsgarde ernannt, ebenfalls die erste weibliche Person in dieser Position.
Zu Beginn der zweiten Staffel befindet sich Brienne in den Sturmlanden mit Renly Baratheon und seinen Truppen. In einem eindrucksvollen Turniersieg gegen Loras Tyrell begeistert sie ihn und seine Schwester Margaery.
Als Anerkennung für ihre Stärke im Kampf gewährt Renly ihr einen Wunsch und sie bittet ihn, ein Mitglied seiner Königsgarde werden zu dürfen.
Während des mysteriösen, tödlichen Angriffs des Schattens von Melisandre auf Renly sind Catelyn Stark und auch Brienne anwesend. Beide können nur fassungslos zuschauen, als ihn die Klinge von hinten durchbohrt.
Brienne fällt schreiend auf die Knie, Renly in ihren Armen. Schnell kommen Ser Emmon Cuy und Ser Robar Rois , zwei weitere von Renlys Königsgardisten, ins Zelt gestürmt und halten Brienne für die Mörderin.
Sie ziehen ihre Schwerter, können jedoch von Brienne getötet werden. Sie flieht zusammen mit Catelyn. Während ihrer Flucht schwört sie Catelyn einen Treueeid, nachdem diese sie von absurden Rachegedanken gegen Stannis Baratheon abgebracht hat.
Sie will ihre beiden Töchter Sansa und Arya, die Gefangene der Lennisters in Königsmund sind, gegen Jaime austauschen. Dafür schickt sie Brienne mit dem Gefangenen in die Hauptstadt.
Trotzdem nimmt Brienne sich ein Ruderboot und rudert mit Jaime gen Süden. Währenddessen lässt Jaime keine Gelegenheit aus, sich über Brienne lustig zu machen oder sie zu provozieren.
Als sie kurze Zeit später an Land sind, entdecken sie drei junge Mädchen, die man an einem Baum aufgehängt hat. Ziemlich schnell tauchen drei Soldaten der Starks auf.
Da nur Catelyn den Austausch befohlen hat und Robb dagegen gewesen ist, dürfen sie nicht erkannt werden. Sie erfinden eine Geschichte und sagen, dass Jaime ein gefangener Dieb aus Aschmark sei.
Doch die Soldaten bleiben skeptisch. Einer sagt, sie sollen gleichzeitig Jaimes Namen sagen, wenn die Geschichte stimme.
In diesem Moment ziehen alle ihre Schwerter und Brienne erschlägt blitzschnell zwei von ihnen. Der letzte gibt vorher zu, nur zweien der drei aufgehängten Mädchen einen schnellen Tod gewährt zu haben.
Daraufhin tötet Brienne ihn langsam und qualvoll. Jaime schaut erschrocken, da er ihr solch eine Brutalität und solch ein Geschick mit Waffen nicht zugetraut hätte.
Jaime und Brienne begegnen einem alten Bauern.
