Now, for the sake of this video, we are going try to put to the side that Westeros is very obviously middle ages England and Essos, the other land featured prominently in the story is based on Europe and Mediterranean nations around the turn of the renascence. This was obviously an inspiration for George RR Martin, but the writer has gone beyond that and interlaced curiosities from many historic economies into a world that adds a layer of complexity and realism that isn’t present in typical fantasy stories of the genre. So, let’s explore how they work together and add to the narrative that drives The Game of Thrones.
