Game of Thrones secara kasar diadaptasi dari alur cerita A Song of Ice and Fire, yang berlatar tempat di kerajaan fiktif Seven Kingdoms di Westeros dan Essos. Serial ini menceritakan mengenai persaingan antar wangsa bangsawan dalam memperebutkan Takhta Besi, sementara wangsa lainnya berjuang untuk memerdekakan diri dari kerajaan.
