The Most Searched Game of Thrones Great House in Your State
When you watch a fantasy series as epic and complex as HBO’s Game of Thrones on TV, it’s hard to stay off the internet about it. If you’re not sharing a hot take, maybe you’re nerding out over fan theories, or honestly, just trying to follow the plot better. With spinoff House of the Dragon coming in 2022 (but not soon enough), America is back at the GoT research. Take a gander at how the Great Houses of Westeros are trending today, and see which one your state can’t keep from following.

Game of Thrones Houses Ranked by National Search Volume

- House Targaryen was the most googled Great House of Westeros in 16 states, while House Tyrell was the most googled in 10 states.
- Although the Game of Thrones narrative centers several members of House Stark, only one state (New Hampshire) googled it more than other Great Houses.
- Across all states, however, House Stark had the most total search volume (the pack survives, baby!), pushing the controversial House Targaryen to second place.
- Washington, DC was the only US location that googled House Baratheon the most.
- The intense love-hate dynamic many viewers have with House Lannister did not push the notorious family to the top spot in many states—only four researched the Lannisters more than other noble houses.
- Of the 16 Houses that got the most search volume in at least one state, 8 were extinct by the end of the series.
