As "Game of Thrones" untitled prequel starring Naomi Watts started shooting, author George R.R. Martin discloses intriguing facts about the TV series.

George R.R Martin just recently went on to reveals unknown facts about the prequel. In an interaction with media, George R.R. Martin gave some glimpse of the film which is currently filming in Northern Ireland.

Earlier, Game of Thrones' author let slip that the prequel is set in the background of Westeros 5000 years ago and there are much different from the time of the original series with the prequel. In Game of Thrones, Westeros is an expansive land which is divided into Seven Kingdoms.

Each Kingdom is ruled by different house and the King of Seven Kingdoms is the one who sits on the Iron Throne. However, in this prequel, Westeros is revealed to have a far larger number of 100 kingdoms.

"We talk about the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros; there were Seven Kingdoms at the time of Aegon's Conquest. But if you go back further then there are nine kingdoms and 12 kingdoms, and eventually you get back to where there are a hundred kingdoms - petty kingdoms - and that's the era we're talking about here," the book writer said.

Westeros prequel will have 100 kingdoms

If Westeros at the time of seven kingdoms has a false peace covered by the power struggles between the leader of the house and intensive politic feud, the fight in Westeros with 100 kingdoms is even far more epic. George R.R. Martin also confirmed the rule of Stark will be part of the story with their undying house symbol 'direwolves'. But he further made a shocking revelation that the White Walkers, mammonths also present.


"The Lannisters aren’t there yet, but Castlery Rock is certainly there; it’s like the Rock of Gibraltar. It’s actually occupied by the Casterlys - for whom it’s still named after in the time of Game of Thrones," he added.

Talking about Naomi Watts who is rumoured to take the lead role in the prequel, the writer/producer denied the information, saying: "As you know for Game of Thrones, we never even nominated anybody for lead actress or lead actor [during awards season] until recently; it was always for supporting [categories] because the show is such an ensemble."

Though Game of Thrones season 8 has turned out to be a big disappointment for fans all around the world, GoT fans surely still fascinates with the prequel. For now, the release date its title has not been decided yet.
