            @24:00 if Ares put the sword just out of Brandon's reach and only his neck was tethered, why didn't he just lay down on his back and pull the sword in closer with his legs? He would have had further reach than to grab it crawling in his knees

                  I can’t believe this is what the prequel is gonna b about the most boring part of the history imo .. Roberts rebellion dance of dragons doom of Valyrian Aragon’s conquest b way better

                                    Children of the Forest=Neanderthals. First Men=I1/I2 Nordic Paleolithic Protoeuropeans (example:Max von Sydow, or the right guy here Andals=R1B/R1A Neolithic Indo-europeans/Aryans. Just some thoughts :) I think the aryans came from the Kindu kush/Ladak-Kashmir valleys and invaded Europe. People who carry the Neanderthal and proto european DNA to this day are probably the smartest.

                                      I think Aerys was based on both Hitler and Stalin with a bit of Henry the eighth.

                                        I have a question, The vale is a perched up high up in an "impregnable" mountain top. Anytime any speaks of the castle in the Vale they are so proud that no army has been able to take the Vale or pass through the Bloody Gate. They said the winged knight flew to the mountain top on the back of a Giant Falcon to beat the Griffen King. And Aegean sister flew up on her Dragon to have the boy king bend a knee or yeild the Vale for a ride on her Dragon. Anyway, how was the castle built high up in the Vale when after you pass the Bloody Gate the only way to get to the castle in on the back of a donkey to a smaller castle more like a stable midway where you switch to fresh Donkey that walks up the mountain to sky castle where you get into oak buckets where large ox's pull where it rises you the 600 feet to the castle. So my question is if your choices are to fly up there or on the back of a donkey and pulled up the rest of the way like an mid evil elevator then how were they able to build a large ass castle up there?

                                          this was super cool and I loved every moment of this!!!! I really enjoyed seeing the perspectives through different characters of history; however, where was Dorne? Dorne is so underrated; I wish it was represented in this.

                                                  Am I getting mad, or the narration is made by some of Game of Thrones actors? I can recognise voices and accents of Catelyn, Viserys, Robert, Robb and Bran... seems to me too much for a coincidence.

The lore stuff is really interesting and provides some great background knowledge for the Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire universe. Though I might be wrong it seems that some of these scenes (clips?) are perspective based ex. Robert Baratheon's piece about his rebellion. He is saying what he believes to be true and based on his (probably limited) knowledge of the event (which seems to be confirmed with the recent season of Game of Thrones - have not seen it myself yet). Anyway thanks for putting this up I really love learning about stuff like this. :)

Although it does show the Targaryens were the villains, it tries to not make the story one sided and it tries to not make the story a simple of good vs evil. Viserys was protected by his mother Rhaella from his father's madness so he did not see him as a mad man so to see him defend his father made the story seem more realistic.

                                                                        • Hank Hill
