With the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones in full swing, you may need to refresh your knowledge on who exactly is related to who in Westeros.

The expansive world of Westeros, created by George RR Martin, has been fleshed out by showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss ever since the first episode aired on HBO back in 2011.

Every season that followed introduced a brand new family and set of characters attempting to make a play for the Iron Throne.

Now Jon Snow (Kit Harington) has discovered his true Targaryen heritage, an extensive family tree is more in need than ever – and we have you sorted.

Below is a list of all the families, marriages and children – as well as some illicit romances – you should have on your radar ahead of the final run of episodes.

The final season of Game of Thrones continues every Sunday.

You can find our extensive ranking of every character – from worst to best here.

The show will be available on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK.
