Dead Game of Thrones characters are a dime a dozen. Anyone even kind of familiar with the show knows how violent it is. Nearly 200 named characters died over the first six seasons. And with so many deaths, it's hard to remember the names of even some main characters who have died on the show. So how many do you remember?
Do you remember the name of this dragon lady's brother?
Viserys Targaryen had a little squabble with his brother-in-law, Khal Drogo. He didn't win.
Do you remember the name of the man who taught Arya how to fight?
Syrio Forel was killed defending Arya by Ser Meryn, although we do not see him die.
The Wrong Hand
Do you remember the name of the patriarch whose death came as a shock to viewers? (Those who didn't read the books, that is.)
