If You Can't Name All These GoT Characters, You're Not Ready For Season 8

Game of Thrones is a fantasy television series that was inspired by the novel series written by George R. R. Martin. There has been a total of seven seasons released for this show, and the premiere of the eighth season has finally arrived. What better way to prepare for the final season of this epic fantasy than to test your character knowledge?

One of the most appealing attributes of the show, after all, is its complex and large cast of characters. There are many different noble houses that are significant throughout the seasons, so many that it's difficult to name them all. There is House Baratheon, the family that sat on the Iron Throne for many seasons. House Stark, the family most known for having a lord be Warden of the North and rule over Winterfell. And there's House Lannister, which rules over Casterly Rock and eventually King's Landing, just to name a few.

All of the Great Houses in the Seven Kingdoms represent their family name by wearing their personal sigils. House Lannister is represented with a golden lion; House Greyjoy is represented with a golden Kraken; House Stark is represented with a grey Direwolf.

Not all of the characters in this quiz are highborns though some of them actually come from North of the Wall.

Question 1

What is the name of Cersei's youngest son?

Cersei has had many positions in King's Landing throughout the course of the show. She first began as the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms for she was married to King Robert, then she became Queen Regent when her son was crowned king, and not long after she crowned herself sole Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Although Cersei has done a lot of unkind things to ensure that her family (not just the Baratheons but the Lannisters) stay in power, everything she did was for the good of her children. She had two sons and a daughter, and unfortunately, she lost all of them.

Question 2

What is the name of the Stark children's mother?

This character played a major role in the first three seasons of the show Game of Thrones. Like a lot of the other maternal figures, this mother would do almost anything to protect her children. She sat on the edge of Bran's bed after he was crippled by Jaime. She stood by Robb's side while he became the King in the North after she lost her husband to the betrayal from the Lannisters. She fought bravely so she could one day be reunited with her two daughters, and even employed warriors to track them down and bring the girls home.

Question 3

What is the name of the youngest Lannister son?

This Game of Thrones character is part of the main cast throughout all of the seasons and is one of the many who have had substantial development. And no, we're not just talking about the epic beard he grows in the later seasons. From the very beginning, this Lannister boy makes it very clear that he wields words and knowledge more than a blade. For his entire life, he's been loathed by most of his family, and because of his size, he's had to learn new ways to defend himself. He's known for always using the phrase "a Lannister always pays his debts."

Question 4

What is the name of this Wildling?

This character played a secondary role on the show Game of Thrones until the final episode in Season four. She was known to the other characters as a Wildling because she lived North of the Wall, however she referred to herself as one of the Free Folk. She is first introduced when Jon and a number of other brothers from the Night's Watch are travelling beyond the wall. Although Jon had captured her, she manages to escape and they take Jon back to their own leader. Jon had no choice but to adapt in order to survive, and he and this character fall in love as a result.

Question 5

What is the name of this member of the Small Council?

The Small Council on the show Game of Thrones is just as it sounds: a council of a small group of people who offer advice and guidance to the King of the Seven Kingdoms. For the most part, the Small Council stays the same with each new ruler, and usually consists of people that the king can trust. For example, King Robert had asked Ned Stark to be the King's Hand because they were old friends and he knew he could rely on him. Later when King Joffrey was crowned, his uncle and then his grandfather were each the King's Hand for a time.

Question 6

What is the name of this female adviser of Daenerys?

When Daenerys Targaryen is introduced in Season 1 of Game of Thrones, she's merely a pawn for her brother to get what he wanted. He always claimed himself to be "the dragon," and Daenerys was sold to Khal Drogo for an alliance that would one day make Viserys king. Although she had many trials and tribulations to overcome, Daenerys stayed strong and triumphed. Although it would take her many seasons to be able to travel back to Westeros and take back the Iron Throne that was rightfully hers, she conquered Essos first. Along the way she met this character, who was just a translator at the time but then became Daenerys's own adviser.

Question 7

What is the name of Lord Roose Bolton's illegitimate son?

A lot of the main characters in Game of Thrones are all born from high lords and ladies in Westeros. For example, the Stark children's father is Lord Eddard Stark and their mother is Lady Catelyn Stark. Ned Stark was the Lord of Winterfell, and when he passed on his firstborn son became the new lord. There are other well-known families that live in Westeros which are called the "great houses." These include House Lannister, House Baratheon, House Tyrell, House Arryn, House Martell, and House Tully. But that's just to name a few. There are far more lords who serve the greater houses, such as Lord Bolton.

Question 8

Who is this son of the Iron Islands?

House Greyjoy is another one of the major families that are present in the show Game of Thrones. This character, in particular, played a major role in the first few seasons, and although he was featured less in later seasons, he is still important nonetheless. From a young age he was taken from the Iron Islands and raised in Winterfell with the Stark family. He had been Ned's ward, and although he was never a Stark they treated him like family. Unfortunately when he had the chance to return to the Iron Islands he turned his back on Robb and the others.

Question 9

Who is this female warrior?

The show Game of Thrones is notorious for its strong and somewhat ruthless characters. A lot of these characters are surprisingly women, and despite the fact that they're told to "be a lady" and let the men do the fighting, not all of them do. This character is one of those who choose not to conform to the normal expectations. In fact, she's often caught correcting people who address her as a lady, because she doesn't necessarily see herself as one. She is well train in sword fighting, and pledged herself to many nobles to be their own personal guard.

Question 10

Who is the Commander of the Unsullied?

