The long-awaited season finale of the fifth season of HBO’s hit series ‘Game of Thrones’ got over. With it what also came to end was another season of sex, scheming and scandal. The only thing that still remains consistent is the fight to win the ultimate throne; as the various houses and kingdom are still fighting till the last blood to attain this glory.
The television drama is based on novelist George RR Martin’s series that has kept viewers across the globe hooked. And even though the story is deeply rooted in fantasy, still Game of Thrones has manages to teach us important lessons about life in the real world. Here are ten universal truths which extend far beyond the Seven Kingdoms of Game of Thrones.
Ned Stark’s death came as a shocker to many. But the man should have known better than trusting the likes of Littlefinger.
2. Bravery comes with a cost
Jon Snow fans are yet to recover from this one! With hopes that he comes back in Season 6. He was betrayed by his own!

5. Everybody makes mistakes
Sansa Stark’s fell in love with the wrong guy and since then she has paid the price of with the life of her family.

8. Life is unfair
This was perhaps one of the most brutal scene in Game of Thrones. I mean killing an unborn child in the womb is just way to… I don’t even have the words to describe it..
