VoK 150: The Anarchy (1135-1154) and ASOIAF


images-10

Join Nadia, Bina007 and Joseph (Ciao.Gamer) for the second in our series examining the parallels between history and George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.  In this episode we cover The Anarchy – a period of civil war in England and France in the twelfth century.  We draw parallels to the events of The Princess and the Queen; ship SanStan and discover that sometimes history ends with a whimper rather than a bang.

Please note that this episode spoils all published works in the Song of Ice and Fire series as well as the prequel novellas.
