Game of Thrones continues to impress us with its plot twists. Stories from behind the scenes of your favorite TV show can be just as interesting as the main plotlines. The Dothraki language has a vocabulary of over 3,000 words and continues to grow. The language was created by David Joshua Peterson for the TV series. The recipe for pigeon pie was not created by George R. R. Martin: he borrowed it from the 16th-century author Giovanni de’ Rosselli. Game of Thrones hit all the possible ratings and became the most pirated TV series of all time. In one episode, one of the spikes at the Red Keep displays the prosthetic head of a former President George Bush. The directors of the show sell replicas of the actual Iron Throne for $30,000 (height: 7′ 2″; weight: 350 pounds). A replica of Gandalf’s sword from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit is forged inside the Iron Throne. Sansa’s clothing has sent very deliberate messages to her allies and her enemies on multiple occasions. Her wedding dress tells us her life story: a trout and a wolf on the belt mean that she was born in House Stark and House Tully.
