People are mad at George R. R. Martin because he ruthlessly kills off their favorite characters, but they should probably be mad at him for PLAGIARISM. He totally stole the War of Five Kings and Queen Cersei and people murdering other people from British history. If you're anything like me and just hearing the word "history" makes you want to slump down in your seat and take a nap, then this TED-Ed video is for you.  Alex Gendler explains (with the help of pretty animation by Brett Underhill) the clear parallels between the plot of the A Song of Ice and Fire series and the history of the British monarchy. Although it's horrifying to imagine that someone like Joffrey really existed, it's definitely worth watching.
