What is Game of Thrones really about?

The HBO series “Game of Thrones,” which is based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series, centers on a number of noble families fighting for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

It’s a fantasy show set in an alternate version of medieval Europe where magic exists and dragons rule. The show centers on the fight between two noble families — the Starks and Lannisters — that have been at war for generations.

But the real story is much more complicated than that. It’s about power, corruption, honor and even love — but not in the way you might think it would be.

The true message behind Game of Thrones isn’t what people think it is

The philosophy behind Game of Thrones isn’t something that can be summed up in one sentence or paragraph. But there are some key themes that stand out from watching all seven seasons of the show:

Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely

All men must die; no one lives forever (even if they try)
