Game of Thrones is quite an addictive show, and, naturally, people have their favorite characters. But what if I told you that some of those characters and even plot points look suspiciously similar to the ancient Indian epic “Mahabharat”? Let’s get the theories rolling, people!
1. Eddard Stark (GoT) | Yudhishtir (Mahabharat)
Remember that time in Mahabharat when Yudhishtir made a big mistake? Basically, the same happened to Eddard Stark in Game of Thrones. Both of them had lost everything to trust.
2. Stannis Baratheon (GoT) | Duryodhan (Mahabharat)
Both Stannis Baratheon, who thought throne was rightfully his, and Duryodhan, who believed that only he could rule the world, were wrong. They did have a huge ego problem, that’s for sure, and fought wars to prove themselves right. But in the end it didn’t really matter.
3. Littlefinger (GoT) | Shakuni (Mahabharat)
Littlefinger and Shakuni both are genius politicians, shouting orders from the back rows, and there’s nothing sacred for them. They may seem like insignificant characters at the beginning but we should all watch out for their endgame.
