The world in the Game of thrones TV series is divided into four landmasses, with the main focus being on two of them- Westeros and Essos. The mythical land of Westeros is about 3,000 miles long and is politically divided into two parts- the land Beyond the Wall, and the Seven Kingdoms. Most of the story takes place on the continent of Westeros, particularly in a large political entity known as the Seven Kingdoms, which can be further divided into nine regions - the North, the Riverlands, the Iron Islands, the Stormlands, the Vale, the Westerlands, the Crownlands, the Reach, and Dorne, and a huge unmapped area to the north, separated by a massive wall of solid ice and old magic.
The plot in the Game of Thrones television series concerns the strife between the seven noble families and various other factions fighting and conspiring against each other to gain control of the Iron Throne of Westeros. With Kings and Queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men, lords and holy men all vying for power, oblivious of the dark forces that lie beyond an 800-foot wall of solid ice in the frozen north, watch as things unfold and shatter expectations in this epic fantasy series.
