1. Game of Thrones Family Trees of All Houses

The Game of Thrones universe is a huge universe consisting of multiple families and houses. The most intriguing part of the show was that there was no one protagonist. Each viewer had their favorite character. Due to the extensivity of the storylines, one could find himself confused about character relationships.

1.1 Stark Family Tree

This template is the character relationship diagram of the Stark family in "Game of Thrones". The history of the Starks can be traced back to the heroic era thousands of years before the Game of Thrones story. Let's take a look at the specific content. Relationship diagram is an easy way to show the complex relationships, it is used in many fields, especially for books and movies. Check more details from this diagram.

1.2 Targaryen Family Tree

The next House on the list is the Targaryens, who were one of the most powerful houses on the continent of Westeros with a pack of dragons under their command. The story of House Targaryen begins with Aerys II, the Mad King. He was the King of the Seven Kingdoms before Robert Baratheon's rebellion. The main character of the house is Daenerys Targaryen. We see her gathering her army and building forces to take back what was rightfully hers throughout the series, the Iron Throne! For a while, she remained the only living Targaryen until it was revealed that Jon Snow was actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

The related drama television series-House of the dragon is on show now. House of the Dragon tells the story of an internal succession war within House Targaryen at the height of its power, 172 years before the birth of Daenerys Targaryen. More House of the Dragon examples.

1.3 Lannister Family Tree

Next comes one of the most interesting houses, the Lannisters. The family did not have dragons. Yet, their name reigned terror on their enemies. The might of House Lannister was something of great entertainment. When the series started, the head of the family was Tywin Lannister. After Tywin's death, his children took over House Lannister. Cersei, Jamie, and Tyrion were the next generation of the Lannisters. They were known for being cunning and tactful. The next generation of Lannisters consisted of Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen, who eventually died horrible deaths.

1.4 Baratheon Family Tree

There is not much to know about House Baratheon. The only key figure in this House was Robert Baratheon, who started a rebellion against the Mad King. After the war, he married Cersei Lannister to ally. They had three children: Joffery, Myrcella, and Tommen (but Robert was not their birth father). Also, Robert had many illegitimate children, all of whom were all killed except one, that is, Gendry Baratheon.

1.5 Greyjoy Family Tree

House Greyjoy was the House that ruled over the Iron Islands. At the start of the series, Balon Greyjoy led the Iron Islands. Still eventually, he got killed by his brother Euron Greyjoy. We also see a heart-touching brother-sister duo, Yara and Theon Greyjoy, who fought side by side to get back the Iron Islands.

1.6 Tyrell Family Tree

House Tyrell enters the realm of Game of Thrones when it forms a marriage alliance with House Baratheon. Margaery Tyrell marries Renly Baratheon, but after Renly gets killed, the Tyrells ally with the Lannisters. Margaery first marries Joffery and, after his death, Tommen. Although not exactly a Tyrell, Olenna plays a vital role in the series as the person who poisons Joffery Lannister, starting a chain of unfortunate events.

1.7 Martell Family Tree

House Martell comes into the scene in Season 4, when Prince Oberyn arrives in Kings Landing to attend the Royal wedding and his wife, Ellaria Sand. Prince Oberyn found himself in a fight against the Mountain, where he eventually got killed. His brother Doran Martell was killed by Ellaria due to difference of stance towards the Lannisters. The three daughters of Ellaria were also killed by the House of Lannister. Eventually, only Ellaria Sand is left alive.

1.8 Arryn Family Tree

House Arryn played a very small role in the series. Its significance only came forth when Petyr Baelish married Lysa Tully, widow of Jon Arryn. Petyr Baelish eventually used House Arryn to gain personal interests. However, after his death, Robin Arryn took charge. At the end of the series, Robin was one of the main lords of Westeros.

1.9 Tully Family Tree

Last but not least, House Tully. The main character in House Tully was Catelyn Tully, the wife of Ned Stark. Apart from that, we also have Lysa Tully, who married Jon Arryn and then Petyr Baelish. Throughout the series, this House seemed close to extinction. However, Edmure Tully survived and carried on the legacy, however weak it may be.
