Game of Thrones fans are a prolific and determined bunch. How prolific and determined? Well, at the recent Edinburgh International Literary Festival, the author of the epic fantasy saga, George R.R. Martin, says he's stopped reading online message boards for the show because, to his chagrin, he discovered a few fans have already accurately predicted how the series will end.

While Queen Elizabeth II didn't ascend to the Iron Throne when she visited the Game of Thrones set in Belfast, Ireland, that doesn't mean Her Majesty is immune to the charms of the HBO hit: Apparently her Guard can bust out a mean rendition of the show's catchy theme.

Thanks to the popularity of Game of Thrones, more people are naming their babies after Daenerys Targaryen than ever before. In 2013, more than twice as many parents chose to name their baby girls "Khaleesi" than chose its soundalike "Kelis," according to data from the Social Security Administration.
Which got us thinking: In ten years or so, parents are going to have a very hard time determining whether their children's new friends are named after a dragon queen from a fantasy series or a female rapper who was once married to Nas. So, future parents, here's a refresher on Kelis vs. Khaleesi. (And yes, we know "Khaleesi" is only a title. We'll have no complaining from book readers on this point.)

When Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season Sunday night, fans will get to enjoy the latest adventures in the reign of King Joffrey Baratheon, a blond tyrant who rules Westeros with an ironfisted combination of petulance and sadism. To celebrate Joffrey's impending nuptials, we've given him a wedding gift: a list of the horrible TV children just as bad as himself. Maybe they can have a playdate – just leave the crossbows at home.

His character Hodor on HBO's Game of Thrones is a gentle giant who lives and serves in the shadows. But after revealing that he's gay, actor Kristian Nairn has been catapulted into the spotlight.
"It's been everywhere, PEOPLE, CNN, all the way down to the little local paper in Belfast," the Irish actor, 38, told PEOPLE on March 18 at the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones at New York's Lincoln Theater. "I don't want to be a figurehead or anything, but if I can help one person, I'll be happy."
What he seems to be helping with most is combating stereotypes.

If Game of Thrones' Red Wedding episode is any indication of what's to come on Sunday's season 3 finale, a drink may be in order.
The mixologists at Grey Goose came up with the perfect libation to entertain guests at a viewing party – or dull the pain of another season ending.
"As a fan of the show, I was inspired by the strength and beauty of Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen and her striking white hair," Grey Goose brand ambassador, Guillaume Jubien, tells PEOPLE. "The cocktail needed to contain delicate flavors yet maintain character. A cocktail like this really takes your party to the next level."
