Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Ramsay Bolton, Stannis Baratheon…
State: No mentions
Ramsay Bolton, portrayed by Iwan Rheon
None of those important characters have any mention on this map! While I’m not surprised about Stannis, as the actor himself said he didn’t care that much about the show, but I thought Jaime and Cersei Lannister were more popular than that! It seems like no American state is fond enough of brother/sister incestuous love to put them in first position! I’m also relieved that there isn’t a whole state that chose this complete psychopath Ramsay Bolton as their favourite character!
State: District of Columbia
The simple-minded servant of the House Stark is the most popular character in D.C. The capital city of the United States seems to like humble people working in the stables with a strong sense of duty! Maybe they’d need good Hodor to hold the door of the White House… (sorry to make you relive this tragic moment!).
Brienne of Tarth
Portrayed by Gwendoline Christie
Brienne of Tarth is an interesting character, a strong-willed person, a great fighter and the first woman knight in the universe of Game of Thrones! People of Alaska respect a tough survivor, maybe because they are used to live in difficult climatic conditions!
Eddard Stark (or Ned Stark) is the pivotal character of the whole Game of Thrones story, as what happens to him set in motion all the events! Minnesota’s population is fond of this honorable lord, which is probably the most benevolent character of the show! A big-hearted northern lord for the North Star State!
Jorah Mormont is an exiled Northern lord who swore fealty to Daenerys Targaryen, or is stuck in the friendzone, it depends on interpretation. I think the loyal spy Jorah is one of the characters with the most depth in the show, and good people from Maine seem to agree with me as he is the most popular character in the Pine Tree State!
The Queen Consort is one of the most attractive ladies in the universe of Game of Thrones but also one of the smartest women in the court! Her ambition might be devorant, but she is still loved by her people, and by the population of Iowa!
Sandor “The Hound” Clegane
Being the little brother of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane and the bodyguard of Prince Joffrey, Sandor is an impressive warrior with a taste for murder. However, he is not cynical and still has a code of honor, which seems to appeal to the Heart of Dixie as he is the most popular character in Alabama!
State: New Hampshire
Ygritte is a brave and smart spearwife of the Free Folk who became the lover of Jon Snow. People from New Hampshire must feel like they live on the other side of the Wall (no reference to United States’ actuality intended there), as they chose the young wildling as their number one character!
I agree with our friends of the Constitution State, the head of House Lannister is one of the most interesting character of the show! Tywin is the richest and maybe the most powerful man of the universe of Game of Thrones, with his pragmatic and ruthless personality. Would it show that people from Connecticut are obsessed with money and power? We won’t go that far and affirm that!
Jon Snow might not know much but he is still one of the most iconic characters of the show, being the main character of most of the action happening beyond the Wall. That’s why I was surprised when I realized he was only number one in one state: Massachusetts! The Night Watch seems to be trendy in the Pilgrim State!
States: Kansas, Oregon
Sansa Stark is too often reduced to her image of a whiny and weak, annoying damsel in distress character but she is more than that. Kansas and Oregon understood that landy Sansa is learning a lot from her traumatic experiences and that she is stronger than she looks!
States: Nebraska, Wisconsin
Physically crippled after a terrible incident that would have traumatized most, little Brandon Stark has some supernatural powers and uses them in the war against the Night King and his White Walkers! One of the most important characters in Game of Thrones, the Three-Eyed Raven is the most popular in Nebraska and Wisconsin!
States: Idaho, Montana, Wyoming
Arya Stark is one of the strongest woman character not only in Game of Thrones, but in the history of tv shows! Trained as an assassin after escaping a certain death and hungry for retribution, Arya is a capital character for the intrigue and the most popular one in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming!
Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish
States: Hawaii, Indiana, New Jersey, West Virginia
Each episode you see Petyr Baelish starting scheming, you know something interesting is going to happen! Through his use of intelligence and manipulation, this noble from a really minor extraction is one of the most influential people in King’s Landing! He is popular in a diverse array of states, from Hawaii to West Virginia, passing by Indiana and New Jersey!
States: Arkansas, Illinois, Rhode Island, Vermont
Alright, as Joffrey Baratheon is probably the most hated character in the history of tv shows it would be inaccurate to say he is popular in Arkansas, Illinois, Rhode Island and Vermont. However, he is the most researched Game of Thrones character in those states! Actor Jack Gleeson deserves a lot of credit for his portraying of the evil child king!
States: Missouri, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Virginia
Actor Peter Dinklage declared that before his role of Tyrion, he was always proposed roles of little persons without any depths. Indeed, the witful dwarf is one of the most fascinating character of the Game of Thrones universe! As sharp in mind as he like to enjoy life and its pleasure, Tyrion Lannister is the most popular in Missouri, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi and Virginia!
States: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma
Also called the Great Khal, Drogo is chieftain of the Dothraki people! This iconic barbaric warlord has never been defeated in battle and plan to invade Westeros with his horded! His savage brutality, martial prowess, gentle side as a lover and sense of honor seems to have made him really popular in the south of the United States! Indeed, he is the favorite Game of Thrones character in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, New Mexico and Oklahoma!
States: California, Colorado, Delaware, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington
Queen Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, also knows as Breaker of Chains, also known Mother of Dragons and many other titles is the most popular Game of Thrones in the United States by far! An impressive number of 16 states out of 50 claim Daenerys as their favorite character: the determined, ambitious and beautiful Queen conquered the heart of the USA!
