Game of Thrones Every Betrayal

If you are a character in the world of Game of Thrones, chances are you will either be killed by someone you love and respect or you will be forced to kill someone you love and respect at some point in your life.

In fact, the surprising and brutal deaths have become the show’s calling card over the years, but when you have dozens of characters to keep track of, it can be difficult to remember who killed who.

Thankfully, data visualization site Venngage has put together an infographic that details every betrayal over the past five seasons, from Daenerys being sold to Drogo to Melisandre abandoning Stannis in his time of need.

All in all, the team was able to find 65 separate acts of betrayal, which they defined as “an act of going against one’s word, or an act of breaking the trust of a family member or ally.” It’s worth noting that Venngage only pulled information from the show to create this infographic, so don’t expect any book-only betrayals to pop up.

“We examined every act of betrayal in the last five seasons (again, to our knowledge) to see who betrayed who and what the outcomes of their betrayals were,” Venngage explains. “What we found was that in the Game of Thrones, to deceive is, usually, to come out on top. The characters who by the end of the fifth season have the most power have also committed the most acts of betrayal. Most of their victims are dead and their houses decimated.”

In other words, Petyr and Varys are killing it.
