About Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is HBO‘s adaptation of George R. R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire. The show has most recently completed its fourth season. Season five will likely premiere some time in 2015 on HBO.

The show itself, though, is just the most recent (and perhaps now the most visible) chapter in a large artistic endeavor by George R. R. Martin. It began with the books, the first of which (A Game of Thrones) appeared in 1996. So far, the series comprises five books, the most recent of which, A Dance with Dragons, was published in July of 2011. The Dothraki language is a part of the show, which itself is a part of the larger work.

This blog will focus primarily on the Dothraki language. If you’re interested in learning about and/or discussing the show or the books of A Song of Ice and Fire, there are a number of wonderful resources on the internet, several of which are listed below:
