Beards of Game of Thrones

No spoilers, just great beards.

I have a confession to make. I’m not even close to up to date on Game of Thrones! But I admire it from a distance, until I can sacrifice the hours (days?) it would take to get up to speed.

I admire the fantasy world, the success, the adoration of the fanbase. the talented actors that brought the odd bits I have seen to life. But there’s one thing I admire above all else in Game of Thrones…

I admire the beards.

So much so I was compelled to do this…


See? I’m a fan, even if I’m not an up to date fan. And now I get to write about beards too.

You won’t have to worry about me giving away any spoilers here, just beardy goodness. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned – don’t get attached to any of them! Such is the cruelty of Game of Thrones.

Prepare yourself. Beards are coming…


Khal Drogo. I know right? You could get lost in that beard. And wouldn’t that be just wonderful?

There really are no words for the beauty of this beard. In fact, I’m struggling to form words…

What was I doing again…? Oh, beards.

Jon Snow

Jon Snow. Contain your beardgasms.

So he doesn’t have the length and the girth that Khal was blessed with, that doesn’t make his beard any less beautiful. Apparently he knows nothing, but I bet he knows a thing or two about good beard oils and grooming.

Pick your jaw up, it’s about to drop again…


The Mountain. With a beard like that, you don’t need a name. You need a title worthy of that majesty.

Look how his beard glistens beautifully with the blood of his enemies. Total dreamboat, right? Think of all the fondling as you stare longingly in to the beard.

Tear your eyes away, there’s more hairy goodness…

Robb Stark

Robb Stark. Beauty never looked so beardy.

Serving a carefully trimmed and groomed number that highlights that godly jawline. It’s hard to look away, but remember – his eyes are up here. Though I’m sure a beard rub wouldn’t go amiss.

Oh, there’s more…

Tyrion Lannister

Tyrion Lannister. Those eyes. The smoulder. That beard…

He has the whole package right there, that beard is practically godly. A beard that could turn any frown upside-down (just not his own, apparently).

No Game of Thrones beard list could be complete without…

Eddard Stark

Eddard Stark. Take in all that majesty.

I don’t know about you, but I have a bad feeling about this one. I’m a little wary about getting attached. And yet, I’m drawn in by the beauty of those bristles.

I need a moment…