This character is another one of the close associations of Daenerys Targaryen, one whom she met while conquering Essos. While she was rising up from the bottom as just a girl her brother used as a pawn, Dany was giving many different characters the freedom that they deserved. This character in particular was one that she helped give freedom to, when she purchased an army from an awful man. She told the army that they would fight for her as free men, but also gave them the choice to stay or not. As the Commander of the army, this character was also very close to Dany in later seasons.

Question 11

What is the name of King Robert's Brother?

King Robert had been the King of the Seven Kingdoms from the first episode in Game of Thrones. He had been king for many years prior to the pilot, although his actual time on the show was short. Although Jaime had been responsible for getting rid of the "Mad King," the Baratheons were the ones who ruled. King Robert was not much of a king though, or at least he wasn't one that had a lot of respect. His wife Cersei certainly didn't feel any love towards him, which explains why she was the one behind his passing. Although she was smart and made it look like an accident.

Question 12

Who is Ned and Catelyn's eldest daughter?

As it has been mentioned earlier in this quiz, Ned and Catelyn start had been the Lord and Lady of Winterfell, where they lived in the castle for many years.

She was then betrothed to King Joffrey, although she quickly realized how unkind he was. Nevertheless, she put on a brave face and managed to survive it all.

Question 13

Who is Ned and Catelyn's eldest son?

This is yet another question that pertains to the children of Ned and Catelyn Stark. As it has been mentioned earlier, Ned Stark was the Warden of the North and the Lord of Winterfell. Those responsibilities fell onto this character following the tragic events that took place in King's Landing. Although this character always knew that he would inherit such responsibilities, he certainly didn't expect it to happen so quickly. He made the decision that he would bring the fight to the south and seek revenge over what happened to his father. He gained a bit of a reputation because every battle he went to he never lost.

Question 14

What is the name of the Red Priestess?

This character is known as the Red Priestess, or simply the Red Woman, was a major character from season two onward. She is definitely one of the more mysterious characters on the show, for she is quite vague about her motivations and allegiances. She never went into much detail about why she was a counselor for the Lord of the Light, and why this lord wanted Stannis Baratheon to be the next king to sit on the Iron Throne. Regardless of the reasons though, the Red Priestess went to extreme lengths to ensure Stannis survived. Some of these things included hurting innocents or getting involved with dark magic.

Question 15

What is Sandor Clegane more commonly known as?

As it was mentioned in one of the earlier questions, Game of Thrones is known for its powerful warriors and soldiers.

He's not afraid to tell someone the truth or his opinion regardless if it's positive or not.

Question 16

Who is this character?

This is one of the more secondary characters on the show Game of Thrones as a whole, however he did play an important role for one of the Stark boys. He was introduced in season three as a bit of a mysterious character. Similar to the Red Priestess, who had associations with magic of some kind, this character was also mystical, or at least unique. He helps one of the Stark boys embrace and also learn about his abilities as a warg. Together they travel North of the Wall so that they could locate and meet with the infamous Three-Eyed-Raven.

Question 17

What is the name of this member of the Small Council?

The Small Council had been mentioned earlier in this quiz, but just to recap, its a select few citizens of Westeros who offer advice and assistance for the King of the Seven Kingdoms on a number of different things. Just to list some of the positions on the Small Council, there is the Master of Laws, Master of Ships, Hand of the King, Lord Commander of the City Watch, Master of Coin, and Master of Whisperers. Despite the fact that the Small Council each have their own specific duties to take care of in the kingdom, they still offer up their own personal opinions regardless of the topic.

Question 18

What is the name of this queen?

This character was part of the main cast from season two all the way until her departure in season six. She was characterized as being one of the more influential women, and didn't even need to lift a finger in order to get things done.

Throughout her time on the show, she was married to three kings, two of which were brothers. All she desired was to be the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, and for a short time, she had that.

Question 19

What is the name of this Lord?

As it has been mentioned a few times throughout this quiz already, Game of Thrones has a lot of lords who live in Westeros. Of course not all of them have such infamous names like Lannister or Stark, but they do have small armies and motivations of their own. Take House Bolton for example, although they did not have the power to take Winterfell from the Starks themselves, they did align themselves with other houses so they could get rid of them when they least expected it. From there, they earned themselves a bit of a reputation, one that meant no other north house would stand up against them.

Question 20

Who is this illegitimate son of King Robert?

Throughout this quiz there has been many questions that relate to the lords and ladies of Westeros and how they play an important role to the overall plot of the show. However, there are several characters who have at least one parent who is noble born, but they are still classified as an illegitimate heir. For example, from the very first episode of the show Jon Snow was constantly being reminded that he would never have the Stark name because he was not Catelyn's son. This was part of the reason he decided to join the Night's Watch in the first place.

Question 21

Who is this love interest of Tyrion?

In the early seasons of Game of Thrones, Tyrion had a few significant love interests, one of which was this character. Although they spent some time together while he was away from King's Landing, he started to develop feelings for her. Unfortunately he had experienced a tragic loss with one woman he loved, and was afraid of what his father would do if he found out about this one.

Question 22

What is the name of Daenerys's brother?

This character played a major role in the first season on Game of Thrones. For those who are unfamiliar with the families on the show, Daenerys Targaryen had two brothers on the show.

However, because of his behavior he got what he deserved.

Question 23

As it was mentioned earlier in this quiz, any person who lived North of the Wall was considered to be a Wildling.

In the first season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow makes the decision to travel to Castle Black to become a brother of the Night's Watch.
