Whether you’re a book reader or show watcher, keeping track of all the deaths in George R R Martin’s magnum opus can be difficult. With season seven of Game Of Thrones just around the corner, you probably need a refresher course to sort the slain from the slayers. This infographic lays it all out neatly – and reveals the character with the most kills to date.
Winter is Coming recently made this graph that connects the destructive actions of characters and houses against their opponents. (Amusingly, of 215 named characters, the majority are now dead.)
It may surprise you that Jon Snow is officially the deadliest character on the show, with 11 named kills to his name. The ultra-sadistic Ramsay Bolton came in second, followed by Queen Cersei, Daenerys Targaryen and Arya Stark. (Girl power!) Despite being one of the most hated characters on the show with a penchant for indiscriminate murder, the late King Joffrey didn’t even make the top five.
It’s worth noting however, that the graph only counts murders where the victim was named. If we include various slavers and half the population of King’s Landing, Cersei and Daenerys would surely win. (Girl power, again!)
The graphic also ranks the most common causes of death – with stabbings and beheadings taking out the top spots. Living in Westeros sucks.
