Over the course of eight years, Game of Thrones dominated television. Millions of people grew to love (and loathe) characters like Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister. Despite arguably being the most talked about show in the history of television, Game of Thrones supplies an endless amount of questions even after its conclusion.

The show may be over, but the legend of Thrones may never die. With multiple spin-offs on the horizon, it is important to keep Thrones fresh in your mind. So, what do you say…do you have what it takes to survive in Westeros?
