9 Times Actual History Was More Fucked Up Than "Game Of Thrones"
Blood, incest, betrayal, more blood.
1. The Red Wedding
2. The Lannisters vs the Starks
What happened in Game of Thrones: King Joffrey, fruit of incest, is without a doubt one of the darkest, most fucked-up people in the dark and fucked-up land of Westeros. Highlights of his reign include shooting a prostitute at close range with a crossbow, and ordering the beheading of his fiancé’s father right before her eyes.
True-life horror – Edward of Lancaster, heir to the English throne 1453–71
Prince Edward (who was also rumoured to be illegitimate) was by all accounts a bloodthirsty little tyrant much like Joffrey. By the age of 13, his hobbies and interests included cutting off heads, war, and randomly attacking his friends with his sword or lance just for lols.
