Challenging Joffrey's right to be king. Through a series of events, Ned Stark discovers that Joffrey and his siblings are not the offspring of Robert Baratheon. Their true father is their uncle Jamie Lannister meaning that Joffrey is not the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. In his attempt to use this information, Ned is betrayed and is executed for treason.
Hand of the King. In the first two seasons, there are three characters to hold this position. The first is Lord Jon Arryn who dies in the first episode. King Robert then appoints Lord Eddard Stark. Stark is later executed as ordered by King Joffrey. Joffrey chooses his grandfather Lord Tywin Lannister, but he is too involved in fighting the Starks and sends his dwarf-son Tyrion to act in his place.

Peter Dinklage. Dinklage may be small in stature, but he wields power and commands respect in his role of Tyrion Lannister, the Hand of the King. However, Tyrion is greatly disliked by his father Tywin Lannister because his wife died giving birth to the dwarf-sized son. His sister Cersei Lannister Baratheon despises him for the same reason. Tyrion must bear being called names such as "The Imp" and "Halfman".
Stannis Baratheon. Stannis' father was Steffon Baratheon, a brother of King Robert Baratheon, both of whom died. Robert's widow Cersei placed her fifteen year-old son Joffrey on the throne, but Joffrey was not Robert's biological heir, a fact that Cersei strove to keep secret. Since King Robert had no true heirs, Stannis should be the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Stannis said, "The Iron Throne is mine by right. All those that deny that are my foes."
Westeros. Almost all of the continent, with the exception of the Wall and lands beyond, is under the rule of the Seven Kingdoms. Westeros contains a variety of terrain including forests, mountains and deserts.
