Season 1 (2011)

In Winterfell, Ned Stark becomes Hand of the King to Robert Baratheon, bringing his daughters, Sansa and Arya, with him to King’s Landing. Ned’s son, Bran, is paralyzed after stumbling upon Robert’s wife, Cersei Lannister, having sex with her brother, Jaime. Ned discovers that Robert and Cersei’s three children are in fact Jaime and Cersei’s three children, and are not rightful heirs to the throne. Following Robert’s death, however, Cersei’s eldest, Joffrey, is crowned. Ned’s refusal to recognize Joffrey as king leads to his execution. Meanwhile, Ned’s bastard son Jon Snow joins the Night’s Watch, an ancient order sworn to defend Westeros by maintaining the Wall. In Essos, the exiled Viserys Targaryen marries his sister, Daenerys, off to Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo in exchange for an army to take back Westeros, where his father was once king. Daenerys is gifted three dragon eggs while Viserys is eventually killed by Drogo, who later dies himself. Daenerys then hatches the dragon eggs, bringing dragons back into the world.
